This is a RICE ONLY COMBINE HARVESTER. This means that the MF 2168 harvests rice and rice only.

MF 2168 is a tough tracked combine harvester that is capable of harvesting rice under very extreme conditions, for instance under extremely wet soils of paddy rice.

This machine is user friendly and very simple to operate besides being reliable and dependable. The MF 2168 is built with a tough 4 cylinder engine that economically generates enough power to cut, thresh, and clean rice. It conveys grains into a bin with an unloading auger or bagging system.

This combine harvester is a good investment for small and medium-scale farmers, cooperatives, and agribusiness enterprises in Africa and Asia.

As small and maneuverable as it appears, the MF 2168 features a double threshing drum while most competing brands in this category will have only one. This feature benefits the farmer by having an increased threshed grains purity.

Basically in Africa and Asia, MF 2168 could come in to replace casual laborers, which means that farmers can harvest up to one hectare per hour which is way better than what 20 casual laborers can do in 24 hours.

It works quite well on wet ground for paddy rice as well as for dryland rice,

The tracked wheels enhance grip on wet soils and also prevents soil compaction.

MF 2168 is pocket friendly. It is relatively cheap for smallholder farmers and contractors to acquire.

MF 2168 has a version with a bigger grain tank, meaning bagging is not done in the field but rather on the sidelines when the bin is full. There are other models of MF 2168 that have a bagging system whereby bagging and harvesting happen concurrently hence no need to stop operations in the field.

Once you set the cutting height, the operator does not have to keep on adjusting the header. The header resets itself automatically after every turn.

Why not invest in One!
