Small Field Reaper Binder
The new BCS MLP 140 SDZ Reaper Binder is ideal for small fields of wheat and barley. The pto-powered, 3-pt. mounted machine requires only 18 hp. to harvest just under 2 acres per hour.
    “I have imported several of them,” says Eugene Canales, Ferrari Tractor CIE. “ My customers use them to harvest wheat at the dough stage, which is a little less than ripe.”
    Canales notes that many of those same customers run the bundles through a Cicoria plot thresher (Vol. 42, No. 6). “Most of them have from 2 to 10 acres. They’re willing to substitute some labor to avoid having to use a combine,” he says.
    The 140 SDZ has a working width of 55 in. It is about 6 1/2 ft. wide and a little over 10 ft. long. Overall height is 3 ft., 7 in. and weighs just under 750 lbs.
    The recommended maximum harvesting height for grains is 5 ft., 6 in. The company also makes the MLP 140 TC for harvesting higher crops such as sesame, sun hemps, reed, pearl millet and sorghum. It has a maximum harvesting height of almost 8 ft.
    The 140 SDZ is priced at $12,132. The price for the 140 TC is $12,431. Both prices are FOB Newark, N. J.
