raking hay

Postby LRAF » Sun May 22, 2011 2:16 pm

I used to hate to rake hay. But now I kinda enjoy it. Makes a difference when you have quality eqquipment that's for sure.

Nice jodywy. Nothing prettier than a field full of pretty wind rows. I like your choice in tractors also. ;-)

I don't know about jodywy? But I haven't found the need for the center kicker yet. If your hay is ready and your baler will pick it up your fine without it.

2 windrows into one makes better bales with my baler, usually the bottom still a touch green , and a couple hours after raking it just right
