The remote on the left is my old 3 function that I used on my old Wopa 51 and the remote on the right is the new 5 function on my new Wopa 51.
Now let me explain! Old remote has "on / off" red and green then button underneath red is yoke close button like the new remote on the right the new remote is also yoke close, when trimming the next move with the remote is to drop the bar behind the cows rump and after 8 years this is second nature😳😳 ON THE NEW REMOTE the same button is open yoke. So yesterday I missed the 1st cow and 3 more drawing a hoof trimming session with a large number of cow missing the opportunity to make a quick get away before I rectified the open yoke.
I would like to apologise to farms I will visit in the next few weeks for a number of cows that are presented for me but missed😬😬😬😬
I have three grinders " hand held electric rasp for shaving small chips of hoof from a cows claw by a professional claw technician " set on the crush when working. They are 900 watt Metabo grinders with 6 bit 3mm trim tec discs. All blades all face away from the operated. All grinders are bandaged up so if heavily soiled when working a new bandage can be applied. We have a spare grinder for back feet as that grinder has twice the work load and will need replacement tips sooner than the front two grinders, Aluminium guards are added to protect hands from hoof discharge and all grinders have start buttons on the top of the grinders so for more controlled switching.
The grinder is placed that what ever the high of the crush the grinder can be easily to hand.
The front grinders are located best for when the crush is a full height for the trimmer to collect and replace yet still out of the working zone
