Are you meaning a Wheel rake??? Some of the narrow ones would be that cheap new. They do OK if you have one that follows the ground fairly well. They need to be set correctly or you will tear up your hay stand and wear the rake wheels out. Post us a picture of the one you are looking at.

It is a wheel type rake. It has been on the dealer lot for a while and is faded but never used. I forget the brand name seems like it started with the letter B. It is 3 pt hitch and the salesman said it is adjusted by 3 pt to barely touch ground. my land is pretty flat. Than you all again for the response

How many wheels? I have a 5 wheel no-name for a backup I got 6 or so years ago. Was under $500 back then new.

I am glad I have it as a backup and it has its place, like it for reaching down over the rough water ditch bank.

But it doesn't do corners at all.

It doesn't do well on windy days.

It doesn't like my heavy swamp grass hay. Or merging fluffy straw windrows. Just not enough clearance below the axles.

Good high dollar vee rakes on wheels with the wheel axle on the back side are good as the pivot at a better place and have double the clearance; these cheaper 3pt models are - cheaper and it shows.

I'm glad I have mine and use it, but sure would not want it to be my only rake. The old nh 55 is a much better all around rake for any condition.

Paul
