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