Even if you overlook the efficiency aspect of rowing up while baling, there's an interesting forage benefit to using a front-mounted rake. The crop is not pressed down into the ground by the tractor wheels, which would then require the tines to be set slightly lower and run the risk of gathering up stones and soil. Front-mounted rakes are not a new concept. Elho, after all, has offered such a machine for several years, and now Samasz is producing the featured Twist 600.
