with government regulations the easy way.
regulated seed is a government requirement. The question is how
best to conform with this government requirement without disrupting
your harvest operations.
Spreader has the answer to this question. They have been retrofitting
single plot harvesters for the past four years and have a track
record of many successful "Grinder on Gleaner" conversions.
This design modifies an industrial hammer mill to be mounted
on and driven from the combine. A hydraulically driven auger with
a control valve delivers grain from the sump of the weigh bucket
to this grinder when the valve is in the "on" position.
The cracked corn that's discharged from this grinder is completely
devitalized. With the valve in the "off" position
for unregulated crops, grain is discharged from the weigh bucket
to the combine hopper as before.
of the plot harvesting combine is not affected by the grinder
installation whether it is in use or not. The power requirement
for the grinder when it is in use is minimal and the operator
will notice no difference in combine operation.
prototype of the devitalizing grinder has been completed for a
two-plot harvester and it is available for production as well.

for either single or two-plot harvesters.
