“We’re a unique combine company so that’s why we made a unique toy,” chuckled Shawn Boerboom.
Unique — now maybe that’s an understatement.
Ever see a “custom designed combine before?”

As regional manager for “Machinery Link,” of Kansas City, Boerboom gets the honor of taking the high-priced toy to places like “Farmfest” near Redwood Falls, and even the Belgian-American Days parade in Ghent.
