The year was 1986, and two Kansas farmers we feed up with the high maintenance cost of conventional combines.They built and patented their own axial flow machine. Developed by Ralph Lagergren and Mark Underwood, back in 1986 they have worked on the project ever since – with the help of Dr. Stanley Clark, head of ag engineering at Kansas State University. To test the idea, the men first built a stationary model at KSU. After a couple years experimentation, they went to phase two, gutting an existing machine, a Case/IH 1480 and installing the revolutionary new “bi-rotor” system and tracks.

    This HAD TO have been in like 1976 not ’86 because we had a 1979 1440 IHC combine and I think they were introduced to the general public in 1977 or ’78. My dad and Grandpa bought that combine used in like ’80-’81 when our old 715 gave up the ghost.
