BREAKING NEWS OF THE DAY!
the USA - the clipper manufacturer Kim Laube launches a new
light duty "MINI" horse clipper known as the "LAUBE
573 Mini Lasor Shear"
just over 7 inches and weighing less than half a kilo this light
duty full body horse clipper is available in two speed mains or
vari-speed mode (A cordless version is expected later this year.)
with "detachable snap on blades" - this does away with
all the tiresome tensioning associated with clippers fitted with
traditional type blades. The Laube 573 Mini Lasor Shear clipper
is ultra light, with an attractive slim hand piece, which is comfortable
to handle, it affords effortless clipping over prolonged periods.
Equipped with a two-speed function it has a higher cutting stroke
ratio compared to the "vari speed model" and as such should
be the better machine for horse clipping.
12-volt system is a positive plus for work in stables. A feature
of these machines is the constant cool running ability even under
prolonged use. The noise level, which is achieved when the machine
is used at the lower speed, is ideal for any nervous animals.
with carry case, transformer, size#10 blade, spare drive levers,
(2) grease and instructions this all comes ready to use at an attractive
retail price of £199.95 including vat and carriage.
from the USA - working in conjunction with the German company
HAUPTNER - manufacturers of the top selling HAUPTNER 2000 horse
clipper - comes the exciting new " PREMIER 3000 DOMINANCE"
a clipper designed for horse and cattle clipping
resembling the outstanding HAUPTNER 2000 - a heavy duty clipper
(GOLD STAR RATING
V. H. RECOMMENDED - BEST OVERALL MACHINE! (See PEASRIDGE clipper
PREMIER 3000c "Dominance" Clipper is however
15% lighter in total weight
15% smaller in the hand piece grip
Has more efficient power under load
Is cooler running during operational use
Accepts Lister blades as well as its own blades - making blade costs
jointly between Premier (clipper head and blades) and Hauptner (clipper
body and motor) this machine holds the promise of both excellence
and perfection for all who clip!
from the attractions of a really slim line hand piece other major
features of these machines including the cool running and a more
efficient permanent magnet motor power are that the air from the
clipper exits via the head as opposed to the bottom of the motor.
Tests suggest this lowers both head and blade temperatures by 10
degrees - an important benefit! Running noise level are much lower
than the average clipper which makes this machine valuable in cases
of nervous animals.
Premier Dominance clipper drives its own superior quality standard,
fine, and coarse blades as well as normal Lister UK blades. The
ability to accept Lister blades offers the consumer a very considerable
saving in blade cost!
is especially valuable as Peasridge is supplying the clipper this
autumn as a promotional launch with TWO standard blades! A consumer
saving of some £40.00 against a Standard Hauptner blade!

a sheep head can be fitted with ease, and will accept European cutters

price of £259.95 including vat and carriage.

- Europe's largest and most informed web site for animal clippers
has recently introduced an number of new features aimed at helping
consumers get the best machine for their individual purposes.
include a "BUYER'S GUIDE", which is designed to enlighten
and inform the buyer towards making the right purchase for his or
her individual needs. Each of the clipper pages of the web site
have been redesigned and are highly informative with both technical
and basic information. Each page has a direct web link to the technical
pages of "CLIPPER ADVICE" which contains a wealth of advice
and information on getting the best performance from the machine
as well as identification diagrams and spare parts list. Valuable
information and high quality images of blades is an added and important
NEW "STAR RATING" system (the first ever!) has been introduced
for all listed clippers, (which includes virtually all the animal
clippers, manufactured world-wide.) The object of the "star
rating" system is to provide a reasonable "bench mark"
and a degree of confidence for those contemplating the purchase
of a new machine."
assess all current makes of clippers/trimmers on a criteria which
includes factors such as weight, length, handling ability, blade
range, value for money - against similar machines, and design, engineering
and reliability. Clippers can achieve up to 100 points maximum.
Machines not listed are due to the manufacturer not supplying a
current model for trial and assessment.
the results are solely the conclusions of PEASRIDGE, they are based
upon a wealth of practical experience, and consumer feedback from
the company's very large annual clipper sales worldwide. PEASRIDGE
does whenever possible (and subject to manufacturers providing machines
for the purpose,) try to make certain that each machine is tested
in "field" conditions, using professional operators.
factors such as weight, length, noise, practical handling, safety
and an "overview" of the history of any defects/faults
are critically considered. (NB. The "weight" includes
a clipper fitted with blades and battery pack if applicable.)
levels - a highly important feature when clipping any animal, but
especially horses - are measured over a 6-point "sound to the
ear" factor in normal surrounding, as might be experience in
ordinary operational use. When measuring "sound" the blades
will have been correctly tensioned, suitably oiled and operated
over a period of several minutes. Testing is within a building,
not in an open-air situation.

is then awarded a "star" rating: With ratings above 85
points a "RECOMMEND" award is given. 91 and above carries
the HIGHLY RECOMMENDED" award, and those clipper which accumulate
96 points and above, receive the VERY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED award and
a "GOLD Star rating.

or decreased according to the review assessment.
