Every horse and
alpaca owner knows what a tedious and physically demanding chore it
is to keep horse pastures and alpaca paddocks manure free, however it
remains an essential part of good animal health management to regularly
remove manure from the paddock to help reduce worm infestation as well
as to avoid pastures becoming weedy and sour. Horses and alpacas living
in these conditions long-term can become ill (including fatally) due
to serious worm burdens while the pasture can also become very clumpy
with uneven grass and weed growth and will provide less and less quality
and value as a food source.
of manure collection using a wheelbarrow and shovel or gloves are hard
work and time consuming and require daily removal before the job quickly
becomes too overwhelming to tackle. If the average horse drops anywhere
between 8 - 15 manures per day, this soon adds up to ALOT of poo if
you get too busy doing other things or miss a few days!
With a Paddock Groomer,
you can easily collect and remove horse manure and alpaca poo from your
short grazed paddocks every few days, once or twice a week, or as it
suits you, saving you time and alot of physical effort, assisting in
healthier animals and keeping your fields looking cleaner, healthier
Simply hitch the
Paddock Groomer to your quad bike or other towing vehicle. Once in the
grazed paddock, wind the brushes down to the correct height ready to
start "grooming". As you drive around the paddock over the
poo piles, the very strong rotating brush will sweep up horse/alpaca
poo and any other general pasture debris that you pass over (such as
weed heads, dead grass, leaves, small stones and rubbish) into the collection
floating spring mechanism means it can be used on both flat and undulating
paddocks and the adjustable brush height allows for effective collection
without disturbing the soil.

Simple, Effective Manure Collection for Healthier Horses and Alpaca
With a Paddock Groomer you
can clean your horse/alpaca paddocks quickly and easily while sitting
down on your quad bike compared to the traditional, laborious daily
method of using a wheelbarrow and shovel. No more feeling overwhelmed
looking at grazed paddocks full of days worth of manure build up
and wondering how you will find the energy or time to clean it all
up! With a Paddock Groomer you may choose to collect manure from
the fields every few days, once or twice a week, or whenever it
- NO stopping and starting required at every poo like vacuum
machines! Everywhere you drive the Paddock Groomer will be sweeping
manure and pasture debris into the collection chamber as you pass
over the top of it, not just focusing on the individual manure spots
like vacuum machines do. It really is an allround pasture cleaner.
Durable Yet Lightweight Construction with Simple Use & Maintenance
The entire body of the Paddock Groomer is made of very
strong, durable, weather resistant moulded UV-treated polyethylene
plastic which will not rust, rot or fade and is robust for use in
all outdoor and farm type settings (life expectancy of over 20 years).
Quality galvanised stainless steel chassis and fittings, combined
with industrial standard road sweeper type brushes mean your Paddock
Groomer requires very little maintenance or care apart from oiling
the chain and washing down with water on occasion after use to keep
the chain drive, collection tray / chamber and brushes clean and
debris free for optimal performance.
The relatively light weight and size of the Paddock Groomer makes
it very manageable for people of all ages and strengths to use and
manouevre around. A standard quad bike or ATV can tow a Paddock
Groomer with ease, and it is also light enough to be towed by a
ride-own mower over fairly flat terrain if required.
All machines come with an instruction booklet for use and maintenance.
Motor = Eco Friendly! No Additional Fuel Costs, Quiet Use plus Safety.
of our Paddock Groomer models are chain driven pasture sweeper machines,
not motor operated. This means the Paddock Groomer is a very eco-friendly
machine as there are no additional emissions or fuel costs and very
little noise produced by the Paddock Groomer compared to most other
manure collectors or pasture sweepers which have their own noisy engine,
so it can be used in amongst your animals while they are still in
the paddock once they are familiar with seeing it.
No motor also means it is very safe to use because when the Paddock
Groomer is stationary, there are no moving parts. This also means
when you stop moving, the brush isn't continuously sweeping which
can cause alot of uneccesary damage to the brush, pasture and soil.
Towed by a Quad Bike, ATV, or even your Ride-On Mower!
The Paddock Groomer's
compact size and lightweight yet durable construction means it is
quite easy to handle and it will not push your towing vehicle around
if used on hills or sloping ground. The width has been kept the same
size as a standard quad bike to enable easy passing through gateways
and around corners, as well as allowing you to easily drive centrally
over the poo piles for most effective pickup.
Spring Mechanism For Flat and Undulating Paddocks
The unique floating spring mechanism on the Paddock Groomer allows
it to stay closer to the ground and follow contours, ups and downs
meaning more effective pickup if your paddocks aren't completely flat
or include hills, slopes and bumps.
Brush Height For No Soil Disturbance
By using the winding handle to adjust the height of the brush on your
Paddock Groomer means that you can collect the horse manure, alpaca
poo, weed blooms and small debris from your paddock without disturbing
As the name suggests, as well as collecting horse manure and alpaca
poo, the Paddock Groomer also removes small debris from your paddocks
such as leaves, small stones, grass debris, weed heads and rubbish
(the Paddock Groomer can pick up cans, paper coffee cups, empty chip
bags etc) simply by driving over them while it can also help to smooth
over loose dirt clods which are commonly formed in horse paddocks,
greatly improving the appearance and functionality of the paddock.
Weeds such as docks and buttercup (common in horse paddocks) do not
like being run over by the Paddock Groomer which will often damage
or break and collect the tops off them helping to delay their growth.
the Contents of the Original Groomer Collection Tray Anywhere!
point of difference with the Original model Paddock Groomer compared
to many other manure collectors is that manure and debris is collected
into a removeable tray (below left) - very similar to a lawn-mower
catcher - which means you can remove and empty the tray under fencelines,
around trees, onto a trailer to take it away, onto a poo pile or wherever
you wish instead of just being dumped on the spot like most other
The collection tray is quite easy to remove by letting the back end
drop to the ground then tipping over sideways to empty (very similar
to emptying a wheelbarrow but without any of the effort of picking
it all up and pushing it everywhere!)
Our Super Groomer model (below right) features an easy dump
emptying system that drops collected manure directly into a pile when
you open the back lid.
