Field of raked hay. After two to three days of drying, the mowed hay is raked into a double windrow, meaning two are merged into one, resulting in less time baling. The hay continues to dry as the hay which was underneath is now exposed to the air and sunshine.
The picture below is of our wheel rake. Each arm of wheels moves up and down hydraulically. When the wheels are down, they turn along the ground moving the hay into the center.
