The hoof trimming chute model 1000-1 bull chute is the ideal solution where high demands are placed on a fast and efficient hoof trimming. Model 1000-1 is one of KVK’s top models, which in addition to the advantages of the 650-SP models also includes that all functions are fully hydraulic. This model is not only used by professional hoof trimmers, but is also increasingly used by farmers and veterinarians.
Based on 50 years of experience, the hoof trimming chute has been developed to meet the requirements of the present and the future, and special consideration has been given to operational reliability and solid construction. Model 1000-1 bull chute is designed for cattle between 500 to 2000 kg and developed especially for larger cattle, primarily bulls. Bull chute model 1000-1 is like our other models developed to protect the animals during hoof trimming. All hydraulic functions are damped in the hydraulic pressure so that the animal does not suffer any inconvenience.
Special attention has been paid to ergonomic work settings, as the chute can be adjusted to individual working heights. Efficient work lights are installed at all operating sites.
The 1000-1 hoof trimming bull chute meets the strict requirements of the Machinery Directive 98/37 / EEC. To support this, all hydraulic functions are pressure-adjusted so that these minimize the risk of damaging the cattle during hoof trimming.
The 1000-1 hoof trimming bull chute comes with hydraulic functions for the:
- Front winch

- Lifting and lowering the whole chute
- Four winches; one for each leg

The surface of the 1000-1 is powder-coated as standard which enables a very easy cleaning after hoof trimming. As an alternative, this chute can also be supplied as a galvanised version. In addition to this option, the customer can choose from various extras such as cup holders, LED work lamps, different extra functions and more. KVK is always open to customised ideas and implements them (if possible) upon customer request.
Functionality & animal welfare
The effective hoof support plates as well as the lifting of the box supports the hoof trimmer in performing a work that minimizes the risk of injury to the cow, as this enables the cow’s anatomical natural leg position not to be broken and thereby creates an overstretch. The individual hoof support plates ensure a proper and safe fixation of the hoof and allow the hoof trimmer to see the hoof from above and thus have an optimal view throughout the hoof trimming process.
The adjustment of the hydraulic functions ensure that the hoof trimming is carried out as gently and as stress-reduced as possible for the cow.
High level of reliability
Above all, the hoof trimming chute model 1000-1 bull chute is constructed and designed with a focus on reliability and a solid construction. Particular emphasis is placed on a good and ergonomic working position for the hoof trimmer, as the box can be adjusted to individual working heights. LED work lights are located at the work areas to ensure proper visibility throughout the work process.
