Sneak Peek Pictures: The Tribine New Machinery Concept Combination of a combine and a 1000 bushel grain cart. What do you think of the idea?

An innovative combination combine and grain cart called the Tribine is the
result of Indiana's Ben Dillons's idea and persistence over 12 years of work in
his farm shop.

The Tribine is a combine and grain cart in one articulated
unit that offers the first game changing new harvester architecture to come out
since self-propelled combines launched in the 1940s. Dillon’s modified AGCO
Combine moves the grain tank from the top of the machine to the rear, allowing
for a much larger hopper to be included.

The Tribine will be making its
world debut at the Ag Connect Expo that runs Jan. 29 to 31 in Kansas City. The
potential final commercial cost of the Tribine has not yet been determined, but
it does have the potential to fundamentally change the harvesting
market.

What does everyone think of the idea?

I like the way the machine is built and I personally think it has been designed to accept huge headers, just no talk of capacity yet from them
