"Totally LOVE it!"
I have been using my EZ Milker for 3 lambing seasons and Love It.. I can't believe how Ez it is to use and all of the colostrum I have been able to save. I would definitely recommend this product.
"Works good for me!"
I was unable to hand milk my Nigerian Dwarf goats due to arthritis in my hands, so I thought I would try this product. I have not had any problem with it's function or durability at all. The one thing I have found is that you have to hold it level or it will lose suction - but with a little trial and error it's not hard to figure out. I would definitely recommend this product.
"Good but slow"
I bought this because my daughter, who is my occasional backup, had never hand-milked before. I was concerned that if I couldn't milk some morning, she wouldn't be able to do it either. After using the pump a couple of times, however, I liked it so much that I've used it exclusively myself. I'm not sure why others seem to have had problems with it. Mine was used by its former owner for at least a year, and has been used by me and my daughter for over six months, and is still in perfect condition. My only concern about it is the constant suction, which I think is hard on the teats. I try to moderate that as much as possible by letting the milk stream come to a stop before squeezing the handle again. I also milk into a pint bottle rather than directly into the quart bottles, so the doe gets a break from the suction each time I empty the pint container. It is slower than hand milking, but I like that the milk goes into a closed container and doesn't get dust, flies or hooves in it as can happen with an open pail.
All junk plastic, poorly made, propably to $10 to make yet selling for $190. Cheap, only works at the beginning but 1/2 through is worthless, stops & always have to finish hand miliking! DONT WASTE YOUR MONEY!!!!!!
"Not worth the $, not good for the animals"
Managed to make this last about a month. Aside from realising how painful the constant suction is for my does, everything wears out quickly and you loose suction, the handle breaks very easily, the bottles that it comes with are about as sturdy as a gatorade bottle and wear out just as fast. Not worth the $, save your $200, get to around $500 and buy a decent milk set up!
I agree, I bought this because I was injured and needed the help milking. No help at all! Lost suction, handle broke the second time around! and the bottle are toxic! So I threw away $200 that I could have used for medical bills! Don't buy this product.
"Not worth the $$$"
I bought this milker to milk my goats, and I was EXTREMELY disappointed with it. The plastic squeeze handle that you pump with broke 2 times in less than a year, and I was only using it on 2 goats at the most! Also, the pump itself lost suction after only a couple of months, even though I cleaned the pump religiously and took very good care of it. I replaced the gasket (at extra cost) and it still didn't restore the suction fully. Also, the bottles that you milk into get worn out after only a few months, and it becomes difficult-to-impossible to tighten them sufficiently to get a good seal. Also, they are apparently made of polycarbonate, which will leach bisphenol-A into your milk. For a piece of equipment that costs almost $200, this milker IS NOT WORTH IT! Save your money, because this milker is not going to last.
