Rugged, ground-hugging header for rice

Few crops are as difficult to harvest as rice. It is tough, abrasive, and yields run high. In addition, you’re often harvesting in extremely wet ground conditions. These challenges lead to tough combining with conventional equipment.

The Honey Bee Rice Belt header speeds up harvest with features that allow it to hug the ground for faster, easier harvesting, eliminating the twisting and tangling problems associated with conventional auger headers. Using a proven draper-and-auger feeding system, the Honey Bee Rice Belt Header uniformly feeds the crop heads first, providing consistent harvest speeds, superior threshing and better harvest efficiency.
