Powered Carcass Cart
The machine measures 21 in. wide and 3 1/2 ft. long with 3-ft. high handlebars. It has rollers with teeth on its front half that grab a dead animal and pull it onto the sled. Pulling the animal up involves starting the rollers and driving forward at the same time. To unload you simply reverse the rollers.
Maximum weight is up to 300 lbs. so itís not meant for sows. When the pig is fully loaded on the cart, most of the weight is over the axle. Top speed is about 3 mph. Sells for about $7,000.
