Successful horse farms and, above all, breeding and training stables, today pay great attention to their external impact: a mo-dern, well-kept estate, clean stable alleys and stalls, healthy pastures and flat riding arenas are a „must“ for a good reputation. However, time and personnel for the time-consuming maintenance are a scarce factor everywhere.

Successful horse farms and, above all, breeding and training stables, today pay great attention to their external impact: a mo-dern, well-kept estate, clean stable alleys and stalls, healthy pastures and flat riding arenas are a „must“ for a good reputation. However, time and personnel for the time-consuming maintenance are a scarce factor everywhere.

More and more Canadian horse farms are therefore using the compact Weidemann Hoftracs®, wheel loaders and telehandlers. Whether mucking out in tight stall alleys and spreading straw or whether hay bales need to be lifted up under the roof, the agile machines take care of any work quickly.

Weidemann machines in use at 50,000 businesses
“I actually don’t know how we managed all those years without a Hoftrac®”, said a horse carer recently. He confirms a trend that Ma-nuel Meyer, Market Development Manager at Agriculture Canada at Weidemann, noticed over the past two years – the horse farms in Ontario and Quebec as well as the farmers are excited about the maneuverable and powerful Weidemann machines, which are in operation around the world on more than 50,000 farms. The Weidemann product ran-ge offers the right machine for every task. The compact Hoftracs® unfurl their strengths especially well in tight buildings and alleys, the wheel loaders are ideal for heavier tasks and when height is needed the telehandler comes into play.

Operator‘s canopy eps
The Hoftracs® from Weidemann offer a sophisticated solution for particularly low passages: The models 1140, 1160, 1280 and 1380 can be equipped with the fold-down operator‘s canopy eps (Easy Protection System). With a few hand movements, it is prepared for a low clearance height. Alternatively, it is possible to outfit the machine with an enclosed cabin with heater.

The multifunctional Hoftracs®
Features, such as a compact design, a low center of gravity and a small turning radius as well as a powerful performance determine the success of the Hoftrac® series. “Future-orien-ted farms with new stable buildings use Hof-tracs® as smart companions, as “workhorses” for many daily tasks on the farm. On smaller horse farms and on farms with older stables, the compact Hoftracs® impress with their narrow dimensions and their maneuverability.

Often no skid steer loader, which is actually a construction machine, can manage here,” says Manuel Meyer as he summarizes the experiences of Canadian customers. The reason for these positive experiences lies in the „DNA” of the Hoftracs®: They were designed in the 1970s for working in buildings with narrow doors and tight stable alleys and have been continuously enhanced since then – always with the priority of application in agriculture and on horse farms.

Versatile application areas
All models have a quickhitch system that can be used to easily couple to the variety of atttachments. In this way, the ground of the riding hall as well as the riding arena is planed, the material is moved for building obstacles during the tournament and the farm is mechanically swept after the work. Various attachments, such as buckets, tongs and grippers, make the recurring daily tasks ea-sier. With high quality, easy operability and a high level of ride comfort, the straw and feed for the animals is distributed by the Weidemann machine and the appropriate attachment. Combined with a fork & grab, the com-pact Hoftracs® are valuable helpers when it comes to mucking out the stable or stacking bales.

Valuable support for any season
Weidemann machines are used also even for cleaning and care of outdoor facilities. The front mower and special attachments can be used to mow pastures and collect horse droppings. The articulated steering machines always keep the business clean when equipped with a rotary sweeper, broom or high pressure washer. And when the ground must be cleared of snow or ice in the winter, the machine can be equipped with snowplows and rear-mounted spreaders.

There used to be no ideal mechanical solu-tion for a lot of tasks. In addition to saving a tremendous amount of time, physically strenuous work is now a thing of the past. To put it succinctly: A “Weidemann” is indispensable in the equine industry!
