The working chute has all of the adjustments needed. I love the way the head catch works for placing ear tags but yet safe on the animal.

    3E System: Easy Entry & Exit

    The redesigned head gate features Arrowquip's 3E System through its barred curtain-style doors. Since cattle see more light through the head gate, they are easily drawn towards opening, making cattle behavior work for you. With straight sides, cattle will not choke if they go down, no matter the size of cattle.

    We love using our Arrowquip 8700 series Cattle chute, it is very easy to use even when by oneself. We noticed that since purchasing this chute the cattle are a lot more relaxed, they enter the chute quickly and very little stress compared to our previous chute with a self catching head gate. We had a few problems with the chute and Arrowquip representative and we had our parts ordered and sent to us very quickly and they even followed up with a phone call later to make sure we received our parts and the problem was corrected. I would recommend to anyone who is looking for a cattle handling system or even just a few pieces to seriously consider Arrowquip for their cattle handling solutions,

      Hi Bruno! Thanks for the great feedback and sharing your experience with your Q-Catch 87 series. We are happy to hear you would recommended Arrowquip equipment to others!

    We've had the Arrow Quip chute for over a year now and it is far superior to the Powder River chute we had before. The biggest attributes for us is the ability to work cattle thru the chute by yourself and the unbelievable quietness of the chutes mechanisms.

    It make cattle working fun again!!
    Things flow smoothly and quietly and at the end of the day everyone still gets along!

  • 5 Todd Siebert

    The head catch we had put on this chute is the best!! My wife does all the tagging and the old chute allowed the cattle to swing their heads up, down and side to side. Also, all the different ways this chute can open to allow access is amazing. We are extremely happy with this product.

    The chute I was using before was broken and outdated. Our new arrowquip chute has been amazing. Working cattle is so much more efficient.
