This is a brand new clipper to the UK market, but is manufactured by Heiniger in Switzerland who are well renowned manufacturers of cattle, horse and sheep clippers. The quality is without doubt excellent and the power is truly amazing for a cordless clipper. It has a slim grip handpiece and stays cool even when clipping for long periods. It is supplied with two batteries, each will clip for 45-60 minutes and recharges in 30 to 40 minutes. Takes all A5 type snap-on blades. Sold with full 12 months warranty and comes in a very attractive briefcase type case.
