HEINIGER, AESCULAP and STEWART OSTER Blades
GENERAL PRODUCT INFORMATION
Occasionally one comes across AESCULAP, HEINIGER, or STEWART OSTER
horse/cattle clippers where the upper and lower blades are in- correctly
If the motor of the machine is started with the blade in-correctly fitted, substantial damage may be incurred to both the clipper head and or the body internal parts. We have seen a number of instances over the years when either one, or in some cases both the blade have been fitted "up-side-down" (the wrong way round)
It is vital therefore that all heavy and light duty AESCULAP, HEINIGER, or STEWART OSTER clippers using this type of blade, have both blades correctly fitted.
The image opposite shows this type of blade fitted to an Aesculap "Econom Plus" GT474 clipper. The two blades are fitted correctly and the machine is ready to clip. Note the way the upper and lower blades are fitted to the head as seen from the side of the clipper head. When fitted correctly there is a "depressed oval" gap between the two blades (like "pursed" lips!)
The following horse/cattle clippers are normally fitted with AESCULAP, HEINIGER, or STEWART OSTER blades of this type.
Aesculap "SE" models
Aesculap "Econom Plus" models
All Heiniger models except the Heiniger "Saphir"
Steward Oster "Clipmaster" models
MASTERCLIP models may be sold as Chinese copies of HEINIGER horse clippers.
Whilst genuine Heiniger blades may fit these machines we are unable to guarantee this or their cutting performances on these machines .
