Sculling Gates

Sculling Gates
 
Cashels Crush Front Gates come in three designs. All gates are hot-dip galvanised as standard.
The Cashels Standard Sculling Gate is available as a left hand or right hand unit – please specify on ordering.  A right hand gate means that from the cow’s position, the crush rails are on the right hand side.  The gate can be firmly secured in place by cementing to a supporting wall opposite the crush rails.
The Cashels Semi Automatic Sculling Gate has a moveable handle so that it can be operated from the left or right hand side.  When the gate is opened it will automatically close, ready for the next animal. One side of the gate is adjustable for various sizes of cattle.  Designed to be compatible with the Standard Crush, Gate Type Crush or Mobile Crush.
The Cashels Fully Automatic Sculling Gate is designed to be compatible with the Standard Crush, Gate Type Crush or Mobile Crush.  It has two additional features over and above those offered on the Semi Automatic gate:

It has a greater opening width before engagement to minimise cases of the animal refusing to enter
When the animal is driven forward the gate closes on the neck.  When opened to release, the gate automatically moves into the fully open position, ready to receive the next animal

Crush Runs

Crush Runs
Cashels offer a complete range of parts to build various types of fixed Crush runs.  Two basic forms are possible with optional designs of front gates.  Both can be built to cater for different location situations, i.e. left or right handed.

The Standard 20’ Crush consists of an end gate, endpost, centre post, 3no. crush rails and a front gate of any of the types shown opposite.

All parts are hot-dip galvanised for maximum corrosion resistance and long life durability
Posts can be left or right handed
Three options of front gate are possible (see previous page for details)
Heavy duty specification of all parts for maximum robustness
The end gate can be hinged on the left or right hand side

The Gate Type Crush is shown above and is available with different front gates (see previous page).  Features as above but also include:

The side of the crush is formed by easily removable gates every 6’6”.  This is of great advantage if an animal goes down in the crush as they can easily be released
The 6’6” side gates can be opened from either side by simply removing the coupling rods
