The patented Lift-Control® system improves suspension, and the models feature a non-stop auto-reset safety breakaway, and externally removable disc bearing stations with heavy-duty gears and bearings.

Rotary rake series

Massey Ferguson offers three rotary rake models in its RK Series. The high-capacity models gently sweep hay or forage into a uniform windrow to match any baling or chopping application. Sweeping, rather than rolling, maximizes leaf retention and provides better airflow within the windrow for faster, more even drying. Model RK3824 features a single-basket, 13.5-ft. right delivery; Model RK3855 is a twin basket (27.5 ft.) for right-side delivery or two single windrows; and Model RK3879 is a twin basket with 26.6-ft.center delivery.

Kuhn North America, Inc., introduces the GA 8121 Gyrorake. Suited for farm operations that bale large quantities of dry hay at working widths of 24 ft. 3 in. to 26 ft. 3 in., the central-delivery rake design creates ideal windrows for round or large square balers, with windrow width adjustments from 4 ft. 7 in., to 6 ft. 7 in. The 3-D articulation allows the rotor to precisely follow field contours for clean raking, while the tricycle undercarriage has four wheels located close to the tines to ensure accurate tine-height control around the raking circumference.
