Constanta4 Clipping Machine Constanta stands for constancy in development. What is now the fourth generation of Constanta shearing machines has been optimised even further, inspired by the desire to create the perfect sheep shearing machine. Tried-and-tested motor technology: The responsive motor, developed for the Constanta3, has proven to be reliable and powerful. There was therefore absolutely no reason to change this 400 Watt powerhouse. Enormous tractive power: The tried-and-tested motor technology gives the Constanta4 tremendous tractive power. Even with matted and dirt-caked animals, the Constanta4 glides through the hair without any loss in performance. Ideal ventilation dynamics: Particular attention has been paid to the cooling of the motor and the clipping head. In collaboration with the Munich University of Applied Sciences, a special ventilation system has been developed that also allows the Constanta4 to keep a “cool head”, even when in constant and rigorous use! Practical design: A professional piece of equipment must satisfy strict ergonomic demands. The weight, centre of gravity and shape have been selected to ensure that working with them is as fatigue-free as possible.

Universal Blade System

Premium Clipper Blades

The propulsion system built into the Constanta4 has been designed based on a universal blade system. The shearing blades are made from specially-hardened tool steel. This special steel gives Constanta shearing blades excellent durability with improved grinding properties and first-class cutting capacity.

The newly-developed tooth geometry and the special hollow grind enable the lower blade to slide into the hair even more easily and align the hair perfectly for the cut. Even the most difficult coat conditions, such as dirty or matted ones, are no match for the Premium clipper blades from Kerbl!
