The single-pipe beam can be turned up to 360 degrees around the post. The lifting gate is available in two lengths, for 2.4–3.5m and 3.5–5.2m. The lifting gate makes it is easy to direct cows into different groups. It is easy to adjust to differing widths of alleys or crossovers. Since it can turn right round the post, it is simple to position the gate at the required angle to guide the cows where needed.
