SuperCrop® Hemp Header

SuperCrop® Hemp Header
Row-Crop Header Designed for Hemp Seed & Grain Harvesting

The FIRST Header Designed to Harvest Hemp!

SuperCrop Hemp Header
Hemp seed and grain harvesting is a fascinating process that involves the meticulous gathering of one of nature’s most versatile and nutritious crops. As the sun-kissed fields of hemp sway gently in the warm breeze, the diligent farmers embark on a journey to capture the bountiful rewards of their labor. The mature hemp plants stand tall, their vibrant green foliage dancing in harmony with the golden hues of the surrounding landscape. Equipped with specialized machinery and a keen eye for detail, the skilled harvesters carefully navigate through the rows of plants, ensuring that each precious seed and grain is efficiently collected.
Reports
  • Sickle speed
  • Row unit speed
    • Will report speed of left row unit
  • Pitch position
    • Pitch position will be calibrated to 0 with header fully heeled and increase as header rocks forward
  • Deckplate angle
    • Measured with respect to gravity
    • Note: this number it intended to be used for setup and calibration. It is measured with an accelerometer and the reported value is filtered to reduce interference from machine vibration. The value will be “blank” if the machine is driving through rough terrain and the unit cannot decipher a stable angle
  • Header run hours
  • Operator run hours
  • Signals
    • Reports raw values reported from the 5 input sensors
  • Values
    • Reports and stores the Header pitch at which the last calibration was performed
Inputs
  • Alarms & notification
    • Ability to enable/disable 4 groups of alarms/notifications
    • Default will be set to show all alarms
  • Header hour reset
    • Allows operator to reset the run hours on the header
Warnings
  • Sickle speed higher than recommended max
    • Thrown as soon as rpm exceed 560
  • Sickle speed lower than recommended min
    • Thrown if sickle speed is < 520 for more than 20 seconds
  • Belt slippage – left row unit
    • Compares the ratio of “left row unit speed/auger speed” to the “Learned” ratio l and throws a warning if the measured ratio is less than the calibrated ratio by more than the percentage input as “speed differential value”
  • Belt slippage – right row unit
    • Compares the ratio of “right row unit speed/auger speed” to the “Learned” ratio and throws a warning if the measured ratio is less than the calibrated ratio by more than the percentage input as “speed differential value”
  • Belt slippage – sickle speed
    • Compares the ratio of “sickle speed/auger speed” to the “Learned” ratio and throws a warning if the measured ratio is less than the calibrated ratio by more than the percentage input as “speed differential value”
  • Header angle – ground clearance
    • Assumes the combine is parked on level ground (front to back) during calibration and learns the approximate pitch position where the header skid becomes lower than the front row unit skid. A warning is thrown during operation if the header is heeled farther than this pitch position
  • Header angle – calibration angle
    • Stores the pitch position where the last calibration was completed and warns the operator if the head is heeded farther than this pitch during operation
Service Reminders (pop up reminder to operator)
  • 6 and 50 hour maintenance reminders
    • Reminder will appear the first key cycle after header hours reach a multiple of the maintenance reminder frequency
  • Reminders
    • Visually inspect drive belts on both ends of header
    • Visually inspect sickle for damage
    • Grease sickle gearbox
    • Grease row unit idler
    • Grease belt tensioner arms

he Horizon system will create a log of certain system errors including, the most extreme measurement of the value that caused the error, and the time duration the error was present. These error logs do not need to be routinely checked, but Bish will occasionally desire to reference them for certain systems when processing warranty claims. Bish will be able to send the log to Headsight who can decode it and return the results.
The errors logged will be:
  • Sickle speed high
  • Sickle speed low
  • Belt slippage left row unit
  • Belt slippage right row unit
  • Belt slippage sickle drive

Mechanical Components Included in Kit:
  • Sickle speed sensor
  • Left row unit speed sensor
  • Right row unit speed sensor
  • Auger speed sensor
  • Header pitch sensor
  • 4 snoot-mount sensors for height control
  • Associated wiring

Low-Cost Maintenance

Maintenance costs on this header are extremely low, with the average cost of less than$1/per acre (based on 12 row header at 3,000 harvested acres of sorghum), which will lead to an overall reduction in product cost.

Adaptability & Versatility

As the nations leader in header adapter manufacturing and distribution, we make sincere efforts to help you avoid being locked into a particular combine manufacturer by allowing a variety of combines to fit or adapt to our headers.

Efficiency

When production costs are a focal point in the minds of today’s producers or harvesters, it’s essential that products purchased aid in the reduction of these production costs. We had this in mind when designing the SuperCrop header.

We Stand Behind Our Products

Bish Enterprises offers its industry leading warranty on every new SuperCrop header sold. Bish Enterprises will provide a parts and labor warranty for the drive system, auger, row units, and electronic components against all manufacturer defects for a term of 12 months.

Easy to Find Parts

Bish Enterprises uses quality components and carries all of the needed parts and supplies forthe header, but this header was designed with both the customers and existing dealers inmind, and most of the components that are used are already available at local dealershipsacross the United States
