NEW Lister Lithium Cordless Horse Clipper and Lister Libretto Max Lithium Horse Trimmer Deluxe Combo Deal
New Lister Liberty Lithium Details:
The Lister Liberty horse clipper has long been the most popular Lister clipper. It is a medium powered horse clipper, great for professionals and happy hackers and can handle all horse hair. It is comfortable to hold and has low vibrations. The handpiece measures 21 cm from the tip of the blades to the base of the clipper and the grip point circumference is 16 cm. It weighs 0.89 kg without blades. The Liberty is a medium duty clipper and is easy to tension and easy to clip with.
The Liberty has no air filters to clean and has a sealed unit. This means there is less opportunity for damage. Lister hold the Royal Warrant and all clippers are made here in the UK, with parts readily available.
The Liberty is available as a Cordless clipper, as a Mains clipper and can also run from a 12 Volt battery with the correct leads.
The Liberty can be used for horses (full or partial clips), for clipping cattle along their backs and tails and, if you use the Wizard blade, it can be used to dag up to 15 sheep.
The Liberty takes the full range of high quality Lister blades, including the popular Covercote blade that leaves 5mm of hair (unique to Lister) and the Wizard Sheep Shearing blade. It comes with an A2F blade as standard, but we are happy to switch blades if desired.
NEW Lithium Battery
Lister have now released a NEW version of the Liberty clipper, with a brand new more powerful and more modern lithium battery pack. This battery pack is an improvement on the old battery pack because:
- it is more efficient and more powerful, making the clipper run faster
- 2.5 hours clipping time
- it recharges in 4 hours
- its has an LED light to let you know when the battery is getting low
- the battery slows down when it is close to depleted and stops with 10% battery life still left. This protects your battery (batteries should never be allowed to run completely flat).
- the connection between the clipper and the battery is stronger
- the belt that holds the battery is stronger
NEW Libretto Max Lithium Horse Clipper/Trimmer details:
Slim, quiet and surprising capable. The Libretto, Lister's premium trimmer, describes it self as a super trimmer and it most certainly is. If you add a wide blade, it is capable of a full clip on a light coated horse. It is also excellent for dog grooming. Of course, its primary use is for trimming a horse and it is quiet, comfortable to use and very powerful for a trimmer.
Using the same NEW lithium battery pack as the NEW Lister Liberty Lithium.
The Libretto is powered by a 12v motor so it is cool running and quiet in use, please note this is compared to most 240v mains clippers.
The Libretto uses the A5 blade system which are easy to use and are pre-tensioned so there is less to fiddle with. The range of blades is huge going from Surgical (0.2mm), to leaving 8mm of hair. The Libretto comes with a no.10 blade this leaves 1.8mm of hair so it is very similar to the length left by a Lister A2F blade.
The Libretto will give a full clip on most horses and is well suited to the lighter coated breeds. The Libretto can clip light manes and feathers, but only just. If this is a requirement you should look at the Lister Star or similar.
Additionally, with a quick change of blades you can clip your dog.
The Libretto is a very capable light - medium duty machine that can do so much more than just trim.

We Say: Lister have been developing and testing this battery for a number of years and we are very excited by the result. The battery is definitely an improvement. It is no smaller than the old battery, but the power, recharge time, warning lights and stronger cable connection make it a welcome improvement. The Liberty and Libretto Combo has long been our favourite clipper tool kit and now we love it even more!
