The Busy End...

Here is the front of the Rice Harvester...showing the Rakes, Knives and screw that are all housed in the articulating head of the beast.

looks like you're in charge of maintenance smile (And coughing up for it of course)
Ray: I bought the machine [about 7 years ago]. The maintenance bill is large. Na's brother operates the machine. He harvests his farm and our farms. He also harvests other farms, for a fee, and that income is used to pay for the running costs and maintenance, and the small remainder pays him a salary and repays my first outlay.
It looks vicious!
Ray: Harvesting is an aggressive/violent process from the point of view of the rice plants, Elizabeth. smile
I remember when you bought it. Time flies. Good job keeping on top of the maintenance. Those blokes look like they know how to get it a chomping !!!!

smile
Ray: Na's Brother does a good job of looking after the machine, Rob.

Looks like a giant caterpillar making its way along, Ray
Ray: Yes...like some kind of animal, Lisl.

No rice plant is safe when confronted with this marvellous contraption
Ray: On, no! The plants are all doomed, Chris.
J'aime beaucoup ces machines ..de belles creations pour soulager les travailleurs !
Bonne journée
Ray: La mécanisation agricole est intéressante et les machines ressemblent souvent à de gros animaux, Claudine.

Wel done on your maintenance regime; it looks new to me (can you look after my bikes for me?) Its good to know that it earns its keep. We have contract harvesters here rather than smaller farms having to make such large investment in machinery.
Ray: Rice farming in Thailand is not a way to get rich, Alan. I am still struggling with the numbers.

It looks in good condition at the front end Ray.
Ray: No expense spared on the maintenance, Chad.
It doesn't hang about!
Ray: It is certainly not underpowered, Bill.
Definitely the bit to stand clear of.
Ray: Yes...it has many dangerous things in there, Brian.

and we have to be cautious considering all the rakes, knives ...
Ray: Yes...everyone must take care around this machine when it is operating, Philine.

Wow. Serious business!
Ray: Oh yes...best Japanese Farming technology at work here, Bonnie.
i love this shot Ray... it's not that big a harvester judging by the tire it is on... good video as well....petersmile
Ray: The machines must be small to operate in the tiny rice fields, Peter...this one has a cutting width of 3 metres, and is the most popular size.

Wheat machines in Australia, by comparison, can be 4 times as big.
