Rope Scraper for Solid and Slatted Floors

The Cowcare Rope Scraper, introduced to the UK market in 1998 remains No.1 in both UK sales and reliability.

This simple yet highly robust installation, features two drive units per system, powered by 0.55kw geared motors.  The heart of the system is our specially formulated Ultra-Glide rope. Even after all these years, no other rope has been proven to out-perform our Ultra-Glide rope.

Key benefits of Ultra-Glide Rope

  • No adverse effect on cows feet
  • Out-performs all other ropes
  • Excellent resistance to wear and tear

Drive units can be wall or ground mounted depending on layout, making this system the ideal choice when retro-fitting your existing buildings.

Scraper options

  • Pro-Diamond slat scraper blade : designed for superior cleaning, features diagonal blade
  • Pro-Scrape two direction : rubber scraper for two direction scraping requiring dump tank at both ends
  • Opti-Clean solid passage scraper : efficient scraping for solid floors
  • Combi-Scrape folding blade : folding scraper for drive-through feed passages

Trojan Scraper for Sand Bedding Installations

For over 10 years we have avoided sand installations, due to the documented high failure rate of Chain and Hydraulic systems in this application.  In 2009 we carried out a R&D project to assess the viability of creating the first UK built system, designed primarily for sand.

The result of this R&D was the introduction of the Trojan Sand System.

Our main remit was to create a simple yet hard-wearing system that can be maintained by the customer. After two years of tireless on-farm trial work, both performance results and farmer feedback indicated that it was a resounding success.

The Trojan Sand system utilises the tried and tested drive units from our Rope Scraper, powered by 0.55kw geared motors.

Due to the increased wear from the sand, the Trojan Sand System uses Pro-Glide. This rope offers a more cost effective solution to the customer.  As standard we expect the system to require new pull rope every 4000 scrape cycles with back ropes lasting around 6000 scrapes.

Key benefits of Pro-Glide

  • Excellent resistance to sand
  • No adverse effect on cows feet
  • Cost effective replacement cost

In all sand applications we prefer to install wall mounted drive units. This reduces the contact between the winch equipment and the highly aggressive sand  thus increasing service life.

Scraper options

  • Opti-Clean HDS solid passage scraper – fitted with sand wear plates.

Titan Rope Scraper

The Cowcare Titan Rope Scraper was introduced as a result of increased passage lengths in the modern dairy unit.  Designed and engineered for performance, the Titan Rope Scraper system is capable of up to four passages per system, and passage lengths in excess of 200m.

The built in Opti-sense is the most advanced scraper safety system, resulting in unrivalled protection for livestock in the building, and accurate stopping of the system.

Highly robust installation features a Single Capstan drive system, powered by 0.55kw geared motor.  This system offers the choice of Pro-Rope or Deltex, the latest development in rope technology.

Key benefits of Titan Cable

  • 10mm & 14mm diameter cow friendly stainless steel or galvanised cable.
  • Excellent performance in all weather / seasonal conditions
  • No movement / stretch after several months under permanent tension

The Capstan drive unit is always ground mounted. This compact drive unit has been designed for ease of maintenance and allows the replacement of cable without the need for tools.

Scraper options

  • Pro-Diamond slat scraper blade : designed for superior cleaning, features diagonal blade
  • Pro-Scrape two direction : rubber scraper for two direction scraping requiring dump tank at both ends
  • Opti-Clean solid passage scraper : efficient scraping for solid floors
  • Combi-Scrape folding blade : folding scraper for drive-through feed passage

SRone is a scraper robot designed specially to clean slatted floors. It pushes and scrapes tirelessly, easily traversing long passageways and connecting walkways as well as getting into corners and edges to ensure clean, slurry-free surfaces. This reduces the risk of infection, guarding against hoof diseases and mastitis, and generally promoting the health of the animals.

The SRone moves noiselessly between the animals without causing any agitation. In fact, quite the opposite. The cows take to it right from the start. Flat and compact, the SRone moves smoothly under gates and carries out its work without supervision. The safety switch is particularly animal-friendly. As soon as the pushing threshold is exceeded, it stops forward movement and starts an obstacle-avoidance manoeuvre.

The SRone reliably ensures good shed hygiene by automatically cleaning the cow passageways. And when it comes to the bottom line, healthy animals produce more milk at less cost!

Thanks to the high-performance batteries which operate for up to 19.5 hours a day, a quick-charge concept of 4.5 hours and a weight of 400 kg, this small muscle man can clean between 6,000 and 8,600 square meters of barn surface up to eight times per day. When cleaning corners, edges and angles it is particularly agile and quiet. The SRone can turn around completely within 2m. It has a pushing force of up to 100 kg. An integrated safety circuit ensures that forward movement is stopped when there is an obstacle in the path and that an avoidance manoeuvre is immediately instigated.

Your benefits at a glance:

  • Optimum barn hygiene in all slatted passageways
  • Healthy feet, well conditioned animals = reduced treatment costs
  • Extremely agile robot cleans corners, edges and angles
  • Able to handle loads of up to 100 kg with integral safety switching
  • Animal-friendly design ensures immediate acceptance by the cows = stress-free atmosphere in the barn
  • Low-maintenance, long service life technology = low maintenance costs
  • Quick rubber lip replacement = only a few manual steps to remove the scraper
  • Saves work time and effort

Our diagonal steel slats which are manufactured from high quality steel and fully galvanised are designed to be used above slurry channels and at the end of scraper passages. They are more expensive than concrete slats but are 4 times more effective at removing slurry from the passage.

For added cow safety we can provide a steel tread plate finish to increase grip for livestock.

Lift up doors are also available.
