All Forcing Pens are built for heavy-duty work. Made with powder-coated steel, the Forcing Pen is designed to withstand extreme weather conditions for long-term use. For added stability, the panels are bolted together and stabilised by joiner bars that connect to the centre of the pen.
Force Gate Lock
The force gate automatically locks into position as you move the sweep through the pen, ensuring cattle cannot push back on the gate and cause injury to the handler. For quieter operation, the force gate lock features a rubber bushing to cushion the impact on the panels and reduce metal clanging. When not in use, the force gate lock can be disengaged to pull the gate back in a smooth motion.
Fully Sheeted Sides
The fully sheeted sides on the Forcing Pens safeguard cattle, as there are no foot traps or opportunity for them to injure themselves in the forcing pen. This sheeting allows the handler to use point of balance handling techniques to assist with cattle movement.
The exit gate comes standard on all Forcing Pen Models and is located next to the race entrance, ensuring operator safety in the event that you must enter the pen with an animal.
Left-Hand vs Right Hand Configuration
All Arrowquip Cattle Forcing Pens are available in left or right-hand configuration. To determine the hand you need in your cattle working system, stand facing the crowd gate and look at the direction of the sweep. If it rotates counterclockwise, it is left-hand. If it rotates clockwise, it is right-hand. If you require assistance determining the hand you need, contact the Arrowquip Team.
