HorseHopper

Well-cared for paddocks lead to healthy horses!


Better hygiene and optimised paddock use
The most effective means of better paddock hygiene is ensuring the regular collection of all horse droppings. Raking paddocks just distributes the excrement along with any parasites and the proportion of rank grass patches is increased. The HorseHopper neatly mows down rank grass patches, including metre-high thistles, and collects them along with the horse droppings, allowing for more intensive use of the paddock.


Advantages of the HorseHopper:

  • Collecting horse droppings
  • Mowing of rank grass patches and thistles
  • Mowing grass and collecting
  • Scarifying and collecting
  • Collecting leaves

Compared with either rotary or cylinder mowers, the HorseHopper operates reliably as a fine flail mower, even at significantly increased cutting heights, thanks to its design. The HorseHopper provides a superb cutting performance in both short and long grass.

Mähen und Mulchen

Mowing and mulching

Effective mowing on wet or dry, short or long grass!


The AMAZONE mowing and scarifying system
The HorseHopper does a superb job in nearly all climatic or vegetation conditions. Its well-proven AMAZONE mowing and scarifying system is the guarantor for well-groomed lawns. Whether the sun is shining or the early morning dew is still on the grass – work can begin. The HorseHopper is not bothered whether the grass is wet, exceptionally tall or even thick – and it always achieves first class results. Its large rotor and tolerance of foreign objects makes it the ideal tool for the extensive maintenance of large lawns.

The combination of reversible mowing blades and sharpened wing cutting blades offers the well balanced combination of little wear and of excellent mowing and collecting performance. Cuttings are finely shredded by the blades. This reduces composting time.



  • Simple tool-less changeover to mulching
    The HorseHopper can be used without collecting for the first pass, so that seeds and nutrients can return to the ground. A second pass a few weeks later will further process the clippings, working the important nutrients back into the soil helping to enrich it.

The HorseHopper combines the advantages of all mowing methods


  1. Mowing
    consists in cutting the blade of grass with a cutting device. The aim is to limit its growth. This operation therefore has to be performed regularly.
  2. Sickle mowing
    is a process, in which the plant is cut off completely at its base with a cutting device. A further operation is required to process the clippings produced into a more manageable length.

Mowing and shredding

The AMAZONE HorseHopper cuts the plant at its base and then chops it into several pieces which are either gathered up or allowed to fall to the ground. It combines the advantages of mowing and sickle cutting systems in a single machine. The AMAZONE HorseHopper can be adapted to your lawn maintenance requirements.

Scarifying

Upgrade your lawn care


Why scarify?
The natural growth of a lawn can be hindered by the formation of lawn thatch. Tight mowing intervals without collecting, a poor rotting of leaves and the remainder of clippings or the formation of moss all serve to suffocate the lawn; they prevent water, nutrients and air from getting into the soil and reaching the roots.

The AMAZONE HorseHopper removes and collects lawn thatch from your lawn in a single process.

Easily disposes of lawn thatch and moss

The soil structure can be improved and renewed by carrying out trouble-free scarifying with the AMAZONE HorseHopper. Scarifying blades, fitted to the rotor penetrate 1 to 2 mm into the turf, breaking up the upper earth layer, cutting off parasitic plants and thinning out the lawn surface. Lawn thatch is combed out, collected and simultaneously the soil is rolled. The combination of mowing and scarifying blades produces an outstanding suction effect.

Collecting

Clean up your lawn quickly and efficiently


One machine for all applications!
The powerful suction effect captures almost “everything” (leaves, chestnuts, acorns, etc.). This ensures optimum utilisation of the hopper capacity. In addition, the chopping up of the leaves by the rotating blades speeds up their decomposition. Often in the spring, autumn leaves remain covering the ground and the grass can only grow with difficulty. To improve and aid that grass growth, those leaves can be collected and the lawn aired in a single pass by simply adding the scarifying blades.

Designed for efficiency!

The rotor’s high rotational speed plus the combination of sharpened wing blades and scarifying blades make the HorseHopper a highly efficient means of collecting, even in damp conditions. The robust SmartCut exact cut rotor makes short work of foreign objects.

SmartCut exact cut rotor

Outstanding cutting and collecting quality

The rotor has a large diameter and produces an air stream which gives the AMAZONE HorseHopper an extremely high collecting capacity. The 2,650 rpm rotational speed of the rotor ensures a first-class mowing performance.

Ingenious: Mowing – Scarifying – Collecting – Emptying

The HorseHopper’s first-class cutting and collecting performance is based on its SmartCut exact cut rotor. An outstanding feature of the SmartCut exact cut rotor is its special, V-shaped blade arrangement, which reduces energy consumption and noise. For this innovation, AMAZONE was awarded a Silver Medal by the Innovations Jury at Demopark 2013.

Due to the high suction effect provided by the SmartCut rotor, the HorseHopper can also be used for collecting mown grass, leaves, debris, acorns, chestnuts, etc.

The benefits of the SmartCut rotor, with its V-shaped blade arrangement are obvious in comparison with the rotor technology so far, where the cutting blades are arranged linearly in rows. Because the knives, when arranged in a V-shape, do not pass the shear bar simultaneously but in very short intervals one after the other, they convey the cut material better in the direction of the rotor centre, resulting in less lateral air turbulence and, because of this, in an additional improvement in the collecting performance.
