  • Performance varies according to installation, manure consistency, quantity and type of bedding - Water addition may be required and straw bedding up to 40 lb per milking cow per day.

Working Principle

During the siphoning cycle (up stroke) the pressure coming from the hydraulic power unit goes through the reversing valve which redirects it first to the discharge guillotine to close it then, to the intake guillotine to open it and finally, to the main piston to stroke upward and fill the evacuation chamber with manure.

During the evacuation cycle (down stroke) the hydraulic pressure closes the intake guillotine and opens the discharge guillotine. Once both guillotine cylinders have reached the end of their stroke, the pressure reaches the upper part of the main piston cylinder to evacuate manure.

Hydraulic Power Unit

  • 5 or 7.5 HP (5.5 or 3.7 kW).
