SILENCER’S patented Noise Reduction System of 130 contact points sheathed in polyethylene ensures a significantly reduced noise level during operation. In addition to a quiet hydraulic pump system, we offer a chute without the usual steel on steel chatter.
Pivot Controls allow the chute control lever bank to be easily moved from one side by simply pivoting the chute controls. The Pivot Controls also adjust vertically up and down for maximum operator comfort. The new SILENCER Pivot Controls provide operator safety since the chute controls are available for operation of the chute on only on side of the chute at a time, as opposed to dual control chutes which requires additional and careful communication between chute operators on both sides to assure safe operation.
Pivot Controls are available on Ranch, Ranch Extended, Heavy Duty, Heavy Duty Extended, Commercial Pro, Commercial Pro Extended and Galvanized SILENCER Chute Models.
De-Horner Head Restraint
The hydraulically operated De-Horner Head Restraint pushes the animal’s head down making horns more accessible. The SILENCER De-Horner Head Restraint can be used along with the neck bar and the hydraulic head restraint. SILENCER’s headdoors can be released quickly at any time, even when the De-Horner Head Restraint is in use.
SILENCER’S angled, louvered blinds prevent animals from seeing humans in their flight zone when they enter the chute, and reduces hesitation in moving forward to the head gate. The operator’s sight is not hindered.
Side Exit available right, left or both; available on mechanical or hydraulic bottom. A dual side exit allows the chute to be used for fitting.
Hydraulic Lower Squeeze
Switch from 350 lb. to 2500 lb. animals with little or no adjustment with SILENCER’s total opening door system, using hydraulic lower squeeze.
A squeeze chute must have maximum body control of animal in order to get maximum head control with maximum neck access for precision vaccination placement. That means that a chute’s hydraulic lower squeeze must be a separate function from the top squeeze. And, the lower squeeze must be designed to be used continuously, like SILENCER’S.
Designed for operations requiring adjustment from large to small livestock quickly. Both sides adjust on SILENCER’s hydraulic lower squeeze. And, our hydraulic lower squeeze can accommodate a side exit on one or both sides, and allows a full-sized drop pan. Some chutes sacrifice the lower half of drop pan accessibility with a hydraulic lower squeeze.
Rear Walk Through Doors
Rear Walk Through Doors are recommended on SILENCER Extended Models, allows operator to step in behind animal for AI, semen checking, preg checking, embryo transfer, etc… SILENCER’S Walk Through Doors and Side Panels adjust to keep small cattle from turning around. SILENCER’S Rear Walk Through Doors are located inside the mainframe. SILENCER’S Taildoors stop on-coming cattle for maximum operator safety and efficiency.
Extra Neck Access
SILENCER’S head door is wrapped in rubber to prevent shoulder damage. The design minimizes choke-down with neck extension bars controlling head location, while allowing neck access. Bars are adjustable for different sizes of cattle. The only chute to provide 16″ of accessible neck area per sidegate: Consider the economic benefits of SILENCER’s extra neck access for precision vaccinating. 4″ of neck access room between the neck extension bars and the headdoor; 12″ extra neck access behind the headdoor. Only SILENCER provides the most neck injection area while still holding the animal securely for precision vaccination placement on 350 lb. to 2500 lb. animals.
SILENCER’s Neckbars are wrapped in rubber to prevent slippage and injury to the animal. The SILENCER headdoor design minimizes choke-down with neck extension bars controlling head location. The Neckbars allow neck access and adjust for different sizes of cattle.
Slated floor consisting of 3/4 ” high tensile rebar with a 3/4” spacing between. The rebar floor allows manure to fall through the floor of the chute keeping the chute cleaner during processing.
Drop Pans are constructed of high test 45,000 PSI steel and are designed for full access to the entire bottom of the animal; door can easily be removed by sliding lowered door to one side.
Half Drop Pan
Half Drop Pan is designed to give the operator partial access to the bottom of the animal, without having to lower the pan. The half drop pan can be used with the leg puller.
Hydraulic Head Restraint
Hydraulic Head Restraint is a quick efficient way to control the head for vaccinating, mouthing, drenching, tagging, RFID… and is designed to provide access to the neck area. Keep the animal calm by removing the opportunity to work itself into a frenzy jerking it’s head around. The head restraint adjusts for various sizes of livestock. A shear pin allows the head restraint bar to break away, preventing injury to the animal or damage to the equipment should operator error occur during the use of the restraint. A preset pressure relief valve that directs large volumes of oil at low pressure, assuring headgate quickness yet light pressure on the animal.
To use the hydraulic head restraints remove the standard neck extender bar located opposite the head restraint (The hydraulic head restraint in vertical position works as a neck extender with neck access when extra control of head isn’t required). Also, the hydraulic head restraint can easily be removed if not needed.
Hydraulic Leg Pull
With drop pan down or with half drop pan in place, spool out leg restraint rope, hook onto leg and pull leg back at a low pressure to lift the leg of the animal. The leg pull is to provide leg control while castrating, working with the foot, etc.
SILENCER power supplies include the top of the line Baldor 5HP electric motor and industrial hydraulic vane pump: available in 220 single and 3 phase; standard equipped with oil breather/fill cap, spin on filter and reservoir in a self-contained unit.
The Honda 6.5HP gas pump for use in remote operations is equipped with dual spool valve with pressure relief, reservoir, oil filter, female quick couplers.
SILENCER offers 2 different scale options: Platform Scales and Overhead Scales.
Low profile platform scale mounts keep scale low to ground for increased flow of animals in and out of chute.
Provide bullet proof operation in all environments. Designed to operate in three weighing positions. SILENCER’s Overhead Scales maximizes the life of scale components.
Weigh-Tronix Model 640 Weight Indicator
A better “weigh” to measure performance of your operation using a RS 232 Serial Port.
SILENCER offers 4 different carriers; Yoke, Carry-All, Overhead Carrier, and 4-Post Carrier with Overhead Scales.
