Title: STRIPPER FRONT
Abstract:
A harvester front (1) includes an elongate drum (2) mounted for rotation about an axis generally transverse to the direction of travel of the harvester. The drum (2) has a plurality of crop-engaging teeth (3) distributed across and around the drum (2). A cowl (10) at least partially surrounds the drum (2) on a leading side (11) and defines an inlet (12) disposed forward and adjacent the drum (2). A flow of air is induced from the rotation of the drum (2) and contained within the cowl (10) to establish a flow of air through the inlet (12) from the area forward of the drum (2).
