The new stall cleaning machine design allows replacement of only the discrete components on the rare occasion one fails. This would be a motor, belt, flange bearing or crank, all of which are non-proprietary and can be replaced with local purchase. The whole idea of the hybrid machine is to increase reliability, lower maintenance cost and maintain the optimum sifting capability. I still offer the 15-day free trial and the three-year limited warranty.
I know this is a long explanation, but I hope this information helps you in your decision. I am anxious to build a stall cleaning machine for you and get you automated. A Shi*fter will pay for itself in just a few months in a 10 stall barn. We now offer only one model, the Deluxe Hybrid Woody shown here at $2249.00.
