Kondex Straw Claw chopper blades deliver the ultimate value in residue management and product performance. Our patented, self-serrating design uses a laser cladding additive on a through-hardened blade to control product wear and maintain blade sharpness longer. Controlled wear results in less chipping and blade damage, which in turn helps better maintain rotor balance and minimize maintenance.


  • Optimized residue management
  • Greater efficiency and fuel savings
  • Patented, stay-sharp design
  • Longer maintained balance
  • Extended blade life
  • Double bevel cutting edge

Stay-Sharp Design

A sharp knife is an efficient knife. Straw Claw features a self-serrating design that sharpens as it cuts. Gained from our Tungstrong™ laser cladding enhancement that directs the wear pattern of the blade edge, this design also allows for easier cutting and a reduction in fuel consumption.

Unlike the hard facing techniques used on traditional knives, Straw Claw's laser cladding application won't easily chip off, preventing premature blade dulling, inconsistent wear or imbalance, and replacement.

Straw Claw provides a consistent wear pattern to keep your rotor balanced and prevent damage to bushings and bearings.

Improved Residue Management

The performance of your straw chopper blades is a critical factor in residue management. Side-by-side testing proves Straw Claw creates smaller, more consistent particles than traditional blades. This produces a thinner, more evenly distributed crop mat that maximizes ground contact for the fastest microbial breakdown.

Straw Claw Performance (vs. traditional)

  • Optimized residue size and distribution
  • Maintained balance longer
  • Extended product life
  • Sustained blade sharpness
  • Consistent performance throughout life of blade
