Looking into getting a mobile cattle handling system and wondering what other people have and what they think of them.

We have one we built ourselves,
Cattle spread across 3 sites so very useful to be able to just drive in, lower the unit, hang gates and good to go.

Haven't ever used out in fields though, as we're usually not far from one of 3 concrete yards.

Forever Fendt

The GSF looks well made and is a squeeze as well if you need it the one drawback for me would be painted and not galvanised ,have used a port equip and armstrong and holmes both have drawbacks that could be improved on

Any pictures ?,sounds like you saved a fair bit DIY(y)

I've got photos some where will have a hunt when I'm in wi-fi

Didn't cost us much too do, it's built around a crush we already had, used abit of new steel but most was already here,
Hyd wheel mechanism came off a double-stack bale carrier.

New Hyd pipes and taps, stock board and 3 heavy gates sheeted with stock board (2x 16 ft &1x 12ft).

It's not kitted out with loads of hurdles though cause it's always backed on to a alley way or shed.

Going to put a permanent system in our furthest away place though.
