As a special tool for tail trimming of dairy cows as well as crutching and dagging sheep, Heiniger have combined their powerful 12v shearing handpiece with a rechargeable and portable 12v battery pack.
The dry-cell battery is carried in either a back pouch or a belt pouch (this is the belt pouch version).
The handpiece motor power is 160W. The battery will run the handpiece for about 400 tails. It then requires overnight to recharge.
So with two batteries supplied, continuous clipping is possible in large herds.
This special tail trimmer uses a shattle comb. This comb has more teeth than a regular shearing comb, making it more suitable for cutting hair.
Cut depth is approx 2mm, so the unit is also very useful for TB testing and similar tasks.
The Ultimate 3 handpiece weighs 1.55kg. The battery weight is 3kg.
*The Ultimate 3 kit includes: handpiece, 2 x 12v batteries, 2 x battery chargers, shattle comb, Xtreme cutter, and a battery holster, all packaged in a heavy duty plastic case
NB: Batteries must only be trickle charged.
