What is the difference between a Gleaner Combine and a Gleaner Corn Head?
A Gleaner Combine is a machine that is used to harvest and thresh grains, such as wheat and oats, while a Gleaner Corn Head is specifically designed for harvesting corn. The Corn Head is attached to the front of the Combine and is equipped with rows of steel or plastic snouts that strip the corn kernels from the cob.
How is a Gleaner Combine maintained?
Proper maintenance is important to ensure that a Gleaner Combine is running efficiently and effectively. This includes regularly checking and replacing worn or damaged parts, such as belts, bearings, and blades. The Combine should also be cleaned after each use to remove any residue or debris that may have accumulated during the harvesting process.
Can a Gleaner Combine be used in wet conditions?
It is not recommended to use a Gleaner Combine in wet conditions, as the wet crop can clog the threshing drum and cause damage to the machine. Additionally, wet crops are more difficult to thresh and may result in lower-quality grain. It is generally best to wait until the crops have dried to a moisture content of around 15% before harvesting them with a Combine.
