Loads of Options in a Compact Size!

The Rhino magnetic sweeper is an all terrain tow behind magnet ready for off road work. It’s extremely simple in its design, making it very durable and a popular choice of many commercial type users with large dirt areas to clean including horse arenas and farms, construction sites, and smaller landfills.

It’s popular not only because of it’s simple and effective design but because it has loads of options and features –  offered in three sweeping widths of five, six and seven feet wide and the ability to continuously adjust sweeping height from zero to five and a half inches.

You can also add accessories such as the Quick Clean Off Sleeve to allow very quick and easy clean off or add a Debris Digging Rake to dislodge embedded debris to aid in the pickup process.

It’s all the little extras, such as hitch height control and safety flags, that add to the Rhino’s popularity.

Dirt, grass, rough terrain… bring it on.

This is an awesome product...

"This is an awesome product that works very well and saves a lot on labor costs....we spent a couple of weeks trying many methods before we found our Rhino 60. I can honestly say that we accomplished more the first full day we had our Rhino 60 than we accomplished in over two weeks of intense effort prior to receiving the machine."

A Tow Behind Magnet built for severe duty.

The Rhino, known as the “Big Brother” of the HOG magnetic sweeper, is ready for some very severe duty conditions with a range of options and great off road features.

It’s a popular choice of many commercial type users with large dirt areas to clean such as horse arenas and paddocks, cow pastures, construction sites, and smaller landfill sites. 

The Rhino is ideal for keeping rough terrains and large areas free of dangerous metal debris because of it’s durable design, extra features.  And because it’s light enough to attach to any vehicle it is a quick and easy method for reducing flat tires and accidents and preventing animal injuries.

Use the Rhino towable magnetic sweeper when a hanging sweeper would interfere with normal operation of the vehicle or when areas are too large to use a handheld sweeper.

The Rhino is offered in three sweeping widths of six, seven and eight feet wide and it comes standard with the ability to continuously adjust sweeping height from zero to five and a half inches.

The optional accessories increase the effectiveness of this sweeper such as the Quick Clean Off Sleeve to allow very quick and easy debris clean off and the Debris Digging Rake to dislodge embedded debris to aid in the pickup process.

It’s all the little extra features that also add to the Rhino’s popularity, such as the adjustable hitch height so that when hitching the Rhino to a tow vehicle doesn’t matter what height the hitch is on the tow vehicle, the Rhino can still be held level for optimum performance. The safety flags also ensure high visibility when in use for safety, and some people use the safety flags as a convenient holder for the debris when the Quick Clean Off Sleeve is pulled off.

It’s the Rhino’s durability, range of options and all the little extra features that make the Rhino one awesome product.

Recommended Industry Applications

  • Construction Sites
  • Equine Facilities, Paddocks, Arenas
  • Smaller Landfills

Also good for:

  • Shipping & Trucking Facilities
  • Manufacturing Facilities

Adjustable Hitch Height

Adjustable hitch height so that when hitching the Rhino to a tow vehicle it doesn’t matter what height the hitch is on the tow vehicle, the Rhino can still be held level for optimum performance.

Adjustable Sweeping Height Control

Use the adjustable top link (gold coloured) located at the top of the sweeper to continuously adjust the sweeping height from 0 to 5 and 1/2 inches. Just twist the top link to change the sweeping height. Changing the sweeping height allows fine tuning of performance on a variety of terrains and conditions for optimum performance.

Long Lasting Pickup Power

The magnets are housed in a 4.5″ x 4.5″ aluminum housing and is very strong because they are packed end to end un-spaced with a metal backing plate to increase the size of the magnetic field and direct it downwards to increase pickup performance. The magnets are well protected from damage and require no maintenance or recharging.

It let's me sleep better at night

"This magnet has done a great job for us. It let's me sleep better at night knowing I'm picking up this material. I like the teeth on these because it gets a lot more of the nails and staples and shoe nails from the horses. It is kind of a pain to get it out of there but it does a good job scurrying up all the nails and everything."

Optional Quick Clean Off Sleeve

On site demonstration of the Quick Clean Off Sleeve.

The optional Quick Clean Off Sleeve accessory makes cleaning off the magnet easy. Just slide the Sleeve off of the unit and debris falls to the ground at the end of the magnet.
The Sleeve also helps protect the sweeper housing when hitting hard surfaces. The Sleeve is constructed out of durable PVC and molded to wrap around the magnetic housing. It locks in place and will not move when the sweeper is in use.

Now Available in New Design! – Extruded PVC Sleeve with Injection Molded End Pieces.

Optional Debris Digging Rake

The Debris Digging Rake accessory slips on over the tongue of the Rhino and disturbs the ground so hidden or embedded debris surfaces and is picked up by the magnet. The tines are spring loaded to flex while disturbing the surface of the earth. Steel tube construction. Installs in less than 3 minutes. Grooms and levels the soil as you clean up debris.

On Board Safety Flags

The orange safety flags ensure high visibility when in use for increased safety. They are also a handy debris catching device.  When the Quick Clean Off Sleeve is pulled off, the safety flags can be used as a convenient holder for the debris. Instead of debris falling onto the dirt a flag can be used to catch the debris.

Additional Features

  • Easy tow behind magnet. Attach to ATV’s, tractors, mowers or utility vehicles.
  • Available in 5, 6 and 7 foot sweeping widths.
  • Available with optional Quick Clean Off Sleeve and Debris Digging Rake.
  • High visibility orange safety flags to increase safety.
  • Permenantly charged magnets.
  • Flat proof 13 inch by 6 ½ inch Carlisle tires to ensure continued operation no matter how bad the debris situation is.
  • Maximum Lifting height – 8 ½” (using a two and a half inch nail).

Works Great

Works great, we have a lot of rock so I figured if I push it I have better idea of what's happening.


Thanks Mike.

definitely more than what we expected

Product SKU: RH86

Everything is working great on the Rhino. It is definitely more than what we expected. I am very happy with the magnet. I watched a video of a guy going through a grassy field and knew it would be perfect for us since we have a gravel lot. It sits high enough off the ground where it doesn’t bottom out and is powerful enough to still pull nails and other metal up. It is very heavy duty and should last a long time. Light enough to pull with a golf cart. Thank you

by Jerry Rolfe - Layton Construction on Rhino
We are impressed.
Industry: Construction
Location: Wyoming, USA
Product SKU: RH62

We are impressed. While constructing a prison in Eastern Wyoming, we were faced with a difficult task. After two years of construction activity, there was a lot of metal debris embedded in the soil in the lay down areas, the field fabrication shops, and some of the work areas. This is not acceptable as this type of debris could possibly be used as a weapon by the inmates that will soon reside here. We tried the following methods to get the metal up and each met with limited success.



1. We tried dragging a magnet over the surface. It got what was on top but little else.



2. We tried running forks of a large forklift through the sand at an angle, in an attempt to snag buried items and turn the soil over to bring materials to the top so we could pick these items up with the magnet. It helped but not enough. Part of the problem was that the forks would lift the sand and the materials up toward the surface and then run over the soil before we could drag a magnet across the area.



3. For our next trick, we used angle iron and rebar to construct a rake type of device that we could attach to the forks and use to turn the sand and bring up debris. Again, it helped but not enough. We then used the same method and our homemade rake and added a magnet that could drag across the exposed debris as soon as it was exposed. Again it helped but not enough. The items were picked up by the magnet and promptly knocked off the magnet by the sand we were dragging the magnet across.



4. We tried using five men, a metal detector and rakes and shovels to find and remove metal debris. Given enough time and manpower, this would have got the job done but it was very expensive and way too slow.



The Solution:


While researching on the internet, I came across your website. The debris rake, the magnetic sweeper and quick clean sleeve looked like a good solution to the problem. I talked our superintendent and our project manager into letting me buy this set up and we gave it a whirl. We were impressed with the quality and the packaging but we were most impressed by the engineering and the forethought that was used in designing this product. It does exactly what it is intended do with some limitations.



The debris rake does a good job and turns the top 6 – 10 inches of material up and the magnet can pick up the metal debris with out any problems. Because the magnet is above the surface you are dragging it over, the debris stays on the magnet just fine. As you fill the magnet up the material is pushed or pulled on to the sides of the magnet and stays on fine. When the magnet is full, pull the pin on one end of the quick clean sleeve and pull it off the magnet. Put something under the end of the sleeve and the debris fall off in a neat pile as the sleeve clears the end of the magnet. It works great.



The Limitations.


1. Soil/sand you are dragging needs to be fairly dry in order for the rakes to be effective.



2. The tines can not go as deep as we need them to go. Some of our debris was buried over a foot deep by the blow sand we have to battle on this project.



3. The quick clean sleeve is flimsy and not as durable as it needs to be. This problem is being researched and I am confident that a solution will be found. I would definitely not hesitate to buy this piece of equipment just because of this.



An Added Bonus


The magnetic objects are picked up but the rake also brought up trash, plastic, wood, cardboard, and etc. that were buried, so we could pick these items up as well.



Conclusion


This is an awesome product that works very well and saves a lot on labor costs. As mentioned above, we spent a couple of weeks trying many methods before we found our Rhino 60. I can honestly say that we accomplished more the first full day we had our Rhino 60 than we accomplished in over two weeks of intense effort prior to receiving the machine. It pulls easily behind a Utility vehicle (we used a John /Deere Gator), a bigger ATV would do the job but ours was too light. It will perform well behind a pick up as well. Our site is all sand with little soil and it is hard to do anything without 4 wheel drive. The magnet is very strong and requires no maintenance or recharging. It is 3 layer ceramic magnet that is well protected from damage. The machine is fully adjustable, sets up quick and is very durable. The only thing we would like to see changed is the material used to construct the quick clean sleeve.



Jerry Rolfe, Project Safety Manager, Layton Construction Rhino 62 User



Thanks for the great review. The Quick Clean Off Sleeve did have issues with durability because the material was bent with a line heater which weakened the material. We now extrude the PVC sleeves which has greatly increased their durability. They are still a wear item, but this change is a big improvement to the Quick Clean Off Sleeve quality and durability.

The RHINO magnetic sweeper is awwwsome!

The RHINO magnetic sweeper is awwwsome!



The RHINO far surpassed our expectations. I’ve attached a photo of a typical sweep of less than 200 feet. So far we have picked up about 1.5 tons of metal from the ash. The only problem is the easy sweep release attachment I bought is useless with this much metal attached to the sweeper.



I cannot slide off the plastic cover because I cannot overcome the magnetic pull from the sweeper. We cannot even scrape off this much material for the same reason. We must wear gloves and just pull off the metal. It makes for a lot of work, however the sweeper is the tool to do this type of job. We are very pleased with it. I’ve had a couple of people who want to rent the magnetic sweeper from me.



Perhaps later this year I may be interested in the Debris Digging Rake, I could use the rippers on the gannon box or the tiller attachment for my tractor to do the same job. I’ll see what happens.



Thanks again for a great piece of equipment. Worth every dollar I spent on it.

Thanks for writing and your great review. You are correct, the one drawback about the Quick Clean Off Sleeve is that if you have a lot of debris like the pictures you sent show, and the sleeve gets completely covered so you can't even see it essentially, then it becomes almost impossible to pull off. The only solution is to clean it off more often if you see you're pulling up all kinds of debris before the magnet gets completely covered with debris.
