New Buck Rake



Trial run with the new buck rake.





First ride with the buck rake.
For those of you who don't know what a buck rake is. After hay is cut in the field you use the buck rake to bring your wind rows of hay over to where it will then be put up into a loose stack of hay. Hopefully when haying season gets here I will have more pictures of this process.

Trevor built this buck rake from scratch. The crazy wheels on the back, the front axle, and the lifter are the original parts from an old buck rake that was found in our neighbors meadow from when it was used to put up meadow hay.
