equipment itself ranges from small handheld power tools up to tractors and combine
harvesters. There is also many other unpowered implements that will be towed or
otherwise operated, with all of these machines and implements vital to both organic
and non-organic agricultural procedures.
Most Common Agricultural Machines
The tractor is
undoubtedly the most common machine used in agriculture, even if some of its
original uses have been taken over by more specialised equipment over the
years. Basically tractors push and pull heavy loads and other equipment all
over the farm and are vital to its operations. They get their name from the
purpose they were designed and built for, that is to generate high traction or
a high tractive effort (torque) at slow speeds. They are robust and
hardwearing, though will occasionally need the services of an agricultural
gearbox supplier like Yorkshire-based YB Components.
tillage used to be common tasks for the tractor, but these are the main two
uses that have been taken over by specialist equipment. More modern tillage
implements such as disc harrows loosen the soil
and kill weeds competing for the soil’s nutrients in the process.
Disc harrows use
cutting edges in the shape of multiple concave metal discs positioned at an slanted
angle. The discs can be of different sizes depending on the required result,
and will usually consist of either two sections of offset discs or four sets of
tandem discs. The offsetting of the discs make sure that they can repeatedly
slice any part of the ground the harrow moves over.
harvester is designed to harvest a variety of grain crops as efficiently as
possible. The crops combines are used for include wheat, oats, rye, barley,
corn and many others too. The combine’s name comes from the fact it combines
the three necessary actions to harvest crops, namely reaping, threshing and
winnowing. Combine harvesters may occasionally require an agricultural clutch supplier
like Yorkshire-based YB Components.
Other Agricultural Machinery
planters are necessary machines for the mass production of crops, with their
job being to space the seeds out equally in long rows after the soil has been
tilled by a harrow.
through the countryside will often see bales of hay standing in fields,
especially towards the end of summer and throughout the autumn, and these are
created by hay balers which tightly
package grass into a storable form for the winter months.
known equipment is often used to spread fertilizer and pesticides, while modern
irrigation methods rely heavily on machinery such as engines and pumps. Many of
these machines will need an agricultural gearbox supplier like Yorkshire-based
