Premier 4000s Shearing Machine
Has a high torque, rare-earth, permanent magnet 110 volt motor that glides through dense wool and hair.
Only the most-experienced shearers can push it fast enough to cause it to lose cutter speed.
Premier 4000s Packages include:
- Premier 4000s Shear
- Spirit or Phantom R Comb
- 4 point Spitfire Cutter
- 4 oz bottle of oil
- Instruction manual
- Easier to handle
- Blocking show sheep
- Shearing smaller flocks
- Shearing fiber goats
- Peeling and blocking beef & dairy cattle
- Shearing alpacas and llamas
Use with our combs and cutters.
- 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 head design (sharp visual look that catches your eye and impresses observers)
- Internal roller bearings instead of bushings (less heat, less wear and greater longevity)
- Suspended fork system (reduces risk of stripping the gear drive or breaking comb teeth)
- No cutter retainer or retaining spring (both caused hassles and broke too readily)
- Improved tensioning concept (spring clip is more effective at retaining tension than cupped washers)
- Only 3 minutes to change a shear head to clipper head
- Motor has a 16 ft electrical cord
- 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.

Nice little machine; works great and it’s lightweight.

First time I have used it and works great. Used on an older alpaca that was missed during regular shearing.

These clippers are quality. Yes, it is hard to teach yourself how to shear a sheep. However, Premier provides so much information online that honestly, we felt prepared! Yes, it is hard to get the blades set perfectly at first, and kind of terrifying how sharp they are. It is also just hard to DO at first, but like anything else, the more you do it, the easier it becomes. Customer service has been so helpful, and being able to send the combs and blades back for sharpening is inexpensive and excellent. We also got a pair of the hand shears, and it is super helpful to have them. Premier is great at supporting their products. Absolutely no complaints.

We only have 2 sheep to shear, it’s kind of a pain to oil every 3 minutes and they did get hot, but they got the job done and were VERY sharp.
Cory V from New York
They sent me the wrong one, which was inconvenient since I had to sheer on a specific day.
