I bought one and used it on my Angel... the constant suction needed to extract the milk was too much and my pretty pink teated doe ended up with purple teats for an hour after use :( Also, the "shell/ teat cups" are simply syringes without the plungers, hard plastic with no give to them

We bought alot of stuff to customize it, a larger teat cup and a gallon recepticle

Just bumping this one up. Still haven't bought a Maggidan milker. Was mostly thinking of buying one for when my husband has to milk. But this year I have a doe that has such small teats that I am having a hard time milking her. Now I am thinking it is time for me to get one for her. I will probably sell her so don't want to invest in a pulsating machine cause I actually enjoy hand milking. Anyone else have good luck with it??

I recently bought something very similar, only it uses a glass mason jar to collect the milk. I got it for my FF with tiny teats. It works GREAT!

I have a Maggidan. I like it. I don't use it all that much though. When I do I go slow and release often as to not damage their teats...

I have one as well. I have not been able to hand milk my two ND (first goats, small teats and no clue what I am doing). I found that realeasing the suction once the milk stop flowing and starting again, along with masaging the udder seems to do a great job. It is simple to use and works great for me.
