Said endless conveyor comprises transporting chain links (25; 26) articulated to one another. Said harvesting equipment further comprises at least a retaining plane (B; C) for the plant stalks, located above the cutting plane and comprising retaining means oriented outwards. Said harvesting equipment is so designed that a front face (77; 78) of the endless conveyor (10; 11), facing the cutting and retaining means, is substantially closed.
