Be the best in your field.
If you’re looking for fast, easy and cost-effective equipment for your farm, then look no further than the ST Grain Belt Swather from Honey Bee. Since it works on tractors with front-wheel assist, there’s no need to purchase a self-propelled windrower.
The ST Grain Belt Swather from Honey Bee is designed to lay a swath that will keep your harvesting equipment working at peak performance, no matter how heavy or light your crop is. Choose from shifting decks that switch between left, right and center delivery, or static decks that deliver from left and right. With control over the number and widths of your swaths, you’ll bale faster and pick up your forage crops more efficiently.
SCH Cutting System
The SCH Easy Cut Cutting System provides smooth, superior cutting. Spring steel guards with cutting edges on top and bottom, along with alternating, bolted, heat-treated sections, eliminate the need for hold downs. The system keeps dirt and debris from accumulating under the knives for increased performance in severe cutting conditions.
Using two shifting decks, double swath gives you in-cab control for right, left and centre delivery of your windrow.
The knife is driven by a 35 /16” (8.4 cm) stroke epicyclic knife drive that operates at 1,400 strokes per minute. The knife drive is driven by a low maintenance hydraulic drive motor. Double knife drive systems are standard equipment on 15′, 21′, 25′, 30′ and 36′ models.
The adapter subframe attaches to the three-point hitch on either the front or rear of the tractor. The PTO-driven pump is integrated into the subframe and is used to power the knife drives and draper belts.
The 3” (7.6 cm) diameter drive rollers provide traction in heavy crop conditions. Powered from the outside by a hydraulic motor, the drapers move the crop towards the swath opening for more uniform feeding.
