The Hay Gyro rake is expensive, but it has multiple functions where other gyro rakes do not. This rake is designed to rake, spread and tedder at high speeds. The purpose for the spreading or teddering functions is to spread the hay across a large area to decrease drying time. If cut hay was rained on, it can still be salvaged. Those who have high yields will find this rake more suitable than any other rake. The teddering function also aids in uniform color due to more even drying which is important to hay producers who sell high quality hay. The efficient wheel rakes SFI sells are ground driven. Some individuals who sell high quality hay prefer pto driven rakes to insure no dirt can mix with the hay.
Pine straw producers also use the gyro rake because of its ability to leave the older straw on the ground and rake the fresh to increase quality. Pine straw producers also appreciate the spreading option to remove dirt and other foreign material from the straw prior to raking.
