The MB-450 CLOSED JAW 2 COILED
The newest member of the Minnesota Brand Trap family. The MB-450-FH is a #1 1/2 size trap but built to hold the meanest, nastiest coyote. Outside jaw spread is 5" and inside jaw spread 4 3/8". The 450 has 5/16 thick, smooth closed cast jaws. Features include a Paws-I-Trip Pan with night latched dog heavy levers, strong music wire springs, #2 American made chain, crunch proof swivels, and a 2 piece gusseted frame for strength and reliability.
The MB-550-RC 2 COILED
Double Coil Spring Cast Offset Jaws Trap is designed for use in taking coyote, bobcat, fox and raccoon. This trap has an outside jaw spread of 5 1/2" and an inside jaw spread of 4 3/4". The cast jaw face is 3/8" thick and the offset is 3/16". This trap has a Paws-I-Trip pan system and a night latched dog. Pan tension out of the box (un-waxed) runs an average of 2.1 pounds.
This trap is fast and excellent results were obtained using the double coil model during an extensive 3 year testing period on coyote, bobcat, red fox, grey fox and raccoon. This trap is an excellent live market trap as well as the trap to use on a mixed species line. It is small enough for fox and tough enough for the nastiest coyote.
THE MB-550-RC 4 COILED
The 550-RC has an outside jaw spread of 5 1/2” and an inside jaw spread of 4 3/4”. The cast jaw face is 3/8” thick and the offset is 3/16”. We’ve installed a Paws-I-Trip pan system and stainless steel night latch dog. Pan tension out of the box on the two coiled version runs an average of 2.5 pounds which we have found to be a very good number for a multi species trap. Pan tension on the four coiled model runs an average of 4.1 pounds. Waxing will decrease pan tension by about .3 pounds. This trap is fast and excellent results are obtained using it two coiled. We do not recommend using the 4-coiled version if grey fox is your target animal. The 550 is an excellent live market trap, as well as the trap to use on a mixed specie line. Small enough for fox and tough enough for the nastiest coyote. If you are not planning on 4-coiling your MB-550’s we recommend cutting the excess spring pins off leaving 1/2” protruding from the frame.
The 550-RC has an outside jaw spread of 5 1/2” and an inside jaw spread of 4 3/4”
THE MB-650-OL FOUR COILED TRAP
THE MB 650-CAST FOUR COILED
Just dye and wax these traps and they're ready to go! Virtually anything that could be done to make this trap coyote proof is wrapped up here in one neat package. The MB-650 is heavy-duty from top to bottom and comes with 1/4" offset jaws and a 6 1/8" inside jaw spread. This custom-made trap is 4-coiled, baseplated, center swiveled and has an extra heavy-duty oversize pan which provides for a huge kill area. The pan tension is adjustable with a #10 pan bolt. Both heavy jaws are held down by a special trigger system which will keep any animal from flipping up a loose jaw. The dog has a "step-down" notch milled into it that gives you an audible click when you are lowering the pan. We've of course installed our MB Crunch Proof Swivels and heavy duty American made chain. Available in six jaw configurations to fit your needs.
