What is a blade drive? A blade drive is a special, flexible part of your clipper that converts the spinning motion of your motor into a side-to-side motion to move the cutting edge of your blades. This piece gets hammered against metal thousands of times per second and inevitably, needs to be replaced. As the drive wears down, it loses its stiffness and sadly, its power. If you're a full-time groomer, you'll probably be a ready for an update every 4-6 weeks. And for the price of a venti Caramel Macchiato, you can order a new one!
