BLOWER CHAFF CUTTER

These are (Chaff cutters) are very special machines in the livestock production husbandry. It reduces cost of productions in terms of labour requirements and cost effectiveness. It makes the work becomes so easy than manual hand operations. That is why when you are selecting the best type of chaff cutting machine, it is very important to be careful on how you go about it, otherwise you might end up incurring a lot of cost in your production. The following are some of the highlights you need to consider when choosing the best chaff cutter to use.

  • Materials

A good chaff cutter should be made of materials that are cheap, durable and have a long lifespan. The materials used to construct the machine should be able to support the heavy duty and heavy work operations without causing problems.

  • Noise pollution

  •  Excess noise may cause earing problems. Most chaff cutters produces sounds, vibrations and noise when in operation. Therefore on selecting the chaff cutting machine, it is advisable to choose the one that can operate silently or produces low sounds and vibrations.
  • Multipurpose duty

Dealing with livestock feeds involves the use of dry fodder or grass or just a green fodder. The best chaff cutting machine should be the one that can cut both dry fodder and green fodder at the same time, or even the soft branches of the trees or sugarcane carcass.

  • Cutting sizes

The rate of animal digestion depends on the size of the chopped fodder pieces. Small sized chopped fodder ensures faster digestion and high milk production efficiency. It is very important to choose that machine that can produce the recommended size of fodder feeds by the farmer.

  • Mode of operation

The machine should have easy operation mode since most farmers especially smallholders to medium holder farmers are less skilled, which means they require machines that can give them easy time when in operation.

  • Safety of the machine

the chaff cutting machine should be safe and free from accidents. All the components and systems should be well covered so as to provide safety to the operator. The belts, gears and delicate system components should be protected well.

  • Compact in design

  • the chaff cutting machine should be well compacted in the design so that when it is installed, it should not be able to occupy large space as this might also improve safety when in operation.
  • Design capacity

Most chaff cutting machines are produced in different sizes and production capacities. The best machine is the one that can provides an output production capacity of between 700kg/hr. to 2500kg/h of chopped fodder.

  • Size of blades

Consider the blade size. The longer the blade the faster the rate of production. A good machine should have a blade sizes that ranges between 12 inches to 20 inches. This range sizes can offer the best quality size of the feeds for the livestock.

  • Automation

Manually operated chaff cutting machines are cheaper but it is limited to some duties and work environments. The automated chaff cutting machine is therefore the best choice since it can work in all environments and can provides heavy duty operations than the manually operated type.

  • Power consumption

it is recommended to consider their the power consumption efficiency of the machine your buying. Consider the power output, motor rating and engine capacity. The best machine should have motor capacity ranging from 3hp to 10hp and engine capacity of between 5Hp to 10hp.

HOW TO MAINTAIN CHAFF CUTTERS.

The routine maintenance and management practices of various types of chaff cutters are just  the same.

  • Before starting the operation of the machine, regularly check and adjust the system  components according to the regulations, and then carry out the work after meeting the technical requirements.
  • All the moving and rotating and fixed blades should always keep the cutting edge sharp, otherwise they should be disassembled and sharpened.
  • Check and ensure that the welded parts are reliable and there should be no collision before using chaff  cutter machine.
  • Regularly check and inspect all the connected parts to ensure all the bolts and nuts are solid. If there is loose please tight them immediately before switching on the machine.
  • Every moving and revolving part of the chaff cutter machine needs to be lubricated regularly. Therefore, please clean up and add lithium grease to pay attention to lubrication, gear box lubrication oil every season and the main bearing to minimize rust and cracking of the machine due to wear and tear.
  • Before adding lubricating oil, remove all dust and sundries to avoid tampering the oil.
  • The moving and fixing knives should be kept sharp, replaced or polished in time after wearing, and the moving blades should be ground on the inclined plane and the fixing blades should be ground on it.
  • It is advisable to check whether all parts are worn or deformed. If such cases are found, then they should be replaced in time before operating the machine.
  • If abnormal operation is heard, the machine should be stopped immediately for checking. It is forbidden to troubleshoot or open the protective cover when the machine is in operation.
  • Chaff cutter machine operators should not stay away from the machine when starting the machine. When they are away from the machine, they must cut off the power supply and prohibit children from approaching the machine to avoid dangerous situations.
  • Wash the machine rollers hoppers, blades and others system components with diesel to avoid rusting and apply lubrication oil at bushes and sides of metering rollers. This will protect the machine from wear and tear.
  • All the rings should be removed from the shaft and checked regularly together with the spoons attached to the rings.
  • The machine should always be kept under shade and protected area away from the harsh environmental conditions to increase the life span.
