Section Control – Full Control of Headlands
With its span of 15m working width and four rotors this kind of rake requires a skilled driver.
To maximise output, precision is needed, from both machine and operator, especially during headland operation. You need to lift and lower the rotors at just the right time, to rake up crop in the most efficient manner and prepare the perfectly formed swath for pick-up. This often means that an extra round, to clean up the headlands, is required. This is now history with the introduction of the Andex 1505 GEORAKE.
This essential operation has been fully automated and each of the 4 rotors is individually controlled via section control, without any attention needed from the operator, who can fully focus on optimising the raking operation, keeping up the working speed and turning efficiently on headlands. GEORAKE reduces the risk of mistakes and the need for corrective actions and hence extra work.
GEORAKE Makes Raking so Easy
GEORAKE registers the area already raked and covered. If a rotor enters into an already raked area, it will automatically lift. Each rotor lifts individually and acts as one of four sections. When entering an un-raked area the rotor automatically lowers again in due course to prepare the next swath. No crop is left behind, and no swaths on headlands are destroyed by interference from the rotors. Work is done correctly first time with high accuracy.
When raking awkwardly shaped fields GEORAKE avoids raking into already prepared swaths, automatically lifting the rotor or rotors that are involved, without the need for any counter steering from the driver. The driver can focus on driving and keeping up speed and pace, easy and convenient.
