Looking to jump into hauling feeder cattle here pretty soon. Have a solid and consistant gig lined up with a local company and trying to get some final things straightened out and could use some advice. I've been trying to find a used cattle pot that is what I want and will work good for me (Wilson, EBY or even Merrit 50-53' Spread, 3/4 Jail, Crank Up Nose) and they are very hard to find in good shape. Every one I find is wore out, and if decent the price seems a little steep for a used pot. What does a new cattle pot like so run price wise? On others experience is it worth it to buy a new pot if the price between new and used is only a couple thousand is the long run? If I plan on running it until it forever or until it is wore out is it worth it, or get a used one and have to fix it up? How did yall start out equipment wise?

All help is appreciated, Thanks!

My personal opinion, need to find someone to help you get started and some experience. I started with an older 96 inch wide trailer that taught me to respect it and not be afraid of the movement. I hate to see anyone get hurt in the business loading or unloading. If you decide to go used make sure all gates and latches are tight and work properly. Always keep your gates, latches, hinges greased and in top shape. Your gates everything inside is your safety. REPLY REPLY WITH QUOTE
