Innovative Shearing Industry Technologies
The Peak Hill Industries ShearEzy shearing system is a successful alternative to "on the board" shearing that eliminates the need to catch and drag sheep. The ShearEzy provides the shearer with a comfortable, "stand up," working environment and meets the highest standards in wool preparation and shearer safety technology.
Shearing sheep with an Upright Posture Shearing Platform (UPSP).
The loader clamps the sheep then tilts and inverts the sheep placing it on the platform. The sheep can be crutched in this restrained position then released from the clamp.
To shear the sheep, the rear legs are restrained as the sheep lies horizontal between the hinged up wings of the platform. Rotating leg restraints and the hinged wings allow the shearer to mechanically manipulate the sheep to each desired position through the shearing process. Optimal flat surfaces for the shearer allow long continuous blows around most of the body of the sheep.
Heiniger EVO anti-lock technology attached to a balanced boom and flexible drive improves safety and productivity.
New features of the 2012 version of ShearEzy include:
