Sounds like you buy expensive rake teeth or sell cheap hay.

Both. There aren't any Chinese teeth for my rake and hay prices here aren't like what you guys get. I'm on the very high end at 3.50-4$ per bale. Still lots selling at 2.25

Bison, could you explain your comment that you don't rake? And possible share a pic of pickup? It is a weather thing that allows you to bale without raking? Tnks.

Quoting Removed, click Modern View to see

I cut with a 14' feet haybine,the windrows it leaves are 5 1/2' wide and perfect for my 6' wide pickup baler.My hay is alfalfa/grass mix and straight meadow brome.

If it stays dry I can usually bale the alfalfa/grass up in 3 to 5 days right out of the swath, the meadow brome often on the second day after cutting.I am all by myself putting up 300 acre/year. I like it simple, i ain't looking for extra work.

All my neighbors use V wheel rakes and roll 2 or 3 swaths together. They can bale a day sooner than me but the extra cost and losses aren't worth it in my opinion.

When we get rain on it before baling the hay they have a 'ell of a time getting it dry whereas i go in with the combine pickup and just fluff it up in the morning and often go bale in the afternoon, i find it dries just as fast as with raking and i can do it more than once if need be. I never lost a hay crop yet even after repeated rain.Last year was a bad year for making hay, the quality was not that great but it was still decent hay.

The neighbors lost a couple fields though.

i don't think there's enough hay left in my fields to sustain a rabbit when i am done baling.

I don't use a rake but i do have a mega wide pickup(home build) on my 605 D Vermeer baler.

Some time a dust devil comes trough and scatters a bit hay but that does not amount to much.
