Enhancements include the upgraded Dur-Adjust Spring and Rod System and Super Duty walking beam assemblies now offered as standard features. Hydraulic hoses are enclosed for a smoother, more efficient and maintenance-free operation; a convenient, easy-access cover protects the multifunction hydraulic valve from weather and debris; and a redesigned channel lift tube support delivers trouble-free rake wheel height adjustment.

Nikkel Iron Works manufactures its equipment at a plant in Shafter in California's San Joaquin Valley. The DARF hay rake is known for its durability and its ability to gently, yet quickly, handle hay in the field.

The DARF hay rake is available with up to 17 wheels in 24 models in order to meet operators' specific needs.
