The Advantages of a Heel-O-Matic Training Tool 02:36

Heel-O-Matic is the only machine with a patented hopping motion that replicates the actual movement of live cattle in tow. Here are just a few ways our machines can help you succeed and make it to the pay window: POSITION A fixed tongue and shorter frame produces realistic maneuverability, quicker reaction times for you and your horse, and overall effective, consistent patterning. RATE Controllably repeat your runs and prepare to accurately calculate your steer's speed regardless of cattle type. SWING Develop muscle memory by roping at the same angles as a live steer for a consistent, accurate loop with our rotating head and wide legs. TIMING Practice controlled handles with our rotating head and collapsible horns. Angled wide legs and our three-pulley system produce the most life-like circular hop. DELIVERY Our realistic head will help you rope cattle deep around the eyes and our wide legs keep your loop exaggerated to more consistently catch two feet. DALLY Safely practice proper dallying techniques, fast or slow, with our dally kit for hard hits and collapsible horns for headers. SO... WHY A HEEL-O-MATIC? PATENTED HOP Study other machines and notice the rear legs simply move back and forth, which develops a false sense of timing compared to roping live cattle. The hips and rear legs of running steers move in a rhythmic, circular pattern. We carefully duplicated this movement to create the patented Heel-O-Matic Hop, producing the most realistic practice motion. Heel-O-Matic's unique three-stage pulley system allows run customization by varying the hopping speed in relationship to towing speed to meet your practice needs. MANEUVERABILITY Our shorter frames have the best maneuverability of any roping practice machine available, resulting in tighter, more stable turns and more realistic patterning. The weight of our machines is carried on the skids, not the tires, which produces a smoother, less bouncy pull and less compaction in your arena. OUR PROMISE We stand behind our products. If you're not completely satisfied, you're protected by our 7-Day 100% Money Back Guarantee!*. All Heel-O-Matic products also have a one-year mechanical warranty. *(shipping excluded) Interested in more information?
