Arrowquip Q-Catch 87 Squeeze Chute

Arrowquip Q-Catch 87 Squeeze Chute

The NEW Q-Catch 87 Series cattle chute is stronger, faster, and quieter than any model before it. From the lineup of chutes that has redefined the meaning of silence in cattle operations, the latest Q-Catch model takes it to the next level, providing a truly silent cattle handling experience.

The NEW Direct Drive head gate technology provides rapid head gate response, while the 3E Head Gate draws cattle into the chute to prevent stops in the flow of cattle through the system for increased efficiency. When combined with the 87 quiet points found from front-to-back, enhanced heavy-duty frame, and modifications throughout that are designed to make cattle handling as easy as it can possibly be for you, this chute can’t be beat.

All of this is backed by the industry’s longest and most extensive 7-Year, No Bull Warranty. No matter where you look, you won’t find a better investment than the Q-Catch 87 Series cattle chute

Q-Catch 87 Models

Deluxe Vet Model
If you want maximum control, versatility, and freedom in your cattle chute, look no further than the Deluxe Vet. Including all the features of the Q-Catch 87 Series, this chute takes your livestock management to the next level with a full-length dual parallel squeeze. Having the vet cage squeeze with the chute allows you to narrow the chute before cattle enter it, so there is no point within your system that a cow or calf can turn around!

Standard Model
Working with limited space? The Standard Model of the Q-Catch 87 Series allows you to work your cattle in the most safe and effective way possible, even if you cannot fit a full-sized chute and vet cage into your yard. Including all the standard features of the Q-Catch 87 Series, and offering a variety of add-ons designed to increase your productivity, the Standard is an effective option for operations where space is limited.

Q-Catch 87 Features

Quieter then ever before
With over 87 quiet points on the chute including the new poly-coated slam latches and bushings, anyone who works cattle in the Q-Catch 87 Series will understand why it is truly the world's quietest manual cattle chute.

Longest Manual Cattle Chute Warranty
All Arrowquip manual cattle chutes are backed by a 7-Year No Bull Warranty, along with lifetime guarantees on the virgin rubber floor, rump fingers, and the patented locking mechanisms.
3E Q-Catch Head Gate (Patented)
The redesigned Q-Catch head gate features a barred style that uses natural cattle behavior to your advantage. When cattle can see light and open space at the end of the chute, they are drawn towards the head gate with little to no handler intervention.

Heavier Duty Q-Catch Cattle Chute
The Q-Catch has been upgraded with a heavier duty cattle chute frame that features 2" x 6" top beams and 3" x 3" bottom beams for enhanced durability.

Third-Generation Cattle Head Holder
The third generation of the Q-Catch Head Holder is stronger, easier to use, and more durable than its predecessor. The cattle head holder clamps around the cattle’s neck to hold the head immobile, allowing the rancher safe, up-close access. Featuring a patented single lever push-pull operation, the cattle head holder simplifies any procedure by minimizing thrashing and erratic head movement.
Wheel Kit
The new 700 Series cattle chutes come portable-ready. Simply add a wheel kit and you can take your chute on the road by installing two wheels and an adjustable hitch. Quick, easy, and efficient.
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.
