Genuine reviews from very happy people

Everything about this product is ideal for horse owners. I enjoy cleaning paddocks now because its the easiest job I can do, truly...put the Paddock Blade cable hook on the tow ball then drive, the manure, weeds,sticks,rocks,dirt,wire etc collects, it is virtually mulched up too.

Take off what is rubbish and using the side handles tip out the contents. I use mine as mulch or in the run off areas. Big Fan! Most worthwhile purchase I've made in some time, a game changer for my workload and environmentally (due to flies).

Just used my paddock blade for the first time today! With four horses to pick up after I was getting overwhelmed by the wheelbarrow and rake, especially in my paddock that has lots of lumpy tufty grass to try and pick the manure out of!

I towed it around behind our lawn mower and collected 3 blades full of manure. Was so happy and relieved to see it collecting the manure. It doesn’t pick it all up when going over such uneven & lumpy ground but the manure it leaves behind gets spread. I’m happy with that, the wheelbarrow was killing me in the end!!!!

I have just purchased this amazing Paddock Blade. This is such a fantastic addition to our farm life. It is so easy to use and without any effort whatsoever. I rescue Livestock and it has allowed me an extra 3 hours to do other jobs around the place and has helped this aged girl to do this work without any pain.

I have cleaned up hay, rocks, branches after storms and the amount of manure that accumulates tenfold from my menagerie. I highly recommend, this Paddock Blade to everyone. I also love the fact that there is a follow up from the company, checking that all is ok from arrival to use. Awesome Paddock Blade Australia and Thankyou for making my life much easier now

I have always enjoyed having a clean paddock but found it hard on my back and body. After finding this product on Facebook I thought great this will save time and less pain. This system has given me a 15 minute paddock clean on a 5 acre property and has minimised my back and body pains which has now given me more time to spend with my family.

Matthew Davids, South Australia

LOVE our paddock blade, have used it twice now, OMG so much faster. We use it behind a can-am. I just lift it from the back from a squat position - ladies it's easy to do by yourself! It is really good at grabbing sticks and rocks as well, paddocks look gorgeous.

Vanessa Hamilton - Nanaango, Queensland

Just used our paddock blade for the first time today. WOW ... just love it. We have long kikuyu grass and even longer fire weed... the paddock blade did it easily ... it picked up 90% and what it didn’t pick up it spread.

We live on a small hill, all the paddocks have slope to them but the paddock blade couldn’t have cared less. We pulled it easily with the cub cadet Pro Z 100 Zero turn. So happy with this product. It does 100% of what it is advertised to do . Jake was great to deal with, the blade was delivered by TNT ...couldn’t be happier.

Our Paddock Blade was delivered to our door about a week ago.. shiny & red! My wife asked me if I could hook it up to our side by side ATV this morning so she could try it out.. so I did, both our dogs climbed in with her & off she went.. after a hour she came back huge smile on her face couldn’t get over how well the Paddock Blade worked.

Our paddocks aren’t all flat, quite undulating in areas but that made no difference to how the Paddock Blade worked.. even the doge were impressed as was I lol.. she had a ball picking up horse poo? Go figure.. we love it couldn’t recommend the product & the customer service we experienced during the purchase... don’t hold off wondering if it works, it does, extremely well, if you have horses, cows, deer, alpacas or just want to clean your paddocks up do yourself a favour get one! Thanx heaps guys!!

Greg Doodson - Christchurch, New Zealand

Ok horsey friends this is a absolute life saver I've been wanting a paddock blade for a while and I was lucky enough to get one for Christmas . I was worried it would work cause my paddocks are not flat quite bumpy.

But my gosh these are brilliant and worth every penny, photo below is two minutes worth and it comes in purple which is awesome. So if any of you are sick of picking up poop and want more time to ride get onto it get a paddock blade its a small company with amazing service you won't be disappointed.

Kelly Roussow- Hunter Valley, New South Wales

This product is simply amazing. I’d thought about getting one for a while but couldn’t justify the money, but boy was I wrong. I finally gave in and bought myself one and now I don’t know why I waited so long. I love, love, love it and actually get a little excited when I go out to clean the paddock, I know it’s only going to take me 1/2 an hour and I’ll be done. No more shovelling for 3 days and ending up with shovel blisters and a sore back.

I’m just sorry I didn’t get it sooner. PS. The before service, delivery time and after service are as amazing as their product. Thanks Paddock Blade for making my life and the time I get to spend with my horses and family so much better.
