Crutching Frame with Chest Belt
Bending over a sheep being sheared is an adult male, seen under his torso is the U-shaped padded belt that’s affixed to a C-shaped frame with the spring-loaded cables attached at the top.

A Crutching Frame with Chest Belt can help reduce back fatigue while shearing sheep. The device is a steel loop with a padded chest belt across the bottom on which the shearer rests his upper body while bending over to shear sheep. The frame hangs from a beam by spring-loaded cables, which balance the weight of the shearer to take the pressure off his/her back.
