During this time we may know heavy equipment is a tool used for building or building construction. But agriculture also requires heavy equipment to accelerate large-scale agricultural processes or with vast agricultural areas and plantation work, such as oil palm, sugarcane, or wheat gardens.
Heavy equipment used for plantation and agriculture is used both when harvesting and when preparing agricultural land. Here are some types of heavy equipment used in agriculture and plantations, among them:
The tractor is a vehicle made to provide high traction or torque at a slow speed. Tractors are often used as a means of transport in agriculture or in construction. Tractors were originally agricultural tools used to help the rafters on agriculture, especially for tillage. But now its function began to expand, some agricultural tools can be taped or pulled behind it.
Combine or harvester combine is a tool used to harvest grain. This tool is named combine, or in the Indonesian language a combination, because it combines the three benefits in agriculture into one, namely reaping, threshing, and winnowing (separating the seeds). The types of plants that can be harvested with this tool such as wheat, barley, corn, and soybeans.
There are four common types of harrows: disc harrow, time harrow, chain harrow and harrow disk chain. Harrows were originally drawn by cattle, such as horses, donkeys or oxen. In modern practice now the harrow is almost always attached with the tractor, either behind after the tractor through the pull rod or mounted at three points of obstruction.
In agriculture, sprayer is used for watering or fertilizing fluids, or pastisides and herbicides into plant seeds. The sprinkler length of the sprayer varies from 18 to 37 meters.
A baler is a farming tool used to condense stemmed crops, such as straw, wheat, and the like, to be easy to move and store. The results of these spindles can have different shapes and sizes depending on the type of baller used.
