In an attempt to radically change the industry approach to agricultural machinery, Australia-based start-up LINTTAS Electric Company aims to develop the worlds first electric combine harvester 

Using an innovative and new world-leading grain separation processes with the potential for patent, the new harvester will enable faster and more efficient grain harvesting, with lower energy consumption and lower costs for grain producers using electrification. By engaging with key government, potential partners and industry stakeholders, LINTTAS aims to understand how to maximise the future benefits and influence future policy development. 

The LINTTAS harvester is a radical new approach, with efficiency and energy savings of up to 30% and with design features that can be applied across the agricultural machinery sector. The new design uses electric drives, to not only achieve the highest performance but with a much reduced carbon footprint. Moreover, the new harvester will be suitable and adaptable for a range of crop types and conditions, based on off-the-shelf components, easily updated, and designed to be easily repairable. 

After developing the first fully electric combine harvester, LINTTAS plans to re-align the agricultural machinery sector by applying this technology to other agricultural machines. The new technology enables higher farm production and lower energy consumption, while also presenting the opportunity to revolutionise not only grain harvesting, but also farm machinery. In addition, it also offers job opportunities in a new manufacturing industry and a chance to lead the world in sustainability in agricultural equipment.
