Step Into The New Decade With The Q-Catch 74 Series Cattle Chute

10 Sep 2023

The makers of the world's quietest squeeze chute, the Q-Catch 86 Series, bring you the newest manual cattle chute of the decade – the Q-Catch 74 Series. Complete with the same patented auto-locking mechanisms, full access points, and user-friendly features, this manual squeeze chute has earned its place in the Q-Catch family. Engineered with the practical rancher in mind, the Q-Catch 74 Series is a straightforward cattle chute that provides ranchers with all that they need to work cattle easily, safely, and efficiently.

With a design that works with cattle psychology, the NEW 3E Q-Catch Cattle Head Gate on the Q-Catch 74 Series makes it even easier for livestock to enter the squeeze chute. Even when the head gate is closed, the unique barred style uses light to draw cattle into the chute, greatly improving flow. Experts say this feature works best when the head gate is operated at the rear, allowing ranchers to apply a simple, yet effective technique of point of balance handling.

Featuring Arrowquip's patented dual-friction locks together with pushto-close, pull-to-open levers, every rancher can operate the Q-Catch head gate and squeeze with ease. The Q-Catch 74 Series requires no adjustments when working various sizes of cattle, making it far simpler to use than most chutes. When quick access to all parts of the animal is essential, the Q-Catch 74 Series includes a new drop-down needle bar, cam-slam latches on all doors, and an optional head holder. For added security especially when using the vet cage, the rubber-coated fiberglass bar and rump fingers will prevent cattle from kicking.

The launch of the 400 Series comes with the release of Arrowquip's extended warranty program which includes a 7-year chute warranty for the Q-Catch 74 Series, making this the longest cattle chute warranty ever offered by a manufacturer. Additionally, the head gate & squeeze autolocking mechanisms, as well as the row of rump fingers, are backed with a true lifetime guarantee, ensuring that ranchers can have confidence in their equipment just as much as Arrowquip does.

The Q-Catch 74 Series Portable Chute, Alley & Tub is a full working system built for safe and efficient cattle handling anywhere. Featuring the new Q-Catch 74 Series cattle chute, an 8' Easy Flow adjustable alley, and an 8' crowding tub, this portable unit provides ranchers with all that they need to get the job done away from home. With an improved patentpending system frame optimized for mobility, Arrowquip's newest portable cattle handling system features the industry's most compact tow package including a unique collapsible tub that reduces its length by 8'.
