PROVEN RAKING FOR OVER 50 YEARS AND COUNTING
Rolabar® rakes have evolved to help today’s livestock, dairy and commercial hay operations stay ahead of schedule. Making quality hay is a New Holland tradition, and a part of Rolabar rake DNA, then and now.
Rolabar® rakes are built for tough conditions, reliable operation and long life, making them a solid investment for seasons to come.
SETTING THE STANDARD FOR CLEAN RAKING
Two 12-foot baskets with rubber-mounted tines closely follow ground contours, putting up to 30 feet of clean hay into one tidy windrow.
CREATE THE PERFECT WINDROW
A full range of basket angle adjustment allows you to create fluffy windrows for better air flow and improved drydown, or create tight windrows that better resist scattering in windy conditions.
MAKE A CLEAN, 30-FOOT SWEEP
Large commercial operations will appreciate the clean, high-capacity raking performance of the Rolabar® 230 twin basket rake. Using two 12-foot baskets, the Rolabar 230 rakes up to 30 feet of crop into one tidy windrow. It’s ideal for raking the swaths produced by self-propelled windrowers with heads up to 19 feet wide and wide, center-pivot mower-conditioners.
SMOOTH, CLEAN RAKING
Each rake bar uses 37 rubber-mounted tines to smoothly move crop to the center, even at high ground speeds. Choose between a six-tine-bar rake basket or the seven-tine-bar rake basket for added capacity and higher ground speeds.
CLOSELY FOLLOW GROUND CONTOURS
Adjustable spring-mounted front and rear solid-rubber gauge wheels are standard equipment and provide consistent tine height so you are sure to gather all of the crop. Walking beam tandem axles allow the rake to move smoothly over rough ground conditions such as pivot tracks for the cleanest possible raking.
SUPERIOR BASKET FLOTATION
Responsive flotation is where the Rolabar 230 excels, resulting in cleaner raking and less hay left behind. Since the rake baskets react quickly to varying ground conditions, you put more tonnage in the windrow. Flotation can easily be engaged by pressing a button on the control box. With flotation engaged, the basket raise/lower cylinders can extend and retract as the rake goes over uneven terrain. Unlike some competitive models with baskets that are locked in place, the Rolabar 230 rake baskets float up and over obstacles and uneven ground to rake cleanly and maximize rake tine life. Rake baskets are suspended by adjustable flotation springs to reduce the weight of the baskets on the ground.
A FULL RANGE OF ADJUSTMENTS
It’s easy to tailor the Rolabar 230 to match field and crop conditions. You can change basket height and pitch with simple turnbuckle adjustments, and the intuitive control box allows you to make changes on the go from the tractor seat. Color-coded buttons are grouped logically by function, and the low 9-gpm hydraulic requirement means you can operate the Rolabar 230 with just about any tractor in your operation.

• Fold left/right
• Angle out left/right
• Angle in left/right
ADJUST BASKET SPEED WITH THE TURN OF A KNOB
Simply rotate the knob on the top of the control box to dial in the basket speed to match your ground speed and crop conditions, which reduces leaf shatter and crop losses for maximum forage quality.
FIELD TO ROAD IN NO TIME
Using the red and blue buttons on the control box, the Rolabar 230 folds to a narrow 10’8” width for convenient maneuvering and confident, fast transport to the next location.
EASY RETURN TO PRE-SET RAKING WIDTH AND ANGLE
Adjustable stop pins on both sides of the Rolabar 230 allow you to easily repeat the same raking width you used previously for consistent raking width from field to field. Likewise, adjustable pin stops allow you to maintain basket angle and consistent windrows when moving from field to field.
TINE STRIPPER BAR TOOL
A convenient tool is provided as standard equipment to adjust or straighten tine stripper bars if they become bent. A storage location is provided under the front of the rake tongue.
