How to properly care for your Aesculap clipper


Econom large animal blades

Changing the blades

  1. IMPORTANT:Ensure to unplug the clipper before removing the blades!
  2. Loosen the knurled screw and loosen the regulation screw by approximately 2 full rotations.
  3. Next, undo both clamping screws, pull off the bottom blade and then remove the upper blade.
  4. Before inserting the upper cutting plate, please ensure that the small oscillator pad is located in the recess provided for the oscillator.
  5. When inserting the upper blade, it is also necessary to ensure that both ends of the oscillator engage precisely in the boreholes in the upper blade.
  6. Slide the lower blade over the heads of the clamping screws against the cutter head housing to the limit stop and then firmly tighten both clamping screws.
  7. Then screw in the regulating screw until the two blades press lightly together.

Setting the right plate pressure

  1. Adjustment should be carried out while clipper is running and without any auxiliary tools.
  2. First, carefully loosen the regulating nut and the regulating screw until the upper cutter plate is no longer pressing against the lower cutter plate (high-pitched sound).
  3. Then screw in the regulating screw until you feel a slight resistance. From this point, turn approx. 1/4 rotation further and then tighten the knurled screw.
Avoid setting the pressure on the blades too high, as this will lead to excessive heat development, which can cause the blades to wear out more quickly.

Oiling the blades

  • IMPORTANT: oil the clipper only while it is running!
  • Never immerse the clipper head in liquid of any kind!
  • Only use lightweight lubricating oil, order no. GT604 Aesculap oil.
  • Oil generously with specified lightweight oil at the oil point marked „OEL“ on the cutter head. Miniumum once before clipping a further animal.
  • Oil spring leaves 2 - 3 times daily 3 - 4 drops of oil!

Greasing the gear drive

  • Only use gear grease of Aesculap art.No. GT605!
  • Apply approx. 1 cm of grease onto the two areas opposite the gear drive 1-2 times during the shearing season.

Removing the cutter head

  1. IMPORTANT: Unplug the clipper before removing the cutter head!
  2. Remove both screws.Then turn the cutter head counterclockwise very slightly, by approximately 15°.
  3. The cutter head can now be pulled off the motor.
  4. Make sure the head has been well cleaned and the gear drive is lightly greased before re-attaching it on the motor. Make sure that the cutter head is rotated by approx. 15° to the left and that the lower flange enganges with the groove of the motor housing.
