A corn harvester is as the name implies an agricultural piece of equipment used to harvest corn. They are made by many different brands and are commonly found on the market new and used. It was first invented in the 1930's and has been important to corn farming ever since. It operates by cutting the stalk of corn first. It then strips the stalk and is put through a fan where the remaining parts of the stalk are removed. The stalks blow out back onto the field and the ears are dropped into a conveyer belt where they are then put in a bucket.
