Harvest row crops and collect lower branches while leaving more stem in the field.
The Super CleanCut is a new draper-style header designed to harvest the whole hemp plant. Cooperatively designed by Formation Ag and Bish Enterprises, the two biggest names in purpose-built hemp harvesters, the Super CleanCut increases yields and efficiency by picking up the crop, and leaving a larger percentage portion of the stalk in the field.
Our proprietary cutting and feeding mechanism reduces wrapping issues that most non-hemp-specific headers encounter. The poly snouts help lift lower branches to increase yield while reducing the amount of harvested stalk material. Aggressive cutting technology enables the mechanical harvesting of thicker stalks.
Harvest dense plants and convey them into a truck, cart, or a
windrow without losing cannabinol content.
The CleanCut is designed for harvesting tough and fibrous crops while maintaining gentle handling of cut material. Cut material lands on an over-sized draper conveyor and conveyed to right side of the header.
Cut plants are conveyed into an offload conveyor and into a truck or cart driving alongside the harvester. The offload conveyor can easily be detached for windrowing plants alongside the cutting path.
Built with over-sized reels and conveyors, the CleanCut resists wrapping of tall plants and fiber. Catch-points and other potential wrapping points are minimized in the design of the cutter and framing.
Harvest buds and leave the stalks in the field.
Collection of the harvested buds can either be collected in Formation Ag’s GrassHopper cart, or conveyed directly into a truck driving alongside the harvester.
Collection of only the buds allows for easier processing of the material before sending to processing. By leaving the stems in the field, drying efficiency can be greatly increased and waste material going into extraction is minimized.
The CleanStrip will be available in several sizes and can allow for harvesting at speeds of up to 8 acres per hour (depending on planting method, plant size and shape, moisture content, etc.)
Hemp decortication at the lowest cost per ton per hour.
The FiberTrack 660 is a 60 inch wide machine with add on auxilliary machinery that can be sold as a stand-alone unit, or a fully automated system with secondary fiber and hurd cleaning, bagging, and bailing.
Designed and built completely in the U.S., the FiberTrack 660 is the most efficient decortication machine available for businesses of many different sizes. The system can be set up as a stand-alone unit for initial testing and specifications for buyers, or set up as a complete autimated system.
The oversized chaff collection cart is designed specifically for hemp. Pull behind a combine to collect additional flower material that would normally be lost during combine harvesting. Quickly unload material directly into a truck or fieldside central location.
The Grasshopper is designed to collect additional material that would be lost during harvest using a combine.
Specifically designed for hemp, the Grasshopper collects additional leaf and plant material that can be used for animal feed in addition to grain. It can also be used with other crops for additional animal feed collection, weed control, or removal of additional plant material from the field.
