Healthier horses thanks to improved paddock hygiene with the Horse-Hopper.

The HorseHopper from AMAZONE carries out these tasks comfortably and reliably. A universal machine with a working width of 1.35 m to 2.10 m which can also be attached to a small tractor and does everything in a single pass: mowing, aerating, cutting and simultaneous collection of the cuttings and horse droppings.

The HorseHopper is equipped with wing blades and scarifying blades for the collection of wet cuttings mixed with horse droppings. The scarifying blades loosen the horse droppings from the turf. During mowing, the wing blades convey the horse droppings to the hopper together with the cuttings. The grass catcher can be emptied outside the paddocks by pulling a cable and the grass composted. The HorseHopper can be equipped with hydraulic emptying as an option.

A hopper capacity from 1,350 l to 3,500 l with high lift discharge and working widths from 1.35 m to 2.10 m enable coverage of large surface areas. Above all else, its versatility makes the Groundkeeper the ideal professional machine, be it for mowing, scarifying, mulching or collecting leaves and other rubbish.

More Info


Anyone who needs professional equipment for maintaining parks, sports facilities or golf courses will find exactly what they are looking for in the Amazone machine range. AMAZONE SA in Forbach, France, has been manufacturing equipment for mowing, collecting and scarifying as well as spreaders for winter road gritting for half a century. The latest new development from Forbach is our Profihopper PH 1500.

The plant had very humble beginnings. In 1970, Amazone decided to set up a new location in France, the largest market for agricultural machinery in Western Europe. An old factory in Forbach directly on the border across from Saarbrücken was the ideal solution and so Amazone purchased it from an Italian-born building contractor named Cellentano. Favourable conditions were the decisive factor here: The premises had their own rail connection and were conveniently located close to the motorway heading towards Metz and Paris. In addition, there was a great deal of industrial know-how in the Lorraine region due to the mining industry there. The location was right on the border and so made it easy to hire German and French-speaking staff and the plant soon began producing its own range of products. Amazone gradually transformed the old factory halls into a modern production plant with its own administration and sales department.

Starting with only two hectares of land and around 8,000 m² of production halls, the location steadily grew. In 1983, Amazone also purchased the adjacent premises to the east from a forwarding company, thereby acquiring additional warehouses and another 10,000 m² of hall space. Today, enough space still remains for further expansion, if required. In 1999, an additional prefabrication hall was constructed and in 2005, a modern paint shop with dip tank and kiln hardening facility was set up.

Meanwhile, the workforce has grown to more than 70 employees, all of whom have become committed, wholehearted members of the extended Amazone family. On-site Managing Director Patrice Franke is supervised by Management Board member Ludger Braunsmann from the headquarters in Gaste.
