Let’s take a look at this video. What do we see here?
Absolutely typical beginning of the working day of the driver, whose grain truck goes to the field to pick grain from the combine. Every morning, the driver is simply forced to blow the air filter, cleaning the dust that has accumulated during the last shift.
Such manipulations damage the filter, because it consists of “villi”, which actually retain dust, and during regular blowing with a powerful stream of air, they are gradually destroyed. The ability of the filter to retain dust significantly decreases and, in the end, you have to buy a new one, but it also faces a similar fate. In addition, the operation of any truck, which provides regular trips to the field, significantly reduces its service life. The car wears out and needs more and more repairs. This is especially undesirable in the “hot” season for farmers – the harvest.
So, we have only two options – less often “blow” the air filter, but then the truck will lose engine power, or “blow” every time before going out into the field, but in this case, the “villi” wear out quickly and dust will fall simply in the engine.
Honestly, both options are so-so, because neither of them spares the car and sooner or later it will simply stop working properly.
But we have another way – not to go into the field on grain trucks! Let the car wait for loading on the edge of the field, and unloading of grain from the combine is carried out in the hopper-reloading of the checked domestic Egritech brand
Why should you choose storage hoppers to work in the fields? Let’s understand – if the grain truck does not enter the field, then there should be equipment that will harvest from the combine. Agree, “drive” the combine through the field – it’s not just a waste of precious time, compacting the soil, but also losing money. A combine harvester is a technique designed for continuous harvesting that can and should be unloaded in motion without stopping to unload an internal hopper. Frequent stops lead to premature wear of combine parts and are generally undesirable during operation of this type of equipment.
So we have the only right way out – to buy a reloading hopper. What does he give us?
- About 30% time savings when harvesting grain
- Continuous operation of the combine
- Prompt removal of crops to grain trucks waiting at the edge of the field
- Preservation of grain trucks from operation in extreme conditions
