Sugar Cane Mill
My new farm-sized cane mill for crushing sorghum or sugar cane has a capacity of 1 ton of cane per hour. The mill consists of three horizontal solid steel rolls positioned in a triangular fashion. Each roll is 5 in. in dia.and 8 1/2 in. wide. The rolls are V-grooved with 6 grooves per inch. Mill speed can be adjusted from 5 to 16 rpm's, depending on the hardness and size of the cane. All parts can be easily replaced, and maintenance is kept to a minimum. As far as I know, there's no other machine like it on the farm for on-farm, or community, cane crushing. (A.P. Gaubert, P.O.
