Question: What is all included on the Lakeland Deluxe Spin Trim Chute
Answer: The Spin Trim Chute comes standard with an automatic self-catch headgate for vaccinating and treating sheep and goat. It has the cradle squeeze, which squeezes the sheep and goat to the center of the unit. The spin chute has a 360-degree spin so you can spin the sheep/goat halfway over, at a 45-degree angle, or upside down. The floor hinges out for trimming hooves. It has a folding gate at the back of the unit. It also comes standard with a set of tires and hitch if you ever need to move it around.
Question: How much does the Lakeland Deluxe Spin Trim Chute weigh and what are the dimensions?
Answer: It weighs around 300 pounds, so it’s not too heavy to pull around with a vehicle, tractor, or quad. The dimensions are 62’’L x 43’’W x 45’’H.
Question: Does the Lakeland Deluxe Spin Trim Chute have a manual or automatic self-catch headgate?
Answer: It comes with the automatic self-catch headgate on it. This is handy because you don’t have to have another person ready to catch each sheep or goat, as the animal comes through the unit. It’s ideal when you are working by yourself! The automatic self-catch headgate is fully adjustable for different sized animals.
Question: Why are the squeeze sides curved on the Lakeland Deluxe Spin Trim Chute?
Answer: The cradle-curved sides give a better hold of the sheep or goat when you are processing them through or spinning them over. Because the squeeze cradles around the body of the animal, it reduces all the fighting because they are held tightly.
Question: How easy is it to spin a sheep or goat in the Lakeland Deluxe Spin Trim Chute?
Answer: Very simple! The cradle squeeze keeps the animal at the center of the unit. When you come to spin, it almost just rolls by itself because of the center of gravity. It saves all the back work!
Question: What are the upholstered vinyl pads for?
Answer: The upholstered vinyl pads are an optional product that are attached to the sides of the cradle squeeze. It is designed for people who are running goats or smaller, skinnier animals. It gives them a tighter, more comfortable hold when you are spinning them over.
Question: Can the Lakeland Deluxe Spin Trim Chute be attached to the existing gates and panel I have?
Answer: Yes, it comes with the eyes (pin holes) on the back of the unit, so you can work it in with your existing panels. All our Lakeland sheep and goat handling equipment (i.e. sorters, raceway, crowding tubs) are designed to pin right onto the Deluxe Spin Trim Chute. It pairs nicely with the Lakeland’s Working Chute and Crowding Tub for sheep and goat.
Unlike other products on the market, our Deluxe Spin Trim Chute system squeezes from both sides, keeping the animal centered within the unit. Having the center of gravity right in the middle makes it easy when you’re spinning the chute, putting less strain on you and your animal.
When it comes to spinning your sheep or goat, our system is operated by a foot pedal, which can be found on both sides of the unit. When pressed, the system rolls 360 degrees all the way around. There are multiple locking points, so you can you can roll and lock the DST at 180 degrees upside down, at 45 degrees part way down or even sideways at 90 degrees. We wanted it to be easy for you, making sure you have access to your animal at whatever height or angle you need it to be.
When you have the animal locked in your ideal position, simply pop the floor off and you’ll have access to your animal’s legs and hooves.
At the front, the Lakeland Deluxe Spin Trim Chute comes equipped with an automatic self-catching headgate, which works exactly as it sounds. It’ll catch the animal’s head all by itself. When the headgate is in the set position, the sheep or goat catches itself as it tries to walk through the headgate.
On top of the headgate, press down on the release handle while pulling on the gate to let the animal right out the front.
Of course, sheep and goat come in all different shapes and sizes, so we made sure that the headgate is fully adjustable to make sure that any animal, big or small, with horns or no horns, can fit through and be easily caught. You can make it bigger for your rams with especially big horns or smaller for some of your skinnier ewes.
There is a rear gate that simply slides across preventing the rest of your flock from getting in while you work on your animal. This system perfectly pairs with our Working Chute and Crowding Tub for sheep and goat, a system that efficiently helps crowd and sort your animals right up to your Spin Trim Chute.
As you can tell, the Deluxe Spin Trim Chute is curved on its sides, so it better molds to the shape of the animal’s body. You can choose to fit the system with optional padded sides for your smaller and more delicate sheep or goat.
It comes with wheels that can be attached to the bottom, so you can easily move it around your yard, making your setup more mobile and adjustable to what you need on any given day. There’s a hitch on the front so you can tow it behind you, easy enough by hand.
