The new Racewell JR is our entry-level Sheep Handler. With simple-to-use pneumatic manual controls, this unit makes handling sheep easy!
HOW THE RACEWELL JR WORKS
The sheep are guided into the handler’s lead-up race and are prevented from backing up by anti-backing flaps on the side. When the sheep enters the handler, push-button controls allow the operator to catch the animal with the air operated clamp wall. This is manually activated, allowing you to catch animals in various positions depending on the task required. The clamp can be activated by a switch on the dashboard or on the lead-up race. Once the clamp is activated, the operator is free to move away from the handler and the animal will not be released unlike other manual handlers available in the market. If the unit is fitted with the optional draft gates, these can be adjusted from the dashboard before releasing the animal.
CLAMP WALL CONTROL
A catch button is set at the entrance to the lead-up race, allowing the operator to control the clamp wall of the handler when they are not at the handling section of the machine. This means you can get in behind a stubborn animal, push them into the clamp area and still catch them without having to rush forward. This makes working alone possible whereas other manual sheep handler's and crates available require two people to operate and bring animals in.
LEAD UP RACE
The Racewell JR comes standard with a leadup race, this is designed to hold the next animal before the handling section of the machine. The race has non-adjustable sides and features two anti-backing flaps. this ensures the next animal does not reverse out of the race while waiting.
