looking at getting a Tedder for the first time,

It needs to cover 3x 10ft mower widths,

Currently looking at pottinger and krone, what are people experiences with these machines?

The 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!

@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 now(y)

kvernaland tarrup here very happy with it its the 7.6m one with 6 rotors 7 tines per rotor but it wont spread 3 3m rows right to the edge (you can see the gap every tedder width) <I do it if in a rush but normally only do 2.5 mower widths.

I would look at the 8.9m 8 rotor 6 tine/rotor if you want to do 3 3m widths

I have to admit, its probably 15 years since I read the instruction book, the tine holder centre bush has 3 angle settings, thought it was to adjust well used tines . Did you advance ,or retard the tip of the tine to improve the tedding? Thanks Forever Fent, we learn alot on this forum.

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.

The only problem is where do you buy a new lely from now since agco took them over, agco seem to be pushing the fella brand Tedders and rakes and there's no sign of the lely type, think they only bought them for the foragers and balers.

Five nature-recovery projects spanning nearly 100,000ha across the West Midlands, Cambridgeshire, the Peak District, Norfolk and Somerset have been announced by the government and Natural England today (Thursday, May 26).

This is the equivalent in size to all 219 current National Reserves.

The aim of the projects is to deliver nature recovery at a landscape scale, helping to tackle biodiversity loss, climate change and improve public health and well-being.

All five projects will make a significant contribution towards the national delivery of the international commitment to protect at least 30% of land and...
