Yes, the combine cab is climate controlled. We have heat and air conditioning! You would be surprised to know that the warmest time of day in a combine is in the evening when the sun shines in the windows. I also have a radio that has AM, FM and a weather band. I do not have the fancy model that has a CD player.
Speaking of making adjustments. I can make almost all of the adjustments needed from the comfort of my air ride seat. This is also a bit different than the old combine. It allows me to change things as I go through the field and the crop changes (gets greener or drier).
This is my oldest son's favorite thing to watch in the combine. This display reads the yield (usually bushels per acre), the number of acres harvested, etc. and it also runs my auto steer for the combine. My favorite feature of the new combine.
My youngest son loves to watch the grain fill the tank. You can watch it fill as you drive through the field through the window behind my driver seat. We should really clean it if we are going to take pictures and video through it. Sorry!
As I have advertised on my Facebook page, I do offer free combine rides for kids (old and young). I really like the passengers that bring me a snack or drink. If you are in the area and want a ride, be sure to find out where we are harvesting.
As I have said, this is a new combine for us. Check out the video our family put together celebrating the new addition. Many of the pictures were taken by our 6 year old son as he helped us this weekend.
