UN-Puzzleing The Equipment

Storing the equipment in the barn at the end of hay season every year is truly a puzzle. Every piece has to be jockeyed into place in the correct order so that all the sticky-out parts fit snugly without bumping into other sticky-out parts of other machines.

With the weather forecast calling for a stretch of good grass drying temperatures, it’s time to bring out the hay equipment.

First out of the barn is the fluffer. Once serviced and unfolded into position, the four egg beater type tines fluff the windrows of mowed hay so air can circulate through the wet blades to dry evenly.

The mower will be attached to the big tractor with the PTO (power take off) shaft and hydrolic hoses. The mower will be the first piece of equipment into the field to cut the tall grass.
