    + Engineered to perfection, with the reputation for professional reliability. A "Mercedes" of its class!

    - Tensioning may be a bit tricky until you get the knack. Spare parts slightly expensive.
    Little long in the handpiece and has a tendency to blow hair clippings over one whilst clipping.


    GENERAL PRODUCT INFORMATION:

    Aesculap Econom II GT 474 has a long established and unrivalled reputation amongst the black and white dairy cattle showmen, as well as many beef exhibitors and horse owners.

    It is considered a perfect machine for the contractor/owner who need versatility and reliability. The innovative design style featuring a slim shaped handpiece incorporates a combination of balance and lightness, to ensure the operator precision clipping to the highest standards. Excellent design features, which include a "locking" nut to hold the tensioning of the blades once you have set them.

    A heavy-duty machine, with a unique motor design, reasonably quiet, smooth running and vibration free it will clip all day without overheating. Fitted with all round air filters at the rear of the handpiece it is an easy machine to service and clean. Tensioning of the blades may need to be practised, especially if you do not use the machine a lot, although in fairness if you know what you are doing and allow for the finesse of tensioning it really very easy!

    Spare parts can be a touch pricey, but if you want real quality you have to pay that bit extra! A sheep head to convert into a shearing machine can be obtained as an optional extra, and is easily fitted. Few machines in the heavy-duty section can equal the Aesculap Econom GT474 on the range of blades, which it accepts, (including the Heiniger and Stewart Oster blade ranges.) making this machine capable of virtually any clipping task required.

    AESCULAP BLADE RANGE:
    GT 501/502 Standard
    GT 511/501 Fine
    GT 508/503 Ultra-fine
    GT 506/505 Medium
    GT 510/505 Plucking
    GT 504/503 Extra Coarse

    STEWART OSTER BLADE RANGE and HEINIGER BLADES can be fitted to this clipper.

    IMPORTANT - Please note:
    The electrical machines we offer for sale are principally for use with the electrical supply system operation in the UK namely 240volt.

    This machine is there equipped with a 240 motor and component parts and will have a supporting identification plate on the casing. In addition to working on the UK electrical system it can be used on any European 220/240 volt system.

    However it is supplied with a UK 3-pin plug and therefore will need an appropriate "adaptor" plug into which the UK 3-pin will fit. Whilst these are not readily available to us they can be easily obtained at your local electrical outlet.

    Customers outside of the UK and European Countries should check their electrical supply rating and seek professional advice from a qualified electrician.

    USA Customers should note that with a national 110-volt electrical supply system 240-volt products will need specialist converter equipment and may still not work. It is recommended that you seek professional advice from a qualified electrician before making a purchase.

    + Engineered to perfection, with the reputation for professional reliability. This is a "Mercedes" of its class - It just purrs!

    - Hard to find any fault other than perhaps being a bit long in the handpiece but this is outweighed by the performance!

    GENERAL PRODUCT INFORMATION:
    For the veterinary practice involved in clipping horses whether for surgical or husbandry purposes one should look at the Aesculap Econom "Equipe" GT674 - a German made high quality specialist horse clipper for clipping horses and is supplied with a specialist horse blade GT505/502 - a blade designed especially for horse coats As such it finds favour not only amongst individual equine owners, but many stable yards and especially those who as professionals seek a reliable machine when performing aspects of clipping for "financial" reward.

    For the veterinarian, will encounter a variety of temperaments and will meet with nervous as well as "bomb" proof animals. Therefore the professional user follows certain "guidelines" designed to avoid the obvious pitfalls as well as having and being seen to have the right "tools" for the job!

    The most obvious pitfall must be the situation where your blades go blunt before you have completed the clipping task. This happens no matter how well made the machine or blades! Therefore always have spare blades to hand. The "right tools" include a machine to clip the nervous horse, with suitably selected blades, and a good quality trimmer for fetlocks, heads and facial work.

    Aesculap Econom clippers have a long established and unrivalled reputation amongst both cattle and horse owners dating back over 50 years from the classic SE models many of which are in regular service today. The GT 674 "Equipe" was certainly no exception! Once you switch it on it oozes pure quality. The sound of that powerful motor as it purrs is like classical music to the ears! A combination of Aesculap design and engineering detail which makes their clippers so sought after and so long lasting!



    See it in operation and you will have little doubt this is how clipping an animal should be - effortless! Hear it and you know your animal will feel at ease! The motor tone is exceptional compared to other machines. German designed and German made - it epitomises precision engineering! The tone of the motor is like no other - smooth and cool running, ultra-low vibration, and powerful with low noise motor, and a blade range for every clipping eventually!

    Aesculap are renowned for their high quality engineering in veterinary implements and their parent company in human surgical items - and as always the same high quality appears in their clipping products also.

    Aesculap clippers have a long history of trouble free use with exceptional long levity. Many end users in both the cattle and horse clipping worlds still have in their possession and use regularly each season the legendary original SE models - some of which go back 50 years!

    The "Equipe" is relatively new to the UK market (2009) but has been held in high esteem by many all over Europe for longer, with many expressing complete satisfaction in its performance and reliability. It has achieved high ratings in various "Tried and Tested" examinations carried out by the German professional horse authorities and generally has come way ahead of other comparable makes.

    We tested it ourselves and found it lived up to all that was claimed. Our horse used for the test was a big cob - an animal that had a distant dislike of any clippers and noise, yet from the moment he was introduced and experienced the "Equipe" he was peacefully content and a full clip was completed with ease!

    We did find starting off clipping the thick and coarser hair immediately above the hoof horn, in an upward direction slightly difficult with the length of the handpiece but found the problems could be overcome easily by side angling the machine for a few inches! Not a problem really if you make simple adjustment.

    Any rate for this area with the detailed contours of a horse's leg and fetlock we frankly much prefer to use our battery powered MOSER "Arco" which is pure magic in such situations and get into all those awkward places far better than any of the traditional big clippers! Also the coarser the hair the more it likes it! Great tool for hairy legs and hogging!

    Whether you clip racehorses, show jumper, dressage, cross country eventer's, hunters, hack, or ponies, the Aesculap Econom "Equipe" copes with all effortlessly whatever the breed!.

    The GT674 as a heavy-duty machine, with a unique motor design producing a low wattage but retaining excellent heavy duty motor torque and power. Combined with a quiet, smooth running and vibration free feel, it will clip all day without overheating. Fitted with all two air filters at the rear of the handpiece it is an easy machine to service and clean. The head design with its oscillating carriage or yoke and twin oscillating springs either side is one much favoured by the top manufacturers and has stood the test of time over very many years! Tensioning of the blades like any machine is best practised a few times, especially if you do not use the machine a lot, although in fairness if you know what you are doing it really very easy! An experienced operator will hear a tone change in the motor and automatically know a slight adjustment is maybe needed.

    Spare parts can be a touch pricey compared to some cheaper makes, but if you want real quality you have to be prepared to pay that bit extra! In a world when there are lots of so called "bargains" which turn out often to be anything but, it pays to buy well!

    Look after this machine and your costs will be low!

    Few machines in the heavy-duty section can equal Aesculap on the range of blades which it accepts, (including the Heiniger and Stewart Oster blade ranges.) making this machine capable of virtually any clipping task required. You would be amazed at the various industrial uses Aesculap machines perform worldwide on a daily basis.

    Supplied in a good strong case, no divisions, so packing away is easy, and you don't have to screw the cable up into tiny bends and thus cause damage in time. A easily read but detailed manual with good large and explanatory diagrams is provided. Parts if needed are easily obtained. Normally our shipping service provides for next day delivery. Two or three days delay is the most you should ever experience should stocks be exhausted!

    A point on blade sharpening! There is a wide selection of blade sharpening services on offer. Be selective as to where you send your blades for sharpening! Sharpening quality can vary!

    Manufacturer's warranty is offered for a period of two year subject to the correct use of the machine and its blades and all service and repair work duly conducted by an authorised and approved establishment. On matters relating to electrical ratings Aesculap declares the machine as compliant with electrical documents as follows:
