SUPERIOR BASKET FLOTATION
Responsive flotation is where the Rolabar 230 excels, resulting in cleaner raking and less hay left behind. Since the rake baskets react quickly to varying ground conditions, you put more tonnage in the windrow. Flotation can easily be engaged by pressing a button on the control box. With flotation engaged, the basket raise/lower cylinders can extend and retract as the rake goes over uneven terrain. Unlike some competitive models with baskets that are locked in place, the Rolabar 230 rake baskets float up and over obstacles and uneven ground to rake cleanly and maximize rake tine life. Rake baskets are suspended by adjustable flotation springs to reduce the weight of the baskets on the ground.
