During the past 2 years, a remote operated 12 volt powered roping chute has been developed in parts of Colorado and Texas. It is not limited to roping, but probably the greatest use at the present time.
The front gate remote-release portion is not by any means a new product. However, when the front gate closes after the steer exits, the rear gate opens automatically. The rear gate then closes behind the steer after it enters. The back gate latch mechanism keeps the steer from backing up in the chute. The energy to operate this simple mechanism is created by the animal entering the chute and depressing a platform, in the floor, down 4 inches.
It is very easy on livestock and requires less manual labor. The Chute Help can be placed virtually anywhere and still maintain the convenience of an automatic roping chute. This product has had tests for two years and has had an estimated 20,000 thousand cycles. One of the biggest advantages is that no high voltage electricity or compressed air is required.
The Chute Help is available now.
