"Replaced An Old One"
Rinehart we used for years finally died. We found this one at a reasonable price. Wife used it with 1/2" Adapter Tip to disbud kids. She said it worked well and quick. Now I know difference between it and X-50 is the X-50 can be used to solder. Doubt we will ever solder with it.
"1/2 " Dehorner Tip"
Works good on disbudding. However it is a real pain to change from one tip to another.
"Great disbudding iron"
This iron works very well. Heats up and burns the buds quickly. Seems to be the best on the market.
We trim hair with a clipper first. Clean, neat, fast, and efficient...this model gets the job done the first time. The heft and large element guarantees no time waiting for reheat. Spectacular " yesterday " quality.....remember the 1950's when stuff was built to last.....this is there. Get a pair of welding gloves and remember to tightly secure the animal. This unit is unmercifully hot.....you, the wife, the kids will all have burns if you are not 100% ready. We love it.
Very simple to use and perfect size. It connects very easy to the x50.
"Great Product "if it worked""
I ordered one since I loved my friends but once I received it and plugged it in nothing happened. So I called Rhinehart and they have the warranty I just had to pay to ship it to them to get repaired. So hopefully I will get many years of use out of it once I get it back. Also when I told my friend about what happened he said he had to do the same thing and been perfect ever since. 2/12/16
I have used it for 10 years on countless goats and dairy calves, it stays hot and effectively dehorns. I have lent it to several neighbors and thankfully its always been returned. Don't buy a smaller / cheaper dehorner, get this one.
This is a great product to use for dehoring goats. I have used another dehorner and it never worked as well as the X50. This item is also ver versitile for different sized animals with the different attachments you can purchase. It is great to have a product that gets super hot, stays hot and you can complete the dehorning process on multiple goats with ease and no frustration on waiting for the X50 to reheat for 30 minutes inbetween each horn. I highly recommend this product!
"Best one I've ever used"
I have used this one for over 20 years on goats and calves, it works wonderfully. I have had the same one for over 20 years and the heating element is just now going, but it still works and gets the job done after 20+ years! I will be buying again!
"Love the X50"
I have used the X50 Eletric Dehorner for years and it works great.
