2 rake hitchI made this 2-rake hitch to pull a pair of side-delivery rakes 2 years ago and it works well. Lets you fold the back rake in and out on the go and it tracks so well that when you turn around you don't leave a loop in the hay windrow.
It consists of an L-shaped tongue, made out of angle iron and tube steel, that pulls the rear rake and attaches to a hinged frame mounted on the back of the front rake. A single hydraulic cylinder moves the tongue in and out, shifting the rake from transport to field position. (Haden L. Grovom, Rt. 1, Box224, Park River, N.Dak. 58270 ph 701 284-6528)
