Hi-Hog’s hydraulic cattle squeeze chute reduces livestock stress and increases efficient cattle handling, all while keeping both stock and operator safe.
At 2,100 pounds, you will be hard pressed to find a chute offering better value per pound.
Benefit from a long list of low stress cattle handling features
- Both the head gate stanchion and tail gate open to the full 31” width of the chute for unrestricted livestock flow
- The head gate stanchions are parallel so your cattle are not at risk of choking
- The head gate is mounted with impact absorbing springs to minimize livestock bruising
- The parallel sides are gently sloped to naturally support your livestock without affecting the stability of their footing
- When the sides of the chute are squeezed, they move together and forward in a smooth parallel motion providing even pressure from the floor to the shoulder. The parallel motion keep your livestock centered, stable, and supported
- The interior of the bottom of the chute is enclosed with sheet metal. This protects your livestock from foot traps and sharp edges while also making it more difficult for your cattle to climb the sides
- All sheeted components are caulked for quiet, low stress operation
- The floor of Hi-Hog’s chute is made with heavy checker plate with large integrated 1.25" x 1.25" square traction bars to provide your cattle with confident and secure footing
- Both of the hydraulic pump options come with long hydraulic lines to allow you freedom to locate the pump away from the chute (where the noise and vibration of the pump will have a minimum impact on the stress levels of your livestock).
Outstanding Animal Access and Flow
- All chutes come standard with both a left and right side-exit
- Each side of the chute includes 7 access panels for unmatched animal access:
- 1 fully removeable shoulder-access panel
- 4 body-access panels
- 2 foot-access panels
- Both the foot and body access panels open and lay flat against the chute to maximize operator access.
- The chute comes with an adjustable neck extender which can be adjusted to provide 4 1/4”, 5 3/4”, or 7 1/4” openings between the head gate and the neck extender bars
- For greater head control, you can use the included ¼” x 90” chain and pigtail latches.
- If you don’t wish to use the neck extender you can quickly and easily remove it
- The chute can be set up for either left or right side operation (the factory settings are for left side operation)
- Both side exits can be easily opened and closed from either the left or right side of the chute
- All side access panels come with gravity slam latches that are fast and easy to operate with one hand, even with mitts on
For your safety
- A guard rail is included on the side exits to protect the body-access panel latches from livestock contact
- The foot-access panel latches include a slide lock for additional security when the panels are raised
- The side exit gates come with both slam latches and slide locks
- Alignment plates are included to restrict animals from distorting the side exit panels out of latch alignment.
- The rear two body-access panels include slots for a back-up bar.
- The hydraulic controls are mounted on a pivot arm for squeeze control where you want it (340 degree range)
- The squeeze chute comes with four hydraulic controls;
- head gate
- squeeze sides
- tail gate
- spare valve (use this to add hydraulic functionality where you wish)
- Each hydraulic circuit includes hydraulic line locks
- Pressures are set at the factory at 1200 psi
- Choose either an electric hydraulic pump or gas hydraulic pump
Quality Design, Construction and Materials
- The bottom track on the head gate and tailgate is designed for easy clean-out
- Each chute includes 26 grease fittings to ensure smooth operation year after year
- All primary hinge points are pre-greased with premium arctic grade grease for extreme weather use.
- Includes premium quality, 3/8” diameter, double braided, all weather, side-exit control ropes
- 60,000 psi high tensile North American heavy wall steel tubing
- Durable polyester powder coat paint finish
- The squeeze floor comes with pre-drilled holes to make it easy to add an optional sternum bar to your chute.
- The squeeze also includes built in lifting points so you can easily make your squeeze chute portable with the addition of Hi-Hog’s squeeze trailer
- If you require additional cattle head control you should consider Hi-Hog's optional hydraulic cattle squeeze head sweep attachment.
Hydraulic Pump Options:
Hydraulic Cattle Squeeze Chute with Electric Power Pack, Item No 1556
Hi-Hog’s 2 horsepower electric hydraulic pump is set at the factory to pump 1.5 gallons/minute at 1000 psi. The electric pump can run on either 110 V or, for best performance, 220 V.
Hydraulic Cattle Squeeze Chute with Gas Power Pack, Item No 1566
Hi-Hog’s 5.5 horsepower gas hydraulic pump offers 15.2 gallons/minute at low pressure and 3.3 gallons/minute at high pressure.
The power pack includes a by-pass valve which makes it:
- easier to pull start the engine
- faster to warm up to full operating temperature
- faster to warm the hydraulic oil in the tank.
If you have a pull start pump without a by-pass valve, you need to turn the engine over as well as the hydraulic pump and forcing the oil through the full length of the pressure and return lines. That is much harder

“This chute is quiet, heavy duty and built to last. The control arm allows us to run the hydraulic chute from numerous positions, while the cattle move through with ease. The chute design allows great accessibility for preg-testing, semen testing, and positioning calves to nurse. This has been a great addition to our cattle working operation.”
Noble Ranch - Bonanza, Oregon
The chute has cut our work time in half. we no longer need a hot shot, the cattle load themselves when it opens. Worst case, we have to use a poker stick. Don can work the cattle by himself if necessary, but his wife is willing to help now.
