The article deals with the decision of Martin Bridges, manager of the Moray Estates Development Co., to replace their Mega 208 and Lexion 450 combines with the Lexion 600TT. According to Bridges, to cover harvest in their limited timescale with just one machine, they needed something like a Lexion 600. However Claas, having looked at his cropping and timescale, suggested a five-year contract hire with Maxicare at a cost of £4/ha.
