The massive SIMA show held every two years in Paris, France, offers many unusual products and sights. Among the exhibits this year was a look at the oldest and newest combines in the New Holland booth. The Swiss tractor company also displayed an antique tractor next to the newest model.

Case IH displayed a new combine with folding corn head, while JCB exhibited a 310-hp tractor that cruises at 45 mph.

Innovations were among the exhibits, including a Zamboni-like feeding robot to take over the chore of mixing and dispensing cattle feed. Kverneland displayed a planter with electric seed meters, which is new in the U.S.

Many companies offered special 0% financing on equipment for four to five years.
