Recent winner of the 2010 Australian Farm Journal Innovative Cattle Handling Equipment award at the Hamilton Beef Expo, the Air Q-Catch Crush from Arrow Farmquip is delivering a new dimension to headbail operation.

The new remote controlled, air assisted Air Q-Catch Crush is based on the proven design of the Arrow Farmquip Q-Catch Crush and is an ideal solution for today's OH&S requirements by reducing manual handling tasks, thus reducing the risks of injury.
 
Arrow Farmquip’s Air Q-Catch Crush is an innovative, cost-effective and simple to use crush, which, thanks to its unique Air Assist locking technology, makes cattle husbandry chores as simple as the push of a button.

An air-powered headbail is standard with the Air Q-Catch Crush, while an air-powered squeeze and rear door are optional and can also be operated from a remote control device. In the event of a power failure the Air Q-Catch Crush can also be operated manually.

The Air Q-Catch Crush's remote system and air valves are powered by solar panel technology, making this crush environmentally friendly as well.

Labour costs are greatly reduced with the Air Q-Catch Crush because the remote control device enables one worker to perform the tasks that would normally require two.

Air operated options to complement the Air Q-Catch Crush are: 

  • air-powered three way drafter
  • air-powered head holder
  • double parallel squeeze
  • two piece rear sliding gate. 
The Arrow Farmquip Air Q-Catch Crush unit runs on a minimum compressor capacity of 10-12 cfm.

The Arrow Farmquip Air Q-Catch range of crushes offers reliable, efficient and trouble free operation. They are teamed with an innovative, hi-tech silent locking mechanism which allows an easy remote operation and triple protection finish.

The Air Q-Catch Crush delivers the latest in design and safety features and are manufactured to strict quality control standards with a five year warranty.
