Tailwell Demonstration

The Tailwell Power Tail Trimmer is easily fitted to a cordless drill in a few simple steps. Trimming of a single tail can be completed in ten seconds.

Fitting the Tailwell to a cordless drill

  1. Place the Tailwell drive shaft into the open chuck and pull the flexible sleeve backwards, firmly onto the drill
  2. Tighten the drill chuck, making sure that the chuck claws are aligned with the flats of the Tailwell driveshaft
  3. Pull the flexible sleeve back on the drill once more to ensure that it is tight
  4. Pull the stretchy cord over the back of the drill. This is for safety against the Tailwell dropping off the drill accidentally
  5. Oil the cutters with the oil supplied in the kit
  6. The Tailwell is now ready to trim
