In response to a request from a client, I’ve been doing some research into small-scale grain equipment, especially harvesting equipment. My research so far is included below.
Note that I haven’t used any of this equipment so do not take any of this as an endorsement and you should research it thoroughly on your own (and please tell me if you learn anything or have experience with any of this, or other similar, equipment).
