Overview
The first axial flow combine transformed

the industry and was hailed as the most

significant piece of farm equipment built

in the 20th century. The axial flow used

advanced technology to process crops faster

and more efficiently than anything else on

the market.

The axial flow started with research

done by a rogue Swedish engineer in the

1950s, was continued in secret by a group of

dedicated engineers from East Moline, Illinois,

who did their work in a top-secret garage that

only a select few were allowed to enter.

The book tells the story of how extensive

research and development allowed IH to build

a new machine that took the market by storm.

Done with dozens of interviews of

engineers, salespeople, and customers, the

book captures the behind the scenes drama

and the cloak and dagger encounters with

rival companies personnel and machines.

The dramatic text is accompanied by more

than 300 archival images, concept drawings,

sketches, and new photogrpahy of the

machines and men at work
