Keeping paddocks clean during the winter months can be a soul-destroying job, but with spring just around the corner, it has never been more important to keep paddocks clean and free from parasites. Kylix vacuum paddock cleaners result in clean, well-kept paddocks for horse owners with no back-breaking work.
Many of the most common internal worm parasites in horses are ingested by eating contaminated pasture, and as the weather improves and horses get more grazing time, their exposure to parasite transmission increases. With resistance to anthelmintics now a real concern, horse owners are turning to more appropriate worm egg count monitoring, and keeping paddocks clean as part of a parasite control programme.
All paddock cleaners from Kylix are the most powerful in their class,using an advanced, hygienic vacuum system for picking up droppings quickly and efficiently whilst mulching it and aerating the muck allowing faster breakdown and compact storage.
Kylix’s mid-range machine – the Kylix Predator Cub II paddock cleaner is high-powered, lightweight and has an easy emptying device to enable it to be quick and effective. It can be towed by anything froma quad-bike to a ride-on lawnmower and has a simple hitch mechanism.
The Kylix Predator Cub II runs on a powerful 10HP Briggs and Stratton engine with an electric starter and a 6 litre fuel tank gives up to three hours running time. The powerful yet quiet engine is designed for heavy, prolonged workloads and has sustained vacuuming power to avoid the machine becoming blocked when large quantities of wet droppings are picked up.
Designed for use all-year-round, the Kylix Predator Cub II has wide turf tyres to protect the paddock even in very wet conditions. The polypropylene hopper has 0.75m² capacity and the ultra-light pick-up hose is gantry supported.
The Kylix Predator Cub II has a capacity for 1-5 horses and can also be used for picking up leaves and other debris. By using a vacuum paddock cleaner, horse owners can be confident that their paddocks are free from parasites, reducing the need for costly wormers. It also ensures less time is spent on chores, allowing more time for riding and training.
