STEWART OSTER, AESCULAP and HEINIGER Blades
Occasionally one comes across AESCULAP, HEINIGER, or STEWART OSTER horse/cattle clippers where the upper and lower blades are in correctly fitted. It the motor of the machine is started with the blade incorrectly fitted substantial damages 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"
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 "Econom Plus" models
All Heiniger models except the Heiniger "Saphir"
