The future of raking



The new belt rake for tractors with reverse drive system.

“Never drive over the forage again”
“Perfect view of the working units”
“As manoeuvrable as a self-propelled machine”

Arguments that convince the farmer and the contractor.

Master of flexibility




The RESPIRO push-drive belt rake is very flexible in use, whether in silage, massive forage, dry hay or for raking straw. In addition, field corners and areas with obstacles can be easily cleaned.

In order to be able to gather enough swath mass for the harvesting technique, lifting over swaths several times is no problem. Compared to conventional roundabout rake technology, there is no additional increase in forage contamination.

Possibilities of swath placement

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.
