PROROTOR™ ROTARY RAKE GEARBOX
The heart of a rotary rake is the rotor gearbox, that’s why ProRotor rake rotors are sealed and lubricated by oil for reliable and dependable service life.
Practically maintenance free rotor gearboxes do not require daily greasing of the tine arm assemblies so you spend less time greasing and more time raking
CURVED TANGENTIAL MOUNTED ARMS
ProRotor tine arms are mounted at a tangent placing the tines are in the optimum position gather your hay.
The smooth cam action and specially formed tine arm curve lift the tines quickly as hay is deposited into the windrow, resulting in an even and consistent windrow.
To handle your heaviest crops each tine arm is secured by a through bolt and clamping bolt for high-reliability.
LONG FLEXIBLE RAKE TINES
Individual raking tines are uniquely shaped to provide more equal tine spacing improving coverage to reduce missed crop.
With the capacity to handle the heaviest of crops individual tines have three spring coils for flexibility to protect the stubble from inadvertent contact.
Each tine is securely bolted and coils wrap around the tine arm, for extra piece of mind optional tine saver clips are available.
CLEAN AND PRECISE RAKING
The ProRotor 3114 follows ground contours closely and precisely, supported by four 18 x 8.5-8 flotation tires on oscillating tandem axles, so an accurate tine height is maintained in rolling terrain.
The rear rotor of the ProRotor 3223 articulates in all three dimensions to follow field contours independent of the front rotor. Each rotor hugs the ground and raking more cleanly than similar rakes with fixed rotors. Articulating without complicated pivoting joints and hydraulic cylinders, the rear rotor is supported by four large 18 x 8.5-8 flotation tires on oscillating tandem axles with two additional guide wheels positioned in the front to guide the tines with precision in rolling terrain.
Supported by a tricycle undercarriage with four 16 x 6.5-8 flotation tires, the dual front wheels are positioned close to the tines to lead the rotor controlling tine height precisely and caster to prevent skidding during a tight turns.
For more especially challenging conditions such as pivot irrigation tracks and unexpected holes the optional tandem axle kit provides an extra smooth ride allowing the rotors to follow the terrain closely.
Drawbar trailed a special “J-shaped” hitch pin secures the ProRotor3114 and ProRotor3223 rakes to the tractor. To reduce hay catching on the drawbar this special hitch pin is shorter and secured on the top.
A hydraulic cylinder controls the hitch angle keeping the rotors level as they are raised on headlands. The ram is threaded to provide full range of adjustment for different drawbar heights.
Rotor adjustments are simple and easier than ever so you can rake clean every time. Rotor height adjustments can be made without tools and built in side leveling adjustment ensures your always set properly without rotor base shims or tire pressure adjustments.
PROROTOR™ 3114 SIDE-DELIVERY RAKE
For the traditional haymaker, the ProRotor 3114 rotary rake offers a large, 11 ft. diameter rotor, perfectly suited to today’s most common nine and ten foot mowers and mower-conditioners. The single-rotor design allows you to rake individual windrows, or double them up in two passes for the most efficient baling and harvesting possible. Drawbar trailed with a low power requirement hooks up quickly and works efficiently with tractors having as little as 20 PTO hp.
For frequent travel on narrow rural roads, tine arms remove quickly and store away in storage rack. The compact folding also means this rake stores way easily taking up less valuable shed space.
