Arrowquip's new Portable Q-Catch 86 Series Cattle Handling System has been completely redesigned for ease of transportation, and to adhere to the latest low-stress cattle handling guidelines.
The portable chute, alley and tub in one unit has rubber floors to give cattle sure footing and eliminate noise as they enter the chute. The cradle-shaped Easy Flow Adjustable Cattle Alley ensures cattle move in a single-file line, and it can handle cattle and calves of any size. New jacks lift or lower the unit in one and a half minutes, and the new 3E BudFlow ensures cattle enter and exit the tub smoothly.
The completely redesigned jack system lifts the system from a single point immediately behind the chute. The electric jacks are battery operated and feature two non-spillable AGM batteries. These maintenance-free batteries eliminate the need for you to constantly check fluid levels, and have a high freeze resistance for longer battery life.
The tub features three hinge points, allowing it to fold in on itself to be compact for transport. This makes towing the system on the highway a much simpler and smoother process. A new and improved hitch features an added gusset for additional support, and the front bracket features multiple holes to adjust the portable system so that it can be towed properly.
The system is made extremely quite with these features:
• True rubber floor.
• Caulking on sheet metal panels.
• Nylon rump fingers.
• Nylon bushings on all hinges.
• Anti-rattle rubber hinges on the needle door, side access panels, and all hinges feature rubber absorbers which eliminate rattling noise on moving parts in the chute.
