What is the main task of the combine harvester?

Combine harvester is a composite working machine that integrates the functions of harvesting, threshing, separating, cleaning and grain collecting. It plays an important role in reducing farmers' labor intensity, improving productivity, reducing agricultural production costs, striving for agricultural time and promoting high agricultural yields. Today, the combine harvester has become an important means and vehicle for farmers to increase their income. Combine harvesters can be divided into three types: traction type, self-propelled type and backpack type.


What are the varieties of combine harvesters?

1. Self-propelled full-feed combine harvester on wheels. This model is better suited for operations in North China, Northeast China, Northwest China, Central Plain and Dry Areas. It mainly harvests wheat and rice and is suitable for long-distance transport. It is the main model for off-site harvesting and supra-regional operation.

2. Self-propelled full-fledged combine harvester of the caterpillar type. This model is better suited for flood and dry land or rice field wet soil operations in central and southern China, and is suitable for harvesting wheat and rice plants. Off-site harvests and supra-regional operations can be carried out, but if the transport is carried out over long distances, vehicle transport is required.

3. Self-propelled semi-feeding combine harvester on caterpillars. This model is mainly suitable for rice harvesting and can also harvest wheat. It is the product with the highest complexity factor among small and medium-sized combine harvesters, and also the price is the highest. Compared to other models, the cleanliness of the grain after harvesting is higher, and it can adapt to the harvesting conditions of deep mud feet and strong storage, while ensuring the integrity of the stems after harvesting.

4. Hanging combine harvester. Attached combine harvesters use tractor power to perform combined harvesting operations, and there are two types of single power and dual power. This type of model is cheap and can be used for multiple purposes, but it is laborious to disassemble and assemble, and production and sales gradually decline.


How do I maintain combine harvesters?

A new machine or combine must be run in a test run after maintenance.

① Engine test run. According to the maintenance content, determine the start-up of cold and warm operation, check whether the oil pressure indicator, oil temperature indicator and water temperature indicator are normal, and whether oil is leaking, water is leaking or abnormal noise occurs.

②Combine walking test run. Left and right in order 1. Gang, 2. Gang, 3. This is the case. Reverse gear, check whether the steering and brake are sensitive and whether the clutch lock is reliable.

③The cutting, threshing, separating, unloading and other working mechanisms of the combine are put into trial operation to check the reliability and sensitivity of the monitoring instruments.
