Functional principle.

Once the sunflowers are collected by the shuttles, the adjustable guide plate ensures that the flower heads are pushed forwards. At the same time, the snapping roller below the knife bar pushes the stalks downwards. In this way, the guide plate and snapping roller prevent the stalks from being cut too soon. The cut is not performed until the sunflower heads are captured by the reel. As a result, only the flower heads reach the intake auger which finally delivers them to the feeder housing.

This unique functional principle makes for:

  • Lower fuel consumption
  • Increased threshing and cleaning performance
  • Low wear of all components
