In fact, the weight of combine harvesters has increased almost tenfold in the last sixty years, from around 4 to 36 tons, as Thomas Keller from Agroscope and the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences in Uppsala notes with his colleague Dani Or from ETH Zurich.

But contrary to what might have been assumed, this had hardly any effect on the load on the soil surface – it remained largely the same. This is due to the tires being wider at the same time, which distribute the weight of the machine evenly.
