Hoof Cutting Discs
The 'P6' is one of Europe's most widely-used hoof cutting discs. Made in Germany. High enough quality for the professional, but at an affordable price for the non-professional. Cutting discs with knives, rather than embedded chips, cut cleaner, faster and cooler, and have longer life. Can be used safely on both the sole, and in the interdigital space. Geometric layout of cutters gives maximum flexibility of use, cutting wherever it is touching the hoof. Should cut up to 1,500 hooves. (Knives are not replaceable.) Disc diameter 125mm with 22mm centre hole.
Philipsen is the leading brand in hoof discs. This disc incorporates tungsten-carbide chips fixed onto a rigid plate. The tungsten gives a quite aggressive cut, which can be necessary with very hard hoof horn, without building up heat. A rubber buffer on the back reduces vibration when cutting. Holes in the disc also serve to cool it. This quality disc is long lasting. Diameter is 112mm with 22mm centre hole.
This is the latest from USA. A totally rebuilt tool especially developed for hoof trimming. No compromises. The new Electric Hoof Knife gives the user full control. It is light and easy to hold and twist and turn to cut all over and around the Hoof and even between the claws. The 2' (50mm) cutter disc removes horn quickly, cleanly and smoothly, and is a lot easier to manage than a regular 4' cutting tool. This tool might look aggresive, but when running at 10,000 rpm the chain disc is very controllable and leaves a smooth finish. The aluminium disc guard is effective in ensuring the disc cuts only where you want it to. The 'Cow' set is supplied with chain-cutter disc, sharpening file, hexagon disc-removal key, safety glasses and instructional DVD, all packed in a light weight but durable canvas carry case. The 'Horse' model has an extra rasp disc especially suitable for equine hoof use. The Electric Hoof Knife has good grip texture, runs cool, and weighs only 600gm. Replacement cutting chain and discs available.
'Chainsaw-type' hoof cutting disc from the 'Merlin' family specially developed for hoof trimming use. This disc will fit 4.5' angle grinders with 7/8' (22mm) centre hole. Can be sharpened with regular chainsaw file. This disc will cut through the hardest horn with ease, yet is not too aggressive to handle. Much less fatiguing than regular hoof cutting discs. Tungsten-carbide teeth are long-lasting between sharpenings.
Ideal for the professional hoof trimmer. Made in Germany. Disc of lightweight alloy is easier to manage and has less vibration. Perforation holes in disc give greatest cooling, and enable viewing right through the disc when it is operating at speed. (See photo above.) This prevents over-cutting and damaging hoof tissue. The 6 knives run smoothly, coolly and efficiently removing horn tissue. Knives are reversible for double the life. This disc allows fast and accurate horn removal, with lowest risk of injury to man or animal. The disc should trim more than 3,000 hooves on one set of knives. Diameter 120mm with 22mm centre hole. **Replacement set contains 3 knives and screws. (Not 6.)
