Tidy work. The Fendt Former Hay Rake.
Do you expect nothing but the highest quality forage in your swath? Then you should definitely take a look at the innovative Fendt Former hay rakes. With an operating width of up to 14.5 m, they are experts in adding quality forage cleanly and precisely to the swath. Anytime and under all conditions.
The best of all worlds. Innovative technology for cleaner forage.
Whether its a single, two or four-rotor hay rake: All Fendt Formers are designed to make it easy to form your quality forage. Smart details like CamControl, SteerGuard or the Jet-Effect help you to keep the shape of your forage even on headlands, and the sturdy design ensures a long lifetime.
Every last stalk matters during the forage harvest.
All Fendt Former multi-rotor hay rakes have a fully cardanic rotor suspension. This gives them outstanding adjustability to the ground, both lengthwise and diagonally, with even forage which lies in wheel tracks or hollows being harvestable without being lost. As a result, the sward is also protected on uneven terrain.
Hay rake heads for maximum durability
Various rake heads are fitted according to the number of rotor arms. All are designed for stability and longevity. The maintenance-friendly TS3 and TS4 rake heads are bolted using taper rings to form a single sturdy unit, leading to perfect centring. The screws are not exposed to shear forces. The TS5 and TS6 rake heads are fitted with a maintenance-free bearing on the rotor arms. Ball bearings with large distances between are used. These provide the head with the ultimate in stability.
The tine arms of the Fendt Former rakes are arranged at tangents. This ensures top raking quality together with perfect swathes. The tine arms can be detached after removing a single cotter pin, and tine arm mounts can be replaced individually without disassembling the rake flange. To do this, only individual screws need to be loosened.
The drive consists of a single bevel gear with a divided bevel pinion shaft with twin bearings.
The tine arm carriers can be replaced individually without having to disassemble the rake flange.
Precision ground following
Simple, low-wear, but durable and above all, precise: this is the patented SteerGuard steering system. The stub axle steering uses adjustable track rod heads from the commercial vehicle sector. This ensures precise self-steering and excellent stability. In order to direct steering forces towards the rear, the steering shaft is located within the frame and protected against damage. It has just a few separation points and mounts and is therefore very low wear.
The best swath is the result of an optimised cam track. The cam track of the Fendt Former hay rakes is waveshaped and ideally protected against dirt and dust by the closed design. The hay rake can be adjusted to changes in harvesting conditions without the use of tools by simply re-positioning the cam shaft adjustment’s retaining rod in a hole template. Thanks to the special design, the rotors run very quietly and form perfect swathes, significantly enhancing the pick-up efficiency of the trailed machine.
Optimal forage quality thanks to Jet-Effect
The rotors’ pivot outside the centre of gravity ensures that they lift first at the front and then at the back. The process runs in reverse when lowering: The rotor touches the ground first and then at the front, which stops the tines from penetrating the ground. Tines as well as the sward are therefore protected and the forage is kept free of dirt and contaminants.
The Fendt Former Hay Rake 7850 und 7850 Pro deliver perfect results on a headland thanks to CamControl. CamControl is the hydraulic adjustment of cam tracks. In the headland setting, CamControl creates a ground clearance of more than 50 cm. The tines are precisely level at the deposit position height. The forage is not touched or damaged unnecessarily and the low centre of gravity of the hay rake is retained.
More ground clearance: Thanks to the CamControl hydraulic cam track adjustment, the lifting height of the tines can be increased to over 50 cm.
