The MK3 model is the latest Portasol model. This is a very strong and durable tool with improved heat retaining properties. Ignition is with a Piezo starter and there is the option of manual lighting when required. The jet can be removed and serviced by the user. This is a top quality debudder which should give many years of use.
With gas debudders that run on ordinary butane aerosol lighter fuel debudding can be done anywhere anytime. It is strongly recommended that calves be debudded as young as possible. Often this can be at 3 or 4 days old if the horn tip is easily determined. When cauterised young calves do not seem as pain aware and the job can be completed with little drama. The catalyser element tips require replacement after about 200 - 300 calves.
Now supplied with butane for refilling.
