New Crutching Flap for Racewell Sheep Handlers

New Crutching Flap for Racewell Sheep Handlers

How it works:

When the side tilt is tipped over, a rear section of clamp wall on the handler can be opened up 90 degrees at the push of a button. With the sheep still clamped in the handler and now tilted on their side, the crutching flap up gives you full access to the back of the animal to clip down the legs or do a half belly. When you're finished a single button or foot pedal push closes the flap and returns the animal to the upright position.

Side Access Flap Improvement

We've also made a change to the side access flap on the latest models of Racewell Handlers. This access flap was originally a bolt on piece that had to be unbolted if you wanted to remove it. Now it’s on a cam lock hinge so it can be easily swung out of the way. The reason for this is when your dagging in a Racewell your probably doing it standing up, just giving the sheep a sweep across the back end. With the sheep clamped in the handler and the side access flap swung out of the way you’ve got that access to do that.
