CLEAN ROTARY RAKING ACTION
Like a mechanical pitchfork, each tine arm uses flexible tines to lift and carry the crop to the windrow. Unlike ground-engaging rakes, ProRotor™ tines don’t need to touch the soil, so there is less risk of contaminants being swept into the windrow. The gentle rotary action builds a well-shaped windrow without roping, and promotes drying after the hay is raked.
A CHOICE OF MODELS
Three ProRotor models with working widths ranging from 13’9” to 25’7” are available to suit your raking needs. Choose the ProRotor 3114 single-rotor, side-delivery rake, the ProRotor 3223 dual-rotor, side-delivery rake or the ProRotor 3226 dual-rotor, center-delivery rake.
HIGH-LIFT TINE ACTION
ProRotor tine arms are different, and that difference provides more capacity and better performance than rakes with straight or radial-mounted tine arms. ProRotor tine arms are curved and mounted at a tangent so the tines are in optimum position to pick up and deliver hay to the windrow.
The sealed rotor gearbox is lubricated by oil and requires only periodic daily maintenance of the crown and pinion, saving you time and providing reliable service.
PROROTOR™ ROTARY RAKE GEARBOX
The heart of a rotary rake is the rotor gearbox, that’s why ProRotor rake rotors are sealed and lubricated by oil for reliable and dependable service life.
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
CURVED TANGENTIAL MOUNTED ARMS
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.
LONG FLEXIBLE RAKE TINES
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.
CLEAN AND PRECISE RAKING
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.
PROROTOR™ 3114 SIDE-DELIVERY RAKE
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.
