Freestall Rake Compost / Manure Model
With different types of bedding, it is important to pick the right rake for the job. Manure vs. sand are two completely different materials and act in 2 different ways. That is why we use 3 different rake tines on the manure bedding rake. We must cover the bottom of the beds with the one tine and break and fluff with the other tines. One is used for a curb guide and the outer ones have the easy job of just fluffing.
We have a full range of replacement parts for the rake arm or a completely assembled arm for easy repairs. You will find if taken care of, our rake arms last way longer than you would think. We have thousands of rakes at dairies all over the world. Through the years we have always been looking for better ways to do what we do better. Your comments drive us to be better.
The curb and lane scraper on the back is a very useful tool in keeping your bedding dry. Drier beds equal fewer bacteria and happier cows. Happy cows’ equal better production.
