We have used Callicrate Banders since they first came out and were pleased with the results. When we learned Callicrate was designing a new improved bander, we were ready to try one and purchased one of the first ones out. We have banded bulls weighing from 300# to 1200# and are very impressed by the new design. The bands are a big improvement and easy to load. The fact that the crimping lever is eliminated makes the whole process faster. The ratcheting action is smoother and the bands hold very well. We would highly recommend the new Callicrate PRO Bander to anyone.
Used my PRO Bander for the first time today. Was able to band and doctor 10 calves in less than 30 min with two people!! Great product.
After using the old bander for over 15 years, I really appreciate the lighter weight tool and self-crimping bands. When doing several hundred head it makes a huge difference.
