What equipment is used to harvest?

Harvesting crops include activities that cut the crop, collect the grain and excess plant materials, and help transport it to storage. While the equipment needed to harvest depends on the operation size and crop in question, in order to accomplish a successful harvest season, many farmers will need all or a few of the following: a combine and its respective header, cotton picker/stripper, forage harvester, forage wagon, grain auger or conveyor, grain bagger, grain cart, grain vacuum, and gravity wagon.

What crops are harvested by machine?

Row crops that are harvested by farm equipment include corn, soybean, wheat, and cotton. Additional crops that are harvested by machine include berries, fruit, nuts, sugar beets, sugarcane, and vegetables.

We feature all auctioneers in your region or equipment dealers near you that sell harvesting equipment on our website or you can simply complete a search for harvesting equipment and results will automatically populate with available harvesting equipment for sale that is closest to you.

What harvesting equipment is used for wheat?

A combine and grain header are the primary pieces of equipment used to harvest wheat. The grain header, also called a draper or wheat header, is the attachment at the front of the combine that catches the wheat and feeds it into the combine for cleaning and separating. The combine holds the wheat but when it fills up, it needs to be emptied before it can continue harvesting, which is where grain carts can come into play.

Who manufactures specialty harvesting equipment?

The categorization of specialty harvesting equipment is typically saved for crops such as nuts, vegetables, apples, grapes, and berries. Popular manufacturers of specialty harvest equipment include Pellenc, Oxbo International, Checchi & Magli, Columbo, Kelley Manufacturing, Amity Technology, GREGOIRE, Korvan, and many others.

What is my harvesting equipment worth?

The value of your harvesting equipment can vary based on its category, make, year, location, and hours of operation, among many other factors that are specific to the model. Understanding what equipment is worth is a challenge many farmers come across. In fact, 82% of the farmers we surveyed said it was their #1 pain point when buying and selling farm equipment.

With that challenge in mind, Tractor Zoom built a feature called Equipment Lists, which allows farmers to quickly and accurately gauge the value of their harvesting equipment (for FREE) based on its unique specifications. We leverage over $20B in equipment sales, and update our transaction data weekly, so farmers always have up-to-date auction and retail values to gauge what their harvesting equipment is worth in near, real-time.
