Raking has a decisive influence at the end of the harvest chain on how clean the forage remains. The tines must not contact the ground; instead they rake the forage carefully out of the sward.
TOP tines deliver millimetre precision
The tines are positioned straight at the ground directly under the tine arm, without any need for a steep offset angle. Due to the resistance of the forage, they are pressed back slightly but do not rise upwards under load therefore the tines produce exact raking results. These tines do not need to be set so deep as others to rake tidily. This means less stress on the cam track and cam rollers. Resulting in both the sward and forage are both treated with care. The long tines are drawn smoothly out of the swath for a perfect swath shape.
Easy height adjustment
The working height of TOP rakes can be adjusted from the standing position using a hand crank. This is easily accessible and maintenance-free. A height indicator makes it easy to ensure that both rotors are the same height on twin rotor rakes.
The outer pairs of tines are slightly shorter so that they do not contact the full volume of forage and the load is lower. The three inner pairs of tines are used for precision work.
Safe and sound
Featuring a shaped support disc, the tine mounting provides a secure connection.
Tine security system
The tine security system prevents tine loss in the swath. The safety tab is secured reliably over the outermost tine bolt.
Unbeatable tine arm profile
Extremely resistant to twisting and bending forces, which are dissipated along the edge sections. The linch pin is only a security measure. Easy to slot in, it is not possible to fit the wrong way. The inner tine pairs are also easy to install. All tine arms can be removed to save space when parked.
