PROS: Designed and made in Germany by one of the heading manufactures. Based on a long pedigree of innovative tried and tested machines renowned for their perfection and long levity .
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. 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, 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 is really very easy!
Spare parts are readily available – even for long discontinued models! 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, Liscop and Stewart Oster blade ranges.) making this machine capable of virtually any clipping task required.
