- 110 volt
- Quieter. Less motor "whine", kind to your ears and less likely to upset animals.
- 2700 strokes per minute cutting speed
- 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
- Designed and assembled in USA from domestic and foreign parts
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 have sheared sheep with an Oster Clipmaster and with an Andis 5-speed. I was so impressed how this clipper and blade left no track lines and sheared right to a ready-to-show length for show lambs. It was quicker and smoother. Not really quieter though. I would highly recommend these clippers to anyone sheering club or show lambs. Keep cool lube and oil around and use one or the other every 3 min or so.

This is our second set of these clippers, other ones still work great but we wanted one for each person! We use them to fit our show sheep, and goats. They do the job quickly without overheating and the finished work looks very smooth! Have also used competitors units, but they can’t compare to the Premier 4000c. In addition, the knowledge and help that Premier can offer on their equipment is unprecedented.

I still use my Oster clippers (model 078150) but appreciate the smaller Premier 1 4000c clippers as they’re lighter and more maneuverable, and cause less hand fatigue. The 4000c with the “fine blade” set has no problem going through a really dense Pygora fleece. The blades are secured and tensioned in a unique way that’s easy to use. For an additional $56, the “Clipper Package” was a good value as the blades (which are NOT interchangeable with other brand clippers), oil and case would have been $90 if purchased separately. The sturdy locking case has foam padding inside, a metal body, and reinforced edges and corners.
