Abstract : In East Asia, approximately one million small-sized rice combines have been used on paddy fields. The objective of this study is to carry out fundamental investigations on the mobility of small combines associated with changes in the position of the center of gravity. The relationship between the position of the center of gravity and the performance of the combine in straight and circular drive was analysed. (Author)
