Andis Introduces First Lighted Clipper For Horses

Andis Company

Andis has introduced the first lighted clipper for horses, the AGCL LightSpeed™. The new clipper is equipped with four LEDs, positioned to light the entire clipper blade eighteen times brighter, assuring safer, more precise clipping even in dark, shadowed areas. The light can be turned on or off with the flip of a switch. The heavy-duty rotary motor clipper is high speed at 4,400 spm. It is designed for professional use.

“The AGCL LightSpeed™ is the industry’s first illuminating horse clipper,” says Fred Koeller, Vice President of Marketing at Andis. “The ultra bright LEDs light up an area to increase safety and precision while clipping. The LEDs are an ideal source of light, because they do not heat up and can withstand heavy use without burnout.”

The AGCL LightSpeed™ is equipped with an extra wide T-84 Ultraedge™ blade, which is ideal for horse grooming. A locking switch button assures that the clipper does not turn off accidentally. The clipper’s blades are detachable for easy changing and cleaning.

Andis manufactures the widest variety of blades in the world. For its Ultraedge™blades, Andis’ exclusive carburized hardening process adds carbon to the cutting edge and creates blades that stay sharper, longer. A special chrome finish resists rust and keeps blades at optimum performance.

Like all Andis clippers, the AGCL LightSpeed™ runs quietly to help keep horses calm during grooming. The break resistant housing protects the clipper’s internal parts. It is maintenance free and requires no oiling or greasing. The clipper’s cord is 16’ long and is constructed so that it remains flexible in all types of weather conditions.

Andis Company has been manufacturing handheld equipment to trim, cut, curl and dry hair since 1922. The company’s products are purchased worldwide by barber and beauty shops, consumers, hotels, motels, resorts, small animal groomers and large animal groomers and shearers.
