The Diamond W Corral Sorting System will become a rancher's favorite piece of equipment when it comes to sorting cattle. This is a goose-neck unit that splits into two pieces for access in or out the front.
UNDERSTANDING THE HARDWARE
There is a 6' alley way in the center of the unit that is 33'4" long. On each end of the alley there are two sets of double 6' gates that open between the split goose-neck hitch and between the rear axle assemblies. This gives the rancher the ability to tie into the sorting system with any type of portable corral or stock trailer in the field. This unit's hydraulic system will set the unit down on the ground, and when ready to move lift it up for transport. The hydraulic is run by a 12 volt battery charged by a solar panel.
SETTING THE SYSTEM UP
When this unit is down on the ground the rancher can begin unfolding the panels. Rear panel #1, on a caster wheel, unfolds first. Then #2 panel will swing out on the caster wheel carrying the #3 with it. The #3 panel is lifted off the #2 panel and moved into place and locked with a double chain. Next step is to release the #4 panel and roll into place. Lift the #5 panel from the #4 panel and roll into place, double chain this #5 to the #2 & #3 panel. This is one side of the sorting system completed. The rancher has 2 sorting pens measuring 15' 6" x 15' 6". With a height of all panels at 6'. Repeat steps for the opposite side.
There are two gates to each pen on each side of the alleyway. The flow of the cattle starts at the rear of the unit. There is a gate for each pen that will angle cattle into each of the 4 pens. This allows for separating the cattle as they are fed into the system.
After the cattle have been separated, if the rancher needs cattle in a different pen, there are gates that will open to let cattle angle across the alleyway or go straight across the alleyway.
After cattle are moved into separated groups then loading cattle through the front split goose-neck hitch and by using the double 6'gates that fold out to stock trailers or working circle tubs can be done. This helps in the fact that a rancher can work cattle in the field without moving the whole herd to a different location to do the sorting and loading out
