GOLDEN EAGLE WHEEL RAKE
NUTS & BOLTS
Until now standard wheel rakes have been the most popular raking tool; however, they throw too much foreign material into the windrow with the product (ash, rocks & dirt). All of which are not good at all for the end users, Even if it does add weight to the product you are losing valuable quality. Manufacturers of competitor wheel rakes tell you to drive the wheels with the product and to keep the wheels off the ground. To do this you must set the wheels very light. This creates problems of bouncing wheels that bunch hay and leave an inconsistent windrow. The wheels also skip across the ground and do not turn consistently. To have a consistent windrow with a ground driven rake you must have constant contact with the ground. Power rakes have their place, however they tend to drag the product damaging it. To avoid the damage the farmer must rake the hay with more moisture. The windrow therefore will not stand up as tall for good aeration and takes longer to dry. With power rakes the raking window is much shorter.
Depth Band Technology
The Depth Band was designed to come as close to eliminating these problems as possible. With our wheel the idea is to put weight on the depth band for constant contact with the ground. This allows consistency in the turning of the wheel, which in turn gives you fluffier more consistent faster drying windrow. The rake teeth are in front of the depth band, adjusted up to clear the ground yet combing the stubble. This picks up the product quite well while not having a spring loaded tine penetrating the ground and flipping dirt and rocks into the windrow. The amount of weight put on the wheel is easily adjusted and determines how close the rake tines are to the ground. Floatation adjustment for the wheels is done at a single point on each side of the rake. There is also individual adjustment on each wheel. The tines are also adjustable. This makes our rake very adaptable to a wide variety of conditions and environments. Rough ground, smooth ground, wet ground, dry ground, short stubble, long stubble and even downed re-
