New Compact Single Rotor Rakes

Compact Designed Single Rotor Rakes with New Gearbox and Headstock Geometry

Vicon unveils its new line of compact single rotor rakes.Called the Andex 394 and 434 these two new models features 3.90 and 4.30m working width, newly designed CompactLine gearbox and improved headstock geometry for better ground following.

Improved Gearbox Design
The Andex 394 and 434 are fitted with the improved CompactLine gearbox visualized by the newly design gearbox cover. All key components the gear box is running in an oil bath with maintenance free cam track and cam track followers. The movement and timing of the cam track and cam track followers has been optimized to ensure better swath formation and more accurate raking, reducing crop pollution into the swath.

The geometry of the three point headstock has been optimised to provide more movement and adaptation of the raking during operation. This will allow the rake unit to move more independently from the headstock, providing more accurate ground contour following.

These new rakes can be supplied with the newly designed third wheel. In addition to improving ground followings it is very easy to adjust and set the correct height by use of a spindle. The third wheel can be mounted on either sides of the drawbar.
