The advances in hay and forage production equipment are centered on efficiency and John Deere’s WR31 series wheel rakes are designed to make life in the field just a little bit easier. The 2015 Farm Progress Show gave me the opportunity to talk with Frontier Product Specialist, Caitlin Carson, to learn about the WR31 Wheel Rake’s high capacity raking performance features.
“One of the features it has is the “Kwik Pik” wheel system. Which is a cylinder underneath the frame of the rake. This allows farmers to, when at the end of the row, lift all the wheel rakes at the same time. This will keep your windrows from messing up.”
Caitlin said another feature customers are excited about is the quick field adjustment capabilities. The series has three easy adjustment points to customize windrow width and gather more hay in each bale.
This rake is currently on the market and producers simply need to contact their local John Deere dealer to place an order in prep for their 2016 hay crop.[wpaudio url=”http://traffic.libsyn.com/zimmcomm/fps-15-jd-rakes-carson.mp3″ text=”Interview with Caitlin Carson, John Deere”]
