Those are really nice. They have a lot of stuff I wish the preifert had. The down side is it is twice price tag. If i could justify it I would do it in a heart beat.

Curious if Arrow and Lakeland Farm & Ranch Equipment are related companies? This Arrow chute looks similar but with some differences to Lakeland's current line.

Arrow makes the chute, Lakeland is just a middle man - slaps their own sticker on. I have a suspicion that deal is now over as I have seen Real Tuff/Tuff/Sioux Steel chutes (painted dark green of course) now being marketed as Lakeland's premier chutes for the last few months. I have thought of calling to find out the price, just to see how much they are gouging over Tuff prices.

Nothin' prettier than a red Ford truck, a Massey Ferguson tractor and a red-n-white Hereford sittin' on the farm.

I contacted tuff for curiositys sake when I saw them advertised locally - I wanted to see what one would cost picked up directly from them in manitoba - they were over 500 more than the local price. So who's gouging there?

Likely some side deal set up with local dealer to make it worthwhile for him. I know a number of companies that do the same thing when distance is an issue.

You do realize where you live in comparison to the actual farming core of the country right? How farm products from the Prairies don't end up costing you almost double is beyond me.

When I asked it was the same price, but I am only 300 miles from the factory. The owner, Alan Comte, is a h3ll of a nice guy.

Just got a Tuff this weekend - Palp cage, auto head gate with neck extenders, and brisket bar. I think I looked at pretty much every chute made. Hope it works as good as it looks like it will. Only negative is it could be pretty loud with all the slam latches, but the convenience should make up for it.

As far as I know Arrow is an Australian company, I am pleased that most people consider it to be a nice product. Most of the features it has in common with other Australian made chutes. So it is putting our ideas out there into a very critical market.
