Commercial Hemp

Forage Harvester + Single Knife Drum + Hemper® header

Harvest only the fiber. Harvesting commercial hemp for fiber production you need a special desgined Hemp-Cut drum. This is a single knife drum, adjustable speed to cut the crop in different length between 1 & 2 foot. At the moment these drums are only engineered for the Claas 492 self-propelled forage harvesters. When the hemp is straight and green, and low windspeed during harvesting you can cover 4 to 5 acres per hour.
