The manure is collected, not pushed. The robot was specially developed for solid floors but can also be used on fixed surfaces and slatted floors in mixed farm settings. The manure is propelled into the 450-litre collection container at the back of the machine via a screw rotor that converges in the middle. The 70-litre water tanks ensure the manure is moist enough to be reliably collected off the surface at the front. The nozzles on the back prevent the floor from becoming slippery. You also have the option to automatically mix in liquid additives to reduce emissions and odours (products must be approved by HETWIN).
High-quality materials such as stainless steel guarantee guarantee a long service life. The robot finds its way autonomously thanks to the latest sensor technology. It uses the rotary encoders in its drives along with a handful of reference magnets embedded into the ground.
The robot's 1.8-m-wide scraper blade ensures only a few trips are required per aisle and the animals experience minimal stress. At only 0.68 m in height, the robot can easily pass underneath the partitions in the shed. Creating routes / operating the robot on your PC, tablet or mobile is a piece of cake. The parking and charging position also serves as the discharge point for the manure. To empty the manure, you open the flap underneath the collection tank and the contents fall out below.
