On each end of the alley, there are two sets of 6-foot gates that open between the split goose-neck hitch and the rear axle assembly.
The rancher has two sorting pens measuring 15-feet-6-inches both ways, with a height of all panels at 6 feet. This gives the rancher the ability to tie into the sorting system with any type of portable corral or stock trailer in the field.
A hydraulic system sets the unit down on the ground, and when ready to move, lifts it up for transport. The hydraulic system is operated by a 12-volt battery charged with a solar panel.
All systems are assembled with spring-loaded latches on the interior gates for added convenience. A 10-foot gate allows you to drive through the alleyway with a cattle cube box.
