Adjustable friction disc brakes on the caster wheels steady the wheels in the field and eliminate high-speed shimmy during road transport.
Regreasable rake wheel bearings as well as heavy-duty, regreasable nylon bushings in each rake wheel arm pivot provide long life and quiet, smooth operation.
Handy jack stand supports the hitch and tongue when not in use, and pivots into storage during field operation.
Adjustable clevis hitch can be easily changed to match tractor drawbar height.
Two hydraulic remote outlets are required—one for raising and lowering the raking wheel arm assemblies and one for swinging between transport and operating position. A third remote circuit is needed for the optional hydraulic windrow width adjustment.
Optional center wheel kit turns and moves the unraked center portion of the swath into the windrow, offsetting the hay from damp ground and exposing the underside of the swath for faster drying.
Optional two wheel conversion kit extends the raking width of selected New Holland trailing wheel rakes by installing an additional raking wheel to each rake frame.
Optional single side opening kit allows the operator to hydraulically extend only one side of the rake, for use when turning rain dampened windrows.
