More and more poultry growers are discovering how easy and inexpensive it is to maintain a broiler or turkey house with one machine that practically anyone can operate. The Poultry Housekeeper removes feathers and caked or wet litter in less time than you ever dreamed possible.
Remaining litter is quickly aerated to reduce ammonia fumes and drying time. Litter removed from the house can either be stockpiled or spread while new litter can be loaded and distributed inside the house.
The simple one-man operation is the easy cost-effective solution to litter management in the new millennium.

The #2 Housekeeper was designed with the 1-3 house growers in mind. The #2 requires only a minimum of 40 horsepower for proper operation and is extremely durable. Optional equipment is available for spreading and the #2 can also be configured as a total hydraulic machine. Truly a workhorse machine with big machine features. The #2 is perfect for tighter house dimensions and lower tractor horsepower.
The #3 is the big brother to the #2 and requires a minimum of 50 hp tractor. The #3 has 33% more capacity than the #2 and can also be configured with several available options.
The #3.5 is the same machine as the #4 but in a lower profile to accommodate houses with lower ceiling heights.
The #4 Housekeeper is designed to increase productivity by an additional 20% above the #2 and #3 due to the wider head on the machine. This allows for much faster operation and requires a minimum of 60hp for the tractor. Like all other models, the #4 can be customized with various options to meet the individual needs of the grower.
The #5 Housekeeper is the most versatile model. The #5 comes equipped with the patented ‘quick change’ conveyor system that allows the operator to adjust and control the amount of material to be removed. Adjustment is simple and takes only a couple of minutes to change from caking to total cleanout. The #5 is also available in a low profile version (#5LP). Both models of the #5 may be equipped with optional tandem axle to afford a smoother ride.
The Model 5LP has all the same innovative features of the #5, but with a ‘low-profile’ design for lower ceiling height applications.
Fast, simple operation when stockpiling is needed. The DB-1 has the same capacity and horsepower requirements as the #2 and makes cleanout faster with the dumping feature. Total cleanout may also be accomplished by adding the optional solid bars to the conveyor.
The DB-2 Housekeeper has the same features as the #5, only without the spreading option. The DB-2, with its cost saving features and durability, has become the machine of choice for today’s grower.
Like the #5LP Housekeeper, the DB-2LP is a low profile model that has all the features of the full size DB-2.
The DB-4 is the dump version of the #4 Housekeeper and can handle the harshest conditions. The DB-4 is a favorite in the turkey industry and a real workhorse under the roughest of conditions.
