As title any one running one had an issue with it stripping the main rotor gears, and it’s not down to operators as our other rakes are fine
Thanks

No expert but I know a lot of people that had them when they first came out and they all said they had major problems, 3000/3500/3600 faultless but the 4000’s were just under to much strain from each rotor trying to pull the grass around from so far away 🤷🏻‍♂️ Is it one of the first ones or a new one?
 
Liner 4000 runs the same rotor diameter as a 2900. If it’s the front rotors then it’s less likely to be a machine fault. If it’s the rear ones then it’s more likely to be crop throughput etc.
Worth a look anyway.

it often seems to be the front rotor they does the outside of the paddock that craps out first.

Yes I’d agree if it was just the right as you sit in the tractor front but they’ve both gone twice, we don’t use it in real heavy crops we use the other smaller rakes, As @Speedstar says he heard it’s from running too much pressure on them which would make sense but you have to run them so they collect all the grass obv so if that’s what is causing it then it’s clearly a major weakness in the machine as the others don’t do it and it’s not like your trying to rotorvate with it, we are thinking it’s a bloody Friday afternoon machine 😥
