What is EquiGym Doing Different ?

EquiGym has installed a Water Misting System for the top of the belt in order to keep the horses feet cool from friction. The misting also keeps the top of the belt clean, thereby increasing its life extensively.

The Belt slides across an anti-heat, anti-friction plate with six custom made shock absorbers under the plate to stop the “slap-back” effect after the impact of each hoof.

EquiGym’s high speed treadmills do not have as much concussion as a horse travelling at racing speed on the track with a rider on board, therefore, they are an excellent re-hab tool as you can control how much concussion the horse gets by adding weight to their backs.

The Pulleys are structurally engineered and both dynamically and statically balanced to minimize vibration.

There is a battery operated, self lubricating system installed on each pillow block that hold the pulleys.

The Main Control Box is mounted on a wall near the motor and has a PLC keypad and a VFD Keypad that monitors the running status and efficiency of the machine. We can remotely adjust the VFD from our office in Lexington, KY, if needed.

Replacing the Belt has been made easy removing the four covers for the pillow blocks, collapsing the front pulley towards the back of the machine, from the top, then sliding the belt off toward the right side of the machine.

Adjusting the Belt done easily from the top of the machine, no need to climb underneath the treadmill anymore.

EquiGym will provide concrete pit designs for those interested in placing the traveling surface at ground level. We are also available for free consultation and have recommendations for building functional treadmill rooms.
