Hippodung-Combimulcher by Platz-Max

Let dung become fertilizer again

We believe grazing land to be the most important aspect in a health horse.

To sustain the precious pastures and to even enhance their quality we developed the Hippodung-Combimulcher by Platz-Max.

With its unique system of mulching grass and horse dung while simultanouesly sprinkling the mulched material with the Weideaktivator we maintain pastures in a labour-saving, costefficient way, while working sustainably and environmentally-friendly.

Let you and your horses be convinced by the possibilities our new system of pasture maintenance has to offer.

Problems with pastureland

  • too small and therefore „overgrazed“ fields
  • parasites
  • weed-growth and increase of rank patches
  • high effort regarding manpower and machine power for pasture maintenance
  • use of expensive artificial fertilizer and pesticides which are critical for the environment; reseeding with often exotic grass

The solution: Hippodung-Combimulcher

  • substitutes the removal of horse droppings
  • saves time mulching grass and horse dung while simultanouesly sprinkling the mulched material with a natural composting promoter
  • promotes the eco-friendly composting of green cuttings and horse droppings to natural fertilizer
  • produces a healthy soil biology which results in a resistant and fast-growing turf, replaces weeds and leads to high-quality forage
  • no parasites and putrefaction through composting
