I’ve got one, tines are the same as lely nice machine just the lely painted a different colour with some bracing on the frame. Got mine on a good offer as dealers have to take them with their stocking schemes so they generally want rid, the smaller ones are fella 512 etc but god knows how many of them are floating around still running. Assume you mean the hook tine machine?

As said Lotus are 6, 8 and 10 rotor rakes build by lely. Twister range is build by Fella. Agco basicaly bought Lely just because of the balers and forage wagons, but the Lely tedders were so good they didnt ditch them.

They did ditch them. But they changed their minds after a few years,I guess mchale doing a hooktine might have something to do with it.
 

Rejuvenating swards: Which option is best?

Written by Brian McDonnell

Maintaining grass quality during mid-season grazing is important. Farmers can maintain quality by entering ideal grazing covers of 1,300 – 1,500kg DM/ha, and grazing down to a residual of 4cm every rotation.

If you are now in a situation where cows are not cleaning out paddocks as well as they should be, leading to the development of steamy grass within the sward, here are some options.

Common options for rejuvenating swards include:

  1. Take a silage cut, probably into bales, remove the material and start again with the aftermath...
