Tedder : General Information
A tedder is a type of agricultural machine developed in the 19th century. It is primarily used to turn over and disperse the cut grass in order to dry it. Thanks to the use of a tedder, the freshly cut grass is quicker transformed into hay. A tedder is said to be a very time and labour saving device since it is able to perform work usually done by up to fifteen farm workers. It is particularly useful when the crop is rather heavy and even when it is wet. Due to the fact that it not only turns over the grass or crop, but also spreads it, the machine is sometimes called a spreader. It is also important to note that apart from speeding up the process of making hay, the use of machine also significantly improves its quality. The device consists of three major parts: two wheels, the set of moving forks, which are responsible for dispersing grass or crop, and the seat for the person who operates it.
The original tedders were developed in the 19th century and were pulled by horses. The strength of the animals caused the axle to rotate moving the whole set of forks. Nowadays, obviously the tractors are used although the principle remains the same.
