You Can Be Trimming Right Out of the Box.
BEGINNING / INTERMEDIATE Start trimming immediately with the Tungsten Carbide Garnetdisc. Works like a power rasp to remove material thru abrasion but it won’t heat up on the hoof. You can’t get in trouble.
For those who have a larger volume of trimming or who just want a faster, smoother way to trim the mini, then you can move up to the Merlin® 4-tooth chain carbide cutter.
ADVANCED Specifically designed for hoof trimming, the Merlin® 4 Tooth Carbide Chain Set is smooth, extremely easy to control and precise to the point of being able to remove hoof material in slivers as thin as an egg shell.
We suggest you practice using a piece of wood to get the feel of the tool prior to use.This is one of those tools where the more you use it the better and faster you get.
