    Do people who build these things realise the practicality of actually using them?? It can be bad enough getting something similar round on the back never mind on the front, its one of those things you can see working in your mind but in reality...............................For that reason i'm out!!!

    Would be fine on a large farm with no lanes to negotiate. Save a tractor and man

    It might well be, but very limited imo. How does it do corners, no steering on it was there?

    In a horrible wet year I could see it being a hit.
    Not needing to drive over the crop to rake it. (Except front wheel obviously!)

    Otherwise a pain! Ha.
    Designed for big fields in areas with few hedges.

    Anyone posting here ever run a Lely Hisbicus 915 CD Vario 30ft Rake? Anything to watch out for a Used Machine?

    Seems to be a good few Sip rakes sold around here but never heard if good or bad.
    Mo-co is good but same price as other makes which have known resale.

    On a serious note the build quality seems good .
    Biggest crown wheel and pinion on the market.
    Dealer was very easy deal with.
    I had that take on demo during the summer and was very happy with it.
