Threshing seed beans in the field

We drove out the seed thresher to the field and threshed some beans.

Note that we are processing whole plants rather than individual pods. (Thatís probably obvious from the video.)

The seed thresher is actually a Soil Shredder that has been modified to run on DC current so we can easily change the threshing speed. (@reid_in_qc did the conversion!) The thresher is running off our electric field vehicle.

You can convert some wood chippers to do the same thing.

The wind was pretty quiet so we werenít able to get all the chaff out quickly but we did the base we could in the shorted amount of time!

Here’s the video:
