I can’t get the video to pull up on my crappy internet but is it the flex rake? I called and talked to them about one but cant make the numbers work yet. Hopefully I can in a year or two.

How does the PTO set-up on those things work and what is the approximate cost?

Pto runs through the long hitch part. I dont know what we paid for it, it was more than a regular rake. We ordered it the first of the year, i think the price is way higher now. Yes, its a flex rake, we got it because we got all the solar farm land to bale. We have a hydraulic rake i used, but decided if we could do this hay with just 2 tractors it would be better money wise . It took my job so now i'm free to shred our place, i pull a 20 ft shredder now.

Looks like the rig a friend of mine built. The drive shaft that goes through the tube had a bearing go out that he couldn't see and burned the whole rig down. Worked great for several years until that happened. Bearings go out all the time and burn balers up the rake just complicated things a bit when it happened. Nice video!!
