    The combine harvester is the most modern harvester of wheat. It’s called a combine because it “combines” the job of the header and thresher which were its predecessors. The combine is tied to the Midwest; it also had a great impact on the Northwest and specifically Washington State.

    Most of them do 'combined' jobs, like cutting, threshing, and baling.

    The name derives from its combining three separate harvesting operations—reaping, threshing, and winnowing—into a single process.

    Because it does several jobs. It cuts the crop, separates the grain from the hay, pumps the grain into an attending trailer and shapes and binds the hay into stacks.
