Take stock on silage

HAYMAKING and silage time may be some months away but now is perhaps the time to take stock of the equipment required.

Heading up this years launches is Kuhn Farm Machinery with the introduction of a new twin rotor rake designed to create a single swath from 10.2m (34ft) of cut grass in two passes.

The trailed GA 6000, which runs on four wheels, has been constructed with one rotor behind the other – an arrangement claimed to offer the advantage of infinitely adjustable working width up to a maximum of 5.8m (19ft). Rotor positions are adjusted hydraulically from the tractor cab. Price of the GA 6000 is £9090.
