Combi clamps working chute

Postby twink » Sun Dec 25, 2016 10:17 pm

I ran across the Combi clamp made in New Zealand I believe. It looks like a sweet setup on youtube. I found one other thread on this forum from 2013 about the Combi clamp. Does anyone have any new info on them? Does any company in the USA make something like this? Or could a guy fab something like this? I like it from the angle that you don't have to flip the sheep on its side to trim hooves or that the other legs are not freewheeling in your face.

Yes, I realize they are being made in New Zealand but are they importing them or is a US company making something similar?

I added the video address because I didn't know what you were talking about and thought others might be in the same boat. I had not heard about them before your post.

This one is not quite the same and not US but right across the border at Winnipeg, MB. When I talked to them they seemed very accommodating.

They are made only 5 minutes from where I live. Great systems, but not economical for a farm as small as mine.
8.5 acres. 18-20 breeding ewes and 2 rams.
Running Polled Wiltshire sheep of a high caliber and trying to achieve a fully black equivalent without shedding/feet/worm resistance compromise.

Out of pure curiosity, what is the cost of the combi-clamp chute?

I just emailed the company and freight would be pretty expensive. The basic Combi Clamp would be roughly $4300 after converting to US dollars..Plus freight. A little more than I want to spend at this point...
