Comment: HIGHLY RECOMMENDED
A highly impressive clipper of exceptional quality combined with outstanding design and engineering skills. Both the previous FAV5’s models (mains and cordless) proved themselves in many clipping fields! The “Hybrid” makes this top quality clipper a more affordable purchase!
The “Hybrid” is basically an Aesculap FAV5 mains clipper with the ability to be transformed into a cordless machine. To do this you would have to purchase battery packs and the charger unit. The cord pack is removed and replaced with a battery inserted in the rear of the handpiece in the same way as you insert or remove the cord pack. This then allows the option of use in either mode. Purchase of a second battery would offer continuous clipping.
For the customer seeking traditional German high quality in both design and engineering the “Hybrid” offers the opportunity to acquire one of the most outstanding professional clippers seen on the market in recent years. It can be used with all your existing A5 detachable blades irrespective of the make, and is marketed at a more affordable price than either the Fav5 CL GT306 cordless or Fav5 GT105 mains corded machines.
Of special value to professional dog groomers as well as all small animal owners (especially cat owners) is the smooth and unmistakable “Aesculap” motor tone! Many animals, not necessarily those of a nervous nature have an aversion to a number of animal clippers, whilst some – especially cats – do not appreciate being clipped. Aesculap clippers have always been noted for motors that emitted smoother and lower tones than many other similar machines which makes them highly suited to all animals of a nervous temperament. The “Hybrid” not only inherits the quieter motor tone but enjoys the added feature of blade vibration eradicated – a feature of many Aesculap models both large and small.
The “Hybrid” GT308 in “corded” mode has a slightly higher cutting stroke frequency 2500/min. However when converted to the battery mode, the cutting stroke rate is marginally reduced to 2300/min without any noticeable loss of power. Otherwise apart from the mode of operation it is virtually identical to the cordless model having the same slim shaped handpiece, and compact length. Like both the mains and cordless Fav5 it has the same generous sized blade release button, not the “mean” type supplied by many manufacturers. A clever bit of typically German design and engineering holds the blade release clip open whilst you refit the blade!
Whether you are a busy groomer or an individual cat or dog owner clipping for routine husbandry or sanitary purposes, the Aesculap range and other makes of detachable A5 type blades offer you a huge choice to select from whatever the task confronting you maybe.
