TSC is running $4k for new HD ones. Neighbor spotted 2 HD units, one at local used dealer and other on Craigslist, both $1800 area. So they're out there.


I can buy a new Priefert S04 for $3600. No palp cage. No dolly. As far as used you won’t find them on Craigslist in Middle Georgia. I do see some in Florida and Tennessee occasionally. We have a a Dept of Ag publication called the Market Bulletin. There will occasionally be one in there but they’re usually in N Georgia and unless you can just pick up and leave right then the chute will be gone before you can usually get there. Neighbor bought one from another neighbor that was selling out. S01 w/ cage and dolly. Floor is rusted out. Pd $1800. Offered him his money back. But he declined.

The talking heads sometimes mention buying collectable, or soon to be collectable, equipment that will appreciate. Have you seen any tractors like this?


Deere 20 series. 3020 in particular.

As far as squeezes go, they are fairly regular around here, at a decent price unless you have to have the latest and greatest . I ran one to 350, and got beat out at 400, good solid chute, just old latch technology . The guy didn't take it and when I went back to pick up my other stuff , the auctioneer asked me if I wanted it , for 400 of course , I offered him 300

I’ve got a model 91 headgate that I’m gonna put on whatever I find unless I find a Priefert chute that already has the 91 headgate. Type of chute really doesn’t matter to me as long as it’s got a tailgate and squeezes. I really don’t like a rope operated tailgate but I can make do as it’s better than what I’ve got.

Michael,
If you see a deal on a Priefert automatic squeeze chute in N. Ga or Tn, let me know. I might be interested.

Figure out what you want and don't want then just wait till a deal comes along on what you want.

Been waiting 6 years. I guess the moral of this story is that if I’ve made it the last 6 years without a squeeze then I can make it indefinitely. But boy the times I wish I had one. The headgates do serve the purpose however. Guess it’s like comparing a Fiesta to a Mercedes.

I'll check around, I saw a couple sell in Madison last fall at a Angus dispersal sale. I think a couple sold last January in the big Dothan auction also. Every time a calf snatches it head out of my old WW I tell myself I need to buy a used Priefert. If I buy new it will be an Arrow, there's no manual chute out there as good.

I’d appreciate that. The biggest reason I’d like a Priefert is due to the fact that I’ve got cows at 3 different farms and the Priefert dolly works good. But I’m sure my welder buddy down the road could fabricate something up for any chute if the price was right.

I'd rather not have one and contract it out than have junk. If you can't afford that better off not being in business.

Im lucky to get every thing done when all the equipment works and things go half butt right. The bad thing is I actually like working on stuff... just don't have the time.
