Different Types of Harvesters You Should Buy For Your Farm

Combine harvester types are divided into wheel and crawler types according to the walking mechanism. The wheel-type combine harvester is mainly used for dry land walking. The crawler type is mainly used for wetland paddy harvesting。

What’re the Types of Crop Combine Harvesters?

The types of harvesters are divided into grain harvesters and corn harvesters according to the crops harvested.

Combine harvesters types can be divided into three types according to structure: traction type, self-propelled type, and mounting type. Trailed combine harvester refers to a combine harvester pulled by a tractor.

This kind of combined harvester can be divided into two types: self-powered and non-powered. The structure of the trailed combine is relatively simple, but the unit is large and the maneuverability is high. Poor, can not open the way by themselves, unsuitable for small work.

A combine harvester refers to a combine harvester in which the power required for walking, harvesting, threshing, and cleaning is supplied by the machine’s own engine.

Compared with the trailed combine harvester, the self-propelled combine harvester is characterized by good maneuverability, self-opening, convenient transfer, and high production efficiency, but the cost is higher and the power utilization rate is low.

A knapsack combine harvester refers to a combine harvester in which the working part of the harvester is suspended on a tractor or a general-purpose chassis. It basically maintains the advantages of self-propelled type, overcomes the disadvantage of the low power utilization rate of self-propelled type, and has a low cost.

However, the overall design is limited by the structure of the tractor. The distance of the conveying mechanism is long, the cleaning mechanism is short, and the transmission is more complicated.

What’s the Different between Wheel Type and Crawler Type Combine Harvester?

The price of a wheel-type combine harvester is lower and easy to move, running fast on the road, which reduces transportation costs, while the crawler-type combine requires additional large trucks for transportation. However, the working ability of the crawler type is stronger than that of the wheel type in the condition of poor terrain and soft soil.

Tire-type harvester moves fast but easy to slip, and crawler-type moves slowly without slipping and with low pressure on the ground.

What’re the Differences Between a Full-Feed Combine Harvester and Half-Feed Combine Harvester?

According to the feeding method, combine harvesters can be divided into full feeding type and half feeding type.

Full-feed combine harvester refers to a combine harvester in which all the grains cut by the header enter the drum threshing. Most of the combine harvesters for harvesting grains use this feeding method, and the disadvantage is that the stem is incomplete and the power consumption is large.

The Half-Feed combine harvester refers to a combine harvester in which only the head of the crops cut by the header enters the threshing drum for threshing. This model maintains the integrity of the stalk and reduces the power consumption of threshing and cleaning.

At present, combine harvesters with this feeding method are mostly used in paddy harvesting. However, the conveying stalk transmission mechanism is complicated and the manufacturing cost is high.

Half feeding combine harvester

The types of harvesters are rich and diverse, in addition to the ones we listed above, according to the feeding capacity or cutting width, Combine harvester types can be divided into three types: large, medium, and small.

According to the name of crops be harvested, Combine harvester types can be divided into a wheat combine harvester, rice combine harvester, wheat combine harvester, corn combine harvester, rapeseed combine harvester, etc.
