Roadside Forage Harvestor
European farmers don't let any land go to waste so there's a big demand for this new roadside forage harvester that uses a big vacuum pickup to suck mown grass off hillsides and out of ditches where it would be difficult to go with a tractor and conventional forage harvester.
The unique harvester consists of a 41/2-ft. flail-type mower mounted on a hydraulic-controlled telescoping arm that can reach out 15 to 20 ft. from the side of the tractor, depending on model. To harvest the grass cut by the mower, a vacuum blower mounts at the rear of the tractor and a big 20-in. dia. flexible tube is mounted along the length of the mower arm. It sucks forage up from directly behind the mower and blows it to a "trailing wagon.
