«RAPEFIORE» RAPESEED HEADER EXTENSION WITH HYDRO-DRIVEN SIDE CUTTERS

The Rape Fiore rapeseed header extension with hydraulic drive active side cutterbar is used for harvesting rapeseed and mustard by direct combining with a standard grain reaper. The rapeseed extension is paired with direct-flow auger grain headers with a working width of 5 to 12 m from any manufacturer.


The use of a rapeseed header extension with hydraulically drive side cutterbar reduces harvesting losses by 30% compared to conventional grain harvesters. This is achieved by reducing the mechanical impact on the plant during cutting and providing a better cut.

Description


Construction and operation of the rapeseed header extension with hydraulically driven side cutterbars

The rapeseed attachment is a welded structure consisting of a horizontal frame covered with sheets and two sides with active dividers driven by an independent hydraulic motor. The header extension is the frame of the device, on which all components are mounted - the main cutting unit, active side dividers with hydraulic drive, the drive of the main cutting unit and mounting elements.

The device is mounted on the combine header and allows for both header and shuttle operation.

When operating the combine in a header, the design of the device allows disconnecting the left active divider to reduce its wear. This is achieved by switching off/on the hydraulic drive of each divider separately due to its independent design.

The technological process of the device is as follows.

The hydraulically driven sidewalls divide the crop and direct it inside the attachment to the main cutting unit. After cutting the crop, the reel of the cutterbar puts the crop on the table of the device and then pushes it under the auger of the cutterbar. The cut mass is fed by the auger into the inclined chamber of the combine harvester.

Design benefits of the rapeseed attachment with hydraulically driven side dividers

Hydraulic active side knives. Elimination of vibration of the rapeseed header extension due to the absence of mechanical connections of the planetary drive with the side dividers.

High-quality knife strip. The use of a high-quality knife strip made of spring steel together with lightweight stamped-welded fingers, together reduce the load and weight during the operation of the cutting unit.

Planetary scythe drive. This gearbox increases the cutting frequency of the horizontal and vertical knives by 200-300 double strokes per minute. The planetary gearbox is much lighter than the MKS knife drive, which reduces the weight of the attachment and centers the balance.

Easy maintenance and lower weight. Reduced mechanical gearing simplifies maintenance, improves reliability and reduces weight.

Double active divider knives. The side divider of the rapeseed header extension consists of two active knives. This ensures a high-quality cut of the plant due to the increased cutting frequency.

Independent activation of the active dividers. The side divider is activated and deactivated by simply turning the handle.
