Claas is best known on Britain's farms for its combine harvesters. They entered our market during the reconstruction period for Germany after the Second World War and rapidly gained a major share of combine sales. The company is also noted here for its forage harvesters, balers and, more recently, tractors. The family company has a history going back to 1913. Its great innovation was in creating the modern combine harvester in the 1920s. This large-format, generously illustrated book covers the development of the combine and other agricultural machinery. It also deals with the wider history of the company: its marketing, structure and its role as a successful family enterprise typical of German industry. Finally, there are useful appendices giving production details of Claas combines.
