FELCO 51

Special Application - Hoof clippers

Successfully clipping the hooves of sheep and goats requires confidence, control and precision on your part. To achieve this you’re looking for comfort, efficiency, durability, easily replaceable parts, and shears that routinely and consistently deliver on all of these requirements. We don’t mean to bleat, but these FELCO 51 hoof clippers have the only pedigree you’ll need - with a design based on the admired FELCO 8 shears – as well as the advantage of a XYLAN® coating on the blades that aids the ongoing fight against infection.

Description

Sheep and goats… Your job is to cut their hooves; theirs is to resist and make your job as difficult as possible. With the FELCO 51 hoof clippers at least you can rely totally upon the very best tool for your side of the bargain. Ergonomic might not be a term that any of your livestock will understand, but you will enjoy the exceptional comfort of these shears that are based on the enduring FELCO 8 model. An angled cutting head, along with the handle shape - which specifically optimises the force you are able to apply - delivers a precise clean cut that will quickly prove successful with even the most stubborn animal; while the XYLAN® coating on the blades keeps the tool cleaner and cuts the risk of infection. The FELCO 51 hoof clippers are designed to deal with the most challenging cutting tasks – and equally difficult sheep and goats.

N°1  Cleaning
It is advisable to clean your tool after each use. If your tool is particularly dirty or subject to rusting after exposure to moisture, do not delay cleaning.
FELCO 51  - Cleaning

The videos do not necessarily show the chosen tool. But the handling is the same.

N°2  Oiling
After cleaning, it is advisable to oil the tool so as to protect it from corrosion. The oil will also unjam the tool.

The videos do not necessarily show the chosen tool. But the handling is the same.

N°3  Sharpening
It is advisable to sharpen your tool at least once a day, but if you feel that your tool is not cutting as well as usual, sharpen it right away!

The videos do not necessarily show the chosen tool. But the handling is the same.

N°1  Changing the plastic coatings for handles
If the coatings are badly damaged, you can replace them. Soak the coatings for 2 minutes in boiling water - recommended glue: Loctite 415.

N°2  Changing the shock absorber
When the tool closes too abruptly during pruning, and the cushion is in good condition, the shock absorber should be changed.

N°3  Changing the thumb catch
When the thumb catch is damaged and loosens when used, even when the screw is readjusted, change it.
