The Lister Surgical (A2S/AC) clipper blade for horses and cattle leaves a very tight finish, only leaving 1mm of hair on the horse. This blade should be used prior to a surgical operation or by professionals for sports/polo horses. Use the Lister Surgical blade with extreme care.
These blades will fit the Lister, Star, Neon, Laser , Legend, stablemate, Showman and Liberty.
‘A’ Series Lister Clipping Blades
Blades for clipping horses, cattle, and slick sheep shearing.
Will fit the Laser 2, Legend, Star, and Liberty.
If hairs get trapped between the blades they will not cut effectively. To overcome this problem the patented AC cutters (which are used in conjunction with the blade) have been designed with a small gap between each tooth. This allows hair to be swept into the spaces between the cutter teeth, enabling the blades to clip at all times.
The steel used in the blades is a specialist grade to ensure they keep their edge when working in the most demanding conditions. The blades undergo computer controlled heat treatment to ensure the steel is hardwearing and durable.
The backs of our clipping combs are ribbed to create several benefits. Most importantly, the comb is lighter and stiffer font to heel, and yet more flexible side-to-side. This gives a better cutting action and enables the blades to be easily sharpened. The ribbed back also makes clipping easier by helping to guide the comb over the animal.
The driving socket on a clipper cutter can either be plastic or metal. A plastic socket helps the clipper to run quieter and smoother, but is not as strong as a metal socket. A metal socket in contrast is slightly nosier but stronger than a plastic socket, making it better suited to high-load applications such as for clipping dirty cattle.
