Lookin at getting a different rake. I am looking at a Hi capacity wheel rake and was wondering what everyone runs and what they think is one of the better ones. I have been lookin at a Vermeer or a KUhn. Thanks.

We have a Heston and like it. The only problem we have with it is that it doesn't do corners or turns well. It'll make some rippin big windows!

Wow. I need to show that to the guys here.
What do those run, pricewise, BMR?

The rake that was loaned to us is a Vermeer V-rake,
totally hydraulic. The guys :heart: it. I think we could
buy one for $18,000 from our local Vermeer dealer.

If I remember correctly a 14 wheel was just north of $20,000.

The used one I was looking at I chased to $14,000 but it was used kinda rough. :?

I am not sure I own a tractor big enough to pull those rakes. They are impressive. :D

I think you can hook them to a gooseneck hitch in your truck. :D

Not sure how many hydraulics needed but it did have it's own splitter with switches and solenoids.

:shock: I have to much trouble to put my baler that far away. :lol:

Out of sight, out of mind.
Although that is an awful lot to keep an eye on...

Broute, I owned a Vermeer Rebel wheel rake. I traded it for a Kuhn Speedrake. There's no comparison -the Kuhn is far better especially if you have any hilly hay ground. Love the Kuhn.

Nah---I'd of already tore up half the whirld with that lashup before it ever got a chance~~and if it's dry enuf to bale, it might be a tad dryer than I like to rake it---unless i drove REALLY slow, which might mitigate item 1..... :p

I saw a brochure for one of those in the sales barn.

I agree with Big Muddy rancher.

I've had enough success with Sitrex to say they're worth the money.

There used to be a ton of Vicon wheel rakes in the country, and then Vicon quit selling them. May have to get a Tonutti or a Rowse to replace one someday. A Rowse would be better than a Tonutti, I think.

We like our H & S Hi-Capacity 16 wheel rake. It has been used for several seasons with minimal problems to repair. It does go through quite a few teeth each summer, but they are not terribly expensive or hard to replace.

I looked at an H & S Hi-Capacity the other day when I was on a parts run. It had somethings I liked better than the Sitrex Magnum I've looked at. Most any of them are better than the Tonutti that I have but its not a hi-capacity either.
