What is a FiberCut?

The FiberCut is a multi-height, pull-behind sickle mower that’s hydraulically driven and developed exclusively towards hemp fiber. This unit’s modular design is built to allow an operator to add, remove, and adjust the cutting arms of the machine. Because the FiberCut can operate at high speeds up to 12 mph, its efficiency is significantly higher compared to conventional and expensive forage harvesters and disc mines. With particular field circumstances, producers are able to perform at their peak. Components, parts, and supplies for this unit are carried by Bish Enterprises and at your local dealership located within the United States. All hemp harvesting equipment developed by Bish Enterprises can be viewed here.

    Versatility

    Unit works on a wide range of tractors and 3-point mount categories. The FiberCut is compatible with category 3 and 4. Both hitches (standard and quick-hitch setups) in its standard configuration, while an optional cat 5-point hitch is available for those that require it. The FiberCut requires less horsepower than competing machines, allowing for a wider range of tractor options available to the operator. We achieve this by powering the unit hydraulically vs mechanically. The lower horsepower requirements reduce operating costs for less fuel consumption and input costs. Unit is built on a modular platform. The FiberCut allows an operator to add remove and adjust the cutting arms of the machine to allow producers to achieve maximum performance with their specific field conditions.
