Just started baling my own hay this year and I am having problems learning how to back up my hay rake. It is a Dolly Wheel type New Holland and I want to park it under the lean-to on my barn...but have not had any luck thus far. It goes every direction EXCEPT for th way I want.
Can anyone help me out?

If you have to back it in you need to anticipate where the tongue is going to move and begin to steer the tractor to the next position before the tongue is where you want it. You can also use the right and left brakes on the tractor to push the tongue side to side and make sharp turns while backing but i try to avoid that way. It takes a lot of practice to back something like that or a wagon. We have dolly wheel rakes also and I can back them but not as good as i can a wagon because they are shorter so i usually just push em if i need to back them up.

There is a similar discussion being held on the JD forum.

Hope this helps.

They are almost impossible to back up. With the basket up and the rake disengages I usually push mine by hand if I need to move it around.

If your tractor has a front hitch the steer wheels will help a bunch trying to push it in. If you ever tied to back a wagon you'll know what I mean.

Yes I can help. Drive it up to lean to and unhook it and have the kids push it in by hand.
