They get the job done, TS sells the cheapest line tarter makes.
But it gets it done well for the money. I wouldnt want to work 200 or 300 head a year with one, but for most farms with less than 40 head the TS headgate is good.
The chute and working pens (if you are not buying the whole system) are more important to ease of working cattle than the headgate anyways.

That is a Filson from the looks of it. Used my neighbors a couple times, not too bad. I don't like the back gate or the swinging saloon door type headgates on any of them.
Show $1519 when I type in my zip code, big difference.
