Tow and Collect – 1220

Return to Previous Page

The brushes rotate when the machine is pulled along. The 1220mm wide pickup and easy-to-empty 500 litre (130 gallon) catching hopper means you can fit approx. 3-4 wheelbarrow loads in before you need to empty. This little machine is suitable for anything up to 10 horses or alpacas. Hitch the Tow and Collect 1220 to your ATV, quad bike or small tractor and you are ready to tidy your pastures the easy way. The large chunky tires gives the 1220 the traction to drive the brushes, and will be effective in pastures up to 4”-5” (125mm) long. If you don’t like fuelling another engine or having to deal with motors, the 1220 is the machine for you. It is our most ‘green’ machine which is also the simplest. Even without an engine, the 1220 is 8x faster than a typical vacuum machine. This is due to its constant collection system not requiring you to start and stop at each manure pile, just drive over it and the manure disappears – it’s that simple. Because of the constant sweeping motion of the brushes, it also removes the thatch and dead grass from your pasture – something a vacuum does not do. By removing this, it promotes live grass growth and allows the pasture to gain more of the needed nutrients and sunlight to survive.

1 review for Tow and Collect – 1220

  1. 5 out of 5

    I received my new 1220 Tow and Collect machine two weeks ago and put it through its paces.
    If I have one word to summarise its performance – BRILLIANT!
    I have a Thoroughbred Breeding Farm on the Central Coast of NSW with 13 Horses who each drop on average 10 pads per day …. that’s a lot of horse manure and a big test for the 1220 Tow and Collect. I had previously tried several engine driven machines that vacuumed or picked up manure with mixed success. The 1220 Tow and Collect towed by a Kubota RTV, performed remarkedly well with no engine noise (no need for ear muffs). The brushes are driven by a cog on one of the wheels. The 1220 is more manageable in the corners and picked up manure and dead thatch efficiently. The best part is the ease in dumping the manure. I do not need my husband to help me anymore, shouting out instructions and helping me with the unloading process. On completion, I give the 1220 a good hosing down and I am ready for the next manure run. It’s the best solution in the market by far!
