The newly released semi-mounted central delivery rakes GA 7631 and GA 8131 complement the existing Kuhn rake range. Intended for medium and large size farms, the simple design is user-friendly and offers a wide range of equipment and with working widths from 6.7 to 7.5 metres (the GA 7631) and 7.1 to 8 metres (the GA 8131).

Designed for intensive use and to rake dense and heavy fodder, a key feature is the Master Drive GIII double reduction gearbox with conical and cylindrical sprockets. Aluminium alloy bearings incorporating a guide with bronze bushings and an outward sealing ring allow significant reduction in the weight of moving parts.

The service life of the rotor is extended, with the lubrication intervals spaced at 200 hours. Reliability of these machines and a low level of maintenance actively contribute to cost-effectiveness.

The design, with a high frame, ensures fast rotor lift during turnaround manoeuvres, providing important clearance under the rotors (from 43cm to 70cm depending on the working width setting) to help prevent damaging already formed windrows.

The rotor attachment point is optimised to lower the rear of the rotor first. The plant cover is preserved thanks to the ‘jet effect’. The u-joints of the rotors and wheels located closest to the tines allows faithful ground following and clean raking. These factors contribute positively to harvesting quality forage.
