The CCC Speed Drafter
enables 5 gates to be worked from the 1 location. This is as
quick and more reliable than air operated. There is a manual
lever control to the 2 front draft gates enabling a 3 way draft
whilst standing at the back of the crush. If an NSS V-Race is
incorporated leading into the crush the sliding gate on the
V-Race section prior to the crush can also be opened and closed
via a direct linkage from this point. Obviously the crush
entrance and exit can also be operated from this single
position. This system is brilliant when weighing cattle.
If access to the head is
required there is a manual 3 way draft between the Baulk Gate
and the Speed Gates.
Every gate on the unit
will remain where it is supposed to until moved by the operator
(even on a very windy day).
