Arrowquip Q-Catch 87 Squeeze Chute, Alley & Tub

Arrowquip Q-Catch 87 Squeeze Chute, Alley & Tub

The NEW Q-Catch 87 Series portable cattle chute, alley and tub features Arrowquip's signature cattle handling components in a compact and convenient portable unit. Available in multiple options, the new lineup of Q-Catch 87 Series portable cattle handling equipment provides ranchers with the flexibility to get the job done, no matter where it needs to happen.

Taking portable cattle handling to the next level, Arrowquip has introduced a new option, their very first FULL portable system. This new model features an 18' alleyway to improve the way cattle flow through the system. Combining these two cradle-shaped Easy Flow Alley sections with the low-sheeted tub and Q-Catch 87 Series cattle chute that feature patent-pending 3E components will ensure cattle will flow through your system with ease.

Engineered For Transport
Towing is one of the biggest differences in the new portable cattle handling system. The entire unit folds up into a compact and secure package for travel, ensuring your equipment will get to your destination safely. The enhanced frame features 2" x 6" beams on the top, and 3" x 3" beams on the bottom for structural integrity, and setup when you get to your location only takes a matter of minutes with an electric jack system.

Even More Compact Collapsible Tub
The collapsible tub on all Arrowquip portable cattle handling units has been completely redesigned to be truly compact. The tub is folded in a way that shortens the unit by up to 5' 8" when towing. This brilliant engineering has made the NEW 18" alley portable unit the same length as the previous Q-Catch 86 Series Portable Cattle Chute, 8' Alley & Tub model was!
3E BudFlow vs Crowding
The new 3E BudFlow® system allows cattle to see more light, which enhances flow through your handling system. The 3E BudFlow tub is designed to work with natural cattle behaviour by providing them with extra space to prevent stops and encourage cattle to move into the alley seamlessly.
The 180° Crowding Tub provides effective cattle movement from the tub into the alley. The sweep gate features a lock out to keep it from moving back towards the handler when crowding cattle into the alley.
NEW 18' Easy Flow Alley
The NEW 18' Alley section turns your portable cattle chute, alley and tub into a fully portable handling system. By providing enough space for you to move all cattle out of the tub and into the alley, it provides the capacity you need to move your cattle though the system without having to stop and start the flow of cattle repeatedly.
The Easy Flow Cattle Alley sections are equipped with Arrowquip's patent-pending 3E technology which helps to draw cattle in the right direction using light. Two removable panels on each alley section can be moved into multiple positions to control what cattle see, giving you enhanced control of cattle movement.
Also available in an 8’ alley model.

Q-Catch 87 Series Cattle Chute
You'll have maximum control, safety, and efficiency even when you're working cattle alone with the NEW Q-Catch 87 Series at the front of the system. The world's quietest manual cattle chute is at your fingertips, so you're guaranteed a quiet cattle handling experience anytime, anywhere.

Third Generation Cattle Head Holder
If you need reliable cattle head control, look no further than the 3rd Gen Q-Catch Head Holder. This model is heavier, stronger, and more durable than its predecessor. Featuring a patented single lever push-pull operation, the cattle head holder simplifies any procedure. The head holder clamps around the cattle’s neck to hold the head immobile and allow the rancher safe, up-close access.
Sternum Bar
To keep cattle from going down during stressful procedures, the sternum bar is an effective addition to your chute. The new sternum bar comes sheeted to eliminate hoof traps and is quickly installed with just two bolts.
Trimming Bar
The trimming bar allows handlers to safely open both doors of the chute while keeping cattle contained. You can adjust the trimming bar to accommodate cattle of different sizes. It can be easily installed or removed from the chute with 4 bolts.
Scale Platform
The Scale Platform has been specially designed for the 8’ Adjustable Easy Flow Alley section of the portable cattle chute, alley and tub. To make installation easy, the side panels can be lifted and held in place with the slam latches, allowing the operator to slide the Scale Platform underneath. These heavy-duty, 1/4" aluminum plates feature raised sides ensure cattle will not slip off, and allow you to quickly and effectively weigh your cattle.
Scale Mount Plates
Scale Mount Plates designed to support 23" alleyway load bars when using the Arrowquip Scale Platform. Designed to work with Gallagher and Tru-Test load bars.
Manual Jacks
All Arrowquip portable cattle chutes and handling systems are available with the option of manual jacks if preferred.
