AbstractSeed cotton harvested by a stripper is blown upward along a duct to an open saw cylinder. The locks of cotton are snagged on the teeth of the saws of the saw cylinder while the air passes to within the saw cylinders and out the ends of the saw cylinder. The locks of cotton knocked from the saw cylinder are reclaimed by a reclamation saw and doffed into the main duct to again be brought to the main open saw cylinder. The seed cotton is doffed from the open saw cylinder into an overhead basket of the cotton harvester.
