Draft Master DC Electric Auto Drafter

Silent, Compact, Fast, Calm & Gentle

Labour Saving Weigh Crate

If you’re looking for a labour saving weigh crate that’s amazingly simple and technically robust look no further.

The Draft Master Auto Drafter is exceedingly compact compared to a Pneumatic Autodrafter, being the same size as a 3-Way Manual Sheep Drafter. Running off e-bike batteries there’s no requirement for a generator or compressor, adding to portability, so it’s almost silent.

Plus, it’s extremely efficient as power is only drawn when a gate is in motion. It’s possible for lambs to flow at 1 per 6 seconds, that’s 600 / hour on average in the automatic mode.
A 10aH Battery Can Draft Over 3000 Lambs from a Full Charge (above 20°C).

Gates will not jam. When resistance is met the gate retracts & tries again until closed. Gate feedback ensures only the correct weight is caught & recorded.

The Semi Automatic mode allows for handling, grading & re drafting remotely from your mobile phone or tablet if run off The Virtual Indicator App. Drafting by Weight, Daily Live Weight Gain or EID look up.

With BLE Bluetooth, data can be transmitted live to 3rd party management apps offering comprehensive versatility for more in depth recording.

3rd Party Management Apps

The Draft Master works with 3rd party management apps, including Shearwell X6 stock recorder.
