450 Series Cattle Crush
Vet section included
The 450 series crush operates almost silently to help keep stock calm and move them through the race better. Weighing around 450 kg it has a sheeted slide gate, bottom doors, rump bar and full vet section. A 71 mm anti bruise rail keeps stock safe from bruising while being worked with in the crush.
Innovative Head bail
The 450, 600 and 900 Series crushes utilise the same innovative head bail design. It works with concertina style doors hinged at both the top and bottom. This one of the best strength to weight designs on the market, which allows the doors to be closed incredibly quickly. It also keeps the doors parallel from top to bottom, even under heavy pressure, preventing the animals heads from going down while caught.
The head bail doors feature a infinite one directional lock. As you close the doors, the silent locking mechanism prevents the doors from opening. This means very low operator force is required to capture and hold even the toughest cattle.
The 450 Series comes with Clipex safety handles for the head bail operation. Pulling directly down disengages the handle from operating the head bail. This prevents the rear handle from moving while the head bail is being operated from the front handle and vice versa. However a unique feature enables both handles to remain engaged in the opening direction, regardless of whether they are pulled down or not. This enables extremely quick opening of the head bail doors from either handle in the case of an emergency.
Optional upgrades to the Clipex® 600 series include:
- Front Baulk gates that slow the cattle down and make them easier to catch in the head bail
- Front Adaptor posts that make it easy to attach Clipex® cattle panels and gates via pins and lugs
- Welded Galvanised floor that fits inside the crush making it suitable for weighing
