FUNCTION


This section gives an overview of the most important components and
functions. If detailed information is available elsewhere in the manual, you are
referred to the specific sections.
The design of your crush may differ from the figures below.
2.1. Description of the main components SA0038
FUNCTION


The SA0038 was developed especially for dairy cattle hoof trimming and
treatment.
After the cow is strapped in the crush, the parts to be treated can be accessed
by opening the relevant side gates.
The main components of the crush are shown in the illustration below:

If one wants to open the front gate, it can be
done by turning the lever clockwise.
After the strap is attached round the hind leg as
shown in the photo above, the leg can be
hoisted using the manual hoist so the hoof can
be treated.
As an option, this operation can be done in
combination with the front legs by electric
motor.
Once the cow is moved into the crush, the belly
strap is attached behind the front legs. The belly
strap can be lifted using the manual hoist.
As an option, this operation can be done with
an electric motor.
The cow’s front leg can be winched to the front
leg support with a rope and hook so the leg is
secured and can be treated.
Optionally, the crush can be equipped with a
front leg support with electric winch in
combination with the hind legs.
This crush is equipped with a spring-loaded
rear gate.
After the cow is moved into the crush, the rear
gate is moved tightly against the back of the
animal and locked with a pin. The gate is
unlocked by pulling the rope on the right hand
side of the bar away from the bar. The bar
must be pressed tightly against the animal
during trimming, otherwise it will lay down.
The front gate can be set to 3 positions using
the operating rope:
Entirely open: the cow can exit the crush at the
front.
Partially open: the cow can move its head
through the front gate but not its shoulders.
Stationary position.
Closed: the front gate is closed behind the
animal’s head.
The side gates can be opened in all positions
so that the cow is accessible for examination
and treatment.
This component can be used to pull the head
forward and upward at an angle with a rope in
order to insert a bolus or drench. One side is
attached to the halter and the other can be
hooked to the shaft of the belly strap winch.

4. Installation
EXPLANATION

Consult the technical data and the circuit diagram provided for the correct
specifications.
4.1. Location
CAUTION



The machine must be transported and installed upright.
Place the machine on a level and stable substrate or on a platform
(LxWxH: 3.2 x 1.1x 0.25 m). The raised area is extended so that the animal
can take the first steps on the platform after leaving the crush. The crush
must be fixed to the ground with anchors.
Take account of the instructions in Section 3 when carrying out any activity.
Failure to follow these may lead to serious injury.
4.2. Connect the machine.
CAUTION





Check that the voltage specified on the machine plate matches the mains
supply.
The machine must always be connected to an earthed socket to avoid the
risk of fire or electric shocks (the earth connection is coded green/yellow).
The electrical installation including the sockets must be connected in
accordance with local regulations.
The power cable must always be free and nothing must be placed on top of
it.
Replace the power cable immediately if it is damaged.

CAUTION


Preparing for transportation is the reverse procedure to making ready for
use (see 4.1).
With crushes equipped with an axle and drawbar it is essential that all
locking mechanisms are correctly installed.
