Mechanical cane harvester lops off the unwanted top of the sugarcane stalk while contra-rotating circular blades cut stalks close to the ground where sugar is concentrated. Twin opposing screws pull cane stalks into the chipper, then ejected into the attending dump truck.  Watching this machine made my privates hurt.
