Silage Harvester Applications

Key Components of Tractor PTO Silage Harvester

A PTO Corn Silage Harvester consists of several key components that work together to efficiently harvest and process corn plants for silage production.

Key Components of Silage Harvester

Power Take-Off (PTO) Shaft

The is the driving force of the harvester, connecting it to the tractor.


The cutterhead is responsible for chopping the corn plants into small pieces suitable for silage production.

Gathering Chains or Pick-Up Reel

These components gather the corn plants from the field and feed them into the cutterhead for processing.

Feed Rolls

Feed rolls pull the corn plants into the cutterhead at a consistent rate for uniform chopping.

Kernel Processor or Cracker

This component crushes the kernels of the corn to improve silage fermentation and digestibility.

Blower or Fan

The blower propels the processed silage into a storage container or wagon for further use.

Working Principle of Tractor PTO Silage Harvester

The tractor PTO silage harvester operates through a series of steps and components working together to efficiently harvest and process corn for silage production.

Working Principle of Silage Harvester

Attachment to Tractor

The harvester is attached to the tractor and powered by the tractor's PTO.

Cutting Mechanism

The cutting mechanism cuts the corn stalks close to the ground, removing 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 into small pieces.

Blower or Conveyor

The chopped silage is blown or conveyed into a storage container for further use.


The chopped silage is tightly packed in the storage container for proper fermentation.

Installation and Maintenance of Tractor PTO Silage Harvester

Proper installation and maintenance of a tractor PTO silage harvester are essential for its optimal performance and longevity.

Installation and Maintenance of Silage Harvester

Secure Attachment

Attach the harvester to the tractor using the recommended attachment mechanism.

PTO Shaft Alignment

Align the PTO shaft of the harvester with the tractor's PTO output for proper engagement.

Hydraulic Connections

Connect the hydraulic lines to the tractor's hydraulic system for hydraulic components.

Regular Cleaning

Clean the harvester thoroughly after each use to remove debris and moisture.


Regularly inspect the harvester for signs of wear, damage, or loose connections.

PTO Shaft Maintenance

Grease and inspect the PTO shaft for proper alignment and secure attachment.
