The Trailer & Machine
We use the Peake Hill Industries Shear EZY unit which clamps the sheep and is able to roll the ram over into a cradle where the back legs are locked in leg restraints. We designed the trailer to suit a lot of areas be it out in the yards or inside a big shed.
The trailer is 7ft wide and 3m tall so will fit through most gates and can be set up by hooking onto any race that is available.
The trailer has also been designed to fold out so there is plenty of room to move around and for the rams to hop off safely.

The Finished product
We pride ourselves on the quality of the shearing and quantity.
Because the ram is restrained and our own designed pattern of shearing allows us to shear the rams with big flat areas making the quality of the job second to none. This picture just gives a snapshot of the job we can do but is indicative of our job everyday.
What we need from you
Things we need to be able to set up and shear your rams.
Area for the trailer to be able to access
A race be it in the yards or in the shed
A few portable panels to hook onto our lead up ramp
Preferably the rams in the yards the day before
We will need someone to help push up especially if the set up isn't so good
What happens to the wool
We carry two portable wool pack holders and set both up near the head holder so he can put the wool in each pack.
Once we have shorn the ram we roll the wool up and throw it straight in the pack.
The wool around the crutch generally falls down onto a tray under the sheeps bum so most of it is separated, but if they are very dirty we can skirt the crutch.
Belly's are kept separated and placed in another pack
