Ranger Gate introduces corrosion-resistant bulk feeders

• Using a hot-dip galvanizing process to protect the most vulnerable feeder components from corrosion, Ranger Gate feeders are designed to have a much longer service life than traditional painted-steel products.

Responding to customer requests for corrosion-resistant livestock equipment, Ranger Gate has collaborated with AZZ Incorporated, North America’s largest galvanizer, to design and build a line of galvanized bulk feeders.

Using a hot-dip galvanizing process to protect the most vulnerable feeder components from corrosion, Ranger Gate feeders are designed to have a much longer service life than traditional painted-steel products.

Ranger Gate offers two styles of galvanized bulk feeders, available from 1- to 6-ton capacities.

Ranch models are towable with heavy-duty jacks and new axles and wheels, while feedlot models are placed on skids.

All trailer and skid components are hot-dip galvanized at a state-of-the-art AZZ Incorporated galvanizing facility to give them a durable zinc coating, which resists rust from water and other corrosive materials that drip from the trough area.

 “In harsh climates it’s common for painted-steel trailers and skids to rust out after only a couple seasons of use,” said Rick Jahn, owner of Ranger Gate.

“Our galvanized bulk feeders are designed to last a lifetime by eliminating corrosion concerns. They can potentially help ranchers save thousands of dollars in repair and replacement costs.”

Additionally, Ranger Gate’s feeders feature a modular design with hoppers made from 16-gauge, pre-galvanized steel. Troughs are offered with the choice of galvanized-steel or polyethylene construction.

Other unique features include rear clean-out doors and a 7.5-foot-wide sliding top door for easy loading. Ranger Gate also specializes in custom feeder designs to meet any rancher’s specific needs.

In addition to its bulk feeders, Ranger Gate offers a variety of other galvanized products, including gates, panels, tanks and kennels.
