Stable cleaning tool

A DUAL ACTION
MULTI-TOOL
FOR THE EQUESTRIAN MARKET

We created a prototype stable cleaning tool to be lightweight and have several purposes.  The multi-tool was designed for the equestrian market and aims to be a useful companion for any horse owner. 

The teeth on the head are designed to fit the grooves of most common horseboxes, allowing the user to remove any trapped dirt from the flooring. Once the dirt is loosened, simply flip to the brush and sweep up the mess. It can also be used to prep and clean stables, breaking up and spreading shavings bales with ease. This product helps to speed up a wide range of tasks and in turn, reduces the number of tools needed for the job. A comfortable, lightweight and efficient tool for horse owners everywhere.

 

SPACING OF TEETH DESIGNED TO FIT ANY TRAILER MAT

A range of different prototypes were produced to test different aspects of the design of the stable cleaning tool throughout the development stage. These aided us in defining details such as the ergonomics of the handle and tooth spacing therefore helping to thoroughly refine the concept. 

Prototyping allowed us to fully test the product in context so we could assess its functionality and durability.  This helped refine the design before our customer invested in manufacture to take the final product to market.
