RSM F 1500 is a new forage harvester featuring an advanced forage harvesting technologies and a laconic simplicity of design. The new cutterhead provides a high (up to 85%) evenness of cutting lengths, improving the forage intake by animals. With the shortest path in its class, the combine’s energy efficiency has been greatly improved.

Key features

High quality of forage

Rugged design of the feedrolls guarantees reliable operation in any yield conditions. The feedrolls are driven by a Rostselmash proprietary gear case.
  • The lateral tilt frame on the feedroll housing enables ground contour following with any header attached.
  • One of four lengths of cut can be selected: 6/11/15/26 mm with a complete set of knives or 12/22/30/52 mm with a half-set of knives.
  • The hydraulic roll damper prevents damage to the feedrolls and prevents false activation of the stone detector when handling uneven windrows.
  • For ease of cutterhead servicing, the feed roll housing can swing out open.
Feeding system
F 1500 combines use a new cutterhead featuring 32 knives arranged in a four-row chevron pattern.
  • The cutterhead diameter is 630mm; rotation speed is 1,200 rpm. It can operate with a half-set of knives for increased length of cut.
  • Heavy duty journals and bearings give the cutterbar the strength to do the job
  • Cutterhead bed clearance is adjusted automatically.
  • The new sharpening device doubles the knives sharpening speed.
The kernel processor is engaged by a hydraulic drive. The new slider design of the kernel processor does not require its removal when switching to grass harvesting.

Heavy-duty bearings for enhanced reliability of the unit.
Slider-type kernel processor (option)
It can apply diluted inoculants in the range of 30 to 420L per hour.
  • 390L tank for diluted inoculants;
  • There are 2 points of application – onto the feedrolls to clean the chutes with water, and into the blower for better mixing of the inoculant.

High performance

The engine system includes a gearbox and a main clutch. The gearbox drives the transmission pump, high and low pressure hydraulic system pumps. With the clutch, power can be transmitted directly from the engine crankshaft to the cutterhead and blower.
  • Minimized power losses in primary harvesting units due to direct transmission of power from the engine shaft.
  • The feedrolls gear case is belt-driven from the cutterhead shaft. This simple solution synchronises feedrolls and cutterhead speeds, and maintains a constant length of cut under any load.
510 h.p. turbocharged aftercooled YAMZ 65804 diesel engine built specially for combines.
  • 21% of torque backup for smooth work when the engine overloaded;
  • 750L fuel tank for non-stop work throughout the day.


F 1500 combines feature a suspended Comfort Cab with panoramic glazing and enhanced noise insulation. Once you are in, you’ll know how comfortable a workplace can be.
  • Adviser II voice information system is continuously watching over the combine systems, allowing you to monitor process stability and prevent breakdowns
  • The cab features a heater, an air conditioner and a beverage cooler
  • A new HST control joystick on the armrest makes controlling the key functions easy and convenient.

  • Reduces losses of the chopped material thanks to a more convenient control of crop flow.
  • Reduces operator fatigue, allowing you to steer the machine and control crop unloading at the same time.
Video monitoring system (option)
