Mower conditioner: General information
A mower Conditioner, also referred to as a hay conditioner, is a very unique type of agricultural equipment that crushes and crimps freshly cut hay from the farm in order to enhancer faster and efficient drying. Drying hay proficiently is very vital, especially for first crop hay which has a variety of coarse stalks that do not dry faster as second crop hay.
A mower conditioner is specially constructed with 2 grooved rollers through which hay is forced to pass through. The two opposing grooved rollers are raised, with an intertwining chevron pattern. As hay passes through the grooved rollers, the stalks are split, providing a large surface area for moisture to evaporate. The mower is basically known to make the work of large-scale hay farmers easier, especially in areas with kittle sunshine.
The 2 grooved rollers can be made of steel, flail or rubber. A roller conditioner is meant for squeezing relatively hard stems of hay. Flail roller conditioners on the other hand are built to smash the wax coat from the leaves of forages so as to speed up the drying process. The steel roller conditioner is very strong as compared to flail and rubber conditioners. It is for crushing very hard stalks of hay for faster and mre effective drying.
