CONSPEED / CONSPEED LINEAR.

Front attachments

The picking characteristics of the CONSPEED and CONSPEED LINEAR maize pickers have a major influence on the throughput of the combine during maize harvesting.

The highlights at a glance:

  • CONSPEED maize picker as a 12, 8 and 6-row unit
  • CONSPEED maize picker as an 8, 6, 5 and 4-row unit
  • Row widths of 80, 75 and 70 cm
  • Linear and conical snapping rollers
  • Rigid or folding version
  • Easy hydraulic snapping plate adjustment using multifunction control lever
  • AUTO PILOT for automatic guidance of machine along the rows of maize
  • 3.0 m transport width with folding CONSPEED / CONSPEED LINEAR
  • Use

    The CONSPEED and CONSPEED LINEAR model series are the right maize pickers for harvesting grain maize or corn cob mix. Whether working in high-yield crops with a large number of cobs per plant or very dry maize stems, the CONSPEED and CONSPEED LINEAR maize pickers ensure a clean, effective picking process, from the LEXION to the AVERO.

    What's more, the folding maize pickers do away with the need for removal and refitting when moving from one field to the next or during road transport.

Functional principle.

The hoods ensure that the maize stems are fed evenly into the snapping rollers. The stems are captured by the rollers and pulled downwards. At the same time, snapping plates separate the maize cobs cleanly from the stalks.

The chopper blades chop up the stalks which have been pulled down. The intake auger then transports the maize cobs to the feeder housing.

The snapping rollers are the key components of the CONSPEED and CONSPEED LINEAR maize pickers:

  • CONSPEED: conical snapping rollers
  • CONSPEED LINEAR: linear snapping rollers

1 Direction of travel 2 Optimal picking speed 3 Fast stem transportation

The throughput speed of the maize cobs through the snapping rollers is the factor which defines the difference between CONSPEED and CONSPEED LINEAR at this point.

CONSPEED: the downward throughput speed of the maize cobs is increased significantly by the conical shape of the snapping rollers.

CONSPEED LINEAR: the downward throughput speed of the maize cobs remains constant as a result of the linear shape of the snapping rollers.

Horizontal choppers running at a constant speed then chop up the maize cobs below the maize picker.

Horizontal chopper.

Each picking unit is equipped with a horizontal chopper integrated in the transmission unit.

  • Chopper blades sharpened on three sides ensure precise chopping, fast rotting of the stem constituents and optimal field hygiene
  • Tungsten-carbide coating provides optimal protection against wear
  • The knives can be changed quickly and easily
  • Shear bar kit available for chopper knives
  • Chopper can be shut down separately if required (CONSPEED)

Hoods.

  • Robust plastic hoods ensure that the cobs are handled gently
  • Can be raised and adjusted for maintenance
  • The flat picking angle makes for low cob losses ("cob jump-off")
  • Rubber cob retainers on the hoods prevent the cobs from sliding back

CONSPEED LINEAR sunflower kit.

The CONSPEED LINEAR can also be converted for sunflower harvesting in next to no time. The conversion involves fitting special knives above the snapping roller in order to cut off the sunflowers. This ensures that the combine is not contaminated with stalk fragments unnecessarily. Side hood extensions are also fitted to the CONSPEED LINEAR along with a special rear wall panel in order to avoid losses. The intake chains are turned round so that the sunflower heads can reach the feed rake unharmed.

  • Fast, easy conversion of the front attachment for use in sunflower harvesting
  • Wider range of applications and increase in the cost-efficiency of the combine and the front attachments
