Magnum Hay Rakes
Models MKE14/60 - MKE20/60, High Capacity Pull Type V Rakes
The Sitrex Magnum Pull-Type Rake is the biggest model of the V-Rake Pull-Type line. Couplings of all various frame components are flexible to obtain the maximum adjustment of the machine on very rough and uneven grounds. Moreover: the drawbar and the opening system are mounted over the wheels, this allows to make a windrow without hindrances with the components of the machine. All rake wheels are spring-load lifted independently and this allows the machine to follow the ground contours. Tines are made of special steel with 7 mm 0 diameter. Tines pick up the hay making fluffy windrows very suitable for baling. A double hydraulic system, tractor driven, controls both the wheels lift and machine total or partial opening and closing. On the hydraulic cylinder, which controls the opening and closing of the machine, is mounted a locking valve to maintain the required working width. Even in case of pipe breaking the machine remains in the same position which has been set.
Our Magnum line hay rakes rake up the crop quickly and gently, enabling better drying of the hay and an excellent yield. They have rake wheels with a diameter of 55" (1.4 m), each wheel is equipped with 40 tines made of top quality spring steel. The tines are uniformly spaced and designed to collect all the product, forming a perfectly shaped swathe. The tines can be replaced individually, so as to waste as little time as possible.
The hay rakes of the Magnum range are designed in such a way that adjustments are simple to accomplish. A lever acting on a sprocket equipped with a locking mechanism enables the width of the swathe to be adjusted easily and rapidly from about 3' (0.91 m) to about 6' (1.8 m). The machine can also be equipped with an optional hydraulic device enabling adjustment of the swath directly from the tractor. Each rake wheel has its own spring enabling the correct pressure on the ground to be obtained separately, optimizing the quality and quantity of the crop. After this initial adjustment, all the subsequent adjustments are made on the whole wing of the hay rake thanks to a crank operating a shaft to which all the hay rake wheels are connected. This saves a lot of time. For transport, adjustable disk brakes stabilize each of the pivoting wheels, enabling the machine to proceed in the utmost safety with no shimmying during transport. The wide range of machines in the Magnum line covers working widths from about 21'4" (about 6.5 m) for the machines with 10 rake wheels up to about 31' (about 9.4 m) for those with 16 rake wheels.
Each rake wheel has an adjustment spring. When the spring is suitably stretched, it ensures that the pressure of the associated rake wheel against the ground is just right, for raking on any terrain. After this initial adjustment of the individual rake wheels, it is possible to make all the subsequent adjustments effective on the whole wing of the hay rake thanks to a crank, that operates a shaft, to which all the rake wheels are connected.
