Genuine reviews from very happy people

Wonderful! This useful piece of equipment has made it so much easier for our RDA centre! Easy to use, sturdy and strong and any one of our volunteers can use it. Thank you Paddock Blade Australia for supporting Riding Develops Ability. Our paddocks have never looked better and our 9 ponies are happy

Monica Kennedy - RDA Myrtleford

My wife suggested I buy a paddock blade and I was a little sceptical. We went ahead and ordered one. Great sales staff. It has since done a fantastic job clearing my paddocks of horse and cow poo. It is strong, well designed and really functional. Congrats Paddock Blade great product.

Allan Geraldene - Narrawong, Victoria

Absolutely love this product! Works perfectly, great pick up and does a fabulous job tidying the paddocks from our horse, cow and sheep. Tough and reliable and the perfect size too. Would not hesitate to recommend this to others.

Pete Williams - Mount Tarampa, Queensland

Could not be more impressed with the paddock blade. It is so quick and easy to use. Not only cleaning poo but clearing sticks and rocks. Worked well on flat and hilly paddocks with high grass. Love love love my blade.

Amber Howie, South Australia

I bought one last week and I’m amazed at how well it works even on my bumpy and undulating paddocks. Huge time and effort saver.
Fantastic customer service, Jake was really easy to deal with and it’s nice to support a local business.

Lilja Viggosdottir - Healsville, Victoria

Great addition to our farm equipment. The paddock blade is easy to use and attaches to virtually any vehicle. We have used it at the back of our lawn tractor and our bigger 45 hp tractor and it did great on both.

Andrew Jones, Gidgegannup, Western Australia

My paddock blade was delivered on my birthday. Best present ever. It is brilliant. So easy to use. We have rocks in some of our paddocks and it’s picks them up as well. Fantastic design, easy to hook up to our Polaris, easy to empty. Our dogs love it as well! Highly recommended.

Catherine Way - Richmond, Tasmania

From ordering to delivery to performance I can’t fault this product or service. We live in a very remote location and the paddock blade arrived exactly as promised. We have plenty of horses on the station and the paddocks are now spick and span. Works in longer grass, uneven ground and is extremely easy to use. I tow it with a side x side easy to empty. Love it, get one you won’t regret it.

Tania Guaran - Hunter Valley, New South Wales

Received our paddock blade.. does the job perfectly.. could not be happier .. no more shovelling!!! Picks up almost anything you are wanting to clear off the ground.. Awesome tool!!
