Vermeer's R2300 TwinRake increases raking efficiency and capacity, and produces custom-formed box-style windrows. Its raking widths are hydraulically adjusted — 18' to 23' — from the tractor. Windrow widths are also hydraulically adjustable, from 3' to 6'.
The rake has a rugged 4 × 6" steel mainframe, adjustable hitch, round cross-section toolbars, floating front reel spindles, heavy-duty, tubular formed-steel baskets, and a swivel-mount jack stand.

The rake has a hydraulic rotor drive, controlled by a self-contained hydraulic drive mounted on the pivoting headstock. The four rotors have 3-D suspension so they can pivot in all directions, and they rest on four-wheel undercarriages that closely follow ground contours.
