Ibex belt rakes, manufactured by Molon of Italy, offer better raking quality in a simple, durable machine.
Originally designed for raking hay into windrows, Molon belt rakes work equally well for raking pine straw, leaves, and for many other applications. For haymaking, it is the only rake that easily converts to a tedder to spread hay – in less than 30 seconds and without tools.
The compact, low profile design means you can rake in places that used to be considered too confined for conventional tractor-driven rakes. Since they are designed to work directly behind the tractor and are available in nominal widths from 5 to 12 ½ feet, if your tractor will fit, so will your rake.
Any size tractor with a PTO and 3 point hitch can operate Molon rakes. They require very little power and are lightweight enough to be easily lifted by even the smallest compact and subcompact tractors. Their light weight also makes them safer to operate on steep slopes.
The design of the Molon rake is simple, meaning it is easy to use, trouble free, and very low-maintenance. There is no gearbox, and all bearings are easily greased for long life. Tubular steel construction is strong and durable. Because it is lighter weight and closer to the tractor than other rake designs, it is also safer to use with small tractors and on sloping ground.
Its light weight and compactness make it easy to disconnect, move, and store when not in use. The caster wheel for parking the machine even allows you to roll the rake by hand on any smooth surface, meaning it can be moved to a corner of the barn out of the way of other operations.
Using the rake is also easy, even for beginners. Connection is a breeze, and once connected, raking height is quickly changed with the adjusting levers on the pneumatic wheels. Unlike most hay rakes, the width of the windrow is also adjustable, so it’s easy to match your windrow size to your baler. If you need to spread your hay, switching operations is as simple as removing the hay stop.
Adjustable raking height means you never end up with dirt in your windrow, meaning better quality hay for your animals. And the raking action creates a windrow that is light and fluffy, never roped like some other designs. That means final drying can happen in the windrow, allowing you to bale sooner.
