Titan Working Chutes are designed to handle some of the largest breeds, yet versatile enough to accommodate small calves. Both the Standard & Combo/AI chute models, feature a headgate that may be operated automatically or manually. In addition, both chutes feature a double-squeeze action that firmly latches and gently holds the animal. Finally, both sides feature a side escape, as well as bottom width adjustment. All Controls are easily reversible from left to right for each operating location.
The Standard Model is one of the strongest working chutes available today. It is heavy duty, all steel unit, built to take abuse. The frame is built with 2 inch square, high tensile, strength steel tubing with all stress points reinforced for added strength and durability. A unique Rumber Floor with a 20-year warranty adds durability and a more quiet operation for less stress on the animals and operator. An optional grated floor with cleats every 12 inches provide extra traction.
The Combo/AI model features all that the standard offers except it features an additional palpation cage with a common floor. The palpation cage is accessible form both sides and is adjustable in width. The cage will attach directly to the Titan West's Circular System. A standard feature for both models is a unique, manually operated crowd ahead bar that allows the operator to encourage animals to continue moving through the chute and prevents the animals from backing out of the chute into the alley way.
Also a standard feature on both models is a chest rest that mounts on the floor of the chute, near the front of the chute, which prevents the cows from kneeling down in the chute or small calves from laying down. Each Chute has a dropgate at the entry of the chute that is locked down when working to prevent cows waiting in the alley from opening the gate. The dropgate can also be locked up in two different heights for ease of loading the chute.
