Kuhn Farm Machinery has added a new semi-mounted gyrorake to its range of hay and silage making equipment. With a 5.40 to 6.40 metre working width, the compact twin-rotor GA 6501 machine includes all of the main features from Kuhn’s range topping professional rakes, at a very attractive feature-to-price ratio.
The GA 6501 delivers a central windrow from two rotating rakes which have an adjustable working width of 5.40 to 6.40 metres. Both rotors are equipped with 10 tine arms, each fitted with three tines per arm.
The new machine uses a fully enclosed mechanical gearbox which requires a tractor with a minimum power output of 40hp. It sits on three super balloon wheels (16 x 6.50 – 8) for improved ground tracking and has folded transport dimensions of just 2.5 metres wide by 3.5 metres high, making it quick, easy and safe to move from one field to the next.
“High quality raking is only possible if the tines can follow undulating terrain in a smooth and controlled manner,” explains Duncan McLeish, UK Sales Manager for Kuhn Farm Machinery. “As with all Kuhn gyrorakes, the GA 6501 features a three-dimensional rotor articulation design which allows the raking units to closely follow ground contours without damaging the underlying grass stubble and without contaminating the crop with soil.”
An optional bogie axle further enhances the GA 6501’s ground following ability by aiding rotor guidance on the most difficult terrain where the machine’s overall design ensures that high raking speeds are still possible.
“The GA 6501 is perfect for grassland farmers who want a compact machine with a top-end specification,” Mr McLeish adds. “It enables high-quality forage to be raked quickly and effectively, producing perfect windrows even when working in crops of varying densities or when working to a certain pick-up width.”
