@john432 My one was crap as i thought ,it left it in rows what ever you did,Until i changed the tine angles on the tine holders, its a different machine nowThe only settings to change on a Krone is the height of the wheels, which in turn alters the angle of the rotors to the grass? God knows weve tried! Maybe the KW 6.70 is a bad model.? Main difference is the length of the rotor arms, the 6.70 ones are short! Borrowing a kverneland tarrup tedder, what a differance, and superior build!
We have run a Lely tedder for 6 years, although a 10m one. We've had it alongside Fella, Krone, Pottinger and Claas and the Lely is by far the cleanest tedder due to the hooked tines. It picks up damp run on grass without having to dig the tines into the ground.
The only downside to our Lely is the largeish rotors - when just about dry its hard to leave an even mat of crop, but it's no big problem. as most tedding passes are done before the crop gets to this stage, which is when the Lely really comes into it's own.
