“Super” mobile and small car transportable.

Tokyo – Thoroughbred

NEW MODEL

Horse Weigh announces the new mini-Tokyo Thoroughbred model.
89.50kg is the new weight, including the ramps and guide rails
19.50kg is the weight of each end piece.
14.0kg is the weight of the middle section.
This model has had extensive trials with a U.K. feed firm weighing all shapes and sizes of horses including one at 850kg. Their Health and Saftey department have endorsed the new model as not only is it easier to carry but it also fits neatly on the back compartment of an estate car leaving the back seats and front seats as protection from any forward movement in an accident.
With this new design there is no tipping of the platform even though the dimensions are smaller than the standard Tokyo model.
The dimensions of the standing area are: 1.870m x 0.850m (73.5″ x 33.5″)

Introduction

The Tokyo – Thoroughbred, and the new mini Tokyo thoroughbred have been designed specifically so they can be transported in the back of the smallest of cars.

It differs from the Tokyo model, in that it has been specifically designed for the Thoroughbred & Arabian breeds, for their breeding, racing and rehabilitation operations. UK trials, carried out on a racehorse rehabilitation yard, have shown that even the horses with the most unpredictable temperaments or demeanours, walked straight onto this model, and were very relaxed during the whole weighing process.

The new mini Tokyo-Thoroughbred has been designed to make sure all the components are comfortably under 20kgs so that only one person can manage all the transportation and lifting. It is 22% lighter and 23.93% smaller in area than the Tokyo-Thoroughbred Standard model.

Reports back from the UK trial, also indicated that the two ramps & two side guide rails made all the difference.

  • The horse did not have to pick up its foot at all, when walking onto the entry ramp, and walking off was much more “horse friendly” with the exit ramp
  • The two guide rails made the horse feel much more secure, and therefore it was not minded in trying to step off the platform, during the weighing process
  • Locating the platform next to a wall or fence, very much aided the whole walking-on process for the horse
  • The design mimicked that of a starting stall at the races, which make a horse feel secure and safe, thus eliminating any fear or panic that the horse may have

Other intended uses may well be for the feed, worming or pharmaceutical sales teams, or even the consultants for these companies. This product is also useful to the “very mobile” vet, as he / she needs to have their weighing platform with them at all times, as they travel from client to client. Also it can easily be taken by the trainers of the “International globe trotting” racehorses, as they travel their horses around the globe to race at the “high profile” races; the Tokyo can quite easily be taken on the plane with the horse, as some of the International race courses still do not have their own weighing platforms.
