  • Squeeze Chute Rubber Floor

    Rubber floors are proven to reduce stress, increase efficiency and improve the health of your cattle. Arrowquip’s maintenance-free, removable rubber flooring brings livestock comfort into the cattle chute, making it as low-stress as possible.

  • Squeeze

    The Q-Catch 86 Series parallel squeeze is unlike any other squeeze chute in the industry. The push-pull squeeze lever never needs to be adjusted to work cattle of varying sizes, as the 29.5” width fits the largest bull and can squeeze down with ease to 7.75” to suit the smallest calf. The squeeze locks in place in any position, ensuring you have all the control you need.

  • Becky

    I will use my Q86 this weekend for the first time! Love the head holder, brisket bar & the vet cage.. can't wait!

  • Frank W

    This head catch has made our days working our cattle 100x easier and run more smoothly. We have ran calf’s as well as our herd bulls through the chute with ease. Can’t recommend this enough will definitely make your days more enjoyable.

  • Donald Whitaker

    Nice head catch

  • John Jenkins

    I just ran 21 head of cattle through in 3 hours. I vaccinated, de-wormed, ear tag, and took blood samples. It was the most enjoyable time I have every had working cattle. From a day old calf to 1,800 lbs bull, I was able the head catch them all with ease and no make adjustments. By far the best squeeze chute made in America. If it was galvanized, it would be perfect. Be that is an European and Australian thing. Not so much in America.

  • Nick VanderZwaag

    Used our brand new 86 series chute yesterday and love it. Ran around 300 head through it doing implants, vaccine and tagging very easy to operate. No stress on calves at all. Very pleased with the performance. Will recommend to anybody.

  • Hugh Duncan

    The best chute we have ever used, everything so smooth and easy to use no matter how big or small! I could brag on it all day long,honestly don't know how we got along without it. My Grand kids love to work cattle with me now! Thank you Q-CATCH 86!

  • Keith Wright

    Went to buy a different cattle chute that I already put money down on, but when I saw the new Arrowquip chute I quickly changed my mind.  The new rubber floor has made handling my cattle much easier.  Squeeze operation allows for my wife and kids to easily help me with the cattle.   But even if they can’t how Arrowquip as built their cattle chutes I’m able to easily manage my herd on my own.

  • Happy Dealer

    Don’t want to leave a review with my company name as that’s not why I’m here.  I just want everyone to know that as a long standing Arrowquip dealer this new cattle chute sets the bar.  I love love love it!!  When I thought they couldn’t make it any batter they did!  The 86 Series Cattle Chute is GREAT!  Thank you Arrowquip for another fantastic product.

  • Ricky Hammonds Hammonds

    It’s easy enough that a 12,11 and 9 year old can run it. Nothing is like this one. Where has this been all of my life!!!

  • Edie Ponderosa Tolar

    I have used and been around many different brands of cattle squeeze chutes. Our Q-Catch 86 Series is the smoothest and easiest operating chute I have ever used. The cattle have lots of room to move through and exit this chute. The ability to let cattle in and catch cattle from the back of the chute keeps the cattle flowing smooth. Also the head catch option has proved itself worth much more than its cost. Great product!!

  • Ashley Holloway Holloway

    Love our 86 series chute! Handled everything from large cows, bulls, and small calves. My 9 year old son can even use it without trouble.

  • Justin Stonewall LeGate

    Arrow chutes are the only way to go and the features are very handy from the width to BOTH sides squeezing down, overall it’s just a very user friendly chute and hands down the Best!!

  • Larry Spruill

    “The head holder is a wonder option. I have a small farm and that my wife and I are on. I would put our squeeze chute and head holder against any competitive product on the market. Every time we use the 8600 we are reminded just how glad we have it.”

  • Kim Finally Llc Weldon Farms

    The best Chute I have every used! Less stress during AI’ing means better results safer for the animals and me. Ease of operation you can work more cattle in a quicker time and do it safely. From the biggest Bulls to the smallest Calfs you can not beat this system.
