Hi-Hog’s bucking chutes are designed from the ground up to deliver you enhanced safety, reliability, and functionality. This is a big, strong, lean and responsive chute.

From foundation to finish this is a superior set of bucking chutes.

The strength begins with a solid skid frame foundation built with 4.5” OD, 0.337 wall tubing. The durability continues up through the rugged chute frame made with 3.5” OD 0.225 wall tubing. You will find top quality materials throughout the design, from 10, 11, and 14-gauge hot roll metal sheeting to Hi-Hog's  architectural grade powder coat finish with UV inhibitors. This is no lightweight. At over 2,200 pounds there are few bucking chutes with this level of build quality.

A strong and agile bucking chute.
Great care has gone into the design to deliver you outstanding functionality and highly responsive controls. The offset hinges allow the release gate to swing back flat against the face of your bucking chutes. The hinges include custom-made greaseless Tivar bushings for exceptionally smooth performance. Additionally, the hinges have been set in a contoured frame to minimize hazardous projections, improving the safety and security of both stock and rider.

Responsive and reliable release latch
The release gate latch provides exceptional responsiveness and reliability. The solid spring-loaded lever latch is set in two heavy steel guides lined with Tivar® for near frictionless operation. To ensure the gate responds quickly under pressure the solid square steel plunger glides on another sheet of Tivar®. Tivar® components use high grade Tivar® with UV inhibitors for outdoor use.

Tivar® provides:

  • excellent abrasion resistance
  • low coefficient of friction
  • no moisture absorption
  • corrosion resistant
  • excellent noise abatement
  • excellent impact strength
  • maintains key physical properties to -30° C

Many bucking chutes include open slots behind the latch of the release gate. These open slots can get you in a lot of trouble very quickly. This gap is all a bull needs to reach a horn through and open the gate on their own. To avoid this hazard Hi-Hog has installed a steel guard behind the latch controls.

Large, open and efficient catwalks
Keeping spectators happy has a lot to do with the efficiency of operations behind the bucking chutes. To make this job easier Hi-Hog widened the catwalks to just over 51 inches and surfaced the catwalk with heavy expanded metal mesh to ensure excellent traction at all times.

Operator friendly rolling doors
To make life behind the chutes even better Hi-Hog eliminated the upper door rail. The rolling doors travel smoothly on a shortened upper track with support from a lower track and guide. With the upper door rail gone movement behind the chutes is wide open for more efficient operations.

The door frame is filled with heavy 10-gauge sheet metal and then the lower 4’ of each door is clad with an additional protective layer of 3/4” rubber.

Hi-Hog's door locks are simple and safe to operate and lock automatically when closed.

To ensure stockmen and competitors can easily access the elevated walk we offer optional stairs complete with handrail. These stairs are designed to pin on to the center of any catwalk section.

Large walkways for easy access

NOTE:To facilitate shipping the walkway can be folded up against the side of the chute.

Modular Components

Hi-Hog’s bucking chutes are based on a modular design which makes it easy to start with one chute and add additional chutes at a later date. The starting chute includes two blocking gates. Additional chutes include only one block gate. To attach Hi-Hog panels directly to the last chute you will require the panel adapter frame. This panel adapter frame bolts to the end chute and includes connectors which will tie in with any Hi-Hog panels.


 


Bucking Chute Components:
The Bucking Chutes are available in left hand or right hand release options. When the bull is in the chute, his nose will be at the hinge end of the chute. If the release gate is on the bulls right side the chute is referred to as a right-hand chute.

Customer Reviews

5 Star Bucking Bulls support for Hi-Hog bucking chutes

Bucking Chutes at 5-Star Bucking Bulls

“Hi-Hog’s Chutes” have been an incredible addition to our bull riding event. These chutes are heavy-duty, but yet durable enough to make them easy to handle. The set-up of these chutes takes no time at all, just set them down, line them up, and slide together to bolt. The rolling divider gates between each chute is a great addition too instead of having the roller on the top and having to duck around it while flanking, Hi-Hog puts the track on the bottom and gives you all the room one needs to walk back and forth on their platforms without worrying about hitting a track.


The Hi-Hog chutes benefits animal safety also; these chutes have nice rounded edges to reduce the risk of having any animals getting cut or injured. The spacing of the bars on the chute gates are also adequately spaced to cut down immensely on the possibility of an animal getting its leg caught in between the bars.


Hi-Hog also uses a 1-motion latch system so when the gate is being pulled, the person on the latch end can help throw the gate while in the same motion as opening it. Since getting these chutes last summer, we have used them at 3 different venues and have received multiple complements from bull-riders, bronc riders and contractors on how nice they work, feel and perform. I encourage anyone that is looking to purchase chutes to buy a Hi-Hog. We are glad we did!

Lakeland College has had the same set of hi-hog bucking chutes in the Arena for as long as I can remember. I went to school here 15 years ago and all that has changed is a few coats of paint. I have never had any concern for safety with any of the students or livestock in these chutes. There have been no sharp edges or openings where any of the stock has been injured or hung up in. I have been to several different Rodeo’s where I have seen animals get their legs hung up in the strangest spots, that has never been an issue with our chutes.


We recently hosted a PBR and a Bull Riding school and had over 300 bulls go through the chutes, we replaced one nylon rope on a gate latch. The chutes operate very well and are built solid with very little noise or banging when they are used which keeps stock calm while inside them. I have never had to do any structural work on the chutes and can honestly recommend these chutes to anyone who is looking.
