We are proud
of the fact that during an economic period in the UK
where British manufacturing has been in decline we
have grown year on year to the point where we believe
we are now market leaders in the UK in the supply
of vacuum machines for paddock maintenance
applications. We are of course hoping this
will continue and in any event our opinion
is the Company is well established and prepared
for most eventualities.
is now in its 12th year of operations and
for the last 8 years the company has been based in
Brandon, Suffolk where we run the company administratively
and maintain an appropriate level of stock affording
an excellent delivery service, most times with machines
Ex Stock. It is the same plant where we rigorously finish
all machines ready for delivery to our customers.
Lynx vacuum machines incorporating the Polyethylene
rotary moulded hoppers and other components, plus fitted
with hydraulic control systems are all fully manufactured
by the Predator People at its Brandon facility. All
future developments incorporating Polyethylene moulding
and Hydraulic control will be designed and manufactured
at the Brandon factory.
We pride ourselves on the high finish and quality of all our products.
All our machines are now powder coated for a quality finish.
It is our belief
that in addition to supplying quality products
to the equine and related markets our disciplines in
respect of the following have contributed significantly
to our success.
- Customer service is very important and
to that end we endeavor to provide such a good
service that customers will actually notice, be impressed
and make positive comment to others. (See ‘Customer

- Supporting the Equine
industry by attending
high profile equine
trade shows is important to us.
Customers can always visit us when
we attend a show and prospective customers
can meet us, see our equipment and generally

in design to provide the following benefits to

say they are designed for Ladies to use, as
most horse owners are Ladies. Big agricultural, heavy
machines are not ideal.
- Reliable and robust – Yes
they are that and with a 2-year warranty they
had better be good.
- Efficient in operation – The whole design
is to counter accusations prevalent in the
industry that vacuum machines do not work well in all conditions. The
Predator machines do and to that end we try
to make the point positively.

per half hour (quoted by an actual customer)

be considered a small to medium sized company but our
standards are very high. Professional manufacturing,
marketing and management are paramount to our success.
Niche products to a niche industry is challenging enough
so all other parameters had better be good if we
are to maintain our success.
