    I was looking at the pickup of a wagon not so long ago there's a small roller behind the tines it was dark when I saw it.
    Anyone have any pictures of it and how it's held in and driven? Thanks

    You mean the CFS rotor to spread the crop out

    Yes I'd say it improves the intake the lad with them reckoned they would pick up any grass

    Ya have a cfs 3601 here, I've never had any trouble picking any type of grass. There's a few videos on YouTube. It's a camless pickup, gearbox driven rotor.

    What drives the CFS roller and is the roller helping the crop go into the rotor

    It's driven off a chain from the pickup reel and that the only chain on the front, everything else is gearbox and shaft.. I would say it does help. I'd rarely get a blockage and never have any trouble with grass sitting between pickup and rotor because it can't.
