The Accles & Shelvoke CASH Special stunning tool uses cartridges to fire a penetrating captive bolt, rendering the animal insensitive to pain prior to the slaughtering process. Choosing the right tool is essential, with an effective stun leading to improved meat quality, ease of handling, reduced stress on the animal and compliance with animal welfare regulations.
The CASH Special was launched in 1981, following a long line of pistol shaped tools. It has an ergonomic and easy to use design, with the pistol grip and trigger operated firing mechanism maximising comfort. Two positive actions are required to cock the tool to increase safety, and automatic bolt return increases speed of operation.
The CASH Special stunner is manufactured in the UK using the finest materials, highest standards and most precise tolerances to a design proven over many years. The result is an incredibly dependable and tough stunner that is trusted by meat processors around the world.
