GENERAL PRODUCT INFORMATION:
Made by Moser of Germany, this is a remarkable innovative and brilliantly designed cordless trimmer that will amaze the user. It more than fulfils the concept of German quality both in design and engineering! Although now over a decade or more in production, it still remains one of the best of its type. The “Arco” offers continuous clipping from two interchangeable batteries each providing a clip time on average of 80 minutes. Re-charge time is achieved comfortably within 90 minutes.
Ni-MH interchangeable batteries provide a clip time on average of 80 minutes when clipping animals (100 minutes on human hair.). Purchasers should familiarise themselves with the recommended battery storage procedures as set out in the manufacturer’s instructions The battery packs when purchased may contain a small amount of charge, they should be charged the first time the appliance is used for a full 90 minutes. Below the on/off switch on the trimmer is a small red LED and if this indicates RED when in operation it is indicating about 15% of power/charge is left in the battery. Once the battery is fully charge the LED charging indicator on the charger unit will start flashing.
Contrary to what you may be often told Moser “Arco” blades are capable of being re-sharpened several times.
The unique and innovative blade design offers five cutting positions to select from. (0.1mm to 3mm) Further cutting depths can be obtained by using the attachment combs supplied. This feature enables the “Arco” to perform in many clipping circles.
With a remarkably low noise factor, minimal vibration, and no cables this is a superb and normally very successful trimmer on any nervous horse. It meets all the requirements of 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. Whilst many horses happily tolerate body clipping there are those who are un-happy to have their heads/faces clipped with a traditional sized machine. The “Arco” is ideal for both facial work and with the blade suitability adjusted it is exceptional for clipping coarse leg feathers as many horse owners have found!
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..
The “Arco” with its many attractive features relating to both the machine and blade offers a number of applications for exhibition cattle whether beef or dairy. It is especially suitable for facial grooming, last minute show clipping, dairy udder and dairy “top line” work.
DOG & CAT OWNERS
As a cordless machine it offers considerable potential to the domestic cat or dog owner wanting to clip their pet for breed style clipping or general husbandry clipping. The features as listed are very much applicable for long haired cat breeds especially where you are involved in cutting out Matts when the adjustability of the blade will be a valuable advantage.
DOMESTIC RABBIT OWNERS
For owners of pet rabbits a cordless machine offers considerable advantages whether you are involved with body clipping or general husbandry clipping. The five point adjustment of the blade offers flexibility to perform a range of tasks
A popular choice with many veterinary practises whether specialising in large or small animals – or both! Principle requirements for most practises are clipper reliability, good battery clip time and fast recharge, as well as blade flexibility suitable for day to day surgery use – the “Arco” meets all requirements.
The adjustable blade set in the 0.03mm position offer a surgical close clip for surgical and injection purposes.
