The Corbin Steel Squeeze Chute is the most complete and largest squeeze chute available. The options that everyone else offer on their squeeze chutes come standard with the Corbin Steel Squeeze Chutes.

  • The Corbin Steel Squeeze Chute is built with 2" x 11ga square for the rails and posts
  • The bottom frame of the squeeze chute is 2" x 3/16" square tube to ensure long life
  • The hinge post for the squeeze chutes are 2 3/8" OD x .150 pipe and are gusseted at the top and bottom to stand up to everyday use
  • The overall measurements of the Corbin Steel Squeeze Chutes are 42" wide and 12' long, making it one of the heaviest built chutes available
  • To operate the squeeze chute there is one handle that will attach to either side allowing operation of the squeeze chute from both sides
  • The squeeze chute will adjust from 32" wide down to 14" so it will handle the smallest calves up to some of the largest bulls
These frontal photos of the Corbin Steel Squeeze Chute show the auto catch head gate with the neck crowding bar. The two handles on the right side operate the lock for the automatic headgate that allow it to open or hold the cow in place and the handles on the left are for the neck crowding bar. The neck crowding bar on the squeeze chute will lock out of the way as shown above and, with it locked back, the automatic headgate will open to the front.

The automatic headgate that comes with the Corbin Steel Squeeze Chute will open out to 28" allowing most anything that comes in the chute to go out the automatic headgate. To make this automatic headgate easier and safer to operate we have put a safety bolt that adjusts how wide the headgate can open to the back which will help eliminate the trouble of hiplock.

This photo shows the neck crowding bar shoved across all the way. The curved design of this bar not only holds the cows head from side movement but limits the up and down movement as well.
This photo shows the squeeze chute with both side exit gates open and the clipping bars in the front setting.

The clipping bars on the squeeze chute can be used with the working sides squeezed in or fully open and the working sides can be squeezed in when the clipping bars are in place.
This photo shows the squeeze chute with both side exits open and the clipping baers removed.

The ropes shown in the photo allow closing and opening either side exit gate from the opposite side of the squeeze chute.
The Corbin Steel Squeeze Chute also comes with nurse gates on both sides allowing access to both sides of the cows udder or to the feet of the animal in the squeeze chute.
There are three extra large drop gates on each side of the squeeze chute. These drop gates can be dropped one at a time or all can be dropped a once to allow full access to the animal.
The side drop gates of the squeeze chute can have rubber added to them to serve as a blinder if desired. The spacing between the drop gates will allow reaching through without having to drop them depending on what is being done with the animal in the squeeze chute.
The Corbin Steel Squeeze Chute is equipped with a palpation gate on each side to allow access from either side or pass through. The latch on each palpation gate of the squeeze chute is easy to open, inside or outside the squeeze chute, with an elbow if your hands are full or even with your shoulder with the tall cowboy latch that comes on each gate (shown in picture to the right).

One of the biggest advantages of the palpation cage on the Corbin Steel Squeeze Chute is that it is built into the working sides so it will close in with the squeeze chute and not leave a large turning point for smaller animals at the entry of the squeeze chute.

To keep cattle from getting to the person in the palpation cage there is a large sheeted horizontal sliding gate on the rear of each squeeze chute that can be closed and latched (shown below).
The sliding gate comes standard opening to the left side of the Corbin Steel Squeeze Chute. To accommodate someone needing to operate from the opposite side, we can build it on the right side in production or we can add a handle that will allow right handed operation without changing the gate in production; it would still open to the left of the squeeze chute.
These rear photos show the squeeze chute fully closed to 14" and fully open to 32".
The photo above shows the removable brisket bar at the front of the squeeze chute. The brisket bar is used in the squeeze chute to keep cattle from going to the ground when working them.

The photo at right shows the 3/4" solid rod floor stops spaced every 12" ensuring that all cattle will have adequate traction when going through the squeeze chute. It also shows the ratcheting butt bar from inside the squeeze chute.
Towards the rear of the squeeze chute, directly in front of the palpation cage, is a spring loaded, no-back gate that will keep cattle in the chute if not caught in the automatic headgate yet. This no-back gate is very helpful for one man operation of the squeeze chute.
The ratcheting butt bar on the Corbin Steel Squeeze Chutes is very helpful when trying to move stubborn cattle into the headgate. As the pictures show, the bar is long enough to wirk it at an angle or straight to get the leverage needed to ease the animal forward in the squeeze chute.

The squeeze chute also has a pipe on each side that is for storing the butt bar so that it is out of the way but easily and quickly accessible.
The squeeze chute uses a friction lock to hold the sides in place wherever the handle is stopped.

To release the squeeze chute pull the rope directly in front of the squeeze handle down. This will allow the lock rod to slide back when the squeeze handle is pushed up.
