Double-cut harvestor update

With the limited success with last year’s double-cut project, updates to the harvestor have been undertaken to allow cut tops to be conveyed away from the lower stalks. Relocating the sickle motor away from the discharge area while making it more efficient with a direct-drive was also implemented. 

With harvest came a dissapointing result as the 9 foot tall plants did not feed in as anticipated. After a series of changes, the project was finally abandoned with hard lessons learned.
