The John Deere 4400 combine represents an example of a classic agriculture machine that lives on more than 30 years after its manufacture. John Deere, a worldwide presence in farm equipment, built a combine from 1970 to 1979 that provided features and specifications that remain desirable. Combines changed the way crops are harvested and the 4400 was a part of that change.

Engine

Harvesting

The header, or device for corn that strips the stalk and leaf away from the ear, measures 13 feet by 20 feet and cover four to five rows. It's listed as a corn/bean header. Other headers are available for small grains, with each header designed for a certain crop.
