Pull cart puts V rake on wheels
"My cart lets you pull your V-rake with a smaller tractor that doesn't have a 3-pt. hitch. The wheels allow the rake to more closely follow the ground contour and they eliminate fishtailing around corners, leaving nice round windrows that are easy for the baler or chopper to follow. The wheels reduce wear and tear on the rake by keeping it from gouging into the ground. And during winter storage they keep the rake off the ground."
The cart's frame consists of a 4-in. dia. tongue extending to a hinged axle, with two arms extending from there to the wheels. A hydraulic cylinder mounted on the tongue pushes the axle upward to lift the rake for transport.
Sells for $700 to $750.
