Forage / Silage Harvester

A forage / silage harvester is a piece of farm machinery that is used to harvest forage crops such as grass to process them into silage. Forage harvesters may be powered, which are known as self-propelled forage harvesters, or they may be towed from the tractor and be PTO-driven. Forage harvesters are sometimes also known as foragers, choppers or silage harvesters.

Whether they are self-propelled or mounted, the basic configuration is the same. They have a flywheel or drum that is fitted with a number of cutting knives. The chopped crop is then blown from the forage harvester in a chute into a wagon or trailer that can be attached or driven alongside the unit. Some of the larger examples of forage harvesters will also use paddle accelerators, which are used to increase cutting speeds and unloading performance.

When the wagon is full, it can simply be detached and driven back to the store or silo for unloading and processing. At the same time, a second wagon can be attached to allow the forage harvester to continue with its work uninterrupted. Different forage crops have different characteristics that require different cutting techniques, and the forage harvester can be fitted with different cutting heads that can be attached and removed easily. Grass silage, for example, is often mown prior to being harvested. The forage harvester is then fitted with a collection head, or windrow pick-up, to harvest the grass once it has had the opportunity to wilt.
