Made in the USA – As a clipper intended for large animals one’s first impressions suggest a really nice lightweight and compact machine of the perfect length, certainly for use with both cattle and horses, coupled with what appears as an excellent wide blade range. The ergonomically slim handpiece of this very professional two speed clipper with its curved head could have several uses with both exhibition cattle and possible full bodied horse clipping fitted with a suitable blade.
Excellent design features incorporating a very attractive slim and compact handpiece with a unique curved clipping head as seen only on one previous make. This style of head allows for a greatly improved clipping access in those more difficult areas of the animal. Blade attachment is crisp and positive with the blade release lever accessible and easy to operate. The fact that the blades require no pre tensioning will bring great “relief” too many equine users.
Our practical tests suggested the 2-speed rotary motor runs cooler and delivers a powerful cutting performance, with the ability to be set to run at one of two clipping speeds, and when in use has an acceptable noise level at both speeds, although obviously quieter on the slower speed. There is a suggestion of vibration at both speed levels, which for some potential users may probably exclude this machine from use on animals of a highly nervous temperament. Certainly when clipping areas such as the face it would be better to use a smaller trimmer rather than the “Showedge” even with a narrow blade. Frankly much will depend upon the animal’s temperament!
