AlumiSpec™ Equine SpeculumAlumiSpec Equine Speculum

The AlumiSpec™ Equine Speculum is a revolutionary new mouth speculum that is made of lightweight aircraft aluminum. It is patterned after the “MacAllan” style speculum popular in the 1950's. The advantage of this style of speculum is that it can be used on any size horse – from miniature to draft.

Another advantage of the AlumiSpec™ is that it can be used in the conventional "handle down" position or inverted with the handle up (pictured). When the handle is up it does not interfere with the headstand and gives the practitioner superior leverage and control when opening the mouth.

The new AlumiSpec™ weighs under four pounds compared to thirteen pounds for those made from stainless steel. We have taken the same materials and techniques used in manufacturing aircraft parts and applied these to the design and manufacture of this style speculum. The result is a speculum that is extremely lightweight yet is able to stand up to the bending forces that can be applied to it.

Another innovation is the use of a synthetic fabric strap for the speculum lock. Instead of standard preset fixed locking points, this cinch-lock mechanism permits an infinite number of openings. It is made of a material that is extremely durable, easy to clean and is pliable at all temperatures. The strap is relatively easy and inexpensive to replace. This material is also used for the head straps. Replacement parts are available.

 We offer several styles of McPherson speculums depending on the level of quality and finish you desire and the material the unit is made from.

 Bronze Alloy Models

Our most popular premium speculum is made in Australia from a 40-ton, high tensile strength bronze alloy. It has biothane straps that are supple yet virtually indestructible in daily use. Two sizes are available. One for full-size horses and a smaller one for ponies, foals, neonates and some miniature horses. The latter has two sets of incisor cups; one smaller and one larger. Replacement parts are available.

Harlton's Mouth WedgeHarlton's Mouth Wedge

The unique design of The Harlton's Mouth Wedge allows several teeth to rest on it at one time. This keeps it from slipping and spreads the force across several teeth to reduce the danger of cracking. The wedge portion is covered with a thick piece of neoprene making it more comfortable for the horse. The neoprene is durable and well accepted by the horse.

The length of the mouthpiece is 3-1/4" and is 1-1/2" wide. The height (at the widest part) is 2" and the length of the handle is 8-1/2". The neoprene replacement kit contains two neoprene pads, eight screws and an allen-head wrench.
