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 squeeze 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.

    As a rural veterinarian, I had worked cows through every brand of chute available. All of them had limitations or features that were frustrating for my 5' stature and lacking upper-body strength. When it came time to purchase a chute for my own personal herd at home, the Arrowquip Q-86 Vet series met all my criteria! I can easily work my own herd by myself in a timely manner, from vaccines and castration, to palpation and AI. I've even operated the chute one-handed with a toddler on my hip! Great, safe, quiet product that I highly recommend to other vets, ranch moms, or anyone who's looking for an easier-handling chute to replace their rusted dinosaurs of the past!

    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.

      Very happy to hear that, Alan! Thank you for choosing Arrowquip.

    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.

    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.

      Great to hear your cattle flow improved. Thank you for choosing Arrowquip!

    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

    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.
