Manure Vacuum

Manure Vacuum


Simple Manure Management

Simple Barn Design.

Barns no longer need to have an integrated manure handling system during construction. The Manure Vacuum replaces the need for pumps, augers, and concrete channels to transport manure from the barn to the storage lagoon or process facility.

Reduce Time Spent Cleaning Alleyways.

The Manure Vacuum cleans the alley in one pass. Allowing more time to properly fill and groom freestall bedding. In addition minimized time in the alleyway means reduced wear and tear on the equipment.

Rugged Durability.

The manure vacuum is manufactured from the highest quality of materials and components.

Reduce Expansion Cost.

With the manure vacuum, when a dairy expands their facilities there is no additional equipment to buy. The investment in the manure handling has already been made with a manure vacuum.

Flexible Farm Design.

With the ever changing regulations and restrictions manure systems are forced to change. The manure vacuum adapts to manure system changes.

Remote Manure Processing.

The location of a manure processing facilities is not limited to the ability to transfer the manure. The manure vacuum allows the transport of manure easily and reliably to anywhere on the dairy or even near by.


Scraper System

Patented Scraper System.

The scraper head has a spring centering pivot providing protection and safety to the machine and facilities. Also the scraper is equipped with shear bolts on the collection wings allowing the wings to fold around when striking an obstacle instead of causing costly damage.

Adjustable Down Pressure.

The scraper head has adjustable down pressure. This allows the scraper to peel up and vacuum dry pasty sand laden manure.

Collection Wings and Curb Skis.

The collection wings also have adjustable pressures that float the skis along the curb allowing the operator to focus on maneuvering the machine and not the scraper head.

Cleaner Barnyards.

The manure vacuum scraper cleans the alley ahead of the tires keeping the barnyards and roads cleaner.

Clean Manure Along Curbs.

Unlike pull type vacuums and automatic alley scrapers the manure vacuum uses its curb skis to slide along alleyway curbs removing bacteria infested manure. This stops the bacteria from growing and the cows from tracking this manure into the freestalls.


Vacuum Blower

Vac

Instant Suction.

The large vacuum blower allows the operator to have instant suction at the scraper head without waiting to build vacuum pressure on the tank.

Sand Laden Manure.

The powerful vacuum blower sucks up thick and heavy sand laden manure from dry cow and heifer barns.

Proven Reliability.

The domestic made vacuum blower is proven in many demanding and abusive industries such as oil fields, hydro digging, sewer cleaning trucks, and milking parlors.


Unloading System

Patented Unloading System.

A full length auger in the bottom of the tank allows for quick and easy unloading of all types of manure from sloppy wet manure to dry pasty sand laden manure.

Gate Valve.

The gate valve controls the rate of unloading for specific applications, like discharging into a sand settling lane, mechanical sand separator, or manure digester.

Quick Unloading.

Unloads 3000 gallons in approximately 50 seconds.

Vac

Operator Controls

Manure Vacuum Cab

Rugged Cab Construction.

The cab features military grade components for a long service life, with no controls on the floor to be damaged by corrosive manure and sand.

Excellent Visibility.

The cab features a large windshield and side windows for better visibility of the scraper head.

Precise Control.

The vacuum is controlled hydrostatically with a joystick for moving forward and reverse; this allows the operator to maintain engine rpm for vacuum speed while adjusting ground speed for different manure types.

Simple Operation.

The toggle switches lock into position for the scraper and collection wings; allowing the operator to focus on maneuvering the machine.


Maintenance

Low Maintenance.

The daily routine maintenance for the manure vacuum is as simple as a walk around inspection, greasing the scraper head and checking fluids.

Simple Maintenance.

The manure vacuum's functionality is kept simple so maintenance and repairs can be done on the farm to reduce any down time.

Quick Maintenance.

The scraper head is equipped with quick couplers and pins to easily change scraper heads for rubber replacement or overhaul maintenance on pins and bushings. In addition many grease fittings are equipped with remote hoses to make routine maintenance quick and easy.

Manure Vacuum

Maneuverability

Tight Turns.

Turning in cross alleys and around tight barns is effortless with the manure vacuum due to its small turning circle.

Four Wheel Steering.

The operator can select from either two wheel or four wheel steering modes.

Manure Vacuum Cross Alley Turn

Optional Equipment

Auxiliary Suction.

The auxiliary suction feature grants the vacuum the ability to be used to clean manure spills, watering troughs and runoff from silage storage.

Front Spreading.

The front discharge spreader allows you to spread slurry manure from the front of the vacuum.
