Does a horse paddock cleaner save money?

“Horses are so cheap to keep!” Said no horse owner ever.

So it’s quite understandable that expense is one of your main considerations when it comes to anything to do with your horses.

In your horses day to day care, it’s easy to see something like a paddock cleaner as just an extra cost or a luxury which you cannot afford.

But the right type of paddock cleaner can actually be an investment in your horses rather than an expense.

Tow behind manure collectors like the Paddock Blade are often an invaluable asset for the cost-savvy horse owner.

They save time, reduce feed bills, and prove far cheaper to run than other paddock cleaners on the market. Here’s why:


Lower your feed bills

Unless it’s composted, manure is not good for pastures.

Horses won’t eat grass soiled by manure, which means they leave patches of long grass dotted around your paddock while they eat the rest of it bare.

You end up with what’s called a ‘horse sick’ paddock, which needs to be rested until the short grass grows back again.

A tow behind manure collector is an efficient way to keep your paddocks clean and healthy so that they provide more nutrients for longer and you can spend less on your hand feeding.


Keep your horses safe and healthy

Of course, we always want our horses to be healthy and sound, but reducing our vet bills is also easier on the wallet.

The first step to keeping your horses safe is maintaining a paddock that’s free from parasites and potential hazards.

Collecting horse manure with the Paddock Blade is one of the most effective ways to keep parasites out of your paddock.

At the same time, it’s important to keep your paddock free from rocks and other debris to reduce the chance of your horses getting injured, and the Paddock Blade collects these in the same way it collects manure.


Free up time


What would it be like if you had a couple of extra hours to ride every week?

The Paddock Blade collects horse manure in 30% of the time it takes to do it by hand, and the bigger your fields the more time you will save!

As well as saving time the Paddock Blade is a pleasure to use and turns an arduous chore in to something you may actually look forward to doing.

So if you’re spending several hours a week cleaning paddocks, a paddock cleaner isn’t just an investment in money, it’s a fairly big investment in time as well.


No maintenance costs

Paddock cleaners might be an investment, but for many of them, your outlay goes well beyond the initial purchase.

Maintaining moving parts and the cost of fuel and oil means you won’t see the end of your paddock cleaning expenses.

Luckily a tow behind manure collector like the Paddock Blade is virtually maintenance free, so you can keep using it year in, year out, only worrying about the fuel for your towing vehicle.

If you want to save on feed bills and vet bills, a paddock cleaner will help you maintain your paddock without sucking hours out of your week.

But if you want to do it cost-effectively, the Paddock Blade is one of the safest ways to get the most out of your pasture and your horse’s health.

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.
