Picture this: 5x7 rear mount cultivator frame tube, just wider than the pickup, using 3ph mtg. Ran 4 inch channel irons back on each side of cult tube, to behind pickup, with a channel crossbar attached to channel irons, forming a rectangle frame. Center of crossbar, pipe/shaft pivot with shaft mounted on a crossbar above the pickup. Windrow passes under this crossbar. Front of pickup was lifted by chains attached to pipe lying on side channels- that"s the crude part.... nothing fancy but it worked. Didn"t have time for fancy.

Hyd cyl rotates shaft to get side to side action of pickup. Hyd motor attaches to upper roller on pickup, variable speed thru SCV. Set speed faster than ground travel to pull windrow apart to fluff it. I had 40 acres wet barley, cut with swather, so pivoted unit at each end of field to maintain original swath pattern and width for combine.

BTW- somewhere in archives there should be a picture of it- taken before I cut it up and made the mounted sprayer using the cult frame.

Quoting Removed, click Modern View to seeThanks, i think i get it.

You pivoted the pickup so it picked the swath up under an angle?

this is the one I build. I was also in a hurry.

Had i had more time i would have incorporated a pair of hydr cylinders and fulcrums to lift the pickup clear of the swath when crossing the outside rounds and to change the angle of the pickup for more aggressive lifting in heavier swaths.

Seeing that a good working swath inverter don't exist i might modify the bottom half of an old Vermeer 605C baler i have.

Widen the whole thing to 8 feet,incl pickup and put a 1/2 turn shute behind it

Yes, pickup pivoted left and right, and was fully mounted, so I could lift and turn without engaging end rows. Swaths were 13-14 apart, and when dropped back on the field, were the same......combine header was 13 feet, and needed uniform clearance across the field, so I pivoted the fluffer at each end of the field. Fluffer always ran at an angle, laying the windrow on new ground.
