The combine and header are transported separately and the interesting thing about this header is that it can be towed without a special trailer. The wheels move into transport mode, a detactable long hitch hooks up the header to the pick-up. Once the destination is reached, then the hitch is removed and the tires are put back into position under the header and it is ready to go.

Thanks for stopping by ! Have to get some cookies baked for the crew as well as be on hand to run a moisture sample of the wheat into the grain elevators to see if we can harvest today (Monday), plus the song writer will be out later on this afternoon to film wheat harvest (hopefully) for his music video. Stay tuned I'll have more. All my best, Gayle.
