The history of Fortschritt combine harvester

Fortschritt Landmaschinen was a company that dominated the agricultural landscape in the German Democratic Republic (GDR) during the 1960s and 1970s. One of its flagship products was the Fortschritt E 512 – a grain combine harvester that revolutionized the harvest season in the region. At the time of its debut, the Fortschritt combine was a symbol of modernity and efficiency. The origins of this model date back to the early 1960s when there was a lack of efficient grain combines in the GDR that could meet the demands of farmers. Existing stationary threshing machines were unable to provide adequate performance, and combine harvesters requiring the use of agricultural tractors were produced in small quantities and also did not meet expectations. Attempts to modify and adapt existing machines to market needs did not yield the expected results. It was at this moment that the first Fortschritt grain combine harvester was created, intended to change the reality of field work. The designers’ task was to create a machine that could achieve a throughput of 5 kilograms of wheat per second to meet fields with a yield of 4.5 tons per hectare.
