Our Patented Leverage Assisted Split Sliding Gates
The split slide gate is
leverage assisted with auto lock and is around 3 times
faster to operate than a conventional slide gate.
The innovative gate blocks the following animal
from both sides. Often the following animal has itís
head over the rump of the leader. It is much easier to
baulk the head instead of trying to jam a conventional
sliding gate on the shoulder.
Further, if the operator can reach
the handle the gate can be closed or opened. Closing is
spring assisted (with auto lock) and opening is auto
release. Following cattle will stand closer to the gate
and sheet rattle noise is eliminated.
Base of sliding gate travels on
raised RHS on a heavy flat bar base. (Gates which travel
in a channel are prone to jamming due to rock and dirt
build up). Pantograph operation. Unique to National
Stockyards, protected by Australian Patent No.
