Kit Includes: Medi-Dart Crossbow, 2 complete darts (30cc), 1 practice end, 2 x IM needles (#5 and new #6), Castor oil lubricant, and Air pump Medi-Dart uses a simple bicycle pump to create air pressure which injects the medication and upon completion of the injection pushes the ejector loop ahead, forcing the needle out of the animal. Estimated needle usage: If you are using needles with a crossbow. You can get an average of 30 uses out of the needle. If you are using needles with an extension syringe. You can get an average of 50 uses out of the needle. You can resharpen needles with a file and get more use out of them. Usage estimates are based on correct use of the needles, it excludes misses such as hitting trees. New improvements to the kit are: CB kits now come with 2 needles, one #5 & one #6, both IM. The crossbow kit also includes two plastic wingnuts (MDCBWN & MDEWN). The MDCBWN has 3/8″ wings and the MDEWN has 1/2″ wings. The #6 was made because there was need for more grip. This needle works well for doctoring yearlings or sick calves in the fall. A #6 needle needs to be paired with the half-moon pushrod (MDHPR) and a wingnut. It needs to work together with this pushrod & wingnut in order to properly eject. We would recommend you stocking both the MDAKCBW & MDAKEW as change over kits for existing customers so they can update their darts. Medi Dart has been around for 27 years and we also have customers who are satisfied with how the tool works and so we are continuing to sell the #2,3 & 4 IM needles for them if they prefer. Some people dont like change. Currently only have #5s available in sub-q needles. Difference between the two sizes of new wing nuts: MDCBWN 1/2 long wings we feel is better for cows and bulls that are not that fast. It provides a little extra leverage and keeps the dart up a bit more for great ejection. MDEWN 3/8 long wings we feel is better for younger cattle that are very fast when you shoot them. The shorter wings provides a bit less leverage and let’s the dart stay in the animal better. Another reason for this difference is people use different drugs. Some are smaller doses, so the dart doesn’t have to hang on on for very long. Some people want to give a bigger dose so then the dart has to hang on longer. This is why Medi-Dart gives to get the tool to work best for their own situation.
