Reliable & Low Maintenance
No Belts to Burn
Many of you have seen the all-too-common picture of the old broke-down, belt-driven walker, sitting on someone's property, neglected, and being used as a makeshift clothesline! The problem is that belt driven systems are fundamentally flawed. Belts slip, break, stretch, and burn under heavy resistance, and are unreliable when used in an application such as a walker.
Priefert Walkers are driven by a planetary gearbox; every model of Walker from Priefert operates off of this revolutionary technology.
The Revolutionary Planetary Gearbox
Planetary gearboxes are noted for rugged and reliable service and can take the abuse belt driven systems can not. Planetary gears are even used to drive some of the most popular brand name earth-moving equipment on the market today. To insure maximum performance with minimum maintenance, Priefert starts with this technology as the driving force of each of our walkers.
Powerful & Versatile
Serious "Horse Power"
Priefert's Lead and Panel walkers are driven by a Siemens 3 horse power motor and you have the strength, speed, and torque to withstand 2000 pounds of downward pull while conditioning up to eight horses at once.
Walk up to 8 Horses at Once
Priefert Lead and Panel Walkers come with your choice of 4, 6, or 8 arms that vary in length based on the model you choose. The four-horse walkers have a diameter of forty feet; the six-horse fifty feet; and the eight-horse seventy feet.
All of Priefert's walkers are whisper quiet. In fact, we measured the decibel output of the walker and found that it produced only 60 decibels of noise. Imagine a seventy foot diameter, eight horse walker that produces less noise as your household clothes dryer!
Priefert offers two lines of control boxes to fit your needs. Our touchscreen control panel allows you to program automated workouts for your horses. With this added functionality, conditioning your animals can be more precise as time, speed, and direction are determined for each pre-set routine. Our standard push-button control box is also available and features large labeled buttons and a convenient timer with 3 preset time increments.
Handy Remote Control
The Lead and Panel walkers come standard with a handy wireless remote control. With it you can start, stop, and change speed as well as direction; all with the push of a button.
Every Priefert Walker is powder coated in our in-house facility using a durable architectural grade powder coat finish which will extend the life and beauty of your purchase for years to come. This electrostatically applied, baked-on finish is resistant to weather, rust, and chipping. Black is our standard stocking color, and orders in this color can be delivered within two weeks. All other colors require a 4-6 week lead time.
Industry Tested & Equine Safe
Draft Horse Tested - Draft Horse Tough
We have put all our walkers to the ultimate test and made sure they can handle even the most extreme abuse. The kind of abuse dished out by our famous Draft Horse Hitch the "Priefert Percherons".
The "Priefert Percherons" consist of 20 Percheron draft horses averaging 18.2 hands tall and weighing in at an average of 2200 lbs. That's roughly twice the size of a standard horse.
As the lead driver for the "Priefert Percherons", Jason Goodman knows the importance of keeping his athletes in peak condition. Together, Jason Goodman and the "Priefert Percherons" travel the country performing for some of the largest and most prestigious rodeos and equestrian venues in the world.
