Fendt Former 880 Twin Rotor Rake
Adjustable working width from 7.2m to 8m,
Electrohydraulic individual rotor lift, Tandem Axles
All Fendt Former multi-rotor hay rakes have a fully cardanic rotor suspension. This gives them outstanding adjustability to the ground, both lengthwise and diagonally, with even forage which lies in wheel tracks or hollows being harvestable without being lost. As a result, the sward is also protected on uneven terrain.
The tine arms of the Fendt Former rakes are arranged at tangents. This provides the ultimate in raking quality and optimal forage pick-up even at higher speeds. As the double tines are screwed into the tine holders from below a smooth surface on which no forage can hook is produced. The clearance of the tines to the coils is also completed unlimited. The tine arms can be detached after removing a single cotter pin, and tine arm control shafts can be replaced individually without disassembling the rake flange. To do this, only individual screws need to be loosened
Simple but low-wear, durable and above all, precise: this is the patented SteerGuard steering system. The stub axle steering uses adjustable track rod heads from the commercial vehicle sector. This ensures precise self-steering and excellent stability. In order to direct steering forces towards the rear, the steering shaft is located within the frame and protected against damage. It has just a few separation points and mounts and is therefore very low wear.
The best swath is the result of an optimised cam track. The special design of the Fendt Former cam track ensures that the tines are lifted and lowered precisely. Due to the standard cam track adjustment, the delivery time can be individually adjusted depending on the forage quality, so that the swath is perfectly formed under all conditions. The output of the trailed machines therefore increases appreciably. The closed design protects the cam track against dirt and dust, and the rotors are very smooth running thanks to the permanent lubrication.
