Powerful cordless clipper that can cope with all the tough jobs for horses and is great for cattle for market/show clipping.
The handle is nice and slim and the main grip point at 15.2 cm (where the thumb and first finger sit).
The main part of the handle is 17 cm around. The clipper is 29 cm long not including blades.
The Xplorer is very quiet in keeping with all Heiniger clippers. Because it is a battery powered model it does not have the need for any ventilation - this is great as it stops all the hair and dirt getting inside.
This are Li-ion combined with an intelligent charger. This charger can show the approximate state of charge so you can have an idea of what is left in the battery. The fast recharge time of 90 minutes is great so with a second battery you could continuously clip.
Spare Heiniger Xplorer batteries are here
Heiniger Xplorer clipper, battery, battery charger, oil, screw driver, instructions PLUS:
1 set of blades.
It is always good to have 2 sets of blades, in case one goes blunt mid clip or one set needs to be sent off for sharpening, so please consider adding a second set.
If your horse has feathers, it may be worth getting a Coarse blade for the legs, and a Medium blade for the body.
Please select your blades from the drop down menu.
WE SAY :
A very nice clipper to hold and with the build quality you expect from Heiniger. The decent battery duration and fast recharge time makes this clipper a real possibility for busy yards.
Down side is that the clipper is fairly long so on small ponies you could find it a little awkward.
