At Arrowquip, we believe in innovative design and engineering while taking care of the producer and the operation. Introducing Arrowquip’s new Q-Catch 86 Series Manual Squeeze Crush, the quietest crush ever manufactured. Engineered with a variety of features for dependable strength as well as safe, simplified, low-stress cattle handling. Complete with the new easy operation single handle second-generation head holder, this holds and releases the animal’s head more safely and easily, giving you maximum control while keeping the animal calm. The ergonomically friendly single handle push to close, pull to open Q-Catch head gate can be operated from anywhere along the crush, making it easy for one person to operate. The new wide needle gate design gives better access when branding or needling, while the removable inspection gates are easy to adjust for various positions, giving producers multiple animal access options. With full side access to either the top, bottom or the entire animal, you can manage your cattle quickly, easily, and efficiently. Two rows of engineered composite rump fingers further the quietness of the crush, as well as ensure the rump bar can be used for any size animal. The new vet cage design comes standard on the Q-Catch 86 Series, and includes an anti-swing cam slam latch to eliminate the door swinging through unexpectedly. The door can also open entirely to the inside, giving it 180 degrees maneuverability when needed. An innovative rolling door on poly rollers and rubber guides allows for both off-side and near side operation, and can be operated from either side of the Q-Catch 86 Series. Precision manufactured high quality parts, powder-coated steel, and all bars are square shaped to increase strength, as well as reduce pressure points on the animal. The Q-Catch 86 Series features a full length squeeze that squeezes from 29½ down to just 7½, making operating even the smallest calf up to the largest bull efficient and safe. Arrowquip’s molded rubber floors allow animals better traction, and dramatically reduces noise. Poly compound rubber protected steel parts on all quick release latches and rubber spring hinges make the Q-Catch 86 Series the quietest manual cattle crush ever. With Arrowquip, you’re guaranteed maximum efficiency, resulting in higher profits, and more time to do the things that truly matter to you and your family. This is innovative cattle handling like never before, and is a new global standard in the cattle handling industry. This is the new Q-Catch 86 Series cattle crush. The bar has been set.Hide Transcript Text

Cattle Crush Rubber Floor
Rubber floors are proven to reduce stress, increase efficiency and improve the health of your cattle. Arrowquip’s maintenance-free, removable rubber flooring brings livestock comfort into the cattle crush, making it as low-stress as possible.
The Q-Catch 86 Series parallel squeeze is unlike any other cattle crush in the industry. The push-pull squeeze handle never needs to be adjusted to work cattle of varying sizes, as the 750mm width fits the largest bull and can squeeze down with ease to 197mm to suit the smallest calf. The squeeze locks in place in any position, ensuring you have all the control you need.
A Crush that Simplifies TB Testing
The Q-Catch 86 Series cattle crush is an ideal solution for TB testing, offering better access to the neck of the animal than other crushes on the market. The 324mm TB access area right at the front of the crush allows your vet or testing personnel can easily access the neck of your cattle to complete SICCT testing. Access to the neck is available on both sides of the chute, ensuring that you can complete testing quickly and effectively. An added bonus with the Q-Catch is that it is a low-stress environment for your livestock, so handling them regularly will not cause unnecessary stress.
