Also posted below is the original invoice for our John Deere 7700 combine from years ago. It's amazing what the price of a "modern day" combine was back then. Today's cost of our combine is $350-400,000. However, today's combine will harvest 6 to 10 times more acres per day. Thank you to my father for finding this old invoice.
Bring on the warmer weather and spring!
