Features & Benefits

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.

Consistent downforce

Consistent downforce on rake wheels through the entire range of motion for improved tooth life and crop pickup with less dirt content in the windrow than a traditional spring-loaded wheel rake.

Easily adjustable rake wheel settings and pressure

Dual-purpose lift and suspension cylinder on each rake wheel coupled with a nitrogen-charged accumulator for easily changing rake wheel settings and pressure.

One-piece rake arms

Unique rake design featuring one-piece rake arms – in conjunction with hydraulic suspension on each rake wheel – provides superior rake flexibility with less maintenance than similar-sized rakes that require a pivot joint and additional caster wheel in the middle of the rake arm.

Wide range of motion

Superior vertical rake arm travel and ground contour following with the ability to flex 40 in (101.6 cm) down or 66 in (167.6 cm) up, equating to a range of motion of over 8 ft (2.4 m).

The right hay rake for the job

Though it’s a simple, low-cost implement on most operations, the hay rake can have a big influence on your forage crop, its value and overall quality. It’s important to select and operate the right type of rake for both the crop you produce and the environment in which it’s raised.

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.
