  • Patent number: 11122744
    Abstract: A combine harvester including a cleaning shoe, having a tailings auger for collection of tailings, a tailings collection bin and apparatus for moving material from the tailings auger to the tailings collection bin.
    Type: Grant

  • Patent number: 11089728
    Abstract: A system and computer-implemented method for sensing an amount of free water in cut crop material and automatically adjusting an operating parameter of a mower conditioner to optimize the amount of free water. A sensor located at the exit of a conditioning mechanism measures an actual free water content value of the material as it exits the conditioning mechanism, a processor compares the actual value to maximum and minimum values, and if the actual value is outside this range, automatically adjusts an operating parameter, such as a gap between pairs of conditioning rollers, a pressure exerted by the rollers, or a speed of the mower conditioner, to optimize the actual value. Another sensor may be located at the entrance of the conditioning mechanism. The processor may take into account an operator-selectable value weighting the actual free water content versus a dry down time when adjusting the operating parameter.

  • Publication number: 20210185934
    Abstract: Methods and systems for sensing a throughput of cut organic material conveyed through agricultural equipment such as an agricultural baler or the like. The system may include, and the method may be performed at least in part using, agricultural equipment including a feed mechanism that conveys the cut organic material through the agricultural equipment. The feed mechanism includes a rotor, a floor near the rotor, and a sensor that measures data proportional to a force exerted on the floor. The system includes a processor that correlates data proportional to the force exerted on the floor to a rate at which the cut organic material is conveyed through the feed mechanism.

  • Publication number: 20210059113
    Abstract: A system (42) and computer-implemented method for sensing an amount of ash in cut crop material and automatically adjusting an operating parameter of a mower conditioner to optimize the amount of ash. A sensor (50) measures an measured ash content value of the crop material after it is cut, a processor (48) compares the actual value to a threshold value, and if the actual value exceeds the threshold value, automatically adjusts an operating parameter, such as a height, angle, or speed at which the crop material is cut, a float pressure of the header (12), or a ground speed of the machine (10). Other sensors (64) may measure a roughness of the cut, an excessive stubble height, or other data relevant to optimizing quality, which may also result in adjustments to the operating parameters. The processor (48) may consider an operator-selectable value weighting the measured ash content versus a speed of operation when adjusting the operating parameter.
