The overall structural design of the 6 Horse Centaur Hot Walker consists of a 8 5/8″ X 1/4″ wall vertical upright shaft which has a chain drive reduction of 5 to 1. We use 100 chain with 1 1/4″ pitch.
The four support structures are made of 2 1/2″ X 2 1/2″ X 1/4″ heavy walled angle steel. The base legs are made of 2 1/2″ X 2 1/2″ square steel (1/4″ thick walls). The arms are 20’ long and are made of 3″X3″ 2 1/2″X 2 ½” tubing (1/4″ thick walls) with a quick release mechanism on each arm with a lead attachment for your horse. The walking diameter is 40 feet. Optional Upgrade to 60 feet.
The drive system is powered by a 2 HP motor, single phase 220 Volt. The walker speed is controlled by using a remote control panel. An infinite range of speeds can be reached by simply adjusting the control panel dial. The Hot Walker can go forward and reverse. Seeds can vary from a slow walk to a gallop or canter.
The walker is designed so that the main drive belts will slip at a predetermined amount of pull. The operator can change the amount of pull from practically zero up to almost 400 pounds. The arms are approximately 9’6″ above the ground which tends to minimize the problem of a rearing horse. The entire drive system is housed in a steel cover of 18 gauge. You have 20 colors to choose from. The unit is designed with your horse’s safety in mind.
The total weight of each unit is 1825 pounds; total height is 10’6″.
The working diameter is 40’.
Optional Upgrade: Working diameter of 60’ $1,000.00 plus tax.
