photoblog image Belly Of The Beast

Belly Of The Beast

This is a picture of the inside of the Threshing Drum of our Rice Harvesting machine....it is the part of the harvester where the grains of rice are violently separated from the stalks.

 

The machine has just been re-assembled in readiness for  harvesting seasen which begins soon. Several parts in this image are new...extensive maintenance is required at the start of each harvesting seasen.

Fascinating stuff Ray. I'm not sure I have seen the inner organs of a rice thresher before..
Ray: It is a fascinating machine, Chris...basically a mobile factory.
Bravo pour la photo , ce tambour est vraiment tout propre ..Bon courage pour la récolte
Ray: La riziculture est rendue difficile car nous n’avons pas recours à l’irrigation, mais nous devons compter sur les pluies de la mousson au bon moment. La machine est prête à fonctionner dès que la récolte est mûre.

I can imagine that such machinery does need to be looked after especially considering the cost is a factor for many farmers. I've got no idea of the size of this. I've seen harvesters fro wheat but not rice. How br are those round blue/grey bars, please?
Ray: I'll show the whole machine in a couple of days in a way that will enable you to estimate it's size, Alan.

Those grey fingers are about 11cm long and 2cm diameter.
Original subject well captured in a clever framing
Ray: Vous êtes très gentil, Marie.
Fascinating.
Ray: I am pleased you think so, Sheila.
Presumably this will be working in water covered fields so I imaging rusting would be quite a problem to be dealt with on a regular basis. BTW good picutre, I like the angle.
Ray: Certainly the water/mud presents many maintenance challenges, Brian.
Vital equipment so maintenance is essential.
Ray: It is as you say, Bill.
What a great image this make, Ray! She's ready for work!
Ray: Yes...all prepared, Elizabeth.
the never ending journey....
