70 cattle clipped on the first charge of the clippers that I bought and pictured above. Have the battery charging in the kitchen tonight. 70 more cattle and it will have all done that it has to do this year.
Might go the same route as yourself. Only thing with battery clippers will the battery last from being idle.hard to bate the power of a corded machine

Thats true ford76. Like I had a cordless one and the charger went after 12 months then 1 of the battries went and after another 12 months the 2nd batterie went and there is no replacement ones to be got so they are expensive to keep them going ...

Just be careful where you charge batteries Lads, only heard the other night about some poor sod whose house was burnt to the ground couple of weeks ago....turns out the fire was started by a phone left on a charger.

I can't justify big money on a clippers that will only be working for 2 or 3 hours a year when you add all its running time together. I did the deal on this clippers this morning from a company in the uk. £140 sterling. We will see how it goes. Most places are trying to sell 2 batteries, but 1 will be adequate for me. Basic bog standard thing, but should be better and faster than a corded clippers.

dragging this thread back up

clipping cattle's back when housed

worth it or not?

i might do a experiment, run all mine over the scales and clip every other animal
in 3 weeks weigh the clipped and get a average dwg then weigh the hairy and see if any difference:huh:

I have the same one, it's not fantastic and I wouldn't recommend it unless you have small numbers to do or do them in batches. There are better ones out there, I use the jakoti manual clippers exclusively now to be perfectly honest

That’s identical to the one in work bar the name . Clippers Ireland sell the same one again just a different name on it . Fine clippers keep a sharp blade and comb on it and it should clip a lot of stock no hassle.

What type of blades would be the best for cattle backs and tails . Got a new clipper wit sheep shearing head and didn’t think it worked great on the cattle backs
