Safety Features

The safety of you and the animals that are being trimmed is our greatest concern. The Hoof Boss is completely safe to operate when you follow our clear operating instructions.

If you have any questions about how to safely operate the Hoof Boss, we encourage you to visit our FAQs page, read through our online instruction manuals, or give us a call.

Strong and Safe Construction

We have never had a disc or chain break during trimming and we have never had a single disc sent back to us because of a manufacturing defect. Our discs are designed to never generate high heat, therefore they maintain low temperatures during trimming and this helps in protecting the animal’s hoof.

Comprehensive Instructions

Our clear and specific safety instructions are included in every tool set, and if you follow them, no harm will come to you or the animal you are working with. We understand your concerns and encourage you to read all of our included safety instructions and instruction manuals, as well as watch our instructional videos before operating the Hoof Boss.

Quiet in Use

At less than 100 decibels, our tool is very quiet and most animals will not be bothered by it. However, we recommend you introduce the tool to the animal first. If you sense the animal you are working on is distressed in any way, stop trimming immediately and calm the animal before continuing.

Important Safety Tips

  • Always use caution when using a power tool – the biggest danger is complacency and lack of attention while working.
  • Always wear the proper safety equipment while trimming with the Hoof Boss. Eye protection, a dust mask, and thick leather gloves. We also recommend close-toed shoes and long-legged trousers or chaps.
  • Always make sure the hoof you are working on is secured safely. If you are working with a horse, always make sure to bind up their tail.
  • Keep yourself between the power source and the animal at all times. This will minimize your cord management and make trimming safer.

Remember that hoof trimming requires practice and knowledge about hoof anatomy. We encourage you to read up on trimming before using our tool so that you are fully aware of the process of trimming hooves. While our included instructions are comprehensive, they are not a substitute for proper training and experience.
