HIGHLY RECOMMENDED


+ Highly Impressive! Traditional German quality combined with outstanding design and engineering skills. Intended to give years of reliability. The FAV5 mains version has quickly shown its ability in the many aspects of the grooming world both in the UK and worldwide. It has produced quiet outstanding performance results in the field of the nervous animals to become one of the most accepted clipping machine for nervous animals most especially horses!- The FAV5 CL cordless should be expected to equal and build on that success l.

- We have never approved of rear end positioning of on/off switch for emergency use

GENERAL PRODUCT INFORMATION :
A "detachable" A5 blade powerful professional cordless clipper of exceptional low noise level with virtually no vibration, which will take all makes of recognised A5 type detachable pre- tensioned blades both narrow and wide.

The Aesculap FAV5 CL has similarities in style to the very successful Heiniger "Saphir" (Which we understand Aesculap had considerable involvement with during a period of joint collaboration between the two companies!). However the powerful motor enables you to be more ambitious in your clipping scope! The FAV5 CL is more compact than the "Saphir" - shorter by about a half an inch (with both blade and battery fitted) and the body casing has been carefully designed to provide a slim line "shaped hold" for maximum "grip" comfort when operating. The overall visual and practical effect is one of a really nice compact slim handpiece!

Another instantly recognised feature when you switch the machine on is the smooth unmistakable "Aesculap" motor tone. Aesculap clippers have always been noted for motors that emitted smoother tones than many other similar machines and the FAV5"CL" builds on this quieter motor feature with vibration eradicated.

Essentially designed with the features FAV5 main clipper, but a cordless version! - A "detachable" A5 type blade using professional machine slightly shorter in length than the mains powered FAV5 and with a slimmer styled body casing that is extremely comfortable to hold and work with. Typically German! - Well thought through design and of course engineered and manufactured to perfection!

German made products have a long history of being engineered to a standard close to perfection, and as one would expect from the top German veterinary manufacturer, the Aesculap FAV5 CL continues on that legacy - especially important for any professional dog parlour clipper where product reliability is the keyword.

Peasridge was privileged to conduct intensive practical field trials with the FAV5 mains machine and with the cordless version prior to production. As we expected the FAV5 CL fully lived up to the very high standards of performance set by the FAV5 mains machine and fully met the criteria's we have come to expect from Aesculap over many years of association.

Price conscious customers may not always appreciate the number of engineering features that lifts a machine of this calibre into a superior category and which places it ahead of other and often cheaper competitors:

A ball bearing universal motor provides great durability

A smooth low noise level motor tone - the hallmark of Aesculap quality!

The expectancy of a long working life of reliability

A smooth running motor with low cutting stroke ratio generating virtually a total absence of vibration.

A ventilation system eliminating overheating in prolonged use. A ventilation system eliminating overheating in prolonged use.

The motor and component parts in an unbreakable body casing

Made in Germany, by highly skilled German engineers

Two year manufacturer's warranty.

Manufactured to a standard rarely seen these days.



Given normal treatment, disciplined cleaning after use, and attention to the minimal routine maintenance, then a FAV 5 cordless will generally be with you for several decades which is normally a lot longer than many other - less expensive machines - and whose service and repair bills may very soon exceed the initial investment of an Aesculap! No professional business can afford it principle tools to disrupt the working day with breakdowns - hence the importance in buying right!

Yes - the retail price is higher than other more economy machines! Aesculap make no apology for producing high quality product without compromise! A superior product usually works out much cheaper in maintenance costs over the many years of service it gives.

DOG GROOMERS:
Whilst many dog groomers are traditionally user of "mains machine", it could be worth thinking about some of the advantages reliable cordless machines now offer. The new generation of cordless clippers are a vast improvement to those of previous decades with major advances in battery technology. Batteries have become less unreliable in terms of holding charge, much lighter, less expensive, and far easier to maintain in peak performance given that you use them correctly. As the Heiniger "Saphir" has shown - quality cordless machines are quickly appreciated in dog grooming circles and eagerly sought when groomers are assured of high quality and machine that will allow them the continuing use their existing blades!!

The FAV5 offer this and more! Whilst some may feel the purchase price is somewhat higher than they had wished to invest, consider for a moment realistically the regular repair and maintenance bills of the more "attractively" priced machines and the financial effect of a robust business being inconvenienced with mechanical breakdowns. One major breakdown couple with the interruption of your business can change the perception of price!

PET OWNERS - HOME CLIPPING:
Most start with a cheap fixed blade clipper only to learn that despite all that is written on the packaging - this is not the machine - nor blade for the family pets clip! Those with "clipped breeds are not seeking the standard of show clipping, just simple husbandry clipping! It is the "A5 type detachable blade using clipper that is needed, and for many who lack the experience of the professional yet are equally capable of clipping their dog - the cordless machine is perfect! In many instances not only does a cordless machine offer greater flexibility in clipping when and where you want, but it eliminates having to worry about trailing cables whilst you work!

EQUINE OWNERS:
The Aesculap FAV5 "CL" Cordless offers owners of almost impossible to clip nervous horses a real chance for the first time to clip your animal! - In many cases without the need for sedation and the associated veterinary cost! If your horse is not of a nervous temperament then this machine is NOT for you!

Whilst projected at the dog grooming market, the equine owner with a clipper shy horse the FAV5 CL advances clipping to a higher level than the amazing abilities of the FAV5 mains machine!. This must surely be the answer to the clipping nightmare so many endure!! At last a professional and powerful "cordless" small and compact clipper with a "smooth tone" low level of working noise that many horses will find not disturbing..

On all our extensive tests on nervous horses with the mains version - whether Thor'bred, hairy cobs or natives - we found the smooth and soft noise of the clipper blades when operating plus the lack of any vibration made for a more contented horse and a stress freer operator. On so many occasions those testing it for the first time on their really nervous horses before they subsequently purchased freely admitted they had experienced a "first " in the experience of "normal" clipping (often to without the added cost of veterinary sedation!)

We would stress that as good as any clipping machine is - and both the Aesculap FAV5's are in a league of their own when it come to clipping nervous horses, it is important the operator acquires knowledge of the various detachable wide blades which are suitable for the task in hand. No two horses have identical coat textures, clips can and often do vary from season to season. There are a number of "wide" blades on the market, not all have been designed "exclusively" for full body clipping of horses. Intended and designed for the large dog breeds and perhaps they happen to clip a horse! Different blades will perform better on various clipping tasks! Seek advice - blade knowledge is important! When you use the A5 detachable blade using type clipper, you need to think and clip differently to the traditional type machine and blades.

Our own extensive field trials with both mains and cordless versions suggest very convincingly that both the Moser 2.3mm standard #10 wide and the Aesculap 2.4mm standard full wide #10 blade are the blades best suited to equine full body clipping, whilst others may give a result, these two blades have proved themselves highly successful. In the case of certain thor'bred breeds with very fine bordering on almost "wispy" type coats the Moser 2.3mm fine #10 wide may prove a more successful blade to use. We give a good deal of information on both blades, please read and compare both if applicable.

It is worth mentioning that the manner in which the operator uses theses machines - is - crucial to the quality of the performance and clip. It is "essential" the operator takes a "relaxed" approach to the clipping task, does not rush the clipping and at all times allows the machine to glide through the coat, rather than attempting to push the clipper at a pace faster than it can cope. The operators hand should be an instrument of "guidance" not attempting to "push!" All too often those clipping appear to require too clip at a pace that is not commensurate with the blade - whether traditional or detachable, and no matter what make of machine is used! This must be acknowledged and applied from the start!

Other factors such as individual length of a cutting stroke is crucial - short lengths, rather than long "blows" produce far better results than clipping in long "lawn mower" stripes. Criss cross clipping action in confined areas rather than open up extensive areas give a more professional finish. At all times the blade face must be flat to the animal's body surface."Aquaplane" and the result may well be "tramlines!"

Frequent oiling of blades whatever machine used is essential too! Lubrication is the only way all makes of blades can keep cool and running in a performance that gives a satisfactory clip. The Aesculap cordless clipper is no different! A small quantity of oil every 3/5 minutes should be the discipline!

VETERINARIANS
For the laboratory or veterinarian in clinical work - where reliability and continuous use is of paramount importance - a machine of this calibre will easily undertake large or small animal work whether in a university laboratory or busy surgery!

LONG HAIRED CAT & RABBIT OWNERS:
Our extensive tests convince us it is especially ideal for clipping any long hair nervous cat breeds due to its ultra low noise tone, as well as the absence of vibration. Cats are not one of the clipped species that are generally easy to handle and a cordless machine offer the owner or operator additional comfort in the knowledge that they do not have to consider restriction of a cable when the machine is in use or the trailing cable on the floor. The compact nature of the FAV5 CL is an added attraction to the already stated low noise level and absence of vibration. The narrow blade range will allow you to a wide choice in blade selection for all nature of tasks you may wish or need to carry out!

An ideal choice for those who have to tackle the daunting task of cutting away Matts from both long haired cats and rabbit breeds

In addition to long haired cats it is perfect for routine, and hygiene use on the many pet breeds of both long and short haired rabbits. Owners of rabbit breeds with a valuable commercial fibre will find the clipper perfect for all types of "fibre shearing", and the wide range of blades available can be used to cope with every requirement.

ANGORA GOAT SMALL FLOCK OWNERS:
Light and compact, it is perfect for removing the valuable coat product of the Angora whether goat or rabbit. With a wide range of A5 detachable blades that can be selected for whatever the task confronting you, you will have no problem in seeking a solution to your needs.

ALPACCA SMALL STUD OWNERS:
Many small studs of alpacas are successfully clipped or "sheared" annually with small detachable A5 blade type clippers. Generally with the lack of powerful cordless machines, mains machines have been used. Now the Aesculap FAV5 CL offer the opportunity to clip what is not one of the easiest species - in cordless mode! The smooth low tone notes of the FAV5 are beneficial to the operator and perfect for your animals in ensuring that minimum stress is created. Using similar wide blades recommended for full body horse clipping and switching to a narrow blade where it is felt more suitable the FAV5 CL offers considerable flexibility.

As with equine full body clipping, so with the Alpaca, the correct blade selection is crucial and again both the Moser 2.3mm standard #10 wide and the Aesculap 2.4mm standard full wide #10 blade are in our opinion by far the best blades suited for quality clipping performance of a high value fleece.

+ Smart and innovative cordless clipper ideal for the mobile groomer or "field" Veterinary Surgeon. Good value!

- Not really suitable for horses for "full body clipping,

GENERAL PRODUCT INFORMATION:
An attractive, well-designed cordless professional small animal and dog groomer's clipper, which although not intended for horses could also be used on certain fine coated breeds who are really nervous about being clipped.

American made, this is a machine which will have an appeal to many mobile groomers, as well as veterinary practices. One major point in its favour is the reasonable cost of acquiring a second battery to give "continuous" clipping.

Good design features incorporating a comfortable shaped handpiece which when fitted with the battery is well balanced and relatively light. Blade attachment is easy to operate, smooth and crisp. Under prolonged use the motor remains cool running, with an acceptable noise level and little vibration. The on/off switch is perfectly placed for easy operation in an emergency.

The machine is supplied with an Andis #10 "Ceramic Edge" blade. The blade consists of a steel comb blade and a ceramic cutter. Ceramic blades are considered to run cooler and stay sharper for a longer period. It should be noted however that there is a "running in" period before these advantages are evident, and therefore you will not notice the benefits immediately.

The charger is easy to operate and incorporates several new features in advanced technology (Sensa-Charge - a unique system that charges the battery to maximum charge every time.) LED lights indicate the state of the battery, and an innovative system allows a "refresh" to condition the battery. Supplied in neat hard carrying case.

ANDIS "ULTRA EDGE" BLADE RANGE:
Andis #50 - 0.2mm cut
Andis #40 - 0.25mm cut
Andis #40SS - 0.25mm cut

+ Smart and innovative cordless clipper ideal for the "field" Veterinary Surgeon. Good value!

- Not really suitable for horses for "full body clipping,

GENERAL PRODUCT INFORMATION:
A "clone" of the successful black Andis AGR+ cordless clipper - the "Vet Pack" is a tailor made version for the professional veterinarian in an attractive green casing and supplied with a ceramic #40 surgical 0.25mm blade from the Andis "Ceramic Edge" blade range.

A well-designed cordless professional small animal clipper, which has potential for veterinary use with larger animals as well. The machine has the blade hinge assembly that enables it to take most makes of "detachable" blades including both narrow and wide detachable blades. Oster blades and the popular German makes of Aesculap and Moser all fit and are interchangeable.

American made, this machine instantly had an appeal to many vets at a time when the choice was very much narrowed to a limited number with the Oster Power Pro the main alternative. Today with the advent of the Heiniger "Saphir" which has found a big appeal with many vets, the selection is more favourable, and both the Andis and Heiniger model would appear to have a more reasonably price - as well as rather more "reliable" batteries!

As with the earlier AGR+ (Black) good design features incorporating a comfortable shaped handpiece which when fitted with the battery iresult in both a well balanced and relatively light machine. Blade attachment is easy to operate, smooth and crisp. Under prolonged use the motor remains cool running, with an acceptable low noise level and little vibration. The on/off switch is perfectly placed for easy operation in an emergency.

The machine is supplied with an Andis #40 "Ceramic Edge" blade. The blade consists of a steel comb blade and a ceramic cutter. Ceramic blades are considered to run cooler and stay sharper for a longer period. It should be noted however that there is a "running in" period before these advantages are evident, and therefore you will not notice the benefits immediately.

Like most Andis clippers there is a minor routine maintenance tasks to perform to keep the machine in peak performance. Principally this involves the replacement of the "blade drive assembly". This should be done when you are of the opinion that the performance of the clipper is not at its peak - always assuming the blade in use is not losing it cutting edge - (use several blades to test) if the performance still seems to be below par change the blade drive assembly. Instruction are given in your manual.

The charger is easy to operate and can be used with the in - car adapter (supplied with clipper kit) - the usual method of inserting into the car cigarette lighter adapter slot. A green light on the car adapter will indicate the adapter is plugged in correctly and taking current. (If not working the fuse may need replacing)

A cord pack is available as an optional extra. This allows for the conversion from battery to corded. This is achieved by releasing the battery and replacing it with the cord pack.

+ Outstanding cordless professional small animal clipper fulfilling many roles. Peasridge rate this one of the best for the price! Fast re-charge time. Constant reliability! Excellent value considering the quality!

- Hard really to find much to criticise - maybe a larger blade release lever would have been more user friendly - although in fairness it compares well with other makes ! The On/off switch could be more accessible.

GENERAL PRODUCT INFORMATION :
When we saw the "Saphir" for the first time at the major German Trade Fair "Interzoo" in 2008 we felt we were looking at a machine that had an ability to bring a new bench mark to the world of the small animal cordless machine.

Several months later when we received a production model to try and test - many veterinary practices all over the UK confirmed our suspicions - a potential winner!

All the vets who tested the machine asked the same question - how soon can you supply one!

Heiniger are renowned Internationally for their large animal clippers and perhaps even more so for the high quality shearing equipment they manufactures, so say nothing of probably manufacturing one of the most comprehensive cutter and comb blade range designed for every shearing possibility.

In over two decades we have seen Heiniger establish themselves in the UK - both in the field of sheep shearing and also in the equine world, facing strong traditional competition, to become one of the leading players in the UK market, and a major International manufacturer highly respected both in respect of sheep shearing and large animal clipping.

The "Saphir" as we confidently predicted soon established Heiniger as a first choice amongst a large number of veterinary practitioners both in the UK, Europe and internationally. Vets - wherever they practise seek reliability and quality combined! Certainly the Heiniger "Saphir" has since being launched offered both Against traditional veterinary clippers it set new bench marks for quality, shape, weight and battery reliability which will be eagerly grasped by the veterinary end user.

Whilst cordless clipper are not always the preferred choice amongst professional dog groomers with the vast majority selecting the corded models, the "Saphir" will no doubt be a serious contender with the many mobile groomers and those domestic pet owners who prefer the advantages of cordless compared to mains machines.

Professional Groomers will be pleased to read that as with most detachable blade taking machines the Heiniger "Saphir" can be used with any of your existing detachable A5 type blades including those of Oster, Andis, Aesculap, Moser and Wahl manufacture, as well as the newly created range of fifteen blades currently available from Heiniger which closely mirror the Oster range in the various sizes.

Whilst the "Saphir" has obvious attraction for the owners of nervous horses, and is for specific tasks, when fitted with the correct blade, a good choice - we do have "reservations" about its ability to perform full body clipping even with Moser wide blades which are probably for most horses the best for the purpose. With many variations in the coat texture of horses - especially cobs and natives we would be nervous recommending it for the job of "full-body clipping" - preferring a machine with a more powerful motor.(Aesculap Fav5 CL)

Features including the low noise levels plus relative none existence of vibration will be especially appealing to the end user. When doing the fetlocks or hogging try switching to a #40 or even a #30 blade for those denser and more coarse areas and clip freestyle to avoid going to close. An attachment comb could be considered.

The "Saphir" is delightfully lightweight - a mere 0.44kg - even with battery attached, nice and compact - under 205mm/8-inches including a narrow blade attached , comfortable to both hold, well balanced and easy to operate whether in a male or female hand. The clipper body casing design is moulded to give a slimmer and improved grip just were you hold it! The powerful 35 watt motor has soft motor note that is instantly associated with high quality engineering of the Germanic type. Free of vibration its single speed motor provides 2650 double cutting strokes per minute.

As a veterinary clipper it will invariably be judged against the Oster Power Pro Mk II - the clipper almost universally used by UK vets! Sadly the new Mk II Oster has not in our experience proved to be reliable in so far as the battery unit has been concerned especially!

Many vets have experienced frustration as well as additional expense when discovering Mk I batteries in their possession would not fit the new Mk II battery charger with expensive knock on costs if your Mk I charger failed and you had to replace it! If that was not bad enough one too often found the battery failed to charge correctly!

Another annoying feature - although in fairness most vets accepted it - probably due to no alternative - the Power Pro is noticeably heavy and slightly unbalanced when connected to either Mk I or Mk II batteries. Battery weight clearly affects the handling balance in our opinion.

Now there is an alternative - the "Saphir" has a lightweight battery at 100grams compared to the Oster battery at twice the weight (200grams)

The "Saphir" from the end user perception has to be the nicer balanced machine to use! The operating feel of the "Saphir" is robust powerful and professional - it offers a confident clip whether surgical or more prolonged. One critical observation - the rear mounted switch is not in our favourite position for an emergency stop! We would have preferred the switch to be more accessible.

The "Saphir" is powered by a lightweight Lithium-ion batteries - it is supplied with two for continuous clipping. Lithium ion batteries are common in consumer electronics and are one of the most popular types of battery for portable electronics, with one of the best energy-to-weight ratios; they have no memory effect and a slow loss of charge when not in use.

Each battery has a clip time of 50 minutes with a fast re-charge time of 45 minutes Lithium-ion batteries (sometimes abbreviated Li-ion batteries) are a type of rechargeable battery in which lithium ion moves between the anode and cathode. The lithium ion moves from the anode to the cathode during discharge and in reverse, from the cathode to the anode, when charging.

The light and compact charger unit provides two charging bays. If the clipper with battery is placed in the charging bay, (Bay with raised back surround.) the charger will charge the clipper. The spare battery in its charging bay however will not be charged. Remove the clipper from its charging bay, the charger will then charge the spare battery. A red led light indicating charging is in progress, a green led light indicating charging has completed. In the rear of the charger casing slots enable it to be wall mounted if required

Field use relative to battery clip time is a concern to many vets on farm and other visits, however with two batteries, you have a total of about 100 plus minutes clipping time - each battery lasting just under one hour. In the light of this Heiniger inform us that a separate car charging unit is considered not necessary. If a vet starts with two freshly charged batteries in the morning he/she should complete the daily visits without experiencing charging problems.

As with most detachable blade taking machines the "Saphir" can be used with any of your existing detachable A5 type blades including those of Oster, Andis, Aesculap, Moser and Wahl manufacture, as well as the newly created range of fifteen blades currently available from Heiniger which closely mirror the Oster range in the various sizes.

The "Saphir is supplied without a blade in consideration that most end user purchasing this excellent machine will be either vets or dog groomer and therefore are likely to have their own detachable preferred blades. The Heiniger blade range offers two surgical type blades - a size #50/0.4mm and a size #40/0.8mm. Close blades sizes #30/0.8 and #15/1.5mm. A popular size #10/1.8mm and both sizes #9/2mm and #8.5/2.8mm. Body blades include skip tooth and full blades in sizes #7/3.2mm, #5/6mm and #4/9.5mm. A toe blade - size #5/8 at 0.8mm and a wide blade #10W/2.3mm.

Most standard type attachment comb can be fitted to blades from blades size #50 to size #8.5. Blades of all makes below this size do not accept attachment combs, due to the increasing size of the comb blade. Also combs will not fit the "detachable" wide type blades as used for large dog breeds or for full body horse clipping. Attachment combs are designed to leave a greater length of un-cut hair than the blade alone would normally leave. As such they are used mainly by dog groomers and domestic pet owners. It is important to remember however that if you use an attachment comb you must be very particular with the grooming of the coat. There MUST NOT be any tangles or knots - otherwise the comb may come off the blade, refusing to pass through the hair, and the clipping process may be painful to the animal!

The "Saphir" comes packaged in a superbly laid out hard carry case - well designed and perfect for the "on the move" practitioner, for storage in surgery, or the mobile groomer, or pet owner - even down to three compartments to store your surgical or other blades! Few manufactures provide such refreshing attention to detail! One of the nice aspects of this well laid out case is that all the items store well in provided compartments - even down to the charger cable - usually impossible to pack away!

We were highly impressed with Heiniger consideration of consumer needs and especially their very precise and well written instruction manual text and supporting images all of which are done in a most informative and easily understood manner to embrace both the professional and novice user! This is refreshing to see at a time when many non-professional are turning to the skill of clipping and fulfils the requirements of current UK legislation in safely standard.

Case dimension:
Height: Just over 11-inches/28.3cm
Length: 13.5-inches/34.5cm
Depth: 3.5-inches/9cm
laden weight: approx.. 2kgs

Standard case contents:
Heiniger "Saphir" clipper complete with battery
Spare additional battery
Charger base unit with lead (approx..: 6ft/183cm) and 3 pin charge/plug
100ml Clipper oil
Cleaning brush
Clipper manual/instruction booklet

PEASRIDGE CONCLUSION!
The Heiniger "Saphir" will surely be eagerly welcomed by many veterinary practices should they be in the market for whatever reason to purchase a new machine. We are confident the Heiniger "Saphir" will make a sound investment!
In our opinion dog groomers will find the "Saphir" has a lot to offer against most mains machines and with the new improved battery power a serious contender. For domestic pet owners - cordless offers many advantages.

+ An impressive cordless trimmer, which has proven itself over the years to become highly regarded by equine owners producing some outstanding work especially on nervous animals.

- Very hard to find fault with even after a decade or more-

GENERAL PRODUCT INFORMATION:
The Moser "Adelar" is one of Moser's "Horseline" range and whilst a clone of the proven Moser "Arco" of which it is virtually identical it does have three principle differences

1. The clip time is stated as 60 minutes per battery unit (x 2) as opposed to the "Arco" which is stated as 80 minutes per battery. (As the batteries of each appear identical we are uncertain as to how this extra 20 minutes is achieved!)
2. The "Adelar" was originally supplied in the tradition "Horseline" plastic carry case but is now supplied in a smaller and lesser quality black carry case.
3. The four attachment combs supplied with the "Arco" are not included.(Presumably thought un-necessary for horses.)

As with the "Arco" the "Adelar" is both innovative and well-designed as an exceptional cordless trimmer that more than fulfils the concept of German quality both in design and engineering! Although now over a decade or more in production, it still remains one of the best of its type. Whilst the "Adelar" is promoted as the horse trimmer and the "Arco" as a dog/pet trimmer (due to the addition of attachment combs)

Like the "Arco" the Moser "Adelar" can also be used with equal success for a wide range of task involving Cattle, dogs, cats, rabbits and other small domestic pets as well as vets with an equine requirement

EQUINE :
With a remarkably low noise factor, minimal vibration, and no cables this is a superb and normally very successful trimmer for use on any nervous horse. It meets all the requirements of owner's needs whether seeking a good quality "companion" trimmer to compliment a traditional full body machine, or a machine suitable to get young or really nervous horse used to clipping.

Whilst many horse may tolerate body clipping there are those who are highly nervous or sensitive and are un-happy to have their heads/faces clipped with a traditional machine. The "Adelar" is ideal for both facial work and with the blade suitability adjusted it is exceptional for clipping coarse leg feathers as many horse owners have found!

The "Adelar" offers continuous clipping from two interchangeable battery units each providing a clip time on average of 60 minutes (Assuming you start clipping with fully charged batteries you have a total time of 120 minutes). Re-charge time is achieved comfortably within 90 minutes. Batteries are of the Ni-MH type and if as suspected you are likely store your machine for lengthy non active periods it is recommended purchasers familiarise themselves with the recommended battery storage instructions.

The angled clipping head is fitted with a "snap on" type blade offering the choice of five cutting positions. This innovative feature allows you to select a depth of cut or hair length ranging from 0.1mm to 3mm in five separate positions (Cheaper competitors invariably offer only three positions.) As many have discovered five selectable blade cutting positions offers a greater flexibility especially for the various tasks that the "Adelar" can be used for. Greater cutting depths could be obtained by using attachment combs which can be purchased as optional extras.

Contrary to what you may be often told Moser "Arco" and "Adelar" blades are capable of being re-sharpened several times..

+ A highly impressive cordless trimmer, which has proven itself over the years to become highly regards especially by equine owners and small animal groomers producing some outstanding work especially on nervous animals.

GENERAL PRODUCT INFORMATION:
Made by Moser of Germany, this innovative and well-designed cordless trimmer more than fulfil the concept of German quality both in design and engineering! Although now over a decade or more in production, it still remains one of the best of its type. The "Arco" offers continuous clipping from two interchangeable battery packs each providing a clip time on average of 80 minutes. Re-charge time is achieved comfortably within 90 minutes

The angled clipping head is fitted with a "snap on" five position type blade. The innovative blade design has built in adjustment offering five cutting adjustments to select from. (0.1mm to 3mm) Further cutting depths can be obtained by using the attachment combs supplied. Blades contrary to what you may be told are capable of being re-sharpened several times.

The "Arco is supplied with two battery power packs. Whilst each may contain a small amount of charge, these should be charged the first time the appliance is used for a full 90 minutes. Below the on/off switch a small red LED will be seen - if this indicates RED when in operation it is indicating about 15% of power/charge is left in the battery. Once the battery is fully charge the LED charging indicator on the charger unit will start flashing.

CATTLE :
The "Arco" with its many attractive features relating to both the machine and blade offers a number of applications for exhibition cattle whether beef or dairy. It is especially suitable for facial grooming, last minute show clipping, dairy udder and dairy "top line" work.

DOG & CAT OWNERS :
As a cordless machine it offers considerable potential to the domestic dog owner wanting to clip their own pet and seeking a more professional machine whether for breed style clipping or general husbandry clipping. The same features as listed are very much applicable for long haired cat breeds especially where you are involved in cutting out Matts when the adjustability of the blade will be a valuable advantage.

DOMESTIC RABBIT OWNERS :
For owners of pet rabbits a cordless machine offers considerable advantages whether you are involved with body clipping or general husbandry clipping. The five point adjustment of the blade offers flexibility to perform a range of tasks

VETERINARY PRACTICES :
A popular choice with many veterinary practises whether specialising in large or small animals - or both! Principle requirements for most practises are clipper reliability, good battery clip time and fast recharge, as well as blade flexibility suitable for day to day surgery use - the "Arco" meets all requirements.

The adjustable blade set in the 0.03mm position offer a surgical close clip for surgical and injection purposes.

PEASRIDGE star rating: DOWNGRADED to THREE STAR
Rating 70%


+ One of a few cordless professional clippers with two batteries. Fast re-charge time. Very compact unit!

- DOWNGRADED due to battery problems. In many outlets only sold with one battery! Gets a touch expensive when you start to buy extras!!

GENERAL PRODUCT INFORMATION :
The Oster Power Pro Mk2 certainly has a role for use in the veterinary world - small, relatively pleasant to handle -- certainly an improvement on the earlier model although still not wonderfully balanced compared to some, compact and with low noise level plus relative low vibration.

We do however feel obliged to make customers aware we have "DOWNGRADED" this clipper to a THREE STAR RATING on the grounds that regrettably there has been a developing pattern of new Oster power pro Mk II batteries which appear to either be supplied ex factory in a non working state or rapidly malfunction after purchase and subsequent use.

Whilst it clearly is not a case of all batteries at fault there is an unacceptable proportion which have come to our attention, and whilst we have drawn the matter frequently to the attention of the UK distributor, who "presumably" has advised the manufacturer, to date we find there appears no evidence of a re-dress of the problem as malfunctioning batteries are still being received.
.
Veterinary and Equine customer considering making a new purchase may wish to consider an alternative machine - The Heiniger "Saphir" which with over a year of buoyant sales on the UK market has proved itself so far faultless. (product code: C0117)

We would recommend for full body horse clipping the Moser wide blade 2.3mm blade as one of the better blades for the many and various textures of coats likely to be experienced rather than the Oster matching wide blade.

When doing the fetlocks or hogging try switching to a #40 or #30 blade for those denser and more coarse areas and clip freestyle to avoid going to close. An attachment comb could be considered.

Introduced as the successor to the popular "green" bodied Mk 1 Oster Power pro (A few other colours existed as well) the clipper head and hand grip shape basically remains unchanged other than for the casing covering which has been clad with a pleasant soft "non slip" material with a rubberise feel. The new battery attachment is however slimmer and now follows the shape of the clipper. One instantly notices the improved balance the new styled battery affords compared to the rather poorly balance earlier Mk 1 model!

Clipper and battery are claimed to be around 15% lighter than the earlier model! Oster state that the clipper drive lever delivers a more powerful sweep as a result of being driven by a slightly more powerful motor - thus it is claimed the Mk2 clipper gives a greater and superior cutting performance! The benefit of this would presumably be particularly noticeable when clipping for example, a horse using a wide detachable blade.

Unlike the way it is normally supplied in the UK, we offer the Oster Power Pro complete with TWO batteries (In the US it is also sold with two batteries for continuous clipping!) We feel customers will require the same - continuous clipping facility - rather than have the added expense of purchasing an additional battery at the time of purchase or later!

Considering Oster still supply their mains powered A5 clippers in boxes, it is refreshing, to see a case of such quality being supplied with their cordless machine! The clipper is beautifully packaged in a spacious lightweight aluminium case - weighing fully loaded - clipper battery and accessories - a mere 2.4kg (if you buy from Peasridge due to the fact it is then supplied with not one but two batteries!) Carefully padded with foam cut out compartments (unlikely these will last long with normal use but they look good when new!) - Both clipper and the entire accessories are stored safely. All very nicely designed and laid out!

Case dimension:
Height: Less than 12-inches/30cm allowing for the folded handle and locking catches
Length: Just over 11-inches/28.3cm
Depth: 4.75-inches/12cm
Un laden weight: approx 1.8kgs

The battery unit is said to be "improved" with the introduction of the new type of NIMH battery units. However it has to be said battery reliability on new models has been "disappointing" to date - resulting in the clipper being downgraded in our star assessment!

For those who want to know…………. the nickel-metal hydride battery, abbreviated NiMH, is a type of rechargeable or storage battery similar to another well know battery type the "Nickel-cadmium" (NiCd) but using a hydrogen-absorbing alloy for the negative electrode instead of cadmium. As in NiCd batteries, the positive electrode is nickel oxyhydroxide (NiOOH) A NiMH battery can have two to three times the capacity of an equivalent size NiCd. However, compared to the lithium-ion battery the volumetric energy density is lower and self-discharge is higher.

It is said one useful feature of these batteries is they do not have the annoying memory feature as often common with some earlier types of batteries, but you will need to recharge and discharge these batteries several times before they reaches their "optimum" performance when first purchased! Also if the battery is not used for a period of time, or has been stored away unused re-charging will again be necessary.

Whilst the manufacturer claims the battery delivers "state of the art intelligence charging to maximum its working life, they do add that every few months if you are not a regular user you should switch on (remover the blade first) and run the clipper until the battery is fully discharged. Then recharge accordingly. This could well apply to horse owners, who engage in seasonal clipping with a long spell of in-action in between. If you are the typical busy dog groomer or veterinarian and use a cordless machine, well you probably need not bother!

When fully discharged the normal recharge time for the battery is between 50 and 60 minutes. You can check the running status of your battery at any time by placing it in the slot provided on the charger and observing the LED light in the centre.

LED light on the front alerts you to the state of play……….
Red light continuous - indicates re-charging is required.
Green light continuous - indicates the clipper now ready for use
Red blinking light - You need to invest in a new battery - Red light says - "kaput"

The charger is far more compact and smaller than the old black charger of the previous model, and the two slots for spare blades have been done away with! Of course this is all about a single battery so only one recharging slot also!

There is a connection point provided on the rear on the charger for a plug to power the recharge unit off any 12v supply such as in a vehicle. This is not currently available in the UK but expected shortly when it will be available as an optional extra - at extra cost!

A slot in the groove of the charger assists in ensuring the battery is correctly offered into the slot for recharging - so no fear of getting it incorrect! So easy you could do it in the dark!

As with the previous Mk1 model you can re-charge with the clipper handpiece attached to the battery or just the battery on its own. One small but useful as well as thoughtful addition to the charger unit is that a set of four tiny suction pad feet have been added to the underside of the charger to ensure it stays put and does not slip off a shelf or work surface!
