Vermeer Unveils New, Innovative VR-Series Carted Rake Wheel

The new Vermeer VR-Series Wheel Rake features a clean, balanced, high-clearance frame and toolbar for high-volume raking, and is available in 8- and 10-wheel sizes with maximum raking widths of 20’(6.096m) and 22’-7” (6.1778m), respectively.

The VR-Series uses smart innovative design to maximize speed, convenience and reliability, even in tough haying conditions. The telescoping toolbar provides excellent tire clearance in all rake width settings. Quick “wrench-free” adjustments make it easy to change rake widths and windrow widths 2’(.0696m) - 7’ (2.1336m). A new, patented rubber torsion suspension requires no tools to adjust for variable ground pressure. The rugged 4’’(.1016m) x 6”(.1524 m) channel tongue comes with adjustable hitch heights. And to extend operating life, grease-able tapered roller bearings are used in the rake wheels.

Positive, single-side rake configurations make it possible to turn windrows with either the left or right side. A splitter wheel option allows it to turn the center swath. Narrow width and flat folding rake wheels provide fast, easy transport.
