Although combines were increasingly common throughout the U.S., grain binders like the one shown in this file photo remained in use through World War II. This 1936 McCormick-Deering O-12 orchard tractor was paired with a 1932 McCormick-Deering binder in a demonstration put on by Apple Country Engine Club, Campobello, S.C., in 1988.
