An early reaper pulled by a team of horses.

"The most important operation during the harvest season was the cutting and later combining of the crop. It was essential to time it just right and to use all the necessary resources to get the crop in the bin. During the first 60 years of the settlement experience, technology changed from horse drawn reapers to combines, but the goal of getting the grain into the bin remained the same."
