New: manure robot Barn-E for solid floors

Clean up manure with the Barn-E. The Barn-E is particularly suitable for solid floors. The manure robot doesn’t push manure forward, but picks it up.

It effortlessly cleans modular floors, rubber floors and other types of solid floors. The Barn-E is available in 2 versions; the standard and the extra wide: 155 cm and 185 cm.

The Barn-E works autonomously. It uses transponder technology to find its way around the barn. While it moves through the barn, the robot collects manure from the floor at the front. The manure is then raised and stored in the manure container by a rotating infeed. When it completes its route through the barn, the Barn-E drives to the deposit point to unload the collected manure.

In total, the robot can process 370 to 500 litres of manure each time it completes a route through the barn, depending on the scraper width. What also makes it so useful is the rotating infeed, as the Barn-e can effortlessly clean barn floors with chopped straw, separated manure of sawdust in the cubicles.

The Barn-E can cover an unlimited number of routes. These routes can be checked and changed by the farmers via the JOZ Route Manager. You can open the application on smartphone or desktop via the JOZ access point in the barn. For the best Result JOZ recommends always cleaning solid floors every 2 hours.

Animal-friendly & Tranquality
The Barn-E has rounded corners, and the side arms help it keep floors cleaner and maintain a sufficient distance from the cubicle edge and the cows in the cubicles. The robot makes no noise and because of the low speed (6.5 meters per minute) the cows can detect the manure robot easily and anticipate its movements.
