ProBlade Clipper Services advises how to best maintain horse, dog and cattle clipper blades and batteries.

ProBlade will sharpen your blades to the best possible standard.  Here are a few tips to help your clipper blades stay sharper for longer.


By following a few simple rules, your blades will last you for many years...

  • Animals must be clean and dry before clipping begins.
  • Blades must be oiled before and after use.
  • Whilst clipping, your blades must be oiled regularly, at least every 10 minutes.
  • If your blades overheat, allow them to cool down and oil them. 
  • Brush hair from between the blade teeth as it builds up, switching off your clippers before you do this. 
  • Be careful not to drop your blades or bang them on a hard surface as damage to the teeth will occur and cutting will be impaired. 
  • Remove your blades after clipping, clean thoroughly, oil and store in an oiled cloth or the manufacturer's packaging.
  • Ensure your blades are sharpened on a regular basis to ensure a clean, smooth clip for your animal.


The following will help lengthen the life of your battery pack...

  • When you have finished clipping fully charge your battery. 
  • Like all batteries, your clipper battery pack will need to be completely discharged periodically.
  • When discharging your battery, remove the blades and allow the clippers to run until they stop. 
  • If you put your clippers into storage ensure your battery is fully charged beforehand and charge periodically throughout the storage time.
