New Hay Rake Rolls Out

Nikkel Iron Works launches 'Heartlander' Overhead Rake for range of forages.

Nikkel Iron Works, the company that brought out the DARF hay rake has launched the new 513 "Heartlander" Overhead Rake. Designed for hay, grass and alfalfa raking, the product is built for the owner-operator who has two to five cuttings a season. The 513 features a patent-pending two bar design that improves the rake's stability and allows for easy adjustment.

Field-tested, the "Heartlander" offers gentle raking designed to preserve forage leaves and maximize crop nutrition and profitability. The company has also enhanced the DARF 1017 rake, first launched in 2012, with added standard features and upgrades. One new feature is a newly redesigned Fasse valve - available as an option - that allows the user to operate both sides of the rake independently.
