Ground Driven hay rake ???

Postby BullDAWG » Sun Aug 12, 2018 6:21 pm

I'm looking for a ground driven hay rake that would work with either my cub or super a. What would y'all recommend? Would prefer IH, but if they are prone to break or another brand is cheaper n better then let me know. Thanks

New holland 256 is a good one. Be careful buying an older rake, probably worn out and parts may be hard to find if even findable.

I have used several brands on a cub, I use the cub to give it a workout after repairs to see how it holds up, not the fastest but works good, it is heavy on the back so have front weights, that is a IH rake in the picture, get a rake with a front dolly wheel and it will be much easier on the cub

Here is a video Phil Lenke posted to the forum several (many) years ago. According to Phil, the rake in this video is a mid century IH 4 bar rake. No other info was provided.

There are two ways to get enough Cubs. One is to continue to accumulate more and more. The other is to desire less.

I’ve raked at least 200 acres of hay with an old farmhand 6 wheel rake. I had a couple of broken teeth and no other problems. I never did understand the bar rakes with all their maintenance nightmares. Never pulled one with a cub but it should handle a 5 wheel just fine

Neighbor farmer pulls a side delivery hay rake with a B Farmall. The B is his smallest tractor. Cub should handle most side delivery hay rakes just fine.

Older style hay rakes frequently come up at auction. Shouldn't be to hard to find one.

I overhauled one for my late father in law he got from his father in law. Just can't remember the make on it. But he'd use it behind his Super A.

Edit: Went looking at pics online. It was a New Idea. My wife says her Grandaddy pulled it with the Cub I have now.

Nah, it's not leaking oil. It's just marking it's territory.

I pull an IH-14 Side Delivery Rake with my Farmall Cub regularly. It took a lot to get the rake fixed up, but I was able to find the NOS parts I needed.

Lots of footage of us using it in this video:

As was mentioned above, New Holland hay rakes are popular, and parts for those may be a bit easier to track down.
