The replacement blades are easy to change by loosening and removing the nut and bolt on one end.
It is best to change the Smart Tails replacement blades on a flat surface so that it is realigned correctly.
Blades can be replaced or interchanged to different grades as necessary using a small spanner.
All grades of blades will fit on the Professional or Yellow Handle Smart Tails although slight adjustment maybe necessary by either pulling out the metal prongs or pushing them slightly in.
The Superfine blades are used mostly for finishing small show ponies or animals with small docks and very fine hair, as it will get close to the fine top hairs. Also used on all types where final presentation is critical as it will pick up the top fine hairs which are sometimes more difficult with the other grades.se are equally good for using on dogs and other small animals to de-matt and thin out thick hair.
Fine blades are mostly used on hair which have already been tidied or is quite fine. It is also useful to finish really thick tails when a show or close finish is needed, and the bulk of it has already been shaped with a coarser blade.
Medium blades are good for the average type of mane, tail or coat. This will cope with medium to soft hair and is ideal on manes and tails.
Coarse blades are good for thick full tails, manes and think coats, which haven’t been tidied before or are very coarse. This will process a large amount of thick hair easily and efficiently leaving a tidy looking finish. The coarse is also very good on natives that are being shown, and the end result needs to look tidy but still untouched.
