The KVK Model 650-SP2 is an on-farm solution that is easy and simple to operate, while at the same time giving you the feeling of working like a professional. The chute is developed and designed to meet today’s growing demand for hoof trimming, while providing a high comfort to the hoof trimmer and livestock during the hoof trimming. The 650-SP2 is designed to perform hoof trimming of livestock between 200-900kg.
The KVK hoof support system
The unique KVK hoof support system provides a rigid surface to trimming against allowing for the hoof trimmer to use both hands for optimal workflow and more precise trimming. The hoof support plates can be manually adjusted in length and heigh making sure the hoof is support in the best way possible, which is important in the treatment or application of a block on the hoof.
Essential hydraulic functions
The model 650-SP2 is equipped with the essential hydraulic functions. The legs of the cow are lifted with help from the hydraulic winches and placed on the hoof support plates. During the lifting process the leg sleeves allow for an easy and gentle fixation. The hydraulic double belly band system provides comfort and stability for the livestock during treatment. The double belly band system also offers the possibility of using the chute for other treatment purposes.
Easy and simple to operate
The design of the 650-SP2 with a hydraulic lifting system, which can be individually adjusted, provides you with a good working posture during the trimming – making it easier for you to trim for longer periods of time. The chute is equipped with rubber plates under the feet, which makes it very stable and help reduce noise.
The side-hinged backdoor is designed to be part of the barrier when guiding the livestock into the chute, while open it blocks the flight route of the cow to the right side. At the same time the side-hinged back door enables the usage of the back door for storage purposes creating an easy access to the equipment needed for trimming such as knives, bandages etc.
The four LED working lights placed above all hooves gives a great view of the working area during the trimming, which is very important in the detection of illnesses.
The hoof trimming chute model 650-SP2 is fully galvanised making the surface of the chute very durable and therefore very resistant towards aggressive environments, which can be found on farms.
The floor of the chute is covered in a special rubber mat, which is very durable and made of a material which can withstand the usage of strong cleaning detergents. Furthermore, the rubber mat is designed with a non-slip surface and a technology the absorbs the weight of the cow into the mat, making it ideal for securing the footing of the cows.
The back of the floor is designed with a grid, so that faeces will not accumulate on the floor of the chute making it slippery and securing that the hoof is not covered in faeces and making it cleaning-friendly.
The 650-SP2 is developed and designed on the basis of the anatomy and movement of the cow, trying to make the chute as suitable as possible for the livestock undergoing trimming. Therefore, animal welfare and comfort have and will always be one of the key values in our development of our hoof trimming chutes.
On this basis, the manual front gates are designed to “catch” the animal in its movement into the chutes, while the gates open from the inside towards the outside. Therefore, the animal is not stopped abruptly in its movement. The opening and closing of the front gates are done manually by using the two different handles placed on top of the chute above the front gate. Furthermore, the front gate is individually adjustable in width, so it fit both smaller and larger livestock.
The front and back leg suspension are placed at an angle, which takes the cow’s natural movement into account and therefore does not put extra strain on joints and tendons, because it doesn’t force the cow’s legs into extreme positions.
All components on the chutes are handpicked to minimize noise, this can help reduce the stress levels for the cow, which creates a better cow-flow and working environment for cow and hoof trimmer.
