PROS: Replacement for the “Showman” which was over many years not only unique but well tested and proven. Kept similar shape and concept with added technological improvements. Unique in its concept of battery clip time
CONS: Noise level unacceptable for nervous animals.. Excessive recharge time. Battery not as reliable as the “Showman” battery judging by failures. Handpiece rather “chunky!”
An attractive well-engineered compact battery powered horse or cattle clipper, which is bound to have a lot of appeal for those who prefer not to have trailing cables.
There are three “pack” versions of the Liberty available – the “Popular Pack” comprises of the clipper with battery and charger – as listed above. The alternative choices – the Liberty Yard pack, is supplied with the clipper, the battery pack with charger and a mains cord adapter which gives you the option of using the machine plugged into the main power supply, all presented in a well designed hard carry case. The “Field” pack consists of the clipper handpiece, blades, powerpack battery unit, battery re-charger, 12v battery leads, power pack nylon belt, a 60m bottle of Lister oil, 3 sachets of R2 Lister grease, cleaning brush, screw driver, instruction manual, – all presented in a durable hard carry case which is very well designed.
The clipper is refreshing lightweight, but unfortunately in keeping with so many Lister machines rather noisy, which may make it not so popular with owners of nervous animals. This is a great shame as they are often the very customers for such a battery-operated clipper. On/off switch well positioned for quick reaction use in an emergency.
10×1.2v nickel metal hydride cells give the battery a clip time of up to 2.5 hours on average. However the published normal recharge time is between 11 and 13hours. (Bit of an “over night” job!) The ultra light battery pack is supplied with a charger lead and plug. Initally when new the battery may not reach full capacity until discharged and re-charged three times. The charger can be fitted with interchangeable plugs for different overseas countries. As an optional extra, 12v battery leads can be obtained offering operators the choice to run the clipper off a standard vehicle battery.
Whilst you cannot fit a sheep head on this machine, for those with a few sheep wishing to dag or even do the odd full shear then try fitting the Wizard sheep blade. Likewise with a few dirty cattle to clean up for shedding or slaughter the cattle wizard blade will suit perfectly. Should prove extremely popular with dairy farmers due to the total safety factor when used in milking parlours. The machine has good manoeuvrability.
PLEASE NOTE – Battery storage
Customers are advised to adopt the following procedures when storing a Lister “Liberty” battery power pack when it is not envisaged the unit will be used. In the event of storage Power packs (battery units) should be discharged to within a total capacity but NOT completely – some remaining charge MUST be left. During storage – at period not in excess of 6/8 week of storage Power packs (battery units) should be fully recharged. Failure to do this can result in the Power packs (battery units) acquiring a “memory” and thereby limiting recharging fully.
