Default rakeup pickup attachment

I was looking at a rakeup pickup attachment that is not the belt type. I don't know how they work. How are they in wheat? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

We have one on a 1015 Case pickup. Hard to explain how it works, but it incorporates some sideways movement as well as upwards, which as the name implys, rakes the windrow. Works great in all swathed cereals. We refrain from using it in canola as it shakes the windrow too much causing the pods to shatter. Since there is no belts the seeds fall onto the ground. It is probably the best pickup made for scraping up cereal windrows that are thin, fell through the stubble or rained on.

In approximately 10,000 acres we haven't replaced a thing aside from the pickup teeth. Very durable.

redgreen, thanks for the info. By looking at it I wasn't sure how it would work. We had some issues with grain falling in the stubble last year and we had trouble picking it with our sund.

In canola, just make sure you have your pickup ground speed controlled and you won't have any shattering problems.

A rakeup pickup is like a parallel bar rake laying almost flat.
Of course that only helps if your familiar with a parallel bar rake.
It is by far the best pickup in tough picking due to the sideways sweeping motion of the pickup teeth.
I also agree with jaymo, shattering should not be an issue.

If the guy swathing had a little trouble and made some piles a rake-up will give you a chance to tear the pile apart.
We have 2 rake-ups. One for both combines. I only pick up a little rye and my dad pick up some oats for the neighbors.
In my opinion (only experiece with sund and 4 different belt pickups) it is the best pickup we have ever had.

In a side by side comparison with the rake up and a JD 914, the rake up shelled more seeds onto the ground then the 914. Tried a maze of pickup speeds in relation to ground speed and could not produce the same results as the belted 914. It was extremely dry when we did the comparison, probably should not have been picking up canola but time was of the essence.

Just for clarification
