Through innovative design McHale has delivered a high quality heavy duty range of rakes. McHale rakes have been tested in the world’s most difficult conditions, in order to deliver a strong and robust machine, which is efficient and reliable in all terrain.
The McHale R 68-78 twin-rotor centre delivery rake offers a number of different working widths from 6.8 to 7.8 metres. The variable working width is adjusted hydraulically from the tractor seat.
McHale rakes feature a simple and low maintenance steering system to master even the tightest of turns and give excellent road stability.
McHale rakes are equipped as standard with wide tyres to give excellent stability on the road and minimise compaction in the field.
The pivoting headstock of the McHale rake couples into the 2 point linkage arms. The rake is designed to deliver a tight turning movement and high work rates.
The drive power flows through a wide angle gearbox to the individual rotors.
Both rotors are fitted with a Tine Arm Cam Adjustment to allow the speed at which the crop is distributed to the row to be adjusted. The cam on the tine arms can be adjusted simply to cater for all working widths and crops.
Each rotor is fitted with a Centralised Grease Block to allow greasing to be carried out quickly and efficiently by the operator.
The R 68-78 is designed to deliver a tight turning movement and high output. The low-maintenance steering system is effective in even the tightest turns.Read More
Once at the field the crop deflector moves automatically into the working position as the rake is being folded down. McHale rakes are specifically designed to deliver a high headland or swath clearance.
The tines on each tine arm guarantee the cleanest sweep, delivering uncontaminated fodder into the aerated swath. The tine cam adjustment, allows the operator to adjust when the tines release the crop.
For transport, when the rotors are folded up, they move down into a locking position, which delivers a transport height under 4 meters. As a result, tine arms do not need to be removed for transport.Read More
The McHale R 68-78 is equipped as standard with 380/55 -17 wide tyres, which give excellent stability on the road, while minimising compaction in the field. The transport running gear is approved up to 40 km/ h.
