CLIPPERS and TRIMMERS

Clipper noise level scores

PEASRIDGE use only clipper and/or trimmer production models supplied by either the Manufacturer or their distributor for the awarding of noise level score assessments. Machines are fitted with blades as supplied with the machine at the time of purchase.

Assessing the noise level and creating a "score" for any clipper or trimmer is intended for general guidance purposes only. Please remember a number of varying factors - can have a bearing on the noise level as perceived by the animal or end user.

Such factors many involve whether you are clipping inside a building, or outside in the open, whether the animal is tethered to a solid building walled or in an open yard. For clipping inside buildings one has to take into account the construction - timber or brick, the roof height to floor level and construction - all of which can have a bearing on the overall sound to the human ear - which in itself may vary. Lastly weather factors such as a clear and windless day, time of day and year may have an influence on the sound.

Things one can say with a degree of certainty are..

Every venue at which an animal clipper is used will vary and therefore so will the machine sound to the human ear.

Some machines may sound alright to the human ear, but to the animal the perception may be very different. Introductions of any clipper should be done sympathetically and on a gradual basis if you have reason to believe your animal is either new to or nervous about being clipped.

Some Lister machines have a tendency to be the nosiest of most heavy duty machines.

Some machines have a tendency to become louder in tone with age and use.

Operator lack of maintenance and the regular oiling of blades - can and does affect noise levels, as does the degree to which the blades are tensioned.

Certain modern German made machines are very low noise level and have more of a soft "tone" than noise level - these especially Aesculap - tend to be recommended for nervous animals - there is a tendency with this manufacturer to produce very low tone machines with an absence of vibration.

Many of the cheaper trimmers often have a high penetrating barber's type "hum!" - a sound which can be very disturbing to small animals especially. Others may emit a loud "Clonk" when first switched on.

No machine - clipper or trimmer is silent!

The Noise Level Score you see on our web pages are calculated with the above factors in mind and the five levels are calculated as follows ....

The Noise Level Score 1
Clippers rated with this score are considered to be "silent" Currently only one qualifies - the Aesculap "Exacta" trimmer!

The Noise Level Score 2
Clippers rated with this score are considered to be of low sound or tone level. Those with a + or - should be consider as marginally + or - in tone. Such machine would be considered for a nervous animal. Aesculap clippers which have an exceptionally low tone are frequently listed in this category.

The Noise Level Score 3
Clippers rated with this score are considered to be of lower to average sound or tone level. Those with a + or - should be consider a marginally + or - in tone.

The Noise Level Score 4
Clippers rated with this score are considered to be a noisy sound or tone level. Those with a + or - should be consider a marginally + or - in tone. Such machines are not considered suitable for any nervous animals.

The Noise Level Score 5
Clippers rated with this score are considered to be noisy. Those with a + or - should be consider a marginally + or - in tone. Such machines are not considered suitable for any nervous or new to clipping animal.

Peasridge use only new production models of both clippers and trimmers supplied by either the Manufacturer or their distributor for the assessment and awarding of an individual noise level scores. Machines are fitted with blades as supplied with the machine at the time of purchase.

Assessing the noise level and creating a "score" for any clipper or trimmer is intended for general guidance purposes only as a number of varying factors - often not known at the time - can have a bearing on the noise level perception of the end user.
