Title (EN) CROP CONDITIONING APPARATUS AND METHOD
(FR) APPAREIL ET METHODE DE CONDITIONNEMENT DE RECOLTES
Abstract:
(EN) In apparatus for conditioning crops such as grass, one or more conditioning devices engage crop passing through a passage and condition the crop by relative movement between the conditioning device and the crop. Preferably each conditioning device is a brush (10) having a multiplicity of stiff, resilient, elongated elements (10) which are of stiff, resilient, elongated elements (10) which are yieldable in more than one plane in response to engagement by the crop by bending of the elements. One brush may form a rotary conveying device (12) for conveying crop through the passage, and another brush (10, 37) may accelerate or retard the crop relative to the first brush. The second brush may be stationary (10) or may be another rotary brush (37). The conditioning apparatus may be mobile or stationary, and when mobile may include cutting means (22) For cutting crop to be conditioned.
(FR) Appareil pareil de conditionnement de recoltes telles que de l"herbe comprenant un ou plusieurs dispositifs de conditionnement qui saisissent l"herbe et la conditionnent par mouvement relatif entre le dispositif de conditionnement et l"herbe. De preference chaque dispositif de conditionnement est une brosse (10) ayant une multitude d"elements allonges, elastiques, et resistants (10) se deformant par courbure dans plus d"un plan lorsque l"herbe est saisie. Une brosse peut former un dispositif de transport rotatif (12) pour amener l"herbe vers le passage, et une autre brosse (10, 37) peut accelerer ou retarder l"herbe par rapport a la premiere brosse. La seconde brosse peut etre stationnaire (10) ou peut etre une autre brosse rotative (37). L"appareil de conditionnement peut etre mobile ou stationnaire, et lorsqu"il est mobile il peut comporter des moyens de coupe (22) pour couper l"herbe a conditionner.
