I agree that maintainance should be made but when you buy a rake to rebuild for resale and later use that has not properly been maintained and you cannot get the parts anymore it is agrivating. All you can do is starting to strip rakes for parts that should be able to be rebuilt and back in the fields. And those 4 bar New Idea are the top rake the Amish want followed by the McCormick 4 bar enclosed gear rake and then the John Deere 594 rake. I live in about a 150 mile radious of 75% of the Amish here in the USA. And for the past several years locating and fixing or totally rebuilding rakes had been a good part of my income. Not able to do it any more.

When an ad says "all it needs" it is NEVER "all it needs."

On the older New Idea rakes some of the pieces they should have made heavier they tried to remidy the problem by putting a reenforcement plate on by just riviting things together and water would get between and rust things out. The frame problems came from it not being heavy enough to carry the weight of the second caster wheel when it was raised for tedding on slightly rough ground. It needed to be unbolted and taken off. Would have been simple corrections if just would have made them, other parts they did upgrade them but new parts are no longer avaible from New Idea or succsors. Just raising the teeth would not have taken care of tyem and the rusting out was a maintainence problel by not putting in a shed all the time. But how many people did put in sheds on all machinery? John Deere did have a problem with one crittical part rusting away that if they would have put a water drain hole on could have helped that. On all except the Case rake they liked to wear the bars away where the bearings were and then the bars would brake, Case solved that by putting a sleeve around the bar where the bearing ran on. Combine the good ideas-parts from all makes and you would have had a better machine.
