An agricultural reaper is a machine designed for efficiently reaping or harvesting crops in the field. It is commonly used for harvesting crops such as wheat, rice, barley, oats, and other small grains. The reaper typically consists of a cutting mechanism, which includes a reciprocating cutter bar or sickle bar, and a gathering mechanism that collects the cut crops into bundles or windrows. The machine is usually operated by a tractor or other power source, which drives the cutting and gathering mechanisms. Agricultural reapers are essential in modern farming to speed up the harvesting process, improve efficiency, and reduce labor requirements. They play a crucial role in ensuring timely and efficient crop harvesting, which is vital for maximizing crop yield and quality.
