Portable Wheeled CorralOne man can easily set up our wheeled corral in just 7 min. It pulls behind a pickup, measuring 8 ft. wide and 36 ft. long in trans-port. Gross weight is about 5,000 lbs. It unfolds in the field by simply releasing the panels and then driving the pickup forward with the transport wheels turned inward.
The corral is made out of 2-in. steel pipe and has a brace for each panel. Height of panels is 5 ft. , 8 in. When unfolded it measures 66 ft. in length along each side and accommodates up to 140 head of 600 lb. calves or 80 head of 800 lb. cattle. Three different models are available with various configurations of loading areas, gates, alleyways, headgates, and loading ramps. Extended models are also available with extra panels that increase corral size by 40 percent. Our basic model sells for $6,360. (Leland Green, Wilson Mfg., Ind., P.O.
