How to look after your Aesculap Clipper Head
Maintenance for the Unique Aesculap Favorita System:
Care Guide for Favorita Clipper Heads:
STEP 1: DISASSEMBLY
STEP 2: CLEANING
STEP 3: DRYING
STEP 4: OILING
- The spaces between the clipper teeth should also be given a thorough clean.
- If using a disinfectant, the cutting head needs to be dried thoroughly to avoid corrosion.
- The clipper heads must be oiled after cleaning.
- The shearing blades should be oiled with the clipper head attached before each use.
- You should oil the blade every 5-10 minutes during use. Add 3 drops of the special clipper oil on the teeth and 2 drops between the teeth.
- After doing this, before use, let the clipper run for a few minutes to allow the oil to distribute itself to ensure it is not transferred onto the dog’s coat.
The importance of oiling: with proper blade maintenance, you can increase the durability of clipper heads by up to 20%! This can delay how often you will need to sharpen the blades.
