Wheel Rake

Frontier Equipment's WR1417 heavy-duty, high-capacity wheel rake gathers up to 30' of hay and is built in an offset “V” design that eliminates the need for center kicker wheels.

Its 17 raking wheels are 60” tall and have solid plastic panels to minimize hay climb and reduce losses from poor windrow formation. Each wheel has 36 durable teeth.
