Welcome to a new era of cattle handling. The NEW Q-Catch 87 Series cattle chute is stronger, faster, and quieter than any model before it. From the lineup of chutes that has redefined the meaning of silence in cattle operations, the latest Q-Catch model takes it to the next level, providing a truly silent cattle handling experience.

The NEW Direct Drive head gate technology provides rapid head gate response, while the 3E Head Gate draws cattle into the chute to prevent stops in the flow of cattle through the system for increased efficiency. When combined with the 87 quiet points found from front-to-back, enhanced heavy-duty frame, and modifications throughout that are designed to make cattle handling as easy as it can possibly be for you, this chute can’t be beat.

All of this is backed by the industry’s longest and most extensive 7-Year, No Bull Warranty. No matter where you look, you won’t find a better investment than the Q-Catch 87 Series cattle chute.

    Our Q-Catch has allowed us to remain in the cattle business as my wife and I age. We are in our mid 70's and are able to work cattle with very little outside help, The ease of operation is critical for us. Cattle remain quiet and have much less stress than with any other chute.

  • Craig Comeaux

    Absolutely the best chute on the market. Craftsmanship at its finest on this piece of equipment. Its one of the quietest and smoothest chutes I have ever operated. I actually look forward to working cattle with the Q-Catch 87 chute. No adjustments required when going from the herd bull to a 300 lb calf, eliminates the need for pre-sorting or making those chute adjustments on the fly. Less time in the chute saves time and stress while working cattle. This chute is an absolute must have for a one man operation or any size operation.

  • Cole Sonne

    The Chute and Alley from arrowquip has been a big upgrade for us. The cattle flow through so much better, to the point we rarely use a cattle prod any more. The chute is designed to make cattle feel comfortable when walking through and they certainly don't need much prompting.

  • Salli Matteson

    I waited 5 years until I finally purchased my Q Catch-87 chute. I wish I hadn’t waited so long. It’s easy to use. Everyone that comes out is amazed at how easy it is to operate

  • Jo Moniz

    We purchased our chute in June and I will
    Say it’s the best investment we’ve made in along time. It works well and makes working cattle so much easier. We would recommend this chute to all of our cattle friends in the industry.

  • Zach Hewitt

    This past summer I've had the opportunity to work with the Q-Catch system on 2 separate occasions. The first was for a calf branding. Being able to use the center octagon to move calves from one pen to another made sorting much easier. The second time I was actually helping @ourwyominglife with their Ranch Roundup for their subscribers. I gave a brief demonstration on the entire corral system. The system was actually set up for calves with the adjustable alley walls, but it didn't take but 5 minutes to move the entire all walls out for adult size cows. The quick adjust is so easy to work. Running cows through the system was a breeze, from the self shut gates, to the tub, to the sliding gates right up into the squeeze chute. I ran the entire demo all by myself.
    This system is great for the small manpower producer.

  • Stephen Muza

    Its a good equipment

  • 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 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 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 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.
