    TRADITIONAL SELF CATCH HEADGATE

    This headgate has been the standard for self catch for many years. The headgate can be operated from either side. Its closed opening adjusts from 5 to 12 inches and opens to 28 inches for release. To operate, the 2 doors open towards the animal, creating a larger opening. When the animal puts its head through and pushes forward, it causes the doors to close and make a smaller opening, hence catching them by the head. This headgate easily bolts onto any of our 3 chutes as well as wood posts for those who like to make their own chute. The headgate also has a 7 foot chain used to restrain an animal’s head.

    SPINLOCK SELF CATCH HEADGATE

    This is the most advanced self catch headgate on the market today. Our spinlock technology makes this the best headgate you will ever use. It can also be operated manually or be controlled at the rear of the chute by a pulley and cable system. This headgate operates by the animal trying to pass through the opening in the headgate. The spinlock system then goes from lock up set positions to close and lock in a fraction of a second. Doesn’t matter if cattle are wild or tame, they’re caught! The headgate can be set to catch cows and calves in a matter of seconds. This is the fastest mechanical headgate you will ever use. The headgate has 8 set positions for different size cattle from 7 to 20 inches. The headgate minimum opening is 5 ½ inches and maximum to release cattle is 28 inches at mid section. The headgate locks from 5 ½ to 17 inches with 9 positive mechanical catches that hold. No more cattle escaping! The headgate also has a 7 foot chain for head restraint. The headgate can also be locked open to allow cattle to pass through a chute. The SL28 easily mounts to any of our 3 chutes or can be mounted to wood posts for those who want to make their own chute.
