Some fun poking out a gateway with that.
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
Horses for courses just not a lot of courses suitable for that horse.
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?
I see a few john deere dealers pushing Sip rakes is it across the board thing?
Likely is. John deere dealer here in co down is pushing them.
Wonder what the mowers are like.
Tedders look good id be slow on buying a rake
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.

Well wear lad . What swayed you towards the pottinger
Well wear @johndeere6920s
The free beer they gave us in Austria
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.
Is there alot of nipples for greasing?
Who is the dealer for pottinger
Anyone here running a Mchale Rake? Don’t see any around here, not pushing them atall? Class or Krone around these parts
Probably down to the fact that they hadn't one capable of putting 3 x 10ft's together.
Haven seen any around here yet mainly class /krone/ kv/potie/ an odd Lely an Massey. And 1sip very strong rake
Ah rite was aimed at the Baler men as opposed to harvester men, non local around here to even see, another guy said they not really retailing them yet, not working out the way they taught, only selling the odd one, see M&S in cashel sold one alrite
I'd be in M&S from time to time, never even saw one in the yard.
Only 1 iv seen sold this year
Was enquiring about rakes last week and was told to stay away . Not selling at all and giving enough trouble.
Mchale took a step back this year with rakes to iron out the kinks. Theyre a nice rake though with some nice features and have an excellent ability to clean the ground.
