The 966 is sitting 12 miles away, roads flooded . So have to use the siclkle mower,and side delivery instead of the MOCO. Knocked the alfalfa down Mon afternoon, need to rake early tomorrow morning. What's the best setup for that 5 bar rake. Dead level or slightly higher on the output side? Where should the rake angle be set? Do you want the rake tilted forward, ot dead striaght up and down? Why is that adjustment there? Heavier material vs light grass? So which way would you go for heavy and which way for light. I have the op manual but it doesn't discuss this. Reatored SMTA is coming off the concrete floor in the shop for the second time. It's going to get pressed into service ahead of the NH275. BTW I put an ad in the SD craig'slist for orders for small squares to be picked up Sat. Sold it all to three different buyers, in one day. If they all come at once I'll get a group photo of the world's largest hay crew, LOL.

If you tilt the front down it will make smaller tighter windrows, if you tilt it up it will make bigger fluffier windrows that dry faster. A 15/16 rake though, doesn't move as fast as it should so the windrows get bunched. If you drive fast, it works better, if you can stay on the seat. At least that was my experience with one.

It`s been a LONG time(25 years) since I raked hay with our IH #15 5 bar side rake. If memory serves me correctly, I think I always tried to adjust the basket to be as level as possible and teeth as near to the ground as you can without them hitting the ground . If they hit the ground too much ,you`ll end up breaking some teeth.

Yeah. I used this rake about 7 years ago. Right after I bought it. Dragged it up and down the driveway, setting the height. Then went out to the field and promtly knocked off about 25 teeth. Old rotted rubber. Once I replaced them I lose about one every 25 acres. Even the made in Korea versions.
