Our own-brand Farmhand debudder has been completely redesigned for 2019. We are producing this device to be the most rugged and most reliable of our debudders range. This is the one that we recommend for vets and contractors. The one that will stand continuous hard usage.
The tool is supplied with a QCC fitting for direct attachment to regular 4kg or 9kg LPG bottles. Gas control is on the handle, so a regulator is not required on the bottle. The hose is a generous 3.2m long. This tool is fast heating, and will maintain a high temperature even in cool or windy conditions.
The Bakelite handle remains cool, even after long use. Handle is an ergonomic design, with heat shield and pressure flange, and remains cool even after continuous use. A sturdy hang-hook is incorporated.

The Express debudder is made in France, and is supplied in a heavy-duty metal (burn proof) carry case, complete with two cans of gas and spare parts. 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. The back shroud incorporates two legs for standing the debudder upright 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.
