Default milking machines from Perry's Milkers

Has anyone used the DP50 or DP504 or DP120 from Perry's Milkers? I'm really thinking about getting a milking machine from Perry's and wanted to know other people's opinions. So far everything I have found on the internet has been positive.

I'm leaning towards the DP120 but still want to make sure I'm making the right choice.

I mainly have Nigerian Dwarf goats but I do have one Alpine Mix doe and a Boer doe.

I am currently milking 2 Nigerian Dwarfs and my Alpine. It is just taking too long to hand milk and I'm worried about getting arthritis or Carpal Tunnel from that constant repetitive movement of my hands/fingers.

This is the only link they have which doesn't tell you a whole lot. I had emailed them and got their brochure.

I have their brochure but I don't know where it is. I don't have one of their milkers but when I was shopping for one I talked to that guy and he really knew what he was talking about. Is the DP120 one of the bigger ones?

Yes, that is the larger size that he sells. He says that is the best value and it appears from what I'm reading that it is easier to use. But I just want to be sure when I'm spending that kind of money.

I did do a search on the internet and came up with some old forum threads where people did own them and said they were very happy with them. But these threads were at least a couple years old.

I think we have the 4th one on that link. We love having a milker. It works quickly and is pretty easy to use. We are replacing the inflations and tubes and starting milking again this year.

I purchased a milker from Perry's milkers about a year ago. I love it. My neighbor had one for 12 years and he has had no trouble with it. Mike Perry is a nice guy and very knowledgeable. I found him through his website. http://www.perrysmilkers.com/

Although I love the idea of hand-milking, my hands are telling they aren't so thrilled, so I can see a milking machine in my near future, too. I think Perry's is going to get a call from me after Christmas :P

Thanks everyone

Dixie

Have heard great thinks about Perrys Milkers, especially the customer service behind them.

I am also considering buying a milker from him. Just got to save up enough still to get one. Next month I believe we will get the DP504.I have 5 to milk and that would cut my time in half.My hands ache in the cool weather (poor circulation) and I would like the freedom to be able to leave somewhere and know my hubby can take over the milking without trouble. Mike has answered all our questions very quickly and it's reassuring knowing he stands behind his machines and so helpful with choosing the right one for our needs.I don't have a clue about the things lol
