I just got a couple of dozen very wild unhandled sheep from a fellow going out of the business. A lot of them showing bottlejaw. Ran them through a makeshift corral into a chute made of old pallets. Without this drencher I think this might have never been possible. It is handy to be able to change the dose on the fly. Although you do waste a small amount when dialing down, the convenience is worth it.

They work well, but they can break so buy two

I have been using the same brand drench gun over the past 7 or so years and wormed hundreds of sheep. It really is worth the cost as it saves time and makes it a lot easier to treat a large flock. The only problem is that I neglected to order the drench nozzle. I think that the product summary needs to clearly say that you need to order the drench nozzle separately if you plan to use the product to worm animals. Since I don't want to pay shipping, I need to wait until I have other items to order and add the nozzle to the order (bummer).

Purchasing my fourth drench gun. We run 120 doe goat herd, and it is a breeze worming them all the same afternoon with two people and a good working chute system. Because they are cheap compared to the competition, I always keep an extra on hand for parts or in case one breaks. They are easy to clean and maintain. Only issue I have ever had is an old doe grabbing onto the drench gun nozzle when I was pulling it out and it cracked the plastic tip where it connects. This completely breaks the gun because the check valves will not work properly when air can seep in the crack. This was after about 4 years of use and a lot of doses given. Well worth the money, and comparatively a well made affordable drench gun. I just took my last spare and used it to apply delouse topical treatment, which we had been using a old single dose hand drencher for. It really sped up productivity running two of them. I would hands down buy it again.

The unit feels semi-disposable. It performed well the first time I used it, but there were a couple of glitches. The most important was that about halfway through drenching my lambs with Valbazen I noticed that the dosage had increased to 6 ML, enough for a 200-pound animal. Fortunately, Valbazen has a very high degree of safety, but who knows how many lambs received this overdose before I noticed it? The second was that the drench nozzle has a tendency to shift, requiring me to stop and adjust it quite a few times -- maybe every 10 lambs or so.
I miss the old Syrvet drenchers, which were more rugged and durable than this, but my recent experience with two of them (purchased elsewhere) is that while they felt rugged they were in fact junk, which could fall apart after drenching as few as 100 lambs. I believe this unit will outperform the Syrvet, despite its shortcomings.
