Copy of the Mk I with upgrades to modernize. The earlier Mk I was very well engineered and in its day both proven and tested over the years.
The earlier Mk I version was a well-engineered powerful machine, which despite its noise level, weight and bulky handling had a good history of reliable performance, and was very well engineered. Having been around a good few years it had stood the test of time. Whilst not wishing to be critical of Lister designers one cannot help feeling that at a time when manufacturers are seeking to reduce the size, weight and noise levels of both livestock clippers and shearing machines a number of important design and “user friendly” points were missed. Certainly we would be of the opinion this is not a machine that will attract many lady flock or alpaca owners.
The Laser Mk II copies many features from the earlier Mk I model and to date one sees few back for repairs. The powerful motor produces an ultra-efficient heavy-duty machine, which will afford the operator many hours of reliable shearing and is said to be cool running even in prolonged situations. The Lister cutter and comb range offers a good selection of blades for most farm requirements. Features such as easy maintenance, 5 meters of hard-wearing two core rubber sheathed cable, double insulation and a built in thermal over load – all of which gives added safety and peace of mind. The on/off switch is centrally positioned for easy use in the event of an emergency.
Those in more remote farming areas will be interested to note a 12v version shearing model is available.
