Waste Grain Elevator For CombinesNew "waste grain elevator" for combines collects waste grain, weed seeds, pieces of leaves, etc., from the sieves and conveys them to the rear of the combine, where it dumps them on top of the windrow. The resulting mixture of straw and grain can be baled or chopped for livestock feed.
It consists of an enclosed rectangular steel tube that houses a chain paddle elevator that bolts onto both sides of the combine. The elevator is hydraulically driven.
Feed value of the waste material collected is said to be 30 percent higher than the straw alone. Another advantage is that the field is kept free of weed seeds which lessens the need for herbicides the following year. If desired the collected waste material can be dropped into the straw spreaders and spread evenly over the field. Fits most combines.
