the s04 is the best chute for the money hands down.

To give you an idea.. with a foremost chute, it took us 2 day to run my herd.

With the S04 chute, we ran them in 3 hours.

That's an awful broad statement.

Absolutely no way I'd trade my For-Most for a Priefert, they're not even in the same ballpark when you compare apples to apples - as in an SO4 Priefert to a 450 For-Most.

well.. I stated that FOR THE MONEY its the best.


Sorry though, Your For most 450 is a loud, clanky, POS that no cow wants to go into. I've used that chute multiple times to run hundreds of head and it was a terrible chute.

Bought a priefert so4 couple years ago on sale for 3200 one of my better Investments, used just enough gravel to level a spot set it right on the ground have not had any issues with it, my biggest cow just barely fits in there last time I weighed her she weight 1765 she needs to go to town. I would hate to have anything smaller than the so4

I would also add that the priefert so4 when properly lubed can be very quiet
