How often should I oil the blades?


We recommend oiling the blades using our R15 Blade Oil to lubricate them before use. This will help the blades run smoothly and prevent overheating. Additionally, every 5-10 minutes when in use. Before oiling, brush the blades clean of grit and dirt.

Ensure to oil the following: blades, prong swivel joints, crank roller and both ends of the tension pin via the front oil hole, fulcrum post via the top oil hole.
Frequent oiling will help keep the blades running smoothly by reducing friction and heat, while preventing strain on the motor.

By following these steps, you can ensure that your Lister horse clippers are working efficiently and effectively, making grooming your horse a breeze.
