5 Reasons To Swap Your Paddock Cleaning Wheelbarrow For The Paddock Blade

Is there a better way to pick up horse manure?

The humble wheelbarrow is a staple tool on any horse owners property.

But when it comes to cleaning horse manure from your pasture, what if your wheelbarrow is just wasting your time and wearing you out?

It turns out there’s a much faster, easier, and less tiring way to clean your paddocks – a tow behind manure collector called the Paddock Blade.

Like the wheelbarrow, this is pretty simple to use. However instead of requiring hours of physical labor to collect manure, you only need to drive a few laps around the paddock with your car or ATV to get the job done.

Here are five reasons a Paddock Blade beats a wheelbarrow when it comes to cleaning horse manure from your pasture.

Reason 1: Save time (hours and hours)

We’ll put it simply: the Paddock Blade cleans paddocks in a quarter of the time your wheelbarrow does.

So if it currently takes you 4 hours a week to clean your pasture with a wheelbarrow, you can whiz around with your Paddock Blade and get the same thing done in an hour.

Over the course of the year, that’s a lot of saved hours.


Reason 2: Don't hurt your back

All hardworking horse owners have over-filled a wheelbarrow at some point in their lives.

There’s the strain on your legs as you try and push it up a slope or the wrench to your back as it wobbles off to the side and you keep it from tipping over. So it’s unsurprising that wheelbarrows have caused many a back injury.

The smart thing would be to fill it less and take more trips. But try telling that to someone who only has a couple of hours to ride two horses and clean the paddocks before dark!

With the Paddock Blade, there’s no need to push around over-filled wheelbarrows. You can keep to the comfort of your car or ATV and save your back for riding.


Reason 3: Keep your pasture clean and healthy

Lots of people know it’s important to keep their pasture clean. But far fewer people actually have time to clean it as regularly as they should.

As a result, the paddocks get messy, the grass sours, and the parasites get to stay and continue their breeding cycle.

However, it’s much easier to keep up with cleaning your pastures when you have the Paddock Blade to speed up the process. Healthier pastures and more time to spend with your horses – it’s a win win!


Reason 4: Preserve your wheelbarrow

Whether or not you have a tow behind manure collector, a wheelbarrow is still something horse owners can’t do without.

So rather than wear it out trudging up and down the paddocks and filling it with horse manure, why not keep it in good condition for everything else you use it for?

Reason 5: Give yourself more time to ride!

Would you describe yourself as a horse rider?

Or more of a permanently exhausted horse owner who gets to squeeze in the odd ride between feeding and picking up after your steeds? 

If cleaning paddocks keeps you busy, the time a Paddock Blade saves you will easily let you fit in a couple more rides each week. Imagine how quickly you and your horse would improve then?

So there you have it. Replacing your trusty old wheelbarrow with the Paddock Blade tow behind manure collector will save you time, save your paddocks, save your back, and even save you regularly buying a new wheelbarrow!

The Paddock Blade also collect other objects such as fruit, rocks, golf balls and handle the rough, uneven ground, so you can trust it to do the job properly.

The Paddock Blade can be purchased in Melbourne or shipped Australia-wide.

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.
