+1. There are tension locks on each side of head gate and one on top for the squeeze.

They keep taking up slack. I like the technology.

Priefert says to not lubricate them. If ours has been sitting a long time, I squirt WD40 in them to loosen anything in the latch then hose it down inside and out with starting either to get the lubricant out.

I have used a neighbors a time or two. He uses white lithium grease on his, locks, latches, rollers, everything. It seemed that the last time i helped him the catch wasn't staying shut. They were pulling out of it. Had to physically hold the lever while he did his thing. I'm assuming the thick grease is the culprit…

I went over it last night with lube. Everything except for those two roller lock mechanisms. I had seen on their website it says to use WD40 only.

use anything other than WD40 and you will most likely regret it. I try to keep mine pressure washed, as it will help prevent rust.

I wash mine immediately after each use. Manure and urine are tough. The one negative is the paint coat. Mine has peeled in places. The best paint coat in the world is Caterpillar. It stays and stays.

Anyone use this stuff? It was recommended to me for my tongue latch on my trailer and it works really well. Wondering about the chute?

If you contact Priefert they will probably send you paint for it for free

That's a fact Jack! The dealer I bought mine from was adamant about that. Oil or grease will collect dust and gum them up.

Thanks, i saw those yesterday.

I watched a video on how to use it right, they've thought of about everything haven't they… We hated to spend that much money, even at that price. But i think/hope we've bought into a lifetime thing with Priefert. I'm thinking we should be able to get our money back when/if we sell it.

The video is excellent. You will benefit watching it. The guy who does the demo has been with them a longtime and has made design suggestions
