What else should I know?

Whilst Wahl claim that their clippers are compatible with the blades and accessories of other brands, we generally recommend using Wahl’s own ‘Competition Series‘ blades only.  These blades have been specifically designed for Wahl clippers and, as such, ensure the best performance and results.  To ensure you get maximum working life from your blades, we suggest oiling them before use and, at regular intervals (during clipping) to control surface temperature.  Failure to do so will cause blades to overheat, which will gradually dull the cutting edge making them drag through the coat, folding and pulling the hair.  As such, it’s important to adopt a system of care for your blades to avoid the cost of more frequent resharpening and replacement.

Busy salons should en devour to have their clippers serviced every 12-18 months.  This will help avert any unexpected breakdowns, which may lead to loss of business and inconvenience for your customers.  By returning your equipment for routine inspection, our technicians will perform…

Pre-inspection Checks.
Validate service history
Assess condition and operation

Under the hood.
Dismantle component parts
Clear dust, dirt and hair clippings
Replace worn parts (e.g. hinge assembly, blade drive lever, motor carbon brushes)
Lubricate moving parts (as necessary)

To finish.
Test blade speed and torque
Test electrical safety (PAT)

Any additional parts, other than those deemed as wearable, will only be replaced with owners permission.  A formal quotation (without obligation) will be provided for your approval.  All parts and labour are guaranteed for 12 months, or until the manufacturer ceases support for your product, whichever is soonest.

It’s good practice to own a second pair of ’emergency’ clippers, to use whilst your day to day equipment is being examined or repaired.  We frequently have ‘open-box’ and ‘pre-owned’ products on sale, so you can save money.  Please call us for more details as the available choice of models can change from week to week.
