All Crowding Tubs are built for heavy-duty work. Made with powder-coated American steel, the Crowding Tub is designed to withstand extreme weather conditions for long-term use. For added stability, the panels are bolted together and stabilized by joiner bars that connect to the center of the tub.
Crowd Gate Lock
The crowd gate automatically locks into position as you move the sweep through the tub, ensuring cattle cannot push back on the gate and cause injury to the handler. For quieter operation, the crowd gate lock features a rubber bushing to cushion the impact on the panels and reduce metal clanging. When not in use, the crowd gate lock can be disengaged to pull the sweep back in a smooth motion.
Left-Hand vs Right Hand Configuration
All Arrowquip Cattle Tubs are available in left or right-hand configuration. To determine the hand you need in your cattle working system, stand facing the crowd gate and look at the direction of the sweep. If it rotates counterclockwise, it is left-hand. If it rotates clockwise, it is right-hand. If you require assistance determining the hand you need, contact the Arrowquip Team.

Fully Sheeted Sides
The fully sheeted sides on the Cattle Crowding Tubs safeguard cattle, as there are no foot traps or opportunity for them to injure themselves in the tub. 53” sheeting allows the handler to use point of balance handling techniques to assist with cattle movement.
The exit gate comes standard on all Cattle Crowding Tub Models and is located next to the alley entrance, ensuring operator safety in the event that you must enter the tub with an animal.
