    why wouldnt it, thats what its for, that and roads, it grades to both sides and tilts too.

    its a heavy outfit, but it could be toned down for agri use i thought if one was made.
    its not that complicated.

    no doubt your h iron is a cheaper job tho.

    Cheers Tinny, never knew the price.

    Had to redo the ratchet pawl in heavier steel, tried it on a cow & she bent it...works better than I thought it would, calves stand still instead of pulling & heavin like they usually do.

    We bolus cows for mag rather than use bucket licks & that's to be it's main use.
