THE NEW "HEADMASTER" HEADBAIL"™
Australian Patent Application No.
The undisputed dux of all
head bail is now on our complete range of crushes
For further information please call
Murray Schaefer on 0425 315 913.
Until now most head bails have a limited mechanical advantage.
Mechanical advantage is vital when an 80 kg person is trying to
restrain a 600 kg animal.
Traditional ratchet locking head bails only lock in increments
of 20 - 30 mm or so. This allows a big neck animal to suck back,
or allows excessive head movement which can be dangerous to both
animal and operator.
Our new head bail has closing down to 6 mm increments with
almost zero suck back (suck back can be a problem with slide
locks and all traditional ratchet locks).
The new NSS head bail combines approaching over center in 3
differing closing positions with the safety of a gravity ratchet
lock. In addition there is a mechanical advantage of up to 5 to
1 which means that an 80kg person can apply up to 400kgs of
pressure. These 2 advantages combine with closing increments
down to 6mm, and, quick release push – pull dual operating
handles on all crushes.
Over 5 years of 1000’s of hours have been in invested in the
research, development and field testing of this revolutionary
patent pending head bail.
Quite simply there is no head bail on the market that can
approach this head bail for performance.
Quite simply there is no other
head bail on the market that can approach this headbail for
