German term or phrase: Doppelknoter
Another tractor query:
Das Silageschneidwerk müßte verbessert werden. Die Garnreste am Doppelknoter sollten irgendwie gesammelt werden (vielleicht absaugen).
I assume this farmer is unhappy with the cutting equipment of his baler because the remains of the twine used to tie the bales is either making a mess/affecting the equipment in some way. But what is Doppelknoter?

Explanation:
A Doppelknoten' is just a double knot, which is more secure than a single knot. There seem to be many different types, depending on the particular application.

double knotter mechanism...


Explanation:
The reason just "knotter" sounds strange, is than in the English language we add words, which where not there in the original German. This typically happens to nouns derived from verbs. So we would say knotter mechanism or knotting mechanism, knotting or knotter unit, knotting or knotter assembly or knotter or knotting system.
