Producers who have an unplanned need for a harvest machine should evaluate carefully the solutions available to them. Many times, producers will make a quick decision to get harvest back rolling. The decision may be the right one, but sometimes it can have financial consequences.
The most common solutions to getting back into harvest when a combine goes down and can’t be fixed in a timely way are:
Employ a custom harvester to assist getting the crop out.
Lease a combine to finish out the harvest.
Buy a combine for this year and future years.
Let’s look at each one of these possible solutions.
