    Default What rakes do you most often use in USA

    Hi, i've got a few replies from members in the US that never have seen a hay rake like this - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kPAcehqgyvI

    That let me to the question which rakes do you most often use in the USA and why??

    New Holland is big here, probably number one.
    Lots of John deere's too.

    Over the last few years, the wheeled V-rakes have become very popular. Vermeer and Sitrex are probably the most common brands.

    BTW, I've never seen one of those either. I looked on TractorHouse, and there are only two Fransgard implements listed in North America. (one in USA, one in Canada)

    ???

    I quite enjoyed watching the old Volvo doing laps. Perhaps I missed something that warranted a bit@h slap at a Danish hobby farmer.

    Around here most have switched to rotary rakes. Kuhn and Miller Pro are by far the 2 most common brands around here. Very rare now to see a wheel rake or a roll bar rake in use, yet I did see a new John deere (Vermeer?) wheel rake today.

    Only his admission in one of those threads that he only did it to win a bet on whether he or a friend could get more views on you-tube, and that he KNEW it was spamming, and that he couldn't help himself, etc...

    Oh, my mistake. I though pretty much everyone that posts a video hopes for a high number of views.

    While that may be true why waste members time with a BS question that they don't want or need the answer to all just to bump up their views? I like to answer questions, but if the information isn't really needed that takes away from someone who might actually really need help.

    Anyone who does stuff like this ends up on my ignore list.

He is generally posting videos of soccer (as its called in US) skills, and i am posting videos of vintage tractor etc. The bet is running out in the end of this month. I can say that, i am leading with several 1000 views.. I know you don't care about it, but know you know the reason. On July 1st. i will not post anything in this forum. Guess you're happy with that.

    But hey - Thanks anyway!
    Here it is, thank you for pointing it out for us. So he just jumps forums to gain views.

    It's a approved question. So stop hating and answer it. Sheesh, you are even dumber than me!....
