8" x 8" plates should be set in the cement pad, flush with the top. Set in approximately 8" off each corner to prevent cracking. We recommend 8" x 8" square plates, a minimum of 1/4" thick steel, with rebar set in the cement.
Customer is asked to install wiring from the power source to the horse walker and connect it to the cover box of the machine. If the customer does not want to install the wiring, please make arrangements with a qualified electrician to do the work. Trojan Horsewalkers also ask the customer to furnish cement for the installation of the horse walker unit. (usually 4 to 5 sacks of ready-mix)
PLEASE NOTE: If your area has particularly sandy soil a cement pad may be preferred. A cement pad will also eliminate grass and weeds growing in the Horsewalker area.
