DARF Hay Rakes: Rugged, Gentle, Fast
For 90 years, Nikkel Iron Works has created American-made, reliable farm equipment that continues to be improved in response to customer feedback.
The DARF overhead rake is the signature product for Nikkel Iron Works and is the top-selling rake of its design. The DARF rake that is known for being rugged, gentle and fast is still all that – and more.
The model 1017 incorporates a number of significant changes and improvements to the workhorse 917 rake. The 513 Heartlander rake is the newest addition to the line-up, offering 20-foot raking width (producing a 4-foot windrow), tight turning and easy in-field adjustments.
For over 50 years, industry leaders in dairy feed and forage production have chosen DARF for its reliability, ease of operation and crop handling abilities. The DARF rake offers speed and durability to the grower and commercial operator and superior service and technical support to the dealer.
New: Nut Crowder, A World Ag Expo Top 10 Product
Nikkel Iron Works’ Nut Crowder was named a Top 10 New Product by World Ag Expo, Tulare. The Nut Crowder, patent pending, provides a simple solution to the challenge of lost crop – and lost revenue. This simple but effective implement gathers nuts from the end of each lane in the orchard and repositions the windrow for the trailing harvester to pick up.
The Nut Crowder was designed in response to input from nut growers who were frustrated with spillage at lane end that required hand labor to collect.
