Ronin.80 said: (quoted from post at 05:39:35 07/02/13) What is the perfect hay rake to match up with a case 800 series
tractor (54hp)?

Most people use a smaller tractor for raking, but if one tractor is all
you have, what then?


The answer to that question has more to do with the baler used than the tractor. You want a rake that produces windrows sized appropriately for the baler you will be using. Of course there are more efficient and less efficient ways to produce that proper sized windrow....but a gigantic rake in a small field does not work well either so that factors into the equation.

If one tractor is all you have then you simply gear up and throttle down and the fuel consumption will still be reasonable even if pulling a tiny rake. Raking is certainly light easy work with traditional small rakes, but you would never pay for another tractor on any fuel savings seen by using a smaller tractor for the chore.

Heck some people use their bigger tractors to rake with (even though they have smaller ones readily available) simply because their bigger tractors usually have cabs, AC, radio, etc.
