The stick machine removes larger foreign matter, such as burs and sticks, from the cotton. Stick machines use the centrifugal force created by saw cylinders rotating at 300-400 rpm to "sling off" foreign material while the fiber is held by the saw. The foreign matter that is slung off the reclaimer feeds into the trash-handling system. Processing rates of 1.5-2.0 bales/hr/ft of cylinder length are common.
