Combine harvester is a machine efficient in harvesting crops.Combines for sale at Alibaba.com
Combine tractors perform four harvesting operations in a combined manner into a single process. The processes are reaping, gathering threshing, and winnowing. In other words, farming combines cut the crop, gather it, and loosens the grain or the edible part from the straw, and separates the chaff and pests. The combined machines are a lot more efficient than using a reaper alone, then having to go through the grains to remove the chaffs. Combined harvesters are therefore labor efficient, and time-saving for field owners.
What type of crops can you harvest with a combine harvester?
A combine makes adequate grain harvesters, like rice harvester or a wheat combine. The machine only has to be equipped with a head that is specially designed to harvest the specific crop. With various heads corn combine is a popular machine and other crops such as tea, sunflower, canola, barley, rye, oats, and soybeans can be harvested as well.Combine harvesters have a forte in this task as they have internal holding tanks while working and prevents the loss of yield.
What sizes are there in combine harvesters?
strong>A combine size is called class and is determined by the Association of Equipment Manufacturers (AEM). The main measurements were in horsepower, but the class rankings are not a fixed standard but the AEM annually reviews them. Compared to what was defined earlier class five combines, today's rankings are by higher horsepower. It may be related to the growth in farm sizes and the call for timely harvesting. Combine classes range from class five to ten, and higher classes have large engine power. A small combine harvester or mini-combine harvester would be more suitable for hilly, steep farms, where large combines are hard to reach.
