The Logic MSH420 Seed Harvester has a 5.5hp Honda engine with a centrifugal clutch which drives a 4′(1.2metre) rotary brush with 150mm long, stiff bristles, designed to sweep the seed heads it comes into contact with into the hopper. The harvester has been developed over a period of years to work on a wide variety of sites and conditions varying from moorland heather to wild flower meadows and coronation meadows.
The large 22×11-8 flotation tyres make it ideal for working on soft ground or rough conditions. The brush has two working height ranges and is variable between 0-350mm and 175-530mm which is suitable for the collection of the vast majority of seed types. The operator has the ability to adjust the height on the move via the switch box controllling the electric actuator, thereby accommodating varying plant heights. The seeds are automatically swept into the 600litre hopper. Once the hopper is full, or the operation finished, it is manually tipped 180 degress to discharge the seeds into the three, fitted bags, ready for removal and futher processing.
Logic also produce the MSH320 Seed Harvester which is a simpler version with a 300mm maximum sweeping height, primarily designed for wild flower seed collection. Please see MSH320 product information page for full details.
