Whether you call them crushes, cradles or chutes…we know just how to build them.

MARK IV and V Deer Crushes:
Made to order in about 4 to 6 weeks. Front door hinge and operator side is customer's choice.
   (right side is the side on right as it is viewed from the front.)
Advise customer not to line with padding.
Must be shipped in one piece.
  The MKIV are approximately 675 pounds and the MKV is approximately 775 pounds (with rear door).
Crush is designed for indoor use. Outdoor plywood at additional cost.
Unit is not designed to accept platform scale system. Weighing system should be independently installed
   at some other location due to frequency of weighing versus complete constraint.

OPERATION of MARK IV and V Deer Crushes:
Deer enters open end. One lever manually releases floor when deer is fully entered.
Deer gently falls to "squeeze" fit and can be constrained further with top line, fast-action clearing.
Tag, exam, medicate deer.
Release of deer is accomplished with an easy-open second lever allowing weight of deer to move entire
   operator side panel. Deer is gently lowered to the ground without trauma.
   Exit door should be opened simultaneously with second lever action.
Return operator side panel; and restore connection. Return drop floor, with drop floor rope and restore connection.
   Crush is ready for next deer. Front door is a Dutch-type door, which allows greater access to front of the deer
   if necessary.
