Custom fabrication of a Hammer blower that will hammer husks down to small squares and then blow them by means of a fan up to 5 meters away from the husker to a compost site or bin.
The idea being that small husk parts will compost down much better then large parts and by blowing the husks away from the processing area straight into a bin or trailer it saves a lot of handling.

square section and the fan in the middle, with all the covers removed.

We hope to let this machine trial run over the next de-husking season and if successful will manufacture more units to add as an accessory to our standard V-Twin de-husker.
