New Hollands FR 600 forage harvester, priced at 500,000.

Why pay half a million dollars for a new harvester when you can buy the same model for just over $200?

One of the more expensive products up for grabs at the Central Districts Field Days is New Holland's FR 600 forage harvester, priced at $500,000. 

Just, three stalls over though, the same harvester cost just $225.

Admittedly, it's just a fraction of the size and lacks an engine, but that's because it's a model collectible.

Model Barn's Jeremy Welsh said all his models were miniature versions of 'real-life' machines, which is why they were popular.  

New Holland hay and harvest manager Rod Gardner said as productivity demands increased, so did the power required.

"In comparison to other harvesters, this one has features such as an IntelliView touch screen monitor, that can show the operator up to three viewing cameras. 

"It also has infrared sensors so the driver can see through the monitor that what's being harvested is going into the truck." 

Most of the company's on-site machines were priced between $300,000 and 400,000.

"We're targeting contractors, farmers, pretty much anyone that's got money," Gardener said.
