PROROTOR™ ROTARY RAKE GEARBOX
Practically maintenance free rotor gearboxes do not require daily greasing of the tine arm assemblies so you spend less time greasing and more time raking
ProRotor tine arms are mounted at a tangent, placing the tines in the optimum position for gathering hay.
The smooth cam action and specially formed tine arm curve lift the tines quickly as hay is deposited into the windrow, resulting in an even and consistent windrow.
To handle your heaviest crops, each tine arm is secured by a through bolt and clamping bolt for high reliability.
Individual raking tines are uniquely shaped to provide equal spacing, improving coverage to reduce missed crop.
With the capacity to handle the heaviest of crops, individual tines have three spring coils for flexibility to protect the stubble from inadvertent contact.
Each tine is securely bolted and coils wrap around the tine arm, for extra piece of mind optional tine saver clips are available.
The ProRotor 3114 follows ground contours closely and precisely, supported by four 18 x 8.5-8 flotation tires on oscillating tandem axles, so an accurate tine height is maintained in rolling terrain.
The rear rotor of the ProRotor 3223 articulates in all three dimensions to follow field contours independent of the front rotor. Each rotor hugs the ground and rakes more cleanly than similar models with fixed rotors. Articulating without complicated pivoting joints and hydraulic cylinders, the rear rotor is supported by four large 18 x 8.5-8 flotation tires on oscillating tandem axles with two additional guide wheels positioned in the front to guide the tines with precision in rolling terrain.
Supported by a tricycle undercarriage with four 16 x 6.5-8 flotation tires, the dual front wheels are positioned close to the tines to lead the rotor controlling tine height and caster precisely to prevent skidding during tight turns.
For challenging conditions such as pivot irrigation tracks and unexpected holes, the optional tandem axle kit provides an extra smooth ride allowing the rotors to follow the terrain closely.
A special “J-shaped” hitch pin secures the ProRotor3114 and ProRotor3223 rakes to the tractor. To reduce hay catching on the drawbar this special hitch pin is shorter and secured on the top.
A hydraulic cylinder controls the hitch angle keeping the rotors level as they are raised on headlands. The ram is threaded to provide a full range of adjustments for different drawbar heights.
Rotor adjustments are simple and easier than ever so you can rake clean every time. Rotor height adjustments can be made without tools and built-in side leveling adjustment ensures you're always set properly without rotor base shims or tire pressure adjustments.
For the traditional haymaker, the ProRotor 3114 rotary rake offers a large, 11 ft. diameter rotor, perfectly suited to today’s most common 9 and 10 foot mowers and mower-conditioners. The single-rotor design allows you to rake individual windrows, or double them up in two passes for the most efficient baling and harvesting possible. Drawbar trailed with a low power requirement hooks up quickly and works efficiently with tractors having as little as 20 PTO hp.
For frequent travel on narrow rural roads, tine arms remove quickly and store away in storage rack. The compact folding also means this rake stores easily, taking up less valuable shed space.
For larger acreage operations the dual-rotor, ProRotor 3223 doubles your productivity and has more versatility than single-rotor models. The tandem side-delivery design means you can “double up” swaths with every pass for more efficient harvesting. The single large windrow is ideal size for round balers, square balers, and pull-type forage harvesters. When you outfit a ProRotor 3223 with an additional front swath board it is possible to rake two individual windrows ideal for small square balers or to reduce windrow size in heavy crops.
The rear rotor atomicity trails the front a turning without the operator’s intervention plus the design is more easily steered around obstructions and when reversing compared to pivot tongue rake hitches. Rotors lift hydraulically with a single hydraulic outlet providing 19 inches of tine clearance when crossing windrows.
With twice the productivity of single-rotor models and a modest 50 PTO Horsepower requirement ProRotor 3223 rakes can save you time in the field as well fuel in the tank.
For frequent travel on narrow rural roads, tine arms remove quickly and store away in storage rack. The compact folding also means this rake stores way easily taking up less valuable shed space.
The ProRotor 3226 rotary rake features a dual-rotor, center-delivery design, and a large working width that is perfect for bringing together two swaths from your large mower-conditioner or self-propelled windrower head.
Raking up to 25 ft. 7 in. each pass, the ProRotor 3226 will make quick work of even your largest fields. The central chassis with rear-wheel steering allows this rake to follow your tractor precisely, forming long straight easy-to-bale windrows with gentle turns that are ideal for large square and round balers.
Large hydraulic cylinders lift the rotors easily on headlands and the 85° maximum turning angle allows for fast maneuvering.
Rotors are mounted on a pivot and rotor arms flex in three-dimensions allowing you to follow ground contours closely to rake even your rolling fields clean.
