The Portasol debudder has now had an upgrade to a MK3 model. This is a completely new tool, made much stronger and more durable, and with improved heat retaining properties. Ignition is improved with a new Piezo starter, and there is also the very valuable option of manual lighting when required. The jet can be removed and serviced by the user. This new tool is a top quality debudder that should last many years of use. NB: The debudder is charged with butane lighter fuel when it is dispatched. Due to freight regulations we can not include a refill-can with the debudder.
This dudder is made in New Zealand and has been well proven over many years of use. It is a very robust tool, suitable for use in demanding conditions.

Supplied standard with 18mm tip, with optional 16mm and 20mmn tips available. The heavy tip on this dubudder means it will hold its heat well whilst in contact with the horn.

The Express debudder is made in France, and is supplied in a heavy-duty carry case, complete with two cans of gas and spare parts. This case is lined with fire-proof material in the area where the debudder head lies, so the tool can be put away safely, even when hot. One of the nicest features of this tool is the pistol-grip style. This makes it very comfortable to hold and use. The flame is ignited by the pistol trigger. Heat is adjusted by a knob at the back. Full 600°C operating temperature is reached in 3 minutes. A full gas canister should give 2 hours of full operation. Gas canisters are screwed into the base shroud and are totally secure. This shroud also incorporates standing 'legs' for placing the tool on safely when hot. The tool is lightweight at only 650gm (with full gas tin). A unique and patented feature of this tool is a heat shield incorporated just behind the burning head. This deflects heat away from the tool body, the calf's ear and your hand. The reversible cautery tip features a deep cavity and a thin wall, allowing for good penetration and burn depth, even on slightly larger horns. Supplied with spare jet and replacement piezo lighter assembly. The Express debudder is also ideal for use on goats using optional 15mm tip.
