Item Number: #1200 + #1201 First and Second Stage Roping Chute and Complete Timed Event Box

Hi-Hog’s Two Stage Roping Chute and complete timed event box provide a safe starting point for your riders, horses and stock. The Two Stage Roping Chute, designed to handle both calves and steers, is manufactured using minimum 60,000 psi, high tensile steel tubing. Built to PRCA and CPRA specifications.

Hi-Hog's complete timed event box provides your riders, horses and stock with a safe start.

The front of the timed event box utilizes a single U-frame to:     
  • align and anchor the roping chute
  • support the two sheeted 16' side panels
  • and support the two 12'w x 5'h heavy duty gates (mounted at 6' height)
The gate hinges are offset to allow the gates to open fully and lay flat against the arena interior. The top of the bottom U-frame tubing is buried 7.5" below grade.  The interior of the box panels are sheeted to a height of 48". The sheeted side panels include anchor points for controlling the barrier.

The release gate springs open and locks securely. This prevents the release gate from swinging back and adversely spooking your calf or steer.

The bottom half of the release gate is sheeted to keep feet contained. The top half of the release gate comes with open horizontal rails to keep your stock focused and facing down the arena.

Similarly, the contoured sheeting used on the bottom 35″ of both sides of the roping chute keep your stock facing forward with their legs and feet safely within the chute.

If you're on a budget you can create a simple lead-up alley by adding two, 8′ long x 5′ high,  Corral Panels (item #760) or two, 8’ long x 5’ high, Heavy Duty Panels (item 820). A 24″ wide Alley Spreader with a Gate (item #3360) will hold the panels in position at the back of the roping box. Similarly, you can create the sides of the box with Hi-Hog's 10' and 16' Corral Panels or Heavy Duty Panels. Budget solutions do not meet PRCA or CPRA specifications.
