German Made! Exceptionally quiet. Ideal for both specialist professional work as well as domestic pet use. Very impressive!!
Seen as a simple “trimmer” the price might seems expensive! However when viewed as the quietest made trimmer on the market, of German designed and engineering, comparing to no other clipper or trimmer is in a league of its own! On that basis it seems to us a fair price for a specialist machine of quality!
The “Exacta” is the most impressively low noise level machine as yet to come on the market. Coupled with the lack of vibration and a specialised narrow blade (24mm) it is without doubt the perfect choice for long haired cat or rabbit owners attempting to deal with those never ending problem of matts! In addition it will prove ideal for owners of smaller domestic pets such as rabbits, ferrets, rats or mice. Whilst marketed as a “face, feet and pads trimmer” and aimed at the dog groomers market, we visualise it being of valuable use to a much wider market particularly on many of the nervous animals for a wide range of tasks. An attractively marked body casing decorated with “paw” prints on a white polished background – the combination of colour and shape is immediately eye catching. The compact (under 6 inches in length) tapered slim ergonomically curved body allows easy use of the trimmer in those more confined area and offer fatigue free handling during use.
Powered by a powerful motor this almost silent professional cordless trimmer offers an average of 40 minutes of operating time on a single charge. The re charge period is approx. 60 minutes. To maintain battery peak performance it is recommended that the battery should be drained periodically. A “close” 1.5mm blade is supplied with the trimmer and replacing the blade head is both quick and simple. (Do ensure you replace the Allen key in the slot provided in the base of the charger unit. Lose it and you will have problems!)
As in all clipping tasks – common sense and experience suggests the wisdom of always having a “second” blade available. Blades – no matter the quality, the make, or price, CAN and DO at some point go blunt! Re-sharpening is not a matter of “pop along to Boots and collect later that day!” Generally you have to post to a Sharpening Centre and allow up to 7 days for its return.
The trimmer is powered by the NiMH type modern rechargeable battery. To maintain a fully charged capacity it is recommended you periodically drain the battery power and re-charge. Please read the manual – it covers this and other matters one should be aware of before .. Not after use!
On the Charger station a LED light indicates the charging status. (On the underside is the Allen key for blade removal.) Dependant on the degree of use in keeping with all trimmers that are powered by batteries, you will need to periodically to replace the battery. This should be done by an Authorised Service Centre. Parts including batteries are available – see our CLIPPER PARTS SECTION
The trimmer is also supplied with a small “slide on” attachment comb. This comb is of an unusual and innovative design in that it allows the same comb to be adjusted to a number of varying cutting depths. The comb is of a robust construction, not the normal cheaply made comb so often supplied with trimmers. The individual teeth are smoothly rounded for entry into tender areas. This very much represents the quality and practical thought one get when you purchase an Aesculap product!
