Portable Installation

The load bars are bolted to either an aluminum Tru-Test platform or a custom/ranch-made platform. This platform is generally placed in an alley near a head gate or squeeze chute. Installation is easy... simply use the included bolts and bolt the load bars to the platform through the platform’s pre-drilled holes. The system is light enough that two adults can move it around as needed.

Permanent Installation

The load bars/cells are bolted to concrete and either bolted to the squeeze chute directly or through a bracket (depending on the chute). Note that though the load bars must be bolted to concrete, the chute itself does not have to be mounted in concrete. This installation process can be involved as it also requires lifting of the chute during the installation process.
