Whether applied to crop handling or tillage, modern harvesting machines are built around automation, making agricultural harvesting work as efficient as possible. By using these highly varied and technical machines, farmers can produce and process more material in less time and thereby make more profits in the process.
The modern combine is a versatile machine that – yes – combines three operations essential for harvesting grain crops: reaping, threshing and winnowing. With the initial reaping of cereals being done by the sharp pincers of a harvester’s header, a good rule of thumb when buying a harvester is that the wider the header, the more efficient the harvesting process. On Tradus, popular brands include Claas, John Deere, New Holland and Massey Ferguson.
When it comes to harvesters, the variety is staggering. Name a crop and you can find a specialized machine, all built for speed – whether pullers for carrots, onions and beets, full plant harvesters for hemp, or logging machines. Key brands often found on Tradus include Valmet, Ponsse, John Deere and Loglift.
Whether attached to a tractor or as an independent unit, forage harvesters – also known as silage harvesters, foragers or choppers – cut and gather grass, corn or hay. With the shearing complete, the silage is then chopped further and blown into an accompanying hauling vehicle. The harvest is then taken to a storage silo, where it can ferment to become animal feed. At Tradus, you can shop for used forage harvesters from brands such as Claas, John Deere and Krone.
