IAE Chieftain Manual Squeeze Crush
IAE Chieftain Manual Squeeze Crush.
The Chieftain squeeze crush features a manually operated scissor action yoke with easy entry yoke bars which retract fully into the sides of the crush. The yoke aperture is adjustable whilst open or closed (whether the animal is yoked already or not). Fully opening front encapsulating gates allows for extremely good access around the head of the animal. For speedy setting and releasing of the squeeze mechanism the IAE ?vari-lock? system excels, taking principles applied in our flagship manual yoke (The M-1000), this system allows the panels to be placed (and automatically locked) in any infinitely variable position within the operating range. (Full crush width (738/760mm) to a minimum of 260mm).
The side squeezing panels are returned to the open position thanks to a simple lever that activates the spring loaded return mechanism, quickly and quietly allowing the animal to be released. The squeeze side panels are linked and can be operated from either side of the crush using a simple drop down handle. Minimum effort is required due to the length of the operating levers, the ?floating? panel design and the high quality taper bearing support mechanism, which make moving the squeeze panels up to the animal exceptionally easy. No amount of sideways force by the animal will open the squeezed panels due to the use of the same ?vari-lock? principle as the yoke. It is only reset by the spring loaded release handle. The operating levers for the squeeze panels are located at the rear of the crush, this operating position is designed to keep the user out of the field of vision of the entering animals, minimizing balking and maximizing cattle flow entering the crush and therefore throughout the handling system.
Rubber damping and buffers for moving squeeze mechanism elements give exceptional durability and quiet operation. Plain (oil impregnated) bearings in inaccessible areas reduce maintenance requirements.
