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.
- 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 degrees 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).
- No more black plastic sides (these were prone to falling off and frustrating users).
- Only 3 minutes to change a shear head to clipper head.
- Motor has a 16 ft electrical cord.
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.

Amazing! I am new to sheep (Suffolks and Dorsets) and I purchased used shears from a local person. They would get hot and were very heavy. It was frustrating and when I went to a breeder's house she showed me her Premier shears and swore by them. She said don't let the price scare you they are with every penny. I agree!!! I received my Premier shears yesterday and went to it today. My ram looks amazing! They were light, ready to use, came with a great guide for beginners with all the FAQs that newbies have. They made shearing much more enjoyable and I look forward to showing this year! Thank you for this great product and all of your efforts in making it much easier to get involved wih sheep!

Worked perfect right out of the case. Used on my granddaughters 4 H lamb. Easy to handle and clean. It works perfect for someone just learning, light weight and the smaller hand grip helps.

I own alpacas and have some rescue alpaca's as well. Can't afford to have a shearing gal come out so I purchased the Premier 4000s package, plus a spacer. Works outstanding! Light weight, and quiet. I had used a 20T comb, but I would recommend the 13T. It cuts cleaner and faster. The 'pacas don't look as clean, but the savings paid for the clippers.

A great machine for somebody that can't afford a professional drop-down machine & hand piece. I am a hobby-flock shearer, and these shears do awesome. I started out using the Spirit comb because of my lack of experience. They bound up a little in more matted wool. Now that I have more experience, I have switched to the Apache comb and now nothing seems to stops these shears.
Don't be fooled by reviews that say they won't push through matted wool or fecal tags. If you don't adjust the tension properly or have the wrong blades, you'll have problems. Tensioning issues have nothing do with the shears, but with the operator... it takes some practice to get it down, and it is the same on all forked shears.

Even here in europe I must say it´s worth to invest in the transformer to use this machine!
Quiet, fast and light weighted.. I love her.
I am shearing alpacas and lamas.
The combs and cutters are best quality and good in price!
