There is a trend toward growing row crops in narrower row spacings that affects the design of harvesting equipment; in particular combines used for harvesting corn. As the rows become narrower the headers are made larger to harvest a greater number of rows with each pass through the field. Larger headers can influence the balance, hydraulic system, wheel tread, tire size, and power requirements of the machine.
