The future of raking

RESPIRO R3 | R3.5 profi

With the conventional 1-rotor rake, you pass over about 1/3 of the area. The forage is pressed into the soil in the tractor track, this leads to increased dirt accumulation, raking and crumble losses.

With the RESPIRO front belt rakes, these disadvantages are eliminated because you will never drive over the forage again! This is the only way to achieve unique forage quality and fewer losses.

The many positive effects of clean forage create the added value that makes this technology a highly profitable investment.
Practitioners confirm the outstanding work quality achieved by the flexible pick-up and the dragging tines. They also appreciate the good visibility of the working unit – the machine is always in full view. The front-mounted windrower is very flexible in use, whether in silage, forage, dry hay or for turning straw. In addition, field corners and areas with obstacles can be easily cleaned.

Do you drive a powerful tractor and expect impact power and reliability from your front machine? Then the RESPIRO profi series is just right for you. Easy to mount and completely independent of linkage geometry and weight, the Profi series offers unique driving dynamics and work quality. The higher the sliding resistance of the machine, the lower the contact force – that is the formula for success of these outstanding kinematics.

Whether in push mode or front-mounted, the RESPIRO profi front-mounted windrowers are the best choice for contractors and demanding farms. 
Pure ground hugging. A real working experience in a class of its own.

Technology,that pays off.

The way forward calls for a fundamental rethink from sweeping to lifting.
belt rakes are revolutionary in their features. The small-diameter, elastic, camless pick-up, combined with the trailing tines and conveyor rotor, delivers outstanding results.

Mounting profi

  • Smart kinematics with spring suspension
    • the working unit is pushed from below
    • center of rotation (MP) below ground level
    • in work the units get lighter – less wear on sliding discs, protection of the sward
    • the working unit easily lifts
    • fast reaction speed
    • higher working speed is possible
    • long life time


Excavation over 1 EW

  • In progress in floating position
  • Tractor linkage fixed

Flying hitch for straw application

  • Boundary chains

Smart kinematics

The smart kinematics with spring suspension has the advantage to place the center of rotation (MP) from top link and lower link in operation below the pressure point. This allows excellent ground-hugging of the working unit.


Easy operation of the machine

  • Rotor (1 single acting valve)
    • rotor lock for raking straw
    • rotor lift
    • rotor float position – to work in the field
  • belt direction left or right or belt stop (1 single acting valve + free oil return)
  • belt speed adjustment
