Hydraulic Cattle Squeeze Chute Options

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 hydraulic squeeze chute gas power pack

Hydraulic Power Pack - Gas

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

Customer Reviews


“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.
