    Hey guys, I’m looking to upgrade from a parallel bar rake to a rotary, I also need a Tedder. I cut and bale roughly 30 acres. I’m intrigued by the rakes that can also Ted. I’m leaning towards the Stoll. Has anyone had good or bad experiences with them?

    My NH 163 4 star Tedder seems to be in reverse rotation (though I can’t see how this could be possible). See the picture I drew. My rotation tends to just pile the hay up in a windrow beside the outside arms. I’ve seen other Kuhn and NH 4 star Tedders rotating in the opposite direction from...

    Hi there all. This one is a bit of a yarn, but a technical dive, so hoping someone has some ideas! I have a Vicon RS410T tedder (4 head/star/basket (I always say "head", but I know everyone has their preferences)). Bought it used 4 years ago for $750. Only thing with it was that 3 of the the...

    Long story but I have a slightly left bent tube on my John Deere 752 Tedder. It seems to be causing more problems that what I thought it wood. Trying to find out who made them for John Deere. I know my 700 rake was made by Vermeer. Deer no longer has that tedder part. This will be my winter project.

    I am thinking about breaking down and getting a 4 basket tedder. I am wondering how much time they typically cut off the drying cycle, what to look for in a tedder, and how to use them? I live in east central Iowa near the Mississippi. We have lots of humidity and frequent rain. We tend to...

    Hello ALL, I am currently looking to purchase another 19' Hay tedder. Looking at the Enrossi built, farm king brand that a local dealer is marketing. We love our KUHN, but they are $1200 higher and the enrossi looks just as nice and heavy. THe dealer says he has had zero issues with the...

    I recently purchased a used 4 basket tedder. It's a Vermeer TD200. I noticed a few of the tines on the middle baskets were bent together, and didn't really think much about it. But now that I put hay on the ground and actually got to use it, I see what's happened. The previous owner had a...

    I have inherited a tedder from a friend who is getting out of hay. All he knows is that he bought it at an auction years ago. It says SPIDER on both arms. I am wondering if anyone knows who these are made by? I'm having a hard time finding out any information on them. This one is in pretty rough...

    Need to get some hydraulic hoses for a Krone KW-550T tedder. The main wing hose that connects to the tractor remote has sprung a leak. Are the Krone hoses connections different from US hydraulic hoses? Will I have to buy from a Krone dealer or can I get them from any store selling hydraulic...

    Moving equipment down the road can be a pain. By the time I load up and haul it will take time. If you figure I moved each one of these for the 31 miles it would take a whole day with a truck with multiple trips. Did a test run yesterday and with the exception of a blown tire on the tedder it...

    Going to inquire about a Kuhn GF 502 tedder for sale. Owner asking $5100. Never owner a tedder but they are very popular in East Texas and it might be a help in my Bermuda horse hay operations when the weather window is compressed. I only sell small squares of horse hay quality. Tedder is a...

    Hey Haytalk Friends... I have a New Idea 4227 4 basket tedder. One of the tines broke, flipped up (inside one) and caught the guard ripping it right off. It was so violent, it made the outside basket jump out of time. I did pull the wheel off, dropped the basket and re-positioned it back in...

    I live in east central Iowa. I have an H&S Tedder / Fluffer. I am wonder when is the best time to fluff the hay after cutting? I usually cut in the morning and am done around noon. It usually takes 4 days before I can bale. I always thought the best time to fluff the hay was the next...

    Does anyone have any first hand experience with the newer vermeer tedders with the hook tines? I'm looking for a new 6 basket tedder and am considering the vermeer TE250. Do the hook tines really work any better than the other brands out there? Do they really dry the hay any faster? I'd be...
