    Seems a good price if it includes VAT and if it locks on to the weight when the animal steadies itself.
    Most I’ve priced are €1400 inc vat.

    Done that here . But made a full crate not just a base unit . Planning on changing it now though . Have it setup with the headgate in it . But plan is to move it back the chute so the headgate is not part of it anymore . Hard on the weighcell`s having the 2 together

    Thanks. Any pic of platform set up. Would like to set up own but hard to justify €1400 an don’t really need anything to make up €2k grant eligible. Limerick link I think €650 odd incl for bars an clock.

    Here you go lad . It’s been lengthened by about a1ft as before cattle had to put there head through the gate to be fully on it . Longer you make it the better . Cattle are more likely to want to stand up on it / stay standing on it .
