Manure pond aeration is not a new concept, with attempts offered for decades by several manufacturers. It appears that each generation was a copy of a previous attempt, with them all failing to fix their problems:
1. Heavy and Bulky equipment, needing specialized equipment to install and remove units for maintenance and cleaning.
2. High Maintenance requirements… requiring frequent removal and replacement.
3. Designed to allow stringy material to wrap around the drive shaft, requiring removal to cut off the material.
4. Other issues not discussed, for brevity…
Below: 4 Aeration devices that have been “retired”, due to the maintenance issues, and time consuming install/repair/reinstall process requiring heavy equipment.
PondLift equipment is DIFFERENT:
The design for StinkSTOPpers and Smlifts throw out all previous design concepts, with intense focus to perform WISE technology at the highest potential efficiency. Every piece and part utilized has a specific service goal for enhancing aerobic activity and keeping the entire pond in aerobic activity. Yet, StinkSTOPpers weigh less than 75lbs, and Smlifts are smaller/lighter yet! Each are easily moved by hand, and easily installed/moved/removed at ponds/pits. Due to the design, they are more powerful than earlier equipment, but use less power.
