Engineered specifically for the heavy crops found in the UK, our attention to detail delivers unparalleled performance in the field in both grass and straw applications.
The Super-ted 221 has a 2.2m. wide pick-up and is suitable for silage (will do two 3m. swaths side by side), straw from all modern combines and hay.

Why Own a Super-ted?
1. Faster Drying
With grass a quick drying time reduces nutrient loss and produces more palatable fodder. High dry-matter silage also results in less effluent being created at the clamp. The Super-ted effect is twofold, typically halving the drying time of other methods.
The crop is lifted, with air being introduced to the swath for more even drying from top to bottom.
The waxy cellulose coating on the plant is cracked without damaging the crop to improve evaporation of moisture.
With straw the risk of damage by mould in a damp crop is minimised.
2. Reduced Crop Contamination
Crop loss is reduced by keeping the swaths intact and not spreading them over the ground. Stone and soil contamination is reduced by not having to carry out a second raking operation.
3. Reduced Costs in One Pass
Save fuel, labour and reduce ground compaction. The Super-ted is a high-speed one-pass operation as there is no need to spread and row up again
4. Tidier swaths
The swaths produced by the Super-ted are box shaped with clean edges and can be adjusted in width and offset using the rear doors. This enables greater throughputs in the following harvesting or baling operation.

|Overall length - doors open||3.27m|
|Overall length - doors closed||1.86m|
|Overall height - in lowest working position||1.04m|
|Height adjustment||40 - 200mm|
|Fixed wheel tyre size||N/A|
|Castor wheel tyre size||6.00 - 9 - 10|
|PTO type||with Overrun Clutch|
|Minimum tractor size||65hp|
|Number of drive belts||4 x 'B' Section|

"When we buy kit we want something that will last"
Alistar Hodnett farms 255 acres in partnership with his father Michael on the outskirts of Dundee.
Last year over 24,000 tonnes of straw were procured and retailed, with over 6000 acres of straw from and around farms in Angus, Fife and Perthshire areas purchased and baled. Furthermore 80 acres of haylage and 80 acres of hay are baled off the farm and sold all over Scotland.
Attention to detail in producing a quality product is paramount when supplying to such a large customer base and Alistar uses a Super-ted 221, to ted and condition his straw (following a 40' header) and grass crops, "achieving fantastic work rates at a forward speed of around 10mph".
We are delighted with the performance and reliability of our Super-ted.
We use a Super-ted prior to baling as this lifts the crop off the ground, to not only aid drying, but the crop is more easily picked up by the balers, thus reducing mechanical damage to the baler pick up and allowing the balers to travel faster over the field.
We have other types of rake but they tend to knock the stubble flat and do not allow the straw bout to sit up on the stubble, and therefore allow drying from underneath as well. The machine is also very gentle on the crop and produces an even lump free swath which has not been shattered or broken down after being tedded several times.
