High capital costs (relative to labor) retard mechanization and lead to selective emphasis on power-intensive operations. Machinery design adjusts to high capital costs by lack of convenience features, simplicity, and reduced durability. Energy is only one of the costs of using machines. Capital and maintenance costs are often larger.
Mechanical threshing based on human power, but especially on horses, became widespread in the United States and Britain as early as 1830. By 1850 virtually all grain in the United States was threshed by large mechanical threshers, which went from farm to farm during the winter months. Rental markets were extensive.
