PEASRIDGE "BUY" AWARD

PRODUCT INFORMATION
The "Saphir" when first launched in the early 2000’s quickly established Heiniger as a first choice amongst many veterinary practitioners in the UK, and internationally. Within a short space of time many professional dog groomers and those domestic pet owners followed prefer the advantages of cordless compared to mains machines especially one that used A5 type detachable blades.

Two features of the "Saphir – the low noise level plus relative none existence of vibration will be especially appealing to all users. 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 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 a powerful 2650 double cutting strokes per minute.

One critical observation - the rear mounted switch is not in our favourite position for an emergency stop situation! From a practical position we prefer the on/off switch to instantly accessible.

The "Saphir" is powered by a lightweight Lithium-ion batteries - it is supplied with two for continuous clipping. 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) offer many advantages over earlier batteries. A 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

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 fit attachment combs, due to the increasing thickness (size) of the bottom plate (comb blade). Combs will not fit the "detachable" wide blades. The purpose of using an attachment combs is to leave a greater length of un-cut hair than the blade selected would normally leave. They are used mainly by dog groomers and pet owners. It is important to remember however that if you use an attachment comb you must be very thorough in the grooming the coat before clipping. There MUST NOT be any tangles or knots - otherwise the comb may come off the blade, refuse 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 - even down to three compartments to store your blades! Few manufactures provide such refreshing attention to detail! A nice aspect 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!

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

On the subject of blades, Heiniger do not make A5 type detachable blades and whilst not confirmed we suspect due to the close collaboration between Heiniger and Aesculap they are in fact Aesculap made blades. Certainly apart from the name “Heiniger” over stamped on the blade, the appearance is identical

VERY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED


+ 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 not accessible in an emergency.

GENERAL PRODUCT INFORMATION.
Identical in many ways to the original "Blue" Saphir now widely used by the veterinary profession, this stylish "purple" patterned version was introduced to fulfil popular demand from many within the professional dog and small animal pet grooming circles

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

In over four 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 whether in surgery or in the field 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.

PROFESSIONAL DOG GROOMERS
In many respects the same clipper credential are essential for the professional dog groomer - a dog grooming business is dependent on its equipment being reliable as well as suitable. Whilst cordless clipper are not always the preferred choice amongst professional dog groomers with the vast majority selecting the corded models, the "Saphir" was quickly seen as a serious contender with the many mobile groomers as well as domestic pet owners fed up with the cheap fixed blade machine which so often proved useless. Despite the greater cost involved of a cordless machine for many pet owner's the advantages outweigh the extra amount.in price..

Professional dog Groomers will be pleased to read that as with other 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.

EQUINE OWNERS.
The "Saphir" has obvious attractions for the owners of nervous horses, and whilst it does have a suitability for specific tasks, (best performed if the machine is fitted with a correctly selected blade for the task) In our opinion the motor power of the "Saphir" whilst totally adequate for use with all types of small animal clipping such as professional cat and dog grooming, and pet grooming we do have reservations about its use when applied to full body clipping of either horses or cattle. even when fitted with either of the Moser wide blades, which are probably for most horses the most suitable..

With so many variations in the coat textures of horses - especially cobs and native breeds, we would suggest for the job of "full-body clipping" in case where the animal is known to be nervous, preferring a machine with a more powerful motor such as the Aesculap Fav5 CL

Animals which DO NOT display these temperaments should be clipped with a traditional sized machine and blades.

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 too 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. The operating feel of the "Saphir" is robust powerful and professional - it offers a confident clip. One critical observation - the rear mounted on/off switch is not in our opinion well position for an emergency stop! We would have preferred the switch to be more accessible to the thumb by positioning it higher up on the upper body casing

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. Battery storage when not in use for prolonged periods is important and it is recommended you read your manual

Astute observers will note that the batteries of both the Saphir product code C0117 (blue casing) and the "Saphir STYLE" product code C0115 (purple patterned casing) appear to be identical other than the battery cap colour. This assumption is correct - both batteries are identical in power output and can be interchanged for use on either machine according to the Heiniger factory.

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.

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.

Most standard type attachment combs can be fitted to blades from blades size #50 to size #8.5.

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!

PEASRIDGE CONCLUSION!
The Heiniger original blue/black "Saphir" has been eagerly welcomed by many veterinary practices as well as professional groomers. We are confident the Heiniger "Stylish Saphir" will equally prove a sound investment for all users!
