The state-of-the-art machine is taking pride of place at the Ripon Farm Services stand at the showground.

Richard Simpson, commercial director of Ripon Farm Services, said: “We are immensely proud to be showcasing the splendid John Deere X9 combine harvester at the Great Yorkshire Show this year. It is an absolutely amazing machine, stunning to look at and wonderful to drive, as well as being incredibly efficient.

“The X9 is the largest combine harvester ever to grace the Great Yorkshire Show.

“Because of this, we are expecting huge interest in the X9, not just from the farming community, but also from the general public. It should prove to be one of the Show’s star attractions.

“The X9 also has a rather attractive feature – a massage chair. As every farmer knows, harvesting takes its toll on the body, especially on the back, and this sophisticated massage chair is specifically designed to ease tension and pain.

“The massage chair is an integral part of the combine’s spacious, state-of-the-art cab, which is the very best in the industry. With a massive fridge and a flexible seat which enables the driver to monitor the header without stretching, it has been described as the best office in the country.”
