Centrifugal Force-Controlled Tines
The centrifugal force-controlled, horizontal tines self-adjust to field contours as they float through stubble to cleanly pick up crop, providing faster working speeds with little risk of contamination when tedding and raking.
Pivoting Headstock with Lock
The pivoting headstock unlocks while at work to closely follow the path of the tractor when turning, without damage to the windrow. When raised for transport, the headstock automatically centers and locks for added safety.
Central Swath Divider
A central Swath divider ensures that crop is evenly distributed between the rotors when tedding to provide the most uniform distribution of crop for rapid drying.
Twenty individually mounted, pivoting tines feature nylon bearings to provide reliable performance and operation that is practically maintenance-free. The tine height and rotor pitch angle are quickly optimized for both tedding and raking by adjusting wheel columns and the tractor’s top link to obtain the desired setting. Each rotor basket is equipped with both narrow and wide tines to obtain a wide working area for high-capacity operation and faster working speeds.
The HayBob 300 provides efficient tedding and quality center delivery raking. Adjustable swath boards produce neatly formed windrows and may be offset to form a double row in three passes. The crop deflectors can point centrally backwards forming a central windrow behind the tractor. When pivoting the crop deflectors to the right hand side of the Haybob a high volume windrow is produced in 3 passes.
