Andis Pulse ZR II 5-Speed Detachable Blade Clipper, Cordless, Removable Lithium Ion Battery – Black
Are you a pet parent with one or more dogs or a professional dog groomer looking for a safe, effective clipper for use in your home or business?
Caring for the family dog, as with every task done well, requires the right tools. Along with feeding and exercising your dog regularly, conscientious grooming of your dog’s body will maintain your dog’s health and appearance. Many pet parents opt to take care of their dogs’ ears, toenails and coat on their own and are looking for a professional level clipper to take care of coarse, matted or curly hair. Other pet parents happily choose to take their dogs to a professional groomer to perform all those tasks in a sanitized, clinical setting. Whether you are a do-it-yourself type pet parent or a professional groomer, using the right tools to clip your dog’s hair will create an efficient, stress-free experience for both you and your dog.
Selecting the right grooming tool for the job should be foremost on the list. Clippers come in all shapes and sizes with varying specifications to meet a wide range of needs. Good quality, cordless grooming clippers that will hold up under continuous use and provide a quiet, less stressful trimming experience for your dog will come with the following features:
- A powerful multi-speed motor to cut through all types of hair,
- A quality ceramic blade that stays cool against your dog’s skin,
- A quiet motor sufficient to keep your dog calm, and
- A cordless Lithium Ion battery for long-lasting performance.
Whether you are a professional dog groomer or a pet parent with one or more dogs who require regular grooming, the Andis Pulse ZR II 5-speed cordless Clipper has been updated to address all your grooming needs. The Andis Pulse ZR II provides a more comfortable grooming experience for both you and your pet.
The clipper comes with a detachable #10 CeramicEdge blade which stays cooler than traditional steel blades and remains sharper for frequent use. It is also compatible with the UltraEdge blade, both of which are available in a variety of sizes for all your trimming needs. Other blade sizes can also be interchanged for cutting around the face and ears or trimming the feet. Only the #10 CeramicEdge blade is included in the package; other blades can be purchased separately.
The package includes the clipper, the charging stand and adapter, extra international power adapters, an additional blade drive, blade oil for maintenance and a hard storage case.
When fully charged, the clipper has a battery run time of three hours. This is enough time to easily cut the hair of multiple dogs before the unit needs to be charged again. The cordless feature of the clipper makes it easy to move quickly around the dog and the grooming table without getting entangled in a cord attached to an outlet. It also allows for convenient outdoor clipping and less mess indoors.
MAINTENANCE AND SPECIFICATIONS
Regular maintenance will keep your clipper running at top performance. Removing hair from the blade itself and under the blade housing with a blade brush or old toothbrush will keep the blade clean and sharp. Oiling the blade after each cleaning and during use if the clipper blades slow down will keep it running smoothly over the dog’s coat. Additional blades and tubes of oil can be purchased online at any pet retailer.

The blade must be oiled before, during and after each use. Only a few drops of blade oil are required with each application.

When replacing or changing the blade set, it is also important to clean out any hair that has accumulated in the blade cavity when the blade is removed.
