The Air Missile
Harvest is a busy time and the job doesn’t end when you get the grain off the field. Not only to do you need to get it into the bin, but you also need to dry it. Some of the methods to get this done have been to use uninterrupted feed dryers, incorporating batch dryers and having in-bin aeration. For the latter you would apply warm dry air to the bottom of the bin to dry the grain.
There are obviously two things we need to have to dry grain; one is heat, the other one is airflow; The ThunderDryer provides you with both. The ThunderDryer provides you with ample time to set up the system and dry your grain in your bin. This allows you to take your grain off the field in better conditions and operate your harvest on your own terms.
Grain drying is a fundamental part of the harvest process,
You would think that buying any type of concave for your combine would help you in threshing or filtering any type of crop you have on your farm (corn, soybean, wheat, canola, etc), but it is much more elaborate than that. In this article we will explain what concaves are, and all the different types there are for all of the crops that we have in Canada and the United States.
Concave Cover Plates
To improve threshing during harvest, farmers and producers have created concave cover plates. These cover plates do or fulfill the same purpose as the filler plates on standard regular concaves. Cover plates are used for small grains. No cover plates are used for harvesting corn, but everything else would require cover plates.
Generally, when a combine is having rotor loss it’s due to an overloaded detachment section. That may happen when there is a lot of material trying to be separated at once causing grain to be pushed out the back of the combine with the chaff. By using a set of concave disruptors in the separation shred section of your combine, you can cut in the flow of leaves and chaff as they go through the harvester combine.
The iPaddock Typhoon
The iPaddock Typhoon™ was designed to maximize capacity and minimize downtime. This heavy-duty feed drum is fully welded and designed with strength and adaptability.
The iPaddock Typhoon™ roughly grabs crops and pulls it through in a continuous firm flow, allowing you to go faster and get the crop off fast.
The iPaddock Twister™ is the latest product from iPaddock (a management system farm based in the south east of Western Australia founded in 1992). It fixes the problem of the drive chain coming off the feed drum on the Macdon fronts. It has a slot that is cam shaped that makes precise adjustment of chain tension possible with just manual pressure, while preventing the tensioner from sliding loose in the way when it is tightened up again.
