Universal Branding Irons

The L & H Semi-Universal Brander or Universal Brander have a half circle and a 2 1/2″ bar. Almost any number or letter can be made with a series of applications. These units are extensively used for custom branding and numbering by stockment with small herds. Operates on 110 volts, AC or DC. The Universal brander has an added 4″ bar to speed up the branding operation.
Using only a heavy duty three wire grounded extension cord connected to a three wire grounded electricity source will decrease your chances of an electrical shock and increase the quality of the finished brand. The iron will not work properly if the extension cord is improperly sized too small.
