KUHN has announced that on August 26th, 2019 the first ever-raking world record was achieved by raking 467-acres in 8 hours using a KUHN GA 15131 quad-rotor rotary rake.
KUHN’s GA 15131 raked 58.4-acres/hour to establish the record.
The record-setting event took place on a dairy farm, owned by the Skeldal Family, in the central Jutland region of Denmark.
A representative from the DLG (Deutsche Landwirtschafts Gesellschaft) Institute carried out several measurements relating to the record including time, area and quality of work.
The representative also collected samples to confirm the rake was producing a high-quality windrow.
The DLG will publish a technical report with the characteristics of the rake performance including windrow profile, loss, and forage quality.
The KUHN GA 15131 quad-rotor rotary rake offers large farms and commercial operators the ultimate capacity in a rotary rake, according to the company.
“With working widths ranging from 31’ 2” to 48’ 3”, this rotary rake provides not only high work rates, but also high flexibility and superior working quality.”
