Our top tips:
This is a great clipper if you have a nervous horse as you are removingthe RISK elementof having a trailing cable. It also means you yourself are able to move around the horse with more ease due to the lack of cable.
It is also a low noise clipper which again helps for nervous horses. There have been many instances where customer feedback has shown horses previously needing sedation, were able to move to sedative-free clipping with their Heiniger Xplorer clippers (please note this must be done with care, with time taken to desensitise the horse prior to use. We do not claim it will be successful in every case).
We suggest you always have a spare pair of blades for an instance where one set becomes blunt
Re-oil the blades regularly, always brush them clean of hair first
Blades, with use, will require resharpening
Regularly check the blade temperature to ensure they are overly warm against the horse's skin
