Clean Sweep For Hog Houses
Faster, easier cleaning of hog houses is promised with "clean sweep", a new idea in cleaning concrete hog floors and slats from All Phase Electronics, Scott City, Kan.
"Regardless of how much manure there is on the concrete, or how dry or hard it is, this machine will scrape it clean without having to add any water or other softening agent," says Don Whitson, inventor-manufacturer.
Clean Sweep (21 in. wide and 20-in. dia.) is a combination of 12 cutting knives and nylon brooms powered by a 2 hp. electric motor. It digs and sweeps hard, dry manure from pen floors toward the slats. Cutting depth of the knives is adjustable. All parts are water tight. The rotating knives and brooms are controlled with a deadman switch and are shielded for safety, the manufacturer points out.
Built for tough jobs, the machine weighs 240 lbs. and runs on 240 volts A.C. The machine can also be used to sweep grain off concrete floors.
Suggested retail is $1,895.
