The hay rake is a fantastic tool for rowing-up meadow grass and wildflowers, especially after using the scythe and saves huge amounts of time over hand raking.
Manufactured by Molon Giovanni s.n.c., the hay rake is available in two widths, 100cm (40”) and 120cm (47cm) and with two steering options – a steering arm or front castor wheels.
The hay rake works by sweeping the grass into rows. It has a belt fitted with either 7 or 8 sets of 4-tooth combs (depending on the size) which sweep the grass up and over and into rows. The width and position of the rows is controlled by the adjustable arm located at the side of the hay rake.
It’s a very efficient method of not only rowing-up but also turning over cut material to prevent it from rotting and enabling it to dry.
The steering option is dependent on the power unit; for the Two Wheel Tractors the steering arm is the best option, and for the Commander power units we recommend the castor wheels option.
