Financing Information

I have used many different chutes over the years and the Arrowquip is by far the safest, most versatile, and most efficient. I was able to work anything from 130lb calves to 2200lb bulls, without making any adjustments or pulling pins like other chutes require. It provides the most access to the animal of any chute I've used.

Product Features

  • Looking at a calf through the head gate of a Q-Catch squeeze chute

    3E Q-Catch Cattle Head Gate [PATENT-PENDING]

    With a design that works with cattle psychology, rather than against it, the NEW 3E Cattle Head Gate gets cattle to enter the squeeze chute without putting up a fight. Even when the gate is closed the bars allow cattle to see light and draws them towards it, giving you a more hands-off cattle handling experience. Add the Q-Catch handle that is easy to operate from any point, and you are set up for proper cattle flow every time.

  • Side access panels removed on Q-Catch 74 Series chute

    Unparalleled Access

    The 74 Series gives you all the access points you need to work your cattle effectively. From the NEW needle door with drop-down bar, top and bottom side doors that offer full side access, added configuration options for the removable access panels. The Deluxe Model also features a full-size vet cage with improved head clearance, so your animals are fully accessible.

    Cattle Chute Floor

    Our true virgin rubber floor, not rumber like other flooring types on the market, dampens sound for a quiet cattle handling experience. Much softer than other options, the rubber is made for long-term durability and provides great traction for hooves, giving cattle the confidence to walk through the chute with ease.

    Recently purchased a 74 series for a new set of cattle pens on the east side of our 100,000 acre ranch in West Texas where we raise about 1200 head of fairly unruly /borderline outlaw Hereford. I bought a ww beefmaster XL for the last set very nice custom built cattle pens on our South side which I was very disappointed with. Had to send it back after the first use and after the second use there's nuts bolts and pieces laying everywhere cowboys with big goose eggs on their head from hitting the head gate lever. Have several preifert S01 chutes as well which I really like for their simplicity and reliability HOWEVER:

    After processing 500hd this weekend, this Arrowquip 74 series is my new favorite chute and I'll undoubtedly buy another for the following reasons:
    1. Very well built (still looks brand new with nothing broken, bent, dented, or damaged).
    2. No bulls attempted to crawl out of the top of the chute.
    3. Operation and functionality is very intuitive. The one time I reached for the owner's manual, I figured out the function before I could find the page that would have answered my question.
    4. Very Quiet chute compared to other brands.
    5. I can process calves easily almost as efficiently as dragging calves with a really good team of cowboys.
    6. We brand on the left shoulder so that access hatch Works beautifully for branding.
    7. The rear sliding gate works very smoothly and effortlessly. I often found myself operating it with one hand behind my back while riding down tally marks in my notebook!
    8. Very very safe for handlers in regards to all the side Access gates. Not a single one blew out or even attempted to escape while administering vaccinations, brands, and castrating.
    9. Only missed half a dozen head at the head gate which were large bulls and cows with horns >25" in in total width.
    10. Everyone that operated the chute needed almost no instruction and made comments about how much they liked it.

    1. We missed the same big straight horned bull 3X but on the last attempt we just kept the head gate closed, jammed 'em in there and trimmed his horns. Problem solved very safely.
    2. When branding those large bulls, the center of the shoulder was just 2-3" inches too far back from that black access gate if they were sitting back on you but, a gentle nudge was adequate to get the to reposition and give us access to the center of his shoulder.
    3. I haven't figured out the offside side gate release but, for the 10 seconds I needed it -the problem solved itself.

    Like I noted in the very beginning of this review, our cattle are some pretty wild, often aggressive, and large horned Hereford cattle raised in some of the roughest most unforgiving country in the state of Texas. This is the only chute that didn't leave me cursing a manufacturer by the end of the day.

    We have used our 74 series a couple times so far and love it. With the head gate handle moved to the back the cattle don’t stop coming in the chute. Quietest chute I’ve ever used and the head catch makes tagging super easy and safe.
