TE490 Tedder

The giant TE490 Tedder covers up to 49' (14.9 m) in one pass. It’s simply the largest, most efficient way to ted your crops for maximum forage quality. The hook tine design gives you better grip of the crop, allowing you to decrease RPMs, minimize loss and disperse the crop thoroughly and more evenly – without contaminating the crop or prematurely damaging the tines.

Features and benefits

  • Special coiled hook-style tines produce “bottoms-up” tedding action for more consistent dry-down and longer tine life. All TE Series models come with a 3-year limited hook tine warranty.
  • Rugged double frame construction and radial pin clutches offer more stability and better protection.
  • Curved wheel supports and an anti-wrap plate combine to prevent downed crop material from wrapping around wheels.
  • Adjust rotor heights and customize tedding action to various crops and conditions without using any tools.
  • Go from transport to operating position in less than 45 seconds! No monitor is needed – just two remotes to fold and unfold the tedder.
  • See your Vermeer dealer for comprehensive service and genuine Vermeer replacement parts.
