Attachment Salvages Downed Corn or Lodged Row Crops
"I've field tested the units on several hundred acres and have picked as much as 95 bu. per acre of milo that was flattened right to the ground," explains William Mohr, Laurel, Neb., who has developed special attachments for salvaging lodged or downed row crops.
Smaller units, designed for salvaging beans, float separately and can be adjusted from 20 to 40 in. row width. Larger units for salvaging milo, sunflowers, corn and other row crops can be adjusted so height of cut can be from 13 to 30 in.
Row width can be adjusted from 30 in. to 40 in.
All units are hydrualically driven with the oil coming in through the lower point of the hydraulic motor, which is located within the tube. This leaves the upper end wide open
with no possible clogging, explains Mohr.
The device is patented but is not being manufactured at present. "I am looking for a manufacturer interested in getting them on the market. I feel the idea will go a long way in helping alleviate the energy situation," Mohr told FARM SHOW.
