Ottawa Single-Row Harvester

Developed to harvest single rows of standing or lodged cereal plots for research purposes, this harvester is a compact, two-wheeled machine designed specifically for plot harvesting, with proper balance and convenient controls. Lodged crops are picked up by a pair of oblique-head finger bar assemblies mounted at 30 degrees at the front of the machine. As the straw is straightened by the dividers, it is gripped by elevating belts, cut 6 inches above the ground, and elevated to i hopper large enough to hold the yield of two 18-foot rows of cereal grain.

Winnipeg Plot Harvester

The Winnipeg research plot harvester is mounted on a standard ? h.p. Gravely garden tractor. Modifications were made to the cutting bar to limit the cutting width to two rows seeded a maximum of 12 inches apart. Small wheels were added under the front end to raise the cutting bar to the desired height. The reel, driven from the front wheels, is adjustable horizontally and vertically. As the plot is harvested, the material is gathered in a pan and can be collected and tied by the operator. A small opening was left at the rear of the pan to facilitate cleaning between varieties. A bar was placed across the front opening of the tray, a few inches from the bottom to ensure that the reel will force cut material back into the pan and away from the cutter bar. With this machine, it is possible to harvest 1,000 rod rows daily without the back-breaking labor inherent in the old sickle method. Three men are required to operate this machine efficiently.

BCS Binder

The BCS binder is a mass-produced farm machine from Italy which is mounted on the front of a European-style walking tractor equipped with a riding sulky. The tractor has a 9 h.p. engine, disc clutch, and a three-speed gearbox, The binder has a 54-inch wide cut and ejects the tied bundles to the rear. The crop remains in an upright position throughout the cutting and tying process. There is a provision for adjusting the size of the bundle, but not for tying height. Because the wheel tread is inside of the cutting width and the bundles are deposited on the stubble remaining where it was cut, adjacent plots are not disturbed. Optional equipment available from the factory includes a differential axle rather than the standard solid axle with wheel release, high-clearance axle, and electric starting. A mower attachment is included with the unit.

Povnter Stripper Harvester

The Pay liter pneumatic stripper harvester uses a comb to guide standing crops into a cylinder where heads are removed and threshed by the combination of impact from the cylinder and stripping through the comb. The chaff is removed by an air blast created by the cylinder. The straw is not cut. The unit is self-propelled and has a 24-inch swath extendable to 36 inches by additional crop fingers. The height of the comb is adjusted by a hand crank during operation.

The Poynter box stripper is similar to the pneumatic stripper except that all the stripped material is collected in an 8-cubic-foot box. This type of stripper is used in conjunction with a plot thresher to further thresh the collected material. The box stripper is normally hand-propelled, but it is also available as a ¡lower-propelled unit.
