The Paddock designed and manufactured wheel rake, also known as a finger wheel or pin wheel rake, is an affordable option for farmers and acreage owners to rake hay, grasses, foliage, chaff, straw and other crops into rows. A uniform and fluffy row is created which allows for faster more effective drying. The Paddock tractor hay rakes are versatile and can be used in a range of applications. Simple, yet robust, the finger wheels are driven by the crop / ground which makes the Paddock wheel rake an economical option without compromising performance.
Beware! There are many cheap tractor rakes on the market. PADDOCK units are exceptional quality with loads of units in use around Australia. Come and compare to spot the differences.
Compatibility - The Paddock wheel rakes will fit a large range of tractors and are generally universal among Category 1 tractors. Customers are running the Paddock wheel rakes on all your big name tractors including Case, John Deere, Kubota and Massey Ferguson, to name a few.
The tractor wheel rake is very simple with few moving parts making it a reliable, effective rake while keeping purchase costs down. Maintenance is minimal compared to other rake types. As the finger wheels are spun using the crop and ground, no hydraulics or PTO are required meaning almost any category 1 tractor can run this implement. The horsepower requirements are also drastically reduced.
The Paddock wheel hay rakes are used to rake hays, grasses, straws and other cut produce into rows. Formed rows can be left to dry or can be collected and baled. Being a versatile implement it can also be used for dethatching lawns or park lands to improve grass growth and soil aeration.
Operation of the rake is simple. With the rake fitted to the 3 point linkage of your tractor the large arm turns from the turning to rowing position. Moving the tractor forward, the two large wheels are ground driven. The high speed spinning of the wheels allows the wheel fingers to throw the hay or crop into a row on one side. Repeating up and down the field will give a series of rows ready for drying, collection or baling. Once finished the rake is easily removed - it can also be dismantled and stored at the end of the season.

Good quality rake, works well and doesn't leave much behind so less waste.
Happy to leave a postive review on the rake and baler. We started fencing off a few acres on our small cattle farm to allow some grass to get to a height where we could make some round bales before winter. The Scintex baler and rake very affordable and means we can quickly get the cost back given the price of stock at present. Have already told others in our area and they are looking to buy or borrow mine and would highly recommend to all.
