I know nothing more about the combine itself but here is a link to the article re: the 249 combines that participated in this record setting event.

I had to smile when I seen the front page picture in the Producer about that. Noticed a White 5542 was trailing the big new combines by quite a ways. Hard to believe they were one of the biggest combines available back in the 60's. Still one of the best combines made in my opinion.

That was quite the photo alright. The 5 and 5542s certainly were popular here in Sask. I see a 914 pull type IH in the same photo. Also a couple of 7721s like mine. Rather impressive how the guy put a 25 foot swath through the old 428. Must have been a good even swath.
