Ranger Gate Feeders Feature Galvanized Material For Long Life

Ranger Gate Feeders Feature Galvanized Material For Long Life

Texas-based Ranger Gate uses galvanizing to add life to its feeders, gates and panels.

Ranger Gate feeders uses a hot-dip galvanizing process to protect the most vulnerable feeder components from corrosion.

Responding to customer requests for corrosion-resistant livestock equipment, Ranger Gate has collaborated with AZZ Incorporated, North America's largest galvanizer, to design and build a line of galvanized bulk feeders. Ranger Gate says this feature should provide much longer service life than traditional, painted-steel products.

Ranger Gate offers two styles of galvanized bulk feeders, available in one-ton to six-ton capacities.

Texas-based Ranger Gate uses galvanizing to add life to its feeders, gates and panels.

Ranch models are towable with heavy-duty jacks and new axles and wheels. Feedlot models are placed on skids. All trailer and skid components are hot-dip galvanized to give them a durable zinc coating which resists rust from water and other corrosive materials that drip from the trough area.

"In harsh climates it's common for painted-steel trailers and skids to rust out after only a couple seasons of use," said Rick Jahn, owner of Ranger Gate. "Our galvanized bulk feeders are designed to last a lifetime by eliminating corrosion concerns. They can potentially help ranchers save thousands of dollars in repair and replacement costs."

The company's feeders also feature a modular design with hoppers made from 16-gauge, pre-galvanized steel. Troughs are offered with either galvanized steel or polyethylene construction.

Other unique features include rear clean-out doors and a 7.5-foot-wide sliding top door for easy loading. Ranger Gate will also fabricate custom feeder designs to meet any rancher's specific needs.

In addition to its bulk feeders, Ranger Gate offers a variety of other galvanized products, including gates, panels, tanks and kennels.
