How to Use
- If you prefer/need the larger cattle tip, make sure the unit is unplugged and has cooled down Warning—temperature can exceed 1000˚ F. To remove the tip, hold it with a tool or your hand and unscrew the bolt and washer located on the underside.
- The lever on the dehorner should remain at "D" for all dehorning. The "S" is for those that have the tip for soldering.
- Allow 10 - 12 minutes for the dehorner to heat up before using. Apply to the horn base for approximately 10 seconds. For more detailed instructions, reference Rhinehart's directions.
- Tip is very very hot. DO NOT TOUCH.
- Works best on kid goats that are about 3 days old. Use when the horn nub is barely there.
- Make sure the animal is held so it cannot move its head during burning.
Make sure the lever is set on "D" for dehorning. Not "S" for soldering.

Did not come with the second tip as advertised. Have not used the unit yet.

Worked much better than I had anticipated. Very pleased with the weight and how quick it removed the horns. Would very much recommend the product. It was used on boer and Nubian babies who were 7 weeks of age and one who was 4 months of age (dwarf boer).

It is very user friendly. I like that the goat tip is already on when you receive it so if you open it in the barn you don’t risk loosing the tip. Heats up quickly. I was impressed by how quickly it got here, I didn’t realize our old one didn’t work anymore until it was time to burn horns.
