Excellent. I heard good review, so I bought one. I like it. I like L&H irons. Have had one for forty years and still use it. Great products and service :-)
Best investment ever!

I've been neglecting to cut net wrap off our bale processor for months before buying this iron makes a 2 hr job to a 10min job enjoyable and no more busted knuckles!
Excellent! Should have bought it years ago!

The hot knife is excellent for taking the net wrap off of bale processors and is far superior to any other hot iron that I have used. I should have bought this years ago!
Don’t use a bale processor without one!!!

This cuts through plastic twine like a “hot knife” through butter, pardon the punn, make take the twine off the bale processor drum a breaze, a L & H hot knife should come with every bale processor sold!!!
The number of characters in a brand is determined by how you would describe the brand. For example: Bar 7B would be 3 characters, if the characters blend into each other such as the 7 and the B using the same vertical line, that is still considered a 3 character branding iron.
The size of a brand can be determined in one of 2 ways.
For example: Brand design of Bar over 7B
Per Character - you would describe the brand as 4" character size, so the "7 B" would be 4" adding the "Bar" that would then make the brand a size of 5" in overall height.
Overall Height - you would describe the brand as 4" overall height, that would then make the characters "7B" 3" tall adding the "bar" to make a total brand height of 4".
So you can see that by this example, if you simply say that you want a 4" brand, you could possibly get either a 4" total height brand or a 5" total height brand.
It is very important to communicate this in the fashion that you would like to have your brand made. If you do not specify either "per character" or "overall", we will default to "per character" and this might not fit your needs. As the type of animal, the age of the animal, the brand location and the brand design have an effect on what size of brand you should choose, please be careful when choosing a size, there is no "normal", "average" or "standard" brand size, all the factors above should be considered. If you would like help to determine the size that will best fit your needs, please contact us with your brand information at firstname.lastname@example.org.
