The most responsible resource-consuming stage of grain production is harvesting. Improving the efficiency of harvesting can be achieved by equipping combine harvesters with stripper headers. Stripper headers can be operated at higher speeds, which contributes to a 35-50% increase in productivity and a 20-25% reduction in fuel consumption. Stripper headers are especially effective when harvesting high-yielding crops with high humidity and weeds. However, their use in harvesting flat crops leads to large losses of grain, since there are no devices that can raise flat stems and feed them to the stripper zone. This problem is especially acute in the production of seeds of elite crops. Laboratory studies substantiated the basic design parameters and the operating mode of the copying stem lifter. A production audit confirmed that with stripper header, losses are reduced by 70%.
