VR1428 High-Capacity Wheel Rake

The heavy-duty VR1428 high-capacity wheel rake is capable of raking 28' (8.5 m) wide in one pass – yet nimble enough to maneuver like rakes much smaller in size. It offers producers more capacity and the ability to handle more acres in less time, with fewer maintenance issues by combining rugged construction, smart, streamlined design and functionality with simple, tool-free adjustments.

Features and benefits

  • With a lift/suspension cylinder on each wheel and the nitrogen-charged accumulator, changing rake wheel settings  and pressure is easy! Simply change the pressure settings on the accumulator.
  • Heavy-duty construction throughout – non-telescoping, non-bolted joint straight tongue, as well as bent tube frame and fold arms.
  • Handles like many smaller capacity rakes because it’s closely positioned to the tractor when operating in the rake position.
  • Optional center splitter attachment. Exclusive dual rake wheel combination gently lifts and turns the crop in the center of the swath.
  • See your Vermeer dealer for comprehensive service and genuine Vermeer replacement parts.
