The machine consists of a 76 mm pitch reciprocating cutter bar assembly, seven crop row dividers, two vertical conveyor belts fitted with lugs, pressures springs, pulleys and gearbox for the power transmission system. The crop row dividers are fitted in front of the cutter bar assembly and the star wheels are mounted over the crop row dividers. The machine is mounted in front of the tractor and the power to the machine is given from tractor PTO with the help of intermediate shaft running beneath the chassis of the tractor and a coupling shaft. Height of the machine above ground is controlled by tractor hydraulic with the help of pulleys and steel ropes. After the crop is cut by the cutter bar, it is held in a vertical position and delivered to one side of the machine by lugged belt conveyors and fall on the ground in the form of a windrow perpendicular to the direction of movement of machine.

It consists of a frame, cutter bar, handles fitted with clutch and brakes, seat for the driver, two drive wheels, one wheel below the seat for steering, crop gathering unit and twine. The cutting unit of this type of reapers may be disc type or cutter bar type. After cutting, the crop is conveyed vertically to the binding mechanism where it is tied by the twine and released to the ground in the form of bundles. Self-propelled walking type models are available but these are not popular due to high cost of twine. Reaper binders are suitable for rice and wheat.

Various designs of combine harvester having 2 to 6 m long cutter bar are commercially available. The function of a combine harvester is to cut, thresh, winnow and clean grain/seed. It consists of header unit, threshing unit, separation unit, cleaning unit and grain collection unit. The function of the header is to cut and gather the crop and deliver it to the threshing cylinder. The reel pushes the straw back on to the platform while the cutter bar cuts it. The crops are threshed between cylinder and concave due to impact and rubbing action. The threshed material is shaken and tossed back by the straw rack so that the grain moves and falls through the openings in the rack onto the cleaning shoe while the straw is discharged at the rear. The cleaning mechanism consists of two sieves and a fan. The grain is conveyed with a conveyor and collected in a grain tank.

stuble shaver8.6 SHRUB MASTER








It consists of cutting blades (swinging flails) fixed to the rotating bar, gear box for transmission of power at right angle, universal joints with telescopic shaft to connect the tractor PTO and gearbox, adjustable side skids for controlling cutting height of shrubs or grass, safety guard and hitching frame. It is a operated by tractor PTO. The bar having cutting blades fixed at the ends is mounted on the gearbox shaft. Thus, the vertical shaft of the gearbox provides rotary motion to the bar. The cutting blades mounted on the bar swing open to the cutting position due to centrifugal force as the bar rotates in the horizontal plane. The cutting takes place purely through impact and flails need not be sharp-edged. The blades are made of medium carbon steel or alloy steel and hardened.
