The Vermeer VR1224 rake is the newest addition to the Vermeer family of high capacity carted wheel rakes. These rakes are designed and built in Pella, Iowa by Vermeer employees. The VR1224 wheel rake is exceptionally user friendly. All adjustments are easily made. The operator can adjust the rake width, as well as the windrow width, all without turning a wrench. The patented rubber torsion suspension system can be adjusted for heavier or lighter setting with no tools as well. The VR1224 wheel rake also offers the flexibility of single sided raking, on both the left and right sides if the operator chooses just to turn the windrow. The rugged 6"x4" inch channel frame, combined with a high clearance design to allow heavy crops to flow easy under the frame, makes the VR1224 a rugged high capacity rake.
