Working principle of silage chopper

When the forage harvester for sale is working, the blade will rotate at high speed. The straw at the feeding port will be sucked into the casing. At the same time, the stalk is cut by the blade.

The stalk will then be sheared multiple times due to the folded line-shaped inner wall of the casing. Then, the crushed straw will be transported out by the fan. If you are equipped with a collection hopper, it can be directly transported into it.
