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 side delivery of the HayBob 360 forms a windrow on the left-hand side of the machine. This allows the potential to accumulate crop over a wider width, forming a windrow that suits the baler, forage harvester or loader wagon. Windrow width is set by use of a crop curtain. To ensure that the crop is equally divided between both rotors, a crop divider is fitted. Depending on the crop conditions, the spreading pattern can be altered by changing the height of the adjustable wheels. The side-delivery design produces uniform windrows and the ability to merge swaths in two passes.
