Ritchie Combi Clamp

Work Easier & Safer with the IMPROVED Combi Clamp

Take the backache out of sheep handling with the Ritchie Combi Clamp.

This revolutionary sheep handling system makes sheep handling easier, substantially reducing body stress for operators and animals.

The shepherd no longer has to struggle to restrain, hold or turn a sheep over for examination as the Combi Clamp operates “hands-free” allowing the shepherd time to deal with drenching, dagging, vaccinating or tagging all in one operation.

The innovative Combi Clamp system:

  • Suitable for left or right-handed operators
  • All steelwork hot-dip galvanized finish

Since 2009 the Combi Clamp has included galvanised sheet work on the ramp and a 3-way shedding gate with a sealed timber board on the clamp unit.

Capsuling and Vaccinating

Very efficient because the hands free operation of the RITCHIE Combi Clamp allows reloading of applicators while you release the current and capture the next sheep concurrently.

Vaccinating is a quick and easy operation as sheep can be slowed down and held briefly as a needle is inserted.

Usually vaccinating is done in conjunction with drenching or capsuling, if so then the vaccinating can easily be done in the approach race simply by removing the anti jump rails. Once again the RITCHIE Combi Clamp’s soft side with its wrap around effect is a great aid in preventing rearing or movement.

Foot Treatment

By activating the locking bar, the sheep can be held in place in a natural standing position while you trim the feet. No need to tip sheep over.

Drenching

Fast operation. The RITCHIE Combi Clamp holds each sheep in the same position and allows ease of handling and control as animal movement is minimised once clamped. Because the operator is not in a race or pen situation with the sheep to administer the drench, the clamp greatly reduces physical stress on both the operator and animals.

Tagging / Ear Marking

The RITCHIE Combi Clamp allows easy access to the ears, whilst holding the sheep steady. This enables easy tag application, reading or age marking.

Mouthing

Mouthing

Physically demanding using conventional methods, the RITCHIE Combi Clamp enables you to restrain the sheep while standing at the head end. The operator can make the decision as to which sheep need to be caught, allowing the younger sheep to flow straight through.

Dagging / Crutching

Dagging / Crutching

With hands free operation and the clamps ‘Quick Catch and Release System’, the hand piece can be left running and ready between sheep. ‘Dirties’ are easily identified and caught, while leaving the clean sheep to pass through, eliminating the need to draft off the dirty sheep first before dagging etc.

Drafting

Drafting

The RITCHIE Combi Clamp means you can work on animals and draft all in one easy process, without having to run animals through the yards again.

Weighing

Weighing

The advantage of weighing with the RITCHIE Combi Clamp is that the machine is tared out, including the operator’s body weight, this enables the operator to carry out other procedures or condition score the animal while weighing.
