Gleaner Update: Episode Three

Episode Three of the Gleaner Super Series videos is here! In this episode, you’ll see exactly how this new combine achieves its high level of performance. You’ll also see the comparison data from our benchmark tests against competitive combines.

With the official launch completed, several Super 7 and Super 6 units have spread out in fields across North America to show farmers just what they’re capable of. The black painted Stealth S7 will take a quick break from its current run to make a visit to farm shows before returning to the field to cut more beans and corn.
