2 types Corn cutter / corn harvester / cutting corn off the cob

corn harvesting machine

Type one

This corn cutter developed by our company bears new design, adopting domestic first-class mechanical drive and hydraulic drive technology, and it is easy to control and operate. It integrates the picking, conveying, peeling, packing and straw crushing as a whole, meeting the needs of users in different regions.

The corn harvested with straw returning should be cut as far as possible after the corn is ripened for 3 to 5 days. In this way, the kernel of corn is full and the water content of them is low that is good for peeling the corn husk. In addition, yellow straw with low water content can be effectively crushed, reducing labor time.

Common faults and related solution of corn cutter

(1) Straw blockage

Reason: The position of the picking board is not suitable (the gap is too close), and the transmission triangle belt is too loose.

Solution: Adjust the clearance of the picking plate to the appropriate size. Due to the different thickness of the straw, the tension of the transmission belt is adjusted between 20-50mm.

(2) The smashed straw is too long

Reason: The clearance of the movable knife is too long, and the blade of it is not sharp.

Solution: Adjust the clearance between the fixed knife and the movable knife ranging from 0.3-1.5mm.

(3) The peeling effect is not good

Reason: The peeling rubber roller is seriously worn, slipping from the driven rubber roller.

Solution: change the pressure of stripping roller by adjusting the bolts or replace the stripping roller.

(4) Common faults in the gearbox

Phenomenon: The gearbox has abnormal noise, oil leakage or overheating.

Reason: Gear or bearing is worn. Installation direction of oil seal is wrong or aging. Side gap is too close and there are little lubricant oil.

Solution: 1. Adjust the gear or bearing installation clearance.

  1. Replace damaged parts.
  2. Reinstall or replace the oil seal.
  3. Tighten the bolts and adjust the oil to the appropriate height.
