Ground Driven Stalk Chopper
Recommended operating speed for the revolutionary Rolling Stalk Chopper announced by BJM Mfg. is 12 mph. Completely ground-driven, it requires no pto power and has none of the usual shafts, gearboxes or drive assemblies.
"In some loose soils, the machine provides enough pulverizing action to eliminate one disking operation," explains Glen Truitt, Sales Manager.
Fast operating speed, a lot of weight (2600 lbs.) and ground-driven rotary cutter blades combine to pulverize the stalks and knock down row ridges in corn, soybeans or sorghum fields. Requires a 100 hp or larger tractor.
Currently available in a 4-row model, with a 6-row model slated for introduction soon. The 4-row model is 12 ft. wide overall and is designed for row spacings of 36 to 42 in. The 6-row model is for 28 to 32 in. row spacings. Both models have rotary cutting assemblies in front and directly behind. Each rotary on the 4-row model is equipped with five 28-in. wide blades. Extra weight can be added by attaching "weight pads" to the frame.
