GENERAL PRODUCT INFORMATION
The Moser KM5 clipper – introduced to the UK market in 2014 is German designed professional two-speed machine – a successor of the Moser Max 45 and the earlier Moser KM1 which was one of the most advanced small animal clippers of its day, and one of the first small animal machines used for clipping nervous horses and small studs of alpaca's.
The body designed includes professional ergonomics, creating a lightweight machine weighing between 360/400g allowing for various makes of blades. This comfortable weight distribution and slim styling with a 135mm circumference and a slip resistant grip result in a more secure hold and improved handling.o Rounded casting at the front of the clipper we are told facilitates optimum hair flow and enhanced cutting speed.
The Moser KM5 clipper has all the superior qualities associated with a German designed product. Equipped with a professional and cool running DC motor that offers the user two individual speed options – 3000 and 3500 rpm – it generates a powerful clipping speed in either option for the professional groomer. With minimal vibration (2.5m/s2) and an ultra-quiet noise level of just 63 decibels the running tone is smooth and low level at both speeds
Supplied with 3.8mm #7F Wahl “Competition Series” blade the Moser KM5 also offers you the ability to use any of your existing detachable “Snap-On” style blades. Detachable blades are easily cleaned and align automatically with no tensioning required. This type of blade should be put on the machine with the motor running, and when cleaning it is un-necessary and unadvisable to undo the two blade screws
In keeping with most clippers a small element of routine maintenance is required to maintain the clipper in peak performance. Drive tips do wear with constant use and clipper performance may become affected as a result – therefore routine checking of the tip for wear. If found subsequent replacement is recommended.
