We had an old IH side delivery rake for years, and recently upgraded to a Gehl 418 4 wheel with the middle gatherer.
Night and day difference. Much gentler at handling the hay and rolling it over, instead of the side delivery whipping it into a rolled up wick. The 8 wheel model is the perfect size for the same cutting width you're working with. Hilly ground and sharp corners do not seem to affect it. Will pick up a little dust in the windrow if the dirt is really dry, but you could do worse with a side delivery.
Only downside is the size of the unit. It's about the same width as the side delivery, but it folds up and is quite tall.
But if we park it in the pasture behind the barn, the cows itch themselves on the rake instead of itching up against and ruining a good fence.
