I’m doing a bit of market research for an equine product manufacturer. It would be a great help to us if you could take a minute or so to read the following and give us your views.
The machine concerned is electrically-powered and is designed to aid mucking out a shavings bed. There's no need to just skip out, within a maximum of 10 minutes, though often less, you can give your stable a full muck-out and provide your horse with a clean bed everyday. For those currently using straw, our product makes a shavings bed more affordable, allowing you to switch from a high-waste style of bedding.
For protection purposes, I cannot reveal the exact design. However, it is being marketed on the basis of:
- It saves you time – Reduces mucking-out time by more than 50%.
- It saves you money – We estimate that, through the machine’s effective separation of dirty bed from clean bed, you could save at least a bag of shavings per horse per week.
- It saves you effort – The machine does all the work, which helps protect your back and makes the job much more preferable due to its lack of physical demand.
- It is simple to use.
- The separation system is thorough, much more so than if you were to do the work with a shavings fork.
The machine will retail at around £500. Due to the savings made on shavings, the product pays for itself but more importantly, you are relieved of a time-consuming task.
Thank you in advance for your assistance.
