As combine headers get wider and heavier, the need to have a beefy trailer to carry them on the road gets more important.

Lincolnshire manufacturer Bob Eyre has responded with a unit that has a pivoting headstock (to ease manoeuvring), an extending drawbar (to simplify hitching to the back of a combine), hydraulic brakes, off-centre wheels (so no need to manoeuvre the combine feeder housing over them) and a clamp with extendible arms.

Mr Eyre says he can make a trailer to suit any combine header. Cost is from £4000.
