TOPIC: Best Nippers in the $100 price range? I need some new tools!

Best Nippers in the $100 price range? I need some new tools! 28 Jul 2012 23:45 #1

Hi all,

I was wondering what are the best nippers in the $100 price range? Or should I spring for the $200+ GE's?

A little background. I am not a professional farrier but I took a farrier science course many years back (and slept at a Holiday Inn Express- haha!) and have been doing my best to learn and grow in the years since. I currently maintain my own horses (either shod or barefoot depending on their needs and my back) and have 3 horses at this time. I just want some good nippers that will serve me well.

The ones I am currently using I believe are Anvil brand and I bought them right out of farrier science (approx. 18 years ago) and have been using them ever since. They are now pretty chipped and dull.

I read on here that if you have nippers $100 or less you might as well buy a new set rather than have them rebuilt?

Right now I am thinking I should buy another set. So I am looking for another good set in the $100 price range. Unless you think I really should spring for the GE's? If I went with a cheaper nipper, which brands are the best?

On a side note, I went into the hardware store today and saw a Heller Red Tang rasp. I never knew a rasp could be so sharp! You guessed it, I haven't had a new rasp in ages either. Would the Heller Red Tang rasp be a good choice?

And wow, would I love to have a good hoof stand with a cradle. Do you guys have any recommendations on those? Something that the old horses wouldn't have to lift their legs too high with? One of my horses is 18 years old and pulls his foot away if I lift it too high. It makes trimming very difficult.

And wow, would I love to have a good hoof stand with a cradle. Do you guys have any recommendations on those? Something that the old horses wouldn't have to lift their legs too high with? One of my horses is 18 years old and pulls his foot away if I lift it too high. It makes trimming very difficult.

Mustad 15" nippers: 99.95. Good quality. I have 3 pair of GE's that I rotate (rebuild), but used Mustad for a couple of years. The GE's are better, but the Mustads work fine. Exceptional for the price.

Heller Red tang or Save edge. The Heller last longer, usually 50 trims or better ( about 40 w/ the Save Edge), but the Save Edge is easier to use for beginners.

I have a Hoof Jack, probably the standard now a days, but I also have a Hoof-it stand that works well. ( I work out of 2 vehicles, have tools for both). It's about $50 cheaper.

I very seldom use the cradle, and only on hinds. YMMV. I replaced the hoof-it pipe with one that fits without the cradle. The hoofit pipe fits inside their cradle. The cradle gets in the way, but it's handy to use the cradle sometimes.

That's what I want the cradle for is the hinds. I have one horse in particular, that if you lift the hinds across your thigh, he pulls them away. If I leave them really low, like balanced on my shoe :unsure: he doesn't pull them away. That or I have to try to rasp and nip one-handed and hold the leg with my other hand. Not very effective. :lol:

So I'll have to compare the hoof stands from that angle. That's a good point about the cradle/nubby piece being either together or separate. I hadn't thought about that. I guess one of the reasons I'm not worried about the nubby part for holding the leg forward is that I have two stands that work for that. But they are both someone's homemade variety and don't have a cradle attachment. And their not the safest stands in the world either.

As for the nippers, hmm. It will be something I have to think about. It might be better to spring for the GE's but I have actually been very happy with my Anvil nippers up until they got chipped, dull, and the teeth no longer meet.

Are the Diamond FN15 nippers junk? Or about equal to Mustad/Anvil? I can buy those locally.

Thanks guys!

I work on a few geriatric horses and the "Hoof Jack" makes it real easy. They make a small horse size for the smaller horse but its great for some of these old guys. GE is the way to go. You will get the extra outlay back in longevity. Heller Legend on the rasp. Also with the older horse dont pull the leg out to the side try and stay in line with the horses body.

rebuilding comfortable cutters is a good way to go IMO they come back as good as any make and you are used to the feel of them , and you save money
common sense is not needed when you have rules

I have a pair of Nordic forge nippers I'm partial to. My GE's are better all around. Edge brand aren't bad, but the reins are too soft. Can't even touch up the edge on a pair of GE's with a file.

I really believe that for your sisuation and the price range you want, that the Nordic nipper would be best. Their quality control is much better that Pakistan junk, and you have an American to talk too if you have a problem.
Just my humble opinion.

I would consider these:
www.germedusa.com/p-666-hoof-nipper-15.aspx
This company makes excellent instruments of German stainless steel construction. A little more than $100 but they are a good buy.

Tookie,

Do you have any hands on experience with those nippers?

I will be replacing mine soon and these I will get. I have an adjustable hoof tester from this company and it is better than the other two like it on the market in construction and ease of use and is $40.00 less. The others aren't stainless steel so the movable joint works far better.
