Hay-making is a precision task as farmers seek to make the best possible feed with every cutting. Krone has long marketing its Lift Tines as part of its twin-rotor rake models. Beginning next year, the Lift Tines will be featured in the Swadro single-rotor rake. The tines feature new angled ends that allow them to lift material while raking, creating what the company calls the Krone Lift Effect.

The special design boosts harvested forage quality, according to the company, because the Lift Tines don't drag on the ground and pick up other field material. And the company says the shape of the tines improve the shape of the windrow for higher work rates and reduced crop contamination.


Krone offers single-rotor rakes in working widths of 12-feet, 5-inches to 15-feet wide. Those single-rotor models also include other tech including maintenance-free rotor gearboxes. Tine arms use ball bearings in the cam track that are also maintenance free. The thick-walled tine arms, heavy-duty lift tines and large-diameter coils add to the machine's durability, according to the company.
