Increase Combine Header Feeding Drum Capacity – Thunderstruck Ag

Harvest

One of the biggest issues facing farmers at harvest is the limited capacity that they encounter with their draper header feed drum. As OEM header drums force material towards the center of the drum and only feed through at the center of the drum, this limits the capacity to feed crops into the combine,and ultimately reduces the capacity of the header. In addition farmers run the risk of plugging their machine, as well as increasing rotor loss as often the material will clump when feeding with the OEM drums.

How to Solve Rotor Loss, Sieve Loss, Cracked Grain, Unthreshed Material, Increase Ground Speed and cut your fuel costs while combining

Harvest

Typically when you’re harvesting using a rotor combine you’d have to change concaves from crop to crop to get threshing capabilities for each crop while battling changing crop and weather conditions, which often lead to increased grain loss and dockage of your sample due to poor threshing abilities.

The Air Missile

Harvest

Harvest is a busy time and the job doesn’t end when you get the grain off the field. Not only 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.

Combine Concaves

Harvest

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

Harvest

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.

Concave Disruptors

Harvest

Generally, when a combine is having rotor loss it’s due to an overloaded sieve. 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 separating grate section of your combine, you can cut in the flow of material as they go through the harvester combine. This helps the combine to move the chaff,

iPaddock Twister

Harvest

The iPaddock Twister™ chain tensioner is the latest product from iPaddock (a management system farm based in the south east of Western Australia founded in 1992).
