MECHANICAL BULL

 

Lane Ranch's El Toro mechanical bucking bull is an authentic El Toro just like the one that rose to fame in the 1980 blockbuster movie
"Urban Cowboy" starring John Travolta.

Lane Ranch's El Toro is a patent from the original designer Joe Turner, who built the first El Toro bucking bull in 1974 for his rodeo pals
to use training to ride rodeo bulls. After he put it on the market and Gilleys, known as the largest nightclub in the world bought one,
every other club owner wanted one and Turner became overwhelmed building 20 El Toro mechanical bucking bulls a month. He sold his
company, patent and all, to the owners of Gilleys just 11 months before the huge hit "Urban Cowboy" was released.

Gilleys' owners then fielded 50 calls a day and sold the mechanical bulls for $7495 each, a long way from Turner's original $2,995 each.

This El Toro bucking bull is one of the most sought after mechanical bucking bulls because of the accuracy of the motion of real bucking bulls, something the cowboys of the rodeo circuit really wanted, and many still use in training.

It is an original, and it works great! The El Toro mechanical bucking bull comes with or without bull head and saddle and a full pad is
available. Lane Ranch has two mechanical bulls, the El Toro and The Bull, a newer version mechanical bull with a black and white hide and black
head with horns.
