Effective February 10, 2015: Due to unforeseen circumstances, we regret that the Front End Loader Seed Harvester no longer is available.

Seed Harvester Action

The spinnning brush combs the seed off and the air flow pulls it into the hopper.

Our Front End Loader Seed Harvester (FELSH - currently out of stock), 8 foot (2.4 m) model, lets you harvest seeds or leaves from a wide array of species. Custom built with attention to detail to match your tractor loader, our FELSH is easy to mount, use and unload.

A patented dual-stage, reversible brush effectively combs ripe seed off plants, while the rotation sets up an airflow that pulls the seed into the hopper. Unloading is a simple, one person operation from the tractor seat, with hydraulic bottom dump door.

Harvest seeds quickly and efficiently from wild stands, seed production fields and nurseries. Still picking native grass, wildflower, herbal or medicinal plant seeds by hand? Increase you efficiency with a Prairie Habitats' FELSH. Our Seed Harvesters pay for themselves in short order! Get the volumes of seed and the species diversity you need for many different projects, or provide new income opportunities for your farm with high value native seed.
