Header loss for Shelbourne Reynolds stripper-header harvesting wheat



Header loss for Shelbourne Reynolds stripper-header harvesting wheat



Applied engineering in agriculture 12(2): 159-162



Field tests were conducted to evaluate header grain loss for a combine equipped with a 3.7 m (12 ft) wide Shelbourne Reynolds stripper-header harvesting wheat. Eight tests were conducted over two years in the Columbia Plateau and Northern Great Plains. Hard red spring and winter wheat were harvested near Sidney, Montana, and soft white wheat was harvested near Pendleton and Moro, Oregon. Combine speed, stepper rotor speed, and stripper hood position were evaluated at these locations where grain yield ranged from 2000 to 6200 kg/ha (30 to 92 bu/acre). Losses ranged from 50 to over 500 kg/ha (0.74 to over 7.4 bu/acre). Header loss decreased with increased combine speed and decreased hood clearance, but stripper rotor speed had little influence on header loss. A stripper-header combine traveling over 7 km/h (4.3 mile/h) had comparable header loss to combines with cutter-bar headers traveling at 1.3 to 4.4 km/h (0.8 to 2.7 mile/h).
