Free Stall Alley Cleaner with Cable

Free stall cleaner system designed for long barns requiring frequent cleanings.

A free stall cleaner system with cable can be used to clean two, three or four alleys. The same drive unit controls all the scrapers. While one scraper is cleaning one alley, the other is backing up. The 16°, the V-Shape and the Straight scrapers are all available with the cable system. The main advantage of a cable system is the choice of several scraper configurations that allow cleaning of very long manure alleys.

SW Series Cable Drive Unit

The new SW Series cable drive unit has been designed to make your life easier – more freedom in installation location, effective operation and minimal maintenance. This unique design allows lateral movement of the drive as the cable is being wrapped around the rotating drum. The coiling is made without stress and without excessive friction – which is usually the cause of premature wear of the equipment and cable.

  • Lateral movement of the drive unit – is done by means of an angled rolling mechanism designed with extremely durable components. This movement allows the cable to remain well aligned. There is no side pressure as associated with the cable guides on traditional drive units, therefore minimizing cable wear and stress on the drive unit.
  • Easy access for maintenance and lubrication – with the timing chain located outside the main frame.
  • New external cable tie downs – located outside of the drum, they are more accessible and the cable is easily secured using two bolts.
  • Drum drive shaft mounted on high quality roller bearings – for long lasting durability and smooth operation.
  • More freedom in installation location – since the corner wheels can be installed very close to the drive unit without overlapping its footprint.
  • Easy to handle safety shield – made of light and durable plastic.
  • Opened and raised drive unit bottom – to ease cleaning and basic maintenance underneath the drive unit.
  • Double motor option | HD – on SW-300 and SW-450 models. Standard on the SW-650.

Steel Cable or Dyneema® Rope

Choice between two types of steel cable: galvanized (cheaper) or stainless (better corrosion resistance) steel cable of 3/8” (9.5 mm) or ½” (13 mm) diameter. Strong and durable, it is perfectly suited to very long manure alleys.

The Dyneema® rope of 7/16” (11 mm) is flexible, very light, and easy to install. It is perfectly suited to manure alleys less than 300 feet (91 m) in length. The Dyneema® ropes designed only for grooved alley and must be kept away from frost and sand.

Corner Wheels

Two sizes of 90° corner wheels are available: 16” (41 cm) and 21” (53 cm). A kit to convert a 90° corner wheel into 180° is available. They all come with tapered roller bearings for better resistance and longer life span.

Scraper - 16°

Scraper - 16°

Ruggedly built, the 16° Scraper cleans the alleys effectively. The 16° angle designed is for stabilizing the scraper. The manure is directed evenly toward the center where the pulling force is applied.

Scraper - Deep Groove System

Scraper - Deep Groove System

The deep Groove Scraper has been designed for alleys with a groove ranging from 4’’ (102 mm) to 10’’ (254 mm) deep. When using this scraper, the alley must be sloped towards the center. This allows the liquid to naturally drain out of the manure. The integrated toggling flat bar pushes solids contained into the groove towards the cross gutter.

Scraper - Under Floor Channel

Scraper - Under Floor Channel

The raised design of the under floor channel draw bar allows liquid manure to flow into a channel installed underneath the manure alley. The channel can be made of concrete, circular or rectangular, or corrugated PVC pipe. During the cleaning stroke, a portion of the manure runs into the channel and is pushed towards the cross gutter by means of the integrated paddle. When using this type of scraper, the alley must be sloped towards the center allowing the liquid to naturally drip out of the manure.

Scraper - V-Shape

Tube Scraper System

The opening in the draw bar allows manure and liquid to drain into the channel behind the paddle. This way, the paddle directs only the material from the previous cleaning stroke towards the cross gutter. A wheel positioned at the rear of the scraper pushes material into the tube to keep the groove free from any obstruction.
