When attached to your rake, the VRTS System will support the teeth and allow the teeth to work mechanically as designed with minimal bending or breaking. You will be able to set the down pressure on your rake to meet the conditions in the field. Increased down pressure will be possible to improve efficiency in raking heavy windrows or raking on uneven ground while protecting the teeth from bending and breaking. Decreasing the down pressure in lighter hay will still allow efficient raking without the teeth being subjected to the normal pressure that can cause bending and breaking. Whether you normally spend time replacing broken or bent teeth or simply replace the entire wheel, the VRTS System will save time and money in the long run.
