Sandman grooming free stalls

Sandman & Sandman Low Profile Free Stall Groomer


Sandman and Sandman LP are designed to aerate, slope and groom free stall beds in one step. Sandman not only grooms it leaves the bed at the uphill slope that cows prefer to lay on. Raking is done at a walking pace allowing for quick preparation of the stalls. Many of our customers groom stalls daily, some groom with every milking.

Sandman's boom and rotary arm are hydraulically driven. The hydraulic boom allows the operator to lower the rotary arm between the stall loops into the bedding area. Once the boom is lowered the rotary motor is started. The operator adjusts the loader frame height so the rotary arm shovels make contact with the bedding area, then drives forward at walking speed. Sandman is able to work under the stall loops to groom and slope the bedding material.


  • Sloping the bed improves cow comfort
  • Sloping promotes proper cow placement within the stall
  • Proper cow placement puts manure in the aisle
  • Aeration dries bedding and reduces bacterial growth
  • Speeds up a labor intensive job and lowers costs
