Rough conditions... no problem.
We are very impressed...

A Tow Behind Magnetic Sweeper with an Automated Clean Off System
The Aardvark Heavy Duty Tow-Behind Magnetic Sweeper has a permanently charged magnet in it that weighs close to 600 lbs and with a magnet this big, clean off has to be automated in some way.
The Aardvark utilizes the simplest most proven and effective method of automating clean off which is to rotate the magnet around a pivot point on one side to rotate the magnet upward to physically separate the magnet from the debris.
To do this a 4000 lb winch is used. Rotating the magnet around a pivot point on one side takes less effort than lifting the magnet straight up and the 4000 lbs winch does this with no problem. The normal steel winch cable is replaced with an Amsteel blue synthetic winch rope in order to withstand more frequent unwinding and winding. A normal steel winch cable would fatigue and break with a limited number of uses.
The winch is designed to be powered by a deep cycle marine battery. A marine battery does not come with the unit but should be used instead of a regular battery because they are designed to be used in these circumstances much like they are used for trolling motors in boats. They can also withstand some bumping and bouncing.
Wrap Around Feature
The “Wrap Around” feature on the Aardvark Heavy Duty Tow-Behind Magnetic Sweeper prevents debris from falling off due to ground strikes, or dirt and grass pushing the debris backward on the magnet and off the back. Instead of the debris falling off the back when pushed backward, the debris just wraps around onto the back side of the magnet.
Sweeping Height Control
Adjustable sweeping height from 1 1/2″ to 6″. Adjusts to suit all off road conditions. Continuously adjustable sweeping height by turning the top link (gold in color as show in pictures) allows fine tuning of performance in any terrain and conditions for optimum performance.
Four Layers of Permanently Charged Magnets
Aardvark Heavy Duty Tow-Behind Magnetic Sweeper features four layers of permanently charged magnets 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
Lifting Height of 12"
Aardvark Heavy Duty Tow-Behind Magnetic Sweeper can pick up a 2 1/2" nail from 12" in a bench test. The sweeping height of the magnet is adjustable from 1 1/2 to 6"
