Harvest time is usually the peak of the agricultural season. It’s also usually the busiest part of the agricultural season. Additionally, harvests have very small windows. The activity must start and end at precisely the right time. Otherwise, a year’s worth of effort could be for naught.
Harvesters are some of the largest vehicles in our inventory at Oneonta Equipment Rental & Sales. We also stock medium-sized and small vehicles for agricultural and industrial projects ranging from community gardens to large housing developments. We also rent and sell concrete tools and other finishing equipment.
These farming machines are not just for corn, oats, rice, barley, wheat, and other cereal crops. They can also gather rapeseed, soybeans, sunflower seeds, and flax.
Additionally, harvesters aren’t just gatherers. These machines also separate edible or useable crop parts, usually the grain, from the inedible stalks. Then they move the unwanted stalks and husks away from the grains. We also rent and sell harvesters that chop residue into small pieces and spread them across the field in the wake of the combine, as well as modified harvesters that handle weeding and other pre-harvest chores.
Harvesters aren’t always the right tool for the job. That’s especially true if you only have a few dozen acres to work. Some harvester alternatives include:
· In-Row Weeders: These vehicles are outstanding alternatives to large harvesters and dangerous pesticides. These weeders are specially designed to tear up weeds without destroying the still-growing crop.
· Tractors: These vehicles are primarily, but not exclusively, designed for hauling. Some have a wider wheelbase that enables a farmer to easily attach harvesting equipment to the tractor and make quick work of a small space.
· Harvesting Tools: Conventional wisdom holds that using a harvester or other machine is much more cost-efficient than manually gathering crops. That was probably true when your father farmed this land, but it may no longer be true today. Your father’s workforce didn’t have the advanced harvesting tools readily available today.
That last alternative brings up an important point. At Oneonta Equipment Rental & Sales, we want to ensure you get the job done, whether or not that involves heavy equipment rental in Oneonta.
