    Curious if anyone has had any experience with one of these rakes. Pros/Cons? My entire fleet of equipment is Vermeer due to dealer support and being well built. I currently am running a Vermeer R23 bar rake. This rake is amazing, though it just doesn't work the best for my odd shaped fields. I...

    I started haying our own field last year. I've only done it half a dozen times. About 3 acres. One of my questions I always forget to ask between cuttings is what is the best way to pattern the raking, to get it ready for baling? I currently rake two rows together, and it works fine. The day I...

    I bale a lot of baleage and have a v rake that doesn't work very well in heavy material. I was wondering what everyone else was using and why? I am thinking of trading my v rake for a 9 or 12 ft merger. Or would a rotary rake work better?

    I will be cash cropping 60 acres of alfalfa for baleage this coming summer. The question I have is, will I be able to cut all 60 acres in one day, and be able to bale it the next? I can lay the hay as wide as the discbine to dry it fast. I also have a wheel rake, will that be able to rake...

    Looking at for a new rake, what do you guys prefer wheel or rotary? It will be ran in corn stalks mostly, and some hay. ALso do those plastic rings on wheel rakes work? ***Side note; most fields won't have chopped stalks thanks

    Local dealer has a 14 wheel H&S HC used. They are asking $9000. It looks like it is in good shape and rubber looks originial with little wear. I have a JD700 roll bar and I am tired of manually getting off and folding and unfolding. I am not a big fan of wheel rakes but am willing to succumb...

    I am thinking of getting a rotary. I like the quality of the Krone. I will probably have to go used ... New is 30+. Down here if rain in the spring is good two windrows would do great. Last year we would have put 4 together. We tried a wheel rake and it did do good on small plots. Anybody use...

    Ok the old M&W rake has more welds than I can count, and teeth are coming out of it faster than I can put new ones in, and now one has broke off and stuck in my rear tire of tractor, so maybe its about time, you think? Been looking at the Kuhn Speed rakes over the past year or so, like the high...
