2015 762c here. 2000+ acres a year plus some wet straw, nearly all of it with student drivers. Never really needed parts, but when we have (driver error) the backup is fantastic.Looking to buy a rake to row 2 10s into 1..have been looking at some rakes and would appreciate others views on a pottinger 612c or a krone tc640?
Yes funny i have heard the same alrite and yes you are right 612c isnt adjustable..but i can get a demo 612c in my local dealers for 11k a new 702 is 17k thats all i was thinking i only rake 140acres a year of my own grassDealer wasn't happy to sell me 612 as he said 702 was better built.
Also I think 612 is not adjustable width wise.
Yes, even on the 612 you can adjust it so the tines lift up earlier (later?) And we usually run around 450 rpm. I find raking to be one thing were speed isn't "better". Our little 4610 does majority of it.The cam track is adjustable on the Pottinger and reducing pto revs will widen the swath further.
It's total rubbish is it? Just my opinion and it was ok in heavy crops but not light ones.That's total rubbish. Neighbour has 612C and we bale about 300 round silage/haylage for him every year, not single issue with McHale round baler.
