Rotary Rakes

Leading the rotary revolution with CAM action rakes

CAM ACTION tine arms gently lift the crop, carry it to the windrow and release it…saving more leaves and forming a faster drying, fluffier windrow.  Gentle sweeping action allows for faster travel speed and higher raking capacity. Tines handle the crop only once, moving it to the swath in a sweeping motion.

Hydraulic height adjustment
hydraulic height adjustmentEnjoy the convenience and superior raking performance of being able to adjust raking height on the go, and setting transport position without leaving the tractor. Extra heavy hydraulic components assure long life.
High strength construction
high strength constructionBuilt heavier than the imports, with up to 60% more steel. Rugged, totally engineered design assures long life.
Adjustable swath curtain
adjustable swath curtainThe swath curtain is made from heavy duty belting, more durable than other designs, and bolted in place. Swath curtains adjust in and out as well as up and down on all models, plus fore and aft on 1150, 1350 and 2250 models.
Fully enclosed gearbox
fully enclosed gearboxGears run in grease and cams in oil (1350 runs in grease). Components are protected from damage by dirt and field chaff. Gearbox is protected by an overload clutch on PTO shaft.
Tandem axles, flotation tires, heat treated tines
tandem axles, floatation tires and heat treated tinesTandem axles (optional on model 900) with large flotation tires provide a smooth ride over rough field conditions. High strength tubular box steel tine arms (removable for storage) hold heat-treated, double-tooth spring steel tines. Models 1150 and 2250 use 2 side by side spiral pins on each tine arm to hold tine arms to the cam shafts.

Model 1150 – a higher level of performance

Art’s Way continues to lead the rotary rake revolution with a new generation of design. Additional features provide greater control and operating efficiency along with an even higher level of raking performance with an impressive 11 ft. wide raking width and 14 ft. wide working width.

Height adjustment

Dual front and rear cylinders lift the rake evenly for infinite fine tuning, or raise completely for additional clearance over windrows and waterways. Both cylinders have screw stops for ease of depth control. Full lift height provides 17 inch tine clearance. Screw style jack has convenient “out of the way” storage location.

New generation gearbox
  • Cam adjust lever moves to multiple positions to fine tune the discharge point of the crop.
  • Adjustable cam for fine tuning cam action
  • Heat treated nodular iron cam
  • Wide cam track and rollers
  • Large diameter tine arm shafts (1045 heat treated material)
  • Sealed oil bath housing
  • Large greaseable ring gear and pinion (9.7 to 1 gear ratio)
  • Massive center shaft
  • Reinforced gearbox casting and mount
  • Overall transport width 11 ft. 9 in.
Lower frame and axle pivot
  • Structural steel tubing frame for superior lower frame rigidity
  • Clevis style axle mount hinge with large 1-1/4″ greaseable pivot pins
  • “Scissor style” lift links use large 1-1/4 greaseable pivot pins on lower, center and upper pivots
Lights, markings, SMV sign
  • Amber lights, visible fore and aft; red lights, visible from rear
  • SMV sign standard
  • Reflective decals indicate overall rake width for safer transport

Model 1350 – wide raking abilities

Art’s Way offers a large diameter single rotor rake to follow big mower conditioners through the field. With an impressive 12-1/2 foot rotor diameter and a raking width up to 15-1/2 feet, this rake can easily handle large volumes of hay. Folds to a width of just 8 ft. 3 in. for easy transport and convenient storage.

Both cylinders have screw stops for ease of depth control. Full lift height provides 17 inch tine clearance. Screw style jack has convenient “out of the way” storage location.

Modular gearbox design

The 13 arm gearbox is a sealed modular design that is built in sections. This strong design gives the 13 arm 12-1/2 foot rotor ample support to handle the rigors of high volume raking. Cam adjust lever moves to multiple positions to fine tune the discharge point of the crop.

  • Adjustable cam for fine tuning cam action
  • Heat treated nodular iron cam Wide cam track and rollers (grease lubricated)
  • Ball bearing cam followers
  • Large diameter tine arm shafts (1045 heat treated material)
  • Large greaseable ring gear and pinion (9.7 to 1 gear ratio)
  • Massive center shaft Folds to require a minimum of storage space
Lower frame and axle pivot
  • Structural steel tubing frame for superior lower frame rigidity
  • Clevis style axle mount hinge with large 1-1/4″ greaseable pivot pins
  • “Scissor style” lift links use large 1-1/4 greaseable pivot pins on lower, center and upper pivots

  • SMV sign standard
  • Reflective decals indicate overall rake width for safer transport

Overall transport width 8 ft. 3 in.

Model 2250 and 2650 – double the performance

Easy hookup, convenient hydraulics plus simple adjustment for height and windrow placement
Speed productivity and reduce your harvest time.

Combines two hydraulically driven model 1150 or 1350 rakes with a steerable heavy duty swing frame that doubles as a rake positioner and hydraulic oil cooler/reservoir.

Easy setup and adjustments.

On-the-go remote hydraulics lifts rakes and sets raking height. Both rakes are controlled together by one remote at the tractor. Swing frame position is set by a second hydraulic remote which controls a rear steering cylinder. An adjustable hitch for the rear rake allows additional rake positioning, and a transport lock keeps the assembly directly behind the towing tractor.

Efficient hydraulics.

The swing frame features a self contained PTO driven hydraulic system which equally powers the high torque rake motors. Speed of the tractor PTO controls speed of rotors. Quick disconnects allow for easy unhooking, so individual rakes can be used independently.
