Head Thrasher Mechanism


Animates a head with dual movement! Mechanism moves Up/Down and Left/Right. Made to be mounted as the torso of your prop. (We reccomend building a cage around the mechanism using chicken wire so the props clothes do not get caught in the mechanism. For the arms, pool noodles work great!) Has a 1/2" Coupler on top with a threaded 6" pipe to mount your head. Welded on 1/2" Couplers on the sides if you wanted to add arms (PVC Works great, as shown) Uses two bearings for the pivots providing longevity and minimal noise! Base mounting is 8"x8". Comes ready to run. Requires 110V (household outlet) and 25 PSI. Included: Instructions, Steel mechanism, Pneumatic components, and 12V Power adapter. *PLEASE ALLOW 3-4 WEEKS FOR PRODUCTION TIME* *PVC ARMS NOT INCLUDED*

*To self automate this mechanism, we recommend the use of a prop controller. A prop controller is basically a mini computer that will tell the valve to activate once someone walks past the motion sensor. We are now offering the option to add on an Aamon Duo prop controller and motion sensor and set it up as a plug and play unit for an additional $85. These controllers are super easy to use and program and can be done in real time with the buttons on the controller. Without the use of a controller, the mechanism will move once you manually plug the power adapter into an outlet.*
