New Vermeer Carted Wheel Rake Expands Raking Capacity.


The new high-capacity Vermeer VR1224 Carted WheelRake is equipped with 12 rake wheels and features a clean, balanced, high-clearance frame and toolbar for greater raking versatility in a variety of conditions, even in high-volume raking.

This expands the already successful VR series rake lines to include three models - 8 wheel, 10 wheel and 12 wheel. Just like its previous models the Vermeer VR1224 is easy to operate with no tool adjustments.

Smart innovative design maximizes raking speed, convenience, reliability and versatility. An optional center splitter wheel attachment turns hay in the center of the swatch. Rake widths are easily adjustable and range from 20'/minimum (6.1 m) to 24' 5"/maximum (7.4 m) to accommodate different swaths or mower windrow widths. Quick “wrench-free” adjustments make it easy to change the raking widths as well as the windrow widths – from as narrow as 21" (53.3 cm) to as wide as 8' 2" (248.9 cm). A patented rubber torsion suspension requires no tools to adjust for light or heavy settings.

The telescoping toolbar provides excellent tire clearance in all rake width settings. The rugged 4" (10.2 cm) x 6" (15.2 cm) channel tongue comes with adjustable hitch heights.

The VR\1224 can also be easily switched to work as a single-sided rake – with left or right side configurations – for
turning windrows. Grease-able tapered roller bearings in both the rake wheels and transport tires extend operating life. Narrow width and flat folding rake wheels provide fast, easy transport.
