Pneumatic / Air Operated Drafter

A full range of pneumatic / air operated slide gates, drafters and crushes is available from National Stockyard Systems. Full remote control operation is available at a fraction of the cost of conventional remote control with multiple remote control key-pads for each yard. This means that any person working in the yard can open any gate from a distance. An added bonus is that everything can be operated manually if the air compressor or power fails.
