Use with our large blade sets.
- 110 volt.
- Quieter. Less motor "whine", kind to your ears and less likely to upset animals.
- Permanent rare-earth magnet motor enable more torque (power) and require less space and weight than ordinary motors. Less heat is produced by the permanent magnet motor and the fan forces air forward through our heads—so the heads run 20° F cooler.
- Up to 20% shorter in length than other motors.
- Weighs up to 15% less than other motors.
- Smaller grip than other motors.
- Sleek, low-profile ribs makes it easier to grip the tension knob.
- Shorter tension bolt equals fewer turns needed to reset tension, so you spend less time changing and tensioning blades.
- Internal roller bearings instead of bushings (less heat, less wear and greater longevity).
- Stainless steel inserts that are riveted in reduce the possibility of the inserts becoming loose.
- Round steel drive in place of a plastic bushing makes fitting the top blade easier.
- Includes 2 screws for attaching to motor.
- Motor has a 16 ft electrical cord.
- Only 3 minutes to change a clipper head to shear head.
- Will drive Premier and Lister® clipper blades.
Preparing the Animal for Clipping
- Remove the dirt from the hair first. If this is not done, expect accelerated blade wear and a reduction in animals clipped between blade sharpenings in exact proportion to the amount of dirt present. The benefits of dirt removal prior to clipping cannot be over-emphasized. Example: Those who wash their lambs prior to clipping often clip 20–30 club lambs between sharpenings (if the blades have been sharpened properly on a lapping machine). Those who don’t and have lambs with sand and soil in the wool often clip less than two lambs between sharpenings.
- Washing the animal with soap and water removes the most dirt. If this is not practical, use a high power vacuum or blower to remove as much dirt as possible from the hair or wool.
- Restrain the animal. Few animals like the sound of a clipper or the feel of vibration on their skin. When they react to either without warning, accidents can and will happen. Therefore, for the sake of you, your animal and your clipper, restrain the animal properly prior to clipping.
Failure to oil as often as recommended may lead to excess heat and premature wear and tear.
Warning: Unlike some other clipper motors, this motor will neither slow down nor sound different when oil is needed. But failure to oil will quickly cause damage to the blades and drive head. So you MUST apply oil by time instead of sound. Apply a small amount of oil every 3 minutes to the tips of the teeth and each side of the blade by dipping them into a dish of oil or pouring oil directly onto the teeth with a small oil container and every 10 minutes drip oil into the small hole behind the tension knob assembly. Excessive wear can occur if not oiled properly!
Warning: Risk of electrical shock—Connect only to a branch circuit protected by a ground-fault circuit-interrupter (GFCI). Contact a qualified electrician if you cannot verify that the circuit is protected by a GFCI.

I was researching between these and Lister Star. Both are quality brands. I chose these because of the three year warranty. They are light and small enough for our daughter to use for sheering her shownlambs. We are very pleased with them and how well they worked yesterday. Glad I decided on these.

Just got the clippers that I ordered today. Went right to the barn to 'de-hair' the Mule. 'Ace is 23 & his hair has killed 5 Oster clippers over the years. Granted, not all those clippers were brand new when we got them. Mules have a long coat with an soft undercoat; We have clipped this mule since he was two years old. He never sheds out like the horses; mule self preservation - he thinks the ice age is coming. The Premier 1 clippers handled everything - long hair, soft fuzzy hair, face, mane & tail. Light & balanced in the hand & vibration didn't bother the mule, even next to his ears. The blades got their oil but 3 minutes goes by fast when you're getting a great body clip. Ace has his clock too & I got him done before it ran out.

Just love these clippers! I have never used clippers and was unsure of the blades that I would need for the job but after the wonderful assistance that Premier1 provided I felt confident about what I was purchasing and excited to give them a try. These clippers made the chore easy and fun. The lambs that I practiced on were not so happy about being bathed, but calmed right down as soon as I started using the clippers(I almost think they enjoyed it).
I wish I had bought these years ago. So much lighter and easier to use. You must keep them oiled but thats fine with me. I trace clip my horses and put fun designs on them in the winter and these are perfect. They are not quiet, but really, they not any louder than my blue ones were, but these run better and are half the weight.

Super easy to use, light weight, I love them! Super loud, we wore an ear plug in the ear closest to the clipper, but we'll probably get used to it.
