Crushes the spermatic cords but does not cut the skin or the arteries to scrotum. Strong, precise action. Testicles dry up and scrotum shrinks within 21 days.
Easy plier action requires only one hand. Small jaws reduce scrotum injury.
- 9.5" long
- 1" jaw
How to Use
- Ensure that both testicles are pulled down.
- Only clamp one testicle cord in the scrotum at a time.
- When doing second side, slide the side crusher down a little. You do not want the opposing marks to meet.
- Never clamp the entire scrotum with single squeeze & never allow the opposing marks (one from each side) to meet.
- Do not leave pliers closed. This will relax the crush on the pliers.
- Make sure that you crush the cord above the testicle. Crushing the testicle will cause swelling.

Good quality. Worked well on mini nubian bucklings. A bit small for 90 day old katahdin ram lamb, but still clamped down well.

I just used this to castrate 4-week old lambs, and I love it. The lambs did not seem to feel much of anything past the first pinch, and were up and running around immediately, with seemingly no after effects. I have used the bands in the past, and stopped because there was too much down time, and it took weeks for the testicles to fall off. This was easy to use (after watching a video), and took 20 seconds per lamb. I will never use anything else!

I have two Nigerian Dwarf bucklings that both needed to be wethered. This was my first time performing this procedure. It went very smooth. I looked at other emasculatomes, but decided on the Side Crusher because it seemed to be a quality piece and easier to visualize what you are doing. It was a bit on the expensive side for just two goats, but it was worth it to know I was using a quality tool in the most humane way possible on my little guys.

Worth every penny. 100% success rate 2 years running (approx 10 goats per year). I do most boys at 7 days or less as they are going for meat at 6 months and the experts say far less pain if you do them that young. I did two boys at 3 months (to be kept as wethers) and there was a lot more pain & swelling. This design is much easier to use on the small goat scrotums than the traditional burdizzo.

After using the large emasulotome on my angora goats for too many years, I finaly sprung for the more expensive side crusher. Why did I wait!
So much easier on my arthritic thumbs, and much easier on my goats. I just wethered a couple of 4+ month old guys. They were sore but recovered much more quickly. I had no problem getting a good "clamp" on these older kids and it gives them a much better chance at avoiding urinary calculi in the future.
