Solid and reliable. Been subject to upgrades. In its day a good solid machine. Proven and well tested by many over the years.
Basically this is the Liscop 3000 horse/cattle clipper with a sheep head fitted and known as the Liscop “Profi” shearing machine. Bearing in mind the age of this machine which from a design aspect goes back to the last century its appearance against the raft of modern machine appearing since the year 2000 is definitely “dated!” However that said it has stood the test of time and is well proven certainly in the shearing arena with many small flock owners and sheep farmers.
At 2200 double cutting strokes per minute and even fitted with a new 20 blade fan the motor is still too noisy for many horses. A reduction in the weight of around 15% helped to reduce what was a heavy appliance of the “old school” type machines. Fitted with an aluminium head housing, this clipper has a unique dual purpose ventilating system, which effectively cools the motor, gearbox as well as blades (or cutters and comb). The air filter is the slide out type, offering easy cleaning with no tools being required. One point to bear in mind – the on/off switch is located on the side at the rear and is therefore not readily accessible in relation to operator’s safety in an emergency situation especially where unpredictable animals are involved.
