Raking for good-quality feed: that is what the Lely Hibiscus rakes stand for. The Lely Hibiscus 1515 CD four-rotor rake takes this one step further. With its unique frame, this rake offers unrivalled flexibility and stability.

The frame makes this a compact and versatile machine. Ideally suited for smaller and more trickily shaped plots. The machine is perfectly suited for folding out in hilly terrains.

Unique frame for stability and user-friendliness

The V-shaped frame makes for a compact and stable machine without sacrificing stability. This offers many benefits.

User friendliness

The frame of the 1515 CD has a unique V shape. When you fold the machine out to its working mode, the frame shifts out towards the centre of gravity. Rotors are hung on the beams of the frame which form its V shape. Thanks to the shorter arms and cylinders, the lifting and lowering speed on headlands is increased. As is the total capacity of the machine. 

The frame offers a range of swath widths thanks to the flexible distance and variable angle between the two main beams. The working widths are easy to configure yourself. They vary between 11 and 14.8 metres and the swath width between 0.9 and 3.5 metres, depending on the working width configured. Once configured, the machine itself adjusts to the best proportions and determines the remaining settings. 

Stability for perfect ground-contour following and tight bends

Thanks to the frame’s V shape, the machine becomes wider when folded out. And the wider the rake is, the more stable it is when it is being operated. The wheels are also fitted between the rotors. This guarantees you excellent ground-contour following, even on very uneven ground contours. 

With the V-frame, many of the heavier components are shifted towards the front of the transport wheels. This means that the weight remains at the front of the machine, even when used on headlands. 

The position of the wheels and the shape of the frame also allow you to turn in tight bends. Leaving no piece of land unraked. Efficiency in as little time as possible.


Good-quality feed

The quality of feed is guaranteed thanks to the transport wheels not touching the ground and the crops. Raking with a Hibiscus 1515 CD prevents extra dirt landing in the crops, increasing the yield from your crops.

Safe transport

The Hibiscus 1515 CD also offers safe transport. There are no sharp ends sticking out at the back of the machine because the rotors are folded in during transport. The rear rake is also 50 cm narrower than the front rake and two transport rakes ensure that the machine remains stable and folded in during transport.

Lely Hibiscus 1515 CD: stable, versatile and safe.


Rake your crops as neatly as possible into the perfect swath and minimise undesirable mould and bacteria in the feed. The working width of our rakes is easily adjustable to create the ideal swath width for the next step in the harvest process.
