The present invention relates to a corn thresher comprising at least one feeder mounted on a platform, and having an opened top for receiving a load of corn. It is also consist of a cylinder, which is being electrically actuated to push a corn from one end of the feeder to its opposite end horizontally through a passage way within the feeder. A magnetic sensor coupled to each of the cylinder for controlling its movement on the platform. At least one cutter, each configured at the opposite end of each feeder for threshing the corn's seeds from its stem. In this context, filtering is located below the cutter for separating the corn seeds and the stem. A collector under the filtering means for collecting the corn seeds; wherein the cylinder is configured to continuously push another corn from the one end of the feeder when the threshed corn leaves the cutter. Overall, this invention can reduce the human effort and increase the productivity in the corn food processing industries.
