New Harvester* Complete Extensive Field Trials Several years of testing has answered some questions Fayette County farmers have asked about simplified forage harvesters. Extension Director M. C. Wangsness of Fayette says the machines have evolved from stalk shredders. Farmer interest has centered mainly on the relatively low cost and the simple design of these new forage harvesters. A. M. Cowan, an agricultural engineer at Iowa State College, reports models of two basic types of the simplified harvesters were field tested over a 2-year period at the college. One type is often called the "utility" cuttei" or harvester. In this type, the cutting knives rotate parallel to the ground around a vertical axle. The other, usually called the flail-tyipe forage harvester, has its knives rotating around a horizontal axle. 'Chopped material from the utility harvester is thfrown directly into a wagon by action of the knives. Some flail-type harvesters use this direct-throw system. Other models convey the material to a blower which throws the chopped material into the wagon. What kind of a product is produced? There's more variation in the length of cut than you get THE EMBLEM OF DEPENDABILITY rfU BRAND A A. M. A. I I I «l 1415.00 4970.00 469.00 70.00 23.00 3.00 6000.00 31.00 4550.00 17,531.00 in conventional harvesters. 7tri& there 's relatively more laceration, bruising or shredding of the chopped material. However, this difference in cut does not lower quality of the silage, Cowan explains. How about power requirement? For the direct-throw machines, where action of the knives propels the material into the wagon, the tests showed a 2 to 3 plow tractor is needed to handle the machine comfortably. A 3 to 4 plow tractor worked best on models where a separate blower conveyed the chopped material. What aTe other possible uses of the machines? Direct cutting of 1 alfalfa or other forage for silage or green feed is the major use being made of the new simplified harvesters. But they were also found satisfactory for other farm uses. These uses include chapping and picking up dry cornstalks for bedding or for low qaulity roughage, and clipping light brush from a pasture. Also, the flail-type harvester can be modified to make it a low-cost corn silage harvester, says Cowan. He adds that several operating precautions should be kept in mind. Frist, the machines have to be in balance. Loss of one knife, for example, sets up severe vibrations. Missing palrts must be replaced immediately. Also, the simplified harvesters should not be operated too close to the ground, particularly where fields are rough- or- full of 4oph«r mounds. Soil picked up and mixed into the grass may result in poor quality silage, Cowan explains.
