Porky’s Pick Up carcass trolley - for fattening pigs

Awarded gold and patent pending.

Porky ́s Pick Up is a self-propelled device for the transport of carcasses. The user takes Porky’s Pick Up cadaver trolley directly to the animal inside the pen. The electrical pick-up rollers pull the animal onto the vehicle at the touch of a button. The farmer steps on the footboard and swiftly leaves the pen. At the carcass disposal site he unloads the animal carcass by actuating the backwards rotating rollers. There is no need to touch the animal throughout the entire process and all of it without any physical strain.

This simple, yet efficient concept for carcass transport has convinced the DLG and they awarded Porky's Pick Up the EuroTier gold medal in 2014. Porky's Pick Up has been registered for patent.

 

Medalled benefits.

  • Hygienically optimal carcass disposal
  • Non-contact loading 
  • Loading by means of strong roller drives
  • No ground contact until reaching the disposal site
  • Very ergonomic use, no back strain
Worth gold to the DLG committee: Porky's Pick Up with footboard - the user can ride on the vehicle from the pen to the cadaver disposal site!

Robust and durable design.

The carcass trolley’s chassis is splash-proof and made of corrosion resistant aluminium.  Therefore it is easy to clean the device. Porky's Pick up is equipped with 26 cm pneumatic tyres, turns around its own axis and can even surmount stairs. The width of only 56 cm makes it suitable for use in small pens and narrow passages.

Operation of the device is simple and intuitive. After turning on the main switch it takes only two buttons to operate Porky's Pick Up. Travel speed is infinitely variable and allows very smooth starting and stopping

Medalled benefits.

  • Electrical drive, power supply by rechargeable battery
  • Intuitive, easy control
  • Robust and durable design
  • Suitable from piglets to fattening pigs
The dead animal is removed at the disposal site - similar to picking up with Porky's Pick Up by movement of the rollers.


profi 11/2014 published the following after a first field test.

„The EuroTier gold medal for an electrically powered carcass trolley? Some may wonder when faced with such news since DLG gold is supposed to honour innovative inventions and leading new developments. What is innovative or ground-breaking and new about a carcass trolley? Here is the result of our exclusive field test:

This small self-propelled vehicle is really brilliant, and this is true for both idea and construction. After our first experience and assessment we have to say that it is perfectly okay for this trolley  to be awarded with the gold medal. The carcass trolley does not only facilitate this rather unpleasant  job, it also prevents insidious accidents and protects the farmer against contagious diseases since it allows the transport of animals without having to touch them.“

  • Self-propelled carcass trolley Porky’s Pick up
