With sows producing more pigs per litter and farms getting larger, moving and handling weaners can become time-consuming and stressful.

In response to requests from pig farmers, Quality Equipment has produced a purpose-made weaner trolley to hold piglets during such routine tasks as injecting as well as for transporting weaners from the farrowing pens to the grower house.



The standard-sized trolley — designed and made at the company’s Woolpit, Suffolk, manufacturing facility — is 700mm wide x 1150mm long (27in x 45in).  It has two fixed and two swivel wheels for manoeuvrability in tight passages. There is a hinged tailgate-type door at one end for easy unloading.



The sturdy galvanised steel frame is fitted with non-corrosive and hygienic plastic surrounds which are easy to clean.

Quality Equipment is the equipment division of Suffolk-based G E Baker Ltd.
