Reversible One Man Pig Holder
"It holds pigs up to 25 lbs. with either the head or butt end up," says Vince Koebensky, Buffalo, Minn., of the reversible "one man" pig holder he manufactures and markets.
The unit consists of a heavy base plate welded to a pedestal. Within the pedestal is a telescoping center shaft that provides accurate height adjustment for overall control and ease of handling. When working on pigs "head end up," the unit has two screw-on, U-shaped neck holders, available in 3 or 4 in. widths.
The hock stirrup assembly is adjustable up and down for body length and in or out for leg length. The stirrups also swing out of the way when not needed. A 24 in. circular tray below the center shaft swings left, right or completely out of the way.
No tools are required for any of the adjustments.
The unit sells for $79, plus $8 for shipping and handling. Standard equipment includes the unit with one working position 3 or 4 in. "head end up" holder, or "butt end up" holder (whichever you specify), base/tray, telescoping center shaft, and hock stirrup assembly. Additional holders (3 in. neck, 4 in. neck or butt) are available for $9 each, plus $2 shipping and handling.
