GENERAL PRODUCT INFORMATION:
The Moser “Adelar” is intended as a horse trimmer and is basically a clone of the Moser “Arco” of which it is virtually identical other than three principle differences.
1. The clip time is stated as 60 minutes per battery unit (x 2) as opposed to the “Arco” which is stated as 80 minutes per battery. (As the batteries of each appear identical we are uncertain as to how this extra 20 minutes is achieved!)
2. The “Adelar” was originally supplied in the tradition “Horseline” plastic carry case but is now supplied in a smaller and lesser quality black carry case.
3. The four attachment combs supplied with the “Arco” are not included.(Presumably now accepteds as un-necessary for horses.)
As with the “Arco” the “Adelar” is a innovative and well-designed slim exceptional cordless mode trimmer that more than fulfils the concept of German quality both in design and engineering! The “Arco” now over a decade or more in production, still remains one of the most remarkable trimmers of the age. The “Adelar” is promoted as the horse trimmer and the “Arco” as a dog/pet trimmer, (althought the “Arco” has been used for horses ever since it launch.) Like the “Arco” the “Adelar” can also be used with equal success for a wide range of task involving Cattle, dogs, cats, rabbits and other small domestic pets as well as being popular with many vets
With a remarkably low noise factor, minimal vibration, and no cables this is a superb hightly successful trimmer for use on any nervous type horses. It meets all the requirements of most owner’s needs whether seeking a good quality “companion” trimmer to compliment a traditional full body machine, or a machine suitable to get young or really nervous horse used to clipping. The “Adelar” offers continuous clipping from two interchangeable battery units each providing a clip time on average of 60 minutes. Re-charge time is achieved comfortably within 90 minutes. Batteries are of the Ni-MH type and if storage is likely for any lengthy non active periods it is recommended purchasers familiarise themselves with the recommended battery storage instructions.
The angled clipping head is fitted with a “snap on” type blade offering the choice of five cutting positions. This innovative feature allows you to select a depth of cut or hair length ranging from 0.1mm to 3mm in five separate positions (Cheaper competitors invariably offer only three positions.) As many have discovered five selectable blade cutting positions offers a greater flexibility especially for the various tasks that the “Adelar” can be used for. Greater cutting depths could be obtained by using attachment combs which can be purchased as optional extras.
Contrary to what you may be often told Moser “Arco” and “Adelar” blades are capable of being re-sharpened several times..
