With heavy-duty construction and the latest Arrowquip innovations, this fully portable system is everything you need to take the next step towards a more efficient operation. When towing, our patented frame makes this full-size working system just 29.5 feet long, and you can fold the collapsible tub down to just 3 feet wide. With an industry-grade adjustable hitch, you get a durable, compact package that tows like a dream. You can go off the road and through the roughest terrain to head straight to your cattle. And when every second counts, this portable system can go from road-ready to ready-for-work in only four and a half minutes. At the front of the system is the NEW Q-Catch 74 Series Squeeze Chute. With the 3E System, you can use cattle behavior to your advantage, with cattle easily entering the chute by seeing light through the head gate, even when closed. The redesigned Q-Catch Head Gate includes a push-to close pull-to-open handle that can be used anywhere alongside the chute. And the squeeze goes from 29.5 inches down to just 7.75 inches, so you can secure any size of cattle safely, every time. When access to the animal is important, you need all the access points to get the job done right. This system comes with a NEW needle access door with drop down needle access bar, along with split side access doors, removable inspection panels, AND a full-size vet cage. The Easy Flow Alley is an essential part of your portable unit, and we’ve upgraded it with user-friendly features that can make all the difference. The new adjustment cables allow you to easily adjust both sides of the alley from one side, while the new safety latches keep the sides from dropping down unintentionally. Cattle will flow into your alley quickly and easily, every time with the 8’ Crowding Tub at the rear-end of the portable unit. Our patented portable system frame makes folding and unfolding the tub quick and easy, while also reducing foot traps. With an incorporated crowd gate lock, cattle have no other place to go but into the alley, allowing you to guide cattle into the system safely.

3E Q-Catch Cattle Head Gate [PATENT-PENDING]
The new 3E Q-Catch Cattle Head Gate features a new look that allows cattle to see light through the head gate even when closed.
