Custom Modifications for Tractor PTO Silage Harvester

The tractor PTO is a specialized agricultural machine used for harvesting corn and preparing it as silage. It is essential for farmers looking to efficiently process corn plants for fodder production. In this article, we will explore the advantages, applications, key components, working principle, installation and maintenance, and why you should choose AGKNX's silage harvester.

Advantages of Tractor PTO Silage Harvester

  • Efficient Corn Harvesting: The PTO silage harvester can efficiently cut and process corn plants, saving time and labor for farmers.
  • High-Quality Silage Production: The harvester ensures that corn plants are chopped into small, uniform pieces, resulting in high-quality silage.
  • Improved Digestibility: The kernel processor component of the harvester crushes corn kernels, improving silage fermentation and digestibility.
  • Easy Operation: The harvester is easy to operate and can be attached to a tractor for seamless harvesting.
  • Adjustable Cutting Size: The cutterhead of the harvester allows for the adjustment of cut sizes to meet specific silage requirements.
  • Consistent Feed Rate: The feed rolls ensure a consistent feed rate into the cutterhead, resulting in uniform chopping of corn plants.

Applications of Tractor PTO Silage Harvester

  • Corn Silage Production: The harvester is primarily used for harvesting corn and preparing it as silage for livestock feed.
  • Haylage Production: The harvester can also be used for cutting and processing other forage crops, such as grass and alfalfa, for haylage production.
  • Biogas Feedstock: The chopped silage can be used as a feedstock for biogas production, providing a renewable energy source.
  • Animal Feed: The high-quality silage produced by the harvester is a nutritious feed option for dairy cows, beef cattle, and other livestock.
  • Organic Fertilizer: The leftover plant material after silage production can be used as organic fertilizer for crop fields.
  • Food Preservation: Silage can be stored for extended periods, providing a reliable food source for livestock during lean seasons.

Silage Harvester Applications

Key Components of Tractor PTO Silage Harvester

  • Power Take-Off (PTO) Shaft: The driving force of the harvester, connecting it to the tractor.
  • Cutterhead: Responsible for chopping the corn plants into small pieces.
  • Gathering Chains or Pick-Up Reel: Gather the corn plants from the field and feed them into the cutterhead.
  • Feed Rolls: Pull the corn plants into the cutterhead for chopping at a consistent rate.
  • Kernel Processor or Cracker: Crushes corn kernels to improve silage fermentation and digestibility.
  • Blower or Fan: Propels the processed silage into a storage container or silage wagon.

Silage Harvester Key Components

Working Principle of Tractor PTO Silage Harvester

  • Attachment to Tractor: The harvester is attached to the tractor using the three-point hitch or another suitable mechanism.
  • Cutting Mechanism: Cuts the corn stalks close to the ground and removes the upper part of the plant containing the cobs.
  • Gathering and Chopping: The harvested corn plants are gathered and fed into the harvester for chopping.
  • Blower or Conveyor: Moves the chopped silage into a storage container for fermentation.
  • Packing: Compacts the chopped silage tightly in the storage container for proper fermentation.
