The resistance of the chain makes these free stall alley systems a solid value.
System designed to clean small to medium size barns
7/8” (22 mm) and Pintle chains Systems
A free stall cleaner system with chain can be used to clean two or four alleys. It consists of a drive unit equipped with a sprocket that drives the chain. One scraper in each alley is connected to the chain and moves in the same time to bring the manure from one end to the other. The 16°, the V-Shape and the Straight scrapers are all available with the chain system.
1/2” (13 mm) chain
Free stall cleaner system with 1/2” (13 mm) chain is designed to operate effectively in small to medium size dairy farms. This system distinguishes itself with its compact vertical chain drive unit and the high quality fabrication of the ½" (13 mm) chain.
Two type of ½" (13 mm) chain available:
Classic Chain Grade 100: 36 to 46 Rockwell C – Good hardness, and good resistance to wear.
HD-Pro Chain Grade Ultra: 55 to 60 Rockwell C – Exceptional hardness that contributes to limit wear to minimum.
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.
The Hydraulic Free Stall Cleaner system is well suited to clean one alley, multiple alleys of different length or uneven number of alleys using a single power unit. It is the perfect option for small barns that do not use sand bedding and where the length of the alleys does not exceed 200 feet (61 m) or 250 feet (76 m) when the cross gutter is in the middle of the barn.
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.
To handle manure containing a lot of straw.
Best suited when space is limited at the drop point as the scraper is straight and shorter.
The V-Shape Scraper is best suited to clean narrow alleys or when manure dries fast.
