BCS reaper-binder is a true harvester for corn, rice, sesame, lavender, officinal herbs, common reeds and any other crop requiring mowing and tying in heaps or bundles.
This reaper-binder has a 4 forward speed and 1 reverse speed gearbox; it is operated by a single-cylinder diesel engine from Lombardini, type 3LD450, 10 HP.
The differential with lock and independent control brakes on the two wheels permit the best control of the machine on any type of ground.
There are two versions of reaper-binder available:
Standard reaper-binder for those products whose height does not exceed 70/80 cm from ground.
Special reaper-binder with raised chassis so that all the crops whose ground clearance is higher than 80 cm can easily flow under the axle.
The cutting height is 140 cm and the cutter bar is available with standard fingers (finger clearance: 76 cm), low cut fingers (finger clearance: 38 mm) or mulching fingers to prevent clogging, in particular for common reeds.
The forks over the cutter bar move constantly and continuously, to convey cut crop towards the tying attachment.
The binder is a patent by BCS and is true technical exploit: tying of cut product and wire cutting can be adjusted once the heap is ready. The diameter of the latter can be adjusted in three positions using a suitable spring.
