Project Example – Sugar Cane Harvester Modification for Biomass

This is an example of the development work that RCI performs for other OEM’s of Agricultural Equipment.


Modify a sugar cane harvester to attach to a row-insensitive corn head for the harvest of sweet sorghum.  The crop must be reduced to billets without leaves and loaded to a truck for transportation.


The solution for this project is as follows:

  • Remove front of unit, from the rear of the cab forward.
  • Develop new feed train between existing structure and new header.
  • Adapt row-insensitive corn header to unit.
