Shearing lifting jack

Image Number 4 for United States Patent #6477986.

Shearing lifting jack for shearing sheep comprises a cradle (31) for holding a sheep on its back or stomach and which is shaped so as to allow the sheep to be rolled from its back to its stomach or vice versa during the shearing operation. Lifting means for example in the form of a rolling chain (20) is provided to move the cradle from a first loading/unloading position adjacent the floor of a shearing shed or other suitable location for shearing sheep and a second raised position for shearing the sheep approximating the height of a work bench. This allows the sheep to be lifted whilst it is shorn in order that the sheerer avoids bending over the sheep. The lifting means is operable between the first loading/unloading position and second shearing position by a single unassisted shearer.
