This portable foot-operated thresher makes grain processing faster and less labor intensive for both backyard farmers and small-scale grain growers, and is very useful for rural areas where there is no fuel or electricity. Small-scale farmers in many parts of the world use small, portable, foot- or hand-powered machines to effectively thresh their grain. Historically, similar seed cleaning machines were widely available and commonly used by small farmers in America, too. But with the advent of modern agri-business farming, grain growing became large-scale, and so did the process of grain cleaning. Small-scale affordable, human-powered threshers gave way to large, expensive fuel engine machines, effectively taking mechanized grain cleaning out of the hands of small growers. Foot-powered threshers put this power back into the hands of families and small farms, by making small-scale mechanized grain processing possible.

The Sylvantec foot-powered thresher is no longer available from Sylvantec; however, foot-powered threshers are still useful tools for small-scale grain processing.

Sylvantec Seems to be gone
by: Steven Pierce

Following up on Sylvantec is problematic. The web address no longer seems to be a registered domain. Anyone have any feedback to help clear this up?
