The E-Z Knocking Pen brings new convenience and safety to the small slaughter house. Currently in use at the USDA Research facility and Universities Across the United States. Made in Fort Worth, TEXAS. Custom made in either Left or Right Discharge or even Free Standing.
This unit is all mechanical and does not use any electricity or hydraulics.
The hog walks into the Restraining Trap until its weight trips the bottom.
Bottom falls away, wedging the hog between the sides. The operator is then able to stun the hog with a humane stunner and trip the latch, releasing the hog on its side for easy shackling. The Restraining Trap is balanced to trip and return without using air or hydraulic assistance. The E-Z Hog Restraining Trap is sturdily built for long, hard use. It is made of heavy-duty Stainless Steel, Galvanized mild steel or Painted mild steel.
For about 40 years we have been helping Meat processors Design and Build Free Standing Rail Systems that will fit in their existing building. Free Standing means none of the customers existing structure is used to support the rails and product load.
