Composite plank options are available on some load chute models, providing an option for flooring material that can stand up to harsh outdoor and operating conditions even better than treated wood planks. og Slat ground lift I-beam units provide strong support for stationary loading chutes and are outfitted with a choice of manual hand winch or electric winch adjustment kits. Electric winch kits allow producers to quickly and easily adjust loading chute height with a simple paddle style switch. The Hog Slat Speed Crank attaches to any standard drill chuck and makes quick work out of adjusting manual winches on loading chutes.
