I usually use a v rake on most of my fields.. sometimes combining two to one sometimes only using one side. Some of the fields I have mowed have been heavier then norm.. so question is.. why not drop the rake both sides but not all the way where the two combine to one row but rather stop short of that to where it would rake two rows close with a gap in the middle to where you could bale one side flip right around get the other side. Figured I could still do the two in one pass thing.. I dont know what it takes to make my v rake do this but want to give it a try and wondered if anyone has..

As Bison said my concern would be the wet grass still on the bottom of each windrow.

The wet grass isnt a concern..when I swath I use a pull version and I dont windrow it. I open it up all the way and let it fly.. so it lays out wider and thinner thus drys faster.. raking usually right before I bale. I plan to give this a try may end up being epic fail.. but one never learns till they try..

you mean to try and rake two single windrows in one pass??? I have a frontier v rake and I think it would go wide enough to do that, depends on how you rake is built

Well, go ahead and try, chances are the wet is still gonna be on bottom and the hay is packed tighter.

Most V-rakes can't be set wide enough to do what you propose.
