Our self-propelled maize harvester equipment is designed more compactly to accommodate the needs of harvesting corn in a relatively limited space. The harvesting efficiency is substantially increased by the two spiral rollers in its cutting head, which can adjust to different line spacings and do not entangle or block.
A machine called a “corn harvester” is used to harvest corn and prepare it for storage. The corn stalk was cut off at the ground by the earliest corn harvesting tools, such as the horse-drawn sled cutter. Hand labor was used for harvesting, husking, and shelling after the stalks were bound into sʜᴏᴄᴋs for drying. Around 1850, the mechanical binder was created. A crude mechanical picker was created about the same period, but it took nearly 30 years for a usable one to materialize.
Only the grain and cobs are gathered as a result of the mechanical picker snapping the ears off the stalk. Standing stalks are propelled between counter-rotating rollers by shields or snouts, which sharply tug the stalks through and snap the ears free. The husks are torn off by the husking mechanism, which consists of ᴄʟᴏsᴇly spaced, counter-rotating rollers. To create a two-row harvester, pickers can be mounted directly on the tractor or towed behind it by a power take-off unit. In the 1950s, mechanized picker attachments for field shelling were created. Corn-harvesting attachments for the combine were widely used in the late 20th century.
