Operated via a tractor’s PTO shaft, maize sheller available at Tractors PK, is used for separating kernels from cobs. This implement is utilised during the process of harvesting. It rubs cobs and reduces chances of harm to the seeds’ germination capacity. It shells maize by beating and shearing done by the cast iron rotating shelling disc. It passes the shelled kernels via an air stream and gets rid of the empty cobs. Farmers can then collect the cleaned maize kernels from the machine’s bottom.
