What Is a Hay Tedder and How Do You Select the Right Type?

February 28, 2017

A hay tedder is used to spread and fluff hay in a uniform swath after a windrower, mower-conditioner, rake, or some other type of equipment has created a windrow. The hay tedding process allows producers to reduce the dry down time and is especially useful for those that live in wet or humid areas, as it allows them to complete the hay baling process faster.

When the hay tedder is in use, it feeds the crop into pairs of spinning rotor teeth. Operators should angle the rotors at an upward angle to lift the crop off the ground and float it to the surface.
