The basis for this is a completely new concept. Since until now you could only work with a longer rake, it can take some time to get used to using a shorter rake with a handle. If you follow these simple tips, you will be able to make the most of your Speedskip and at the same time save your back and joints: 1. Stand sideways next to the Speedskip and lean on the long handle on the shovel to balance yourself. This will support and isolate your back, avoiding potential back strain. You should not stand behind the bucket and lean over! This will put too much strain on your back! Use the rake in your other hand to transport the material into the shovel. The rake has exactly the right length to exert the necessary pressure to remove the material while protecting your wrists, elbows, shoulders and back. The tines of the rake are made of a special carbon steel that is very strong and at the same time extremely flexible. This makes the rake feel like an extension of your hand, allowing you to work very precisely and remove only the manure without affecting the bedding material or the arena floor. This precision mucking out means that neither the good bedding material nor the arena floor ends up on the manure pile. In addition, the tines are very flexible and do not cause injuries if a horse accidentally steps on them. The rake is the result of an intensive research and development phase in which the handle was tested with different lengths. The result of these tests was clear: the longer the handle of the rake, the greater was not only the force required to remove the manure but also the strain on the wrists, elbows, shoulders and back. This becomes clear when you imagine playing tennis with a long racket: In order to hit the ball directly back over the net, you would have to exert a tremendous amount of force. Within a very short time, you can muck out very quickly and precisely with the rake and not only save a lot of time and energy but also preserve the bedding material.
