The Paddle has earned rave reviews from across the country. It’s the cost effective alternative to standard pickup combine tines when crop conditions make harvesting difficult and inefficient.
When we introduced the Paddle in the fall of 2002, we were confident it would increase your harvest in light, sparse or special crop conditions. But after we conducted a survey of Paddle customers after the harvest season, the results exceeded even our high expectations:
- 84% said the Paddle reduced crop loss
- 94% said the Paddle improved feeding
- 87% said the Paddle met or exceeded their expectations
- 94% said installation was fast and easy
- 90% said the Paddles were very durable
- 90% said they would recommend the Paddle to others
The Paddle is packaged ten to a box, and includes Paddles, screws, and complete installation instructions.
With its 6' width, the Paddle lifts and feeds crop that standard tines miss. Full crop contact provides positive and even feeding into the header. The Paddle helps reduce or eliminate the need for cumbersome and expensive air reels.
HCC’s patented tine mounting system makes installation fast and easy. Simply remove one screw and replace the standard plastic tine with a Paddle. On wood bat reels Paddles install between steel tines by drilling one hole for each Paddle attaching bolt.
Switching from standard tines to Paddle tines (and back again when desired) is quicker and less costly than other options. Thanks to HCC’s patented tine mounting system, installation is fast and easy. Simply remove one screw and replace the standard plastic tine with a Paddle. On wood bat reels, Paddles install between steel tines by drilling one hole for each Paddle attaching bolt. By limiting the number of Paddles used, you save installation time and money. In less than one hour, you can easily replace enough of your standard tines with Paddle tines to dramatically improve your harvest.
