The heavy-duty VR1428 high-capacity wheel rake is capable of raking 28 ft (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 & Benefits

Easily adjustable rake wheel settings and pressure

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

Heavy-duty construction throughout – non-telescoping, non-bolted joint straight tongue, as well as bent tube frame and fold arms.

Closely positioned to tractor

Handles like many smaller-capacity rakes because it’s closely positioned to the tractor when operating in the rake position.

Optional center splitter attachment

Adopted from the Vermeer VR-Series carted wheel rakes, the highly popular, optional center splitter attachment provides an exclusive dual rake wheel configuration that gently sweeps and turns the crop in the center of the swath.

The right hay rake for the job

The right hay rake for the job

Why Jerry Kuhbacher switched to the Vermeer 2800 twin rake

Jerry Kuhbacher and his two sons own roughly 11,000 acres (4451.5 ha) of land in the northeast corner of Wyoming. With all that land to cover, the Kuhbachers decided a few years back to move from a 16-ft (4.9-m) cut to 18-ft (5.5-m) swaths. It was then that they took a look at the Vermeer R2800.

Twin basket rakes: a case study for quality and baleage

Just about every hay producer uses a rake, and for a common purpose: to windrow hay for more efficient baling and to maximize overall per-acre output. If you’ve had the same rake for years, and it continues to get the job done, you may ask yourself why you should see what else is available.
