Bit like tommytwofendts, your only big in the game with 3 now.
Talked with a man who had a 6 spinner here last summer,he’s got rid of it,think he was possibly the 1st in the country to get one.
Was one if not 2 down south working couple summers ago,prototypes I guess but one was working in massive fields most of the time
Have you/ did you look at a merger instead of a rake?
How do these mergers keep infront of 600hp? Seems slow and narrow. Great idea tho
Start a bit before the chopper, suppose to be able to work at faster forward speeds than a rake. 9.5m Kuhn can make a 20m swath if used 2 passes into 1.
In your picture what jf is that?
You ever thought how many pickup times are in those merger rakes? The thought of keeping replacing those would be an instant NO and that's before how heavy those things are. Designed for Alfa Alfa and that's about it.
1355 with the drum of a 1360.
No. The rake is just dandy as we only rake just in front of the chopper to max drying time and then look for a "square" swath. From the evidence of yesterday's first outing, I would say that a 4 rotor does a better job of swathing and presenting to the chopper than a 2 row.
The same chap with the 6 spinner has a merger,he only rates it in dry grass,it just knots it otherwise.
There's nothing worse than a rope.
Forage wagons don’t mind rope,it cuts better.
Disagree. Mine didn't, but then it was lumpy and uneven too.
Our local contractors have gone to 4 rotor now for first year .Now they have a Claas they need it to slow everything down!
Time for a kick about then!
How have you got on with it? How old
Good weather after today Mr F. Give them a call before Wyn attaches his kit
I would thought it would be like a swath off of a grouper which are smooth to chop. We are looking at them because of stones as we are mostly 2 year leys on mostly light stoney ground.
Had it 9-10 years. Likes power and a clean even swath, hence asking about mergers. Some pre-emptive tlc goes along way to reducing down time.
