"Great for Goats"
I've used a Rhinehart X-30 for DECADES for disbudding all breeds of goats. And yes, it DOES work on Dwarfs (just takes care and experience on the part of the user).
The outer diameter is too small for disbudding Nigerian Dwarf kids. It is narrower that the add on miniature kid attachment for the X-50. I had to touch up every kid disbudded with the X-30, even the doelings.
"Great product "
I also have 1/4 in. Great for doing pygmy's.
this works great heats up fast and easy to handle. Very satisfied
I have had this model for 13 years and have done TONS of horns with it and it still works excellent, however the tip is starting to erode and be super thin. Just from lots of use! Im here because its time to get a new one. And guess what? im getting another X30! Any problems with this is user error.
Works great fast shipping
The iron works very well did the horns on all my kids this year I just have the poor baby problem when they scream at least with this dehorner I only have to do it once and its done slidding it side was to remove the horn cap was a great idea then I didnt have to reposition the iron sideways
heat is too low to burn the skin let alone the horn!
I love this disbudder for my Nigerian Dwarfs and standard sized kids. It has lasted many years and is still going strong. Have only had 1 scur, and that was on the first goat disbudded so can be chalked up to user error
"Tiffany from the Cayman Islands"
We own about 40 goats and use this regularly for 8-10 day old kids. Have done numerous goats and only had one horn grow back (I blame on user error-it was one of our first). Works very well and gets VERY hot.
The first time we used this, we ended up with hundreds of dollars in vet bills to correct horrible scurs. Chalked it up to user error, but hired a disbudder ever after. Well, our professional disbudder's iron gave out, and we offered this up. Once again, we had bad scurs on very young "mini" breed goats (between a dwarf and a standard breed). So it wasn't all us. The shape of the pygmy tip is too funnel-shape and thin around the permimeter, making it really hard to work with. It digs in too easily. It seems kind of "slickery" compared to the wider base of the x50. We bought the x30 because a retailer claimed it was the BEST for mini breed goats and young kids. We did a ton of research and bought the most highly-recommended iron. I think the x50 is a better choice, and, if the tip size doesn't work for you, the x50 has interchangeable tips. The x30 tips are not changeable. Frankly, I'm surprised at how highly this is rated. I would NOT recommend it at all.
"Outstanding Customer Service"
"I purchased an X-30 dehorner with a 1/2"" tip(item R5-D1). We tried using it on our Nigerian Dwarf goats and realized it was too big. Not only did Jeffers exchange the unit with a 3/8""(item R5-D5), they paid for the shipment of the new one and the return shipping of the original! Wow! this type of customer service doesn't exist anymore. THANK YOU JEFFERS, White Chapel Farm"
I've tried many types of electric disbudders - this one is my favorite. Not only does it get real hot and work fast, but the company is great to work with if you ever need any problems addressed. Five stars!
"makes a hard job easy"
we use this for our Boer kids. holds enough heat to give a good copper ring in about 12-15 seconds. can be difficult to do additional burns to the 'cap' without burning surrounding area, but overall a great product
This dehorner works great. I disbud kids as early as a day old and this iron stays hot even in very cold temps. A stand would be nice but a nail on the wall works well for keeping the iron high enough so nothing touches it.
