Flexible cutterbars

Technology and market overview
Fabian von Beesten
Posted: 26.07.2021
Flexible cutting technology has been tried and tested for years and is fully developed. There is no doubt that the investment pays off quickly for medium and large soybean areas. This is particularly true in organic farming, where the soy price is up to three times higher than for conventional soy. It is to be hoped that contractors in soybean regions will increasingly use flexible cutters, especially since the machines can be used for other crops without any restrictions. This will be easier to achieve if soybean producers are prepared to pay an additional price for the use of optimum soybean harvesting technology by their contractors. It is not yet clear which producers will prevail in Europe in the long run. At present there is a wide range of equipment available. The American technology has been tested over many years in the large soybean regions. In particular, the hydraulic adjustment possibility during operation is making a name for itself. The domestic manufacturers are distinguished by various details. It is to be hoped that the manufacturers are correct in their assessment that the German market will develop well.
