The rake is a 10 wheel carted V-rake right? First, you need to get one with a center kicker wheel. Good points- you can cover some acres fast with this rake depending on circumstances. Low maintenance. Not terribly expensive, in fact one of the cheaper options out there for as much acres as they can cover. Bad points- not good if you have irregular shaped fields. Tractor needs dual remotes. Makes a windrow better than a basket rake, but worse than a rotary rake. Biggest bad point is it can be a big pain in the rear in heavy 1st cut hay as the hay may ‘ball up” as it is exiting the rake.

I have one of those, I think, anyway it is a Vermeer 10 wheel v rake. It covers ground fast. It dows not like to make short turns, the windrows in the turns will be misshapen. I do use dual remotes. my main complaint is that when I have it adjusted to make decent windrows and raise the rake with the hydraulics, the rear wheels drag the ground which is not good if you are changing fields along a paved road. I don't think the 8 wheels have that problem. Be careful when turning near trees or posts, you can hang the rake on them.

Amusing story on the rakes: Cousin has an 8 wheel and needed an extra wheel for parts. Both of us were at a dealers and he spotted a wheel laying on the ground outside the shop. Dealer is a wheeler dealer and dosen't like to miss a sale, so he made my cousin a good $20 price on the used wheel. I hadn't gone there expecting to get a wheel, but I could have used one. After cousin and dealer finished the deal and money changed hands, i noticed a as new wheel leaning against the building, in plain view, cousin hadn't seen it. I asked the dealer about the good wheel, and he sold it to me for $25. The look on cousin's face was priceless, if he had noticed he would have bought both of them.

Quoting Removed, click Modern View to see

The rear rake wheels dragging when folded in air is a common problem on a butterfly(fold together in air) rake but not on my bi-fold as rake wheels all raise to same height on my rake.
