BIGDRUM (Row Independent Maize Chopper (1,25 M.))
The Row Independent Maize Chopper has a working width of 1,25m. and with its cutter and feeder drum it can chop two rows of maize at one pass. One of the most important specification of the machine is its foldable chassis. The chassis can be folded so that the machine stays behind of the tractor. By driving backwards the machine can open a way in the middle of the field in order to decrease the number of turns on the field and decrease the fuel consumption of tractor.
The cutter and feeder drum carries the maize to the feeding unit. Row independent maize chopper’s feeding system is designed to feed the flywheel at right angles for the best quality silage. The flywheel is equipped with 10 special hardened knives revolving at nearly 1400 rpm. There are two feeder drums and two pressure rollers that control the feeding of the maize to the flywheel. One of the pressure rollers is spring loaded and toothed, while the other one is not. The pressure rollers are vertically mounted right behind the feeder drums so that stems and cobs are always chopped at right angle. This is the secret of the machine’s low power requirement and short length of chop.
For the protection of the feeding system an easily accessible shear bolt is mounted on the machine. It protects the feeding system against the intake of earth and stones in bad conditions.
While in operation, height adjustable wheel maintain an even working height thus preventing the intake of earth and stones in bad conditions.
The chute system of the machine is easily controlled hydraulically by the tractor. The chute has enough length and height to reach the trailer in front while driving backwards. Also it has an optional extension accessory for loading trucks and high trailers.
Knife grinding is easily carried out with the built-in sharpening device.
The height of the machine can be reduced by folding down the upper part of the chute.
