Grassland specialist Kuhn has introduced a fully mounted, twin rotor hay or silage rake – a first for the company – in a range of raking widths from 5.40 to 14.70m.

The GA 6501P centre-delivery Gyrorake offers variable working widths from 5.40 to 6.40m, and forms a windrow 1-2m wide by using 2.65m diameter rotors with ten tine arms, each fitted with three double tines.

The double curved tine arms work to deliver an airy, well-structured and regular row for following operations, allow high speeds and have height adjustment via a single crank mechanism.

Each rotor is mounted on pivoting, large diameter triple wheels assemblies for good ground following and combine with the Kuhn 3D articulation system for stability and clean raking in all terrains.

A pivoting headstock allows tight turns in small paddocks, and the integrated rotor lift hydraulics allow good swath clearance on headlands and fold the machine to 2.5m for transport.

Machines run at 540 rpm and require one double-acting hydraulic connection.

Standard-fit lighting and indicator clusters ensure safety on the road.
