The future of raking


What would you like to know more about?

Never drive over the forage again

The new belt rake for tractors with reverse drive.

With conventional roundabout rake technology, the forage is pushed into the ground in the tractor track, this leads to increased dirt accumulation, raking and crumble losses. With the RESPIRO push-drive belt rakes, these disadvantages are eliminated because they never drive over the forage again! This is the only way to achieve unique forage quality and fewer losses. Practitioners confirm the outstanding work quality, achieved by the flexible pick-up and the dragging tine.

The many positive effects of clean forage create the added value that makes this technology a highly profitable investment.

Customers also appreciate the good visibility of the working units – driving like 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.

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.
