Clipex sheep handlers have an uncompromising design, according to a company spokesman.
This design enables them to weigh and draft up to 800 sheep an hour, handle 300 sheep an hour and crutch 120 sheep an hour.
“The full tilt function also provides you access to the whole animal at a standing height,” the spokesman said.
“We believe Clipex sheep handlers and our patented pre-catch section have revolutionised sheep handling.
“We think it is more important you hear real stories and real results from some of our customers.”
As a farmer for more than 60 years, John Manchester knew it was important to take his time and find an innovative solution to help him keep up with the increase in fleece weight and industry requirements.
He also needed something to help alleviate the heavy workload for him at his age.
“The Clipex sheep handler has taken a lot of hard work out of it,” Mr Manchester said.
“It is just so efficient in doing many jobs.
“We tend to do multiple jobs when we work with the Clipex sheep handler and it works very well.
“It’s made a hell of a lot of difference.”
Jack Glasson runs a fine wool Merino operation of 14,500 sheep and recently needed an innovative solution to help him save costs on labour.
As soon as Mr Glasson tried the Clipex sheep handler, he couldn’t believe how much efficiency improved on other areas of his farm too.
The Clipex sheep handler has taken a lot of hard work out of it. It is just so efficient in doing many jobs.
“You can start to do a lot more treatment and processes in one go while getting a lot more information back out of it such as your weights,” Mr Glasson said.
“The something that has also impressed me would be the manoeuvrability.
“Compared to other machines on the market, there is nothing as movable as this – it is just so easy.”
Mr Glasson also appreciates the patented Clipex pre-catch backing plate,
“It is absolutely brilliant because it lets the sheep flow more,” he said.
“They draw through a lot better and it just makes the machine a joy to work with.”
