The Heel-O-Matic Trainer's Unique Advantages:
Heel-O-Matic allows you to customize your hop speed. With the unique variable pulley system you can easily select and change the ratio of pull speed to hop speed to meet your practice needs. You can slow down the hop at faster speeds or speed it up at a slower speed. Mechanical tension arms will maintain steady belt tension at any setting. Packed and sealed shaft bearings reduce friction and increase the life expectancy of your roping machine.
Every Heel-O-Matic Ground Driven Trainer is equipped with a turning head. A spring in the head gives the dummy a snappy, quick return and keeps the position steady when being pulled. The collapsible horns are tipped to eliminate hang-ups and give headers a smoother release. The back leg dally kit lets heelers practice hard hits and accuracy.
You can’t truly appreciate the realistic Heel-O-Matic hop unless you spend a little time watching the natural movement of a roping steer, especially while he is being pulled by a header. The hips and rear legs move in a rhythmic circular pattern. Heel-O-Matic has studied and carefully replicated this pattern for the most accurate movement you can find in a team roping training machine. This is extremely important – if there is just a front to back swing in the rear legs, the machine can’t ‘hop’ over the top strand of your loop. This could cause you to develop a false sense of timing.
Shorter skids give you increased maneuverability for tighter turns and more realistic run patterns. In addition, the Heel-O-Matic carries most of it’s weight on the skids. This provides a smooth pull and less compaction in the arena.
