  • Grooming Arms

    Okay, over the last 2 weeks we have lost 3 grooming arms from big awful OAY's.

    Tell me, where can I find heavy duty arms? I have one that I bought from a groomer going out of business. It is thick and it two arms with a bar connecting on top. I absolutely LOVE it, I took it apart to make two heavy duty grooming arms.

    Thanks,
    Kristen

    That is precisely why I don't like the OAY dogs, UGH!!!

    I have the Master Equipment brand foldable grooming arm, and surprisingly, I really like it (I don't like much of anything else of that brand). This arm has been pretty sturdy, but it doesn't get much bad behavior pulling on it. I did have a standard poodle yesterday that freaked a little on me. I accidently let the hydraulic table down a little too quickly and he freaked and threw his back end off the table (after it was totally lowered to 12"), his front end had been in the loop and hooked to the groomers helper, but he slipped it hard and fast! All was fine, and the grooming arm held up, lol.

      I bet you could make some really heavy duty ones out of galvanized pipe. I made my own lips type system out of it and it is great! I don't think an elephant could break it!

          I use the Forever Stainless brand grooming arm and have not had a problem with it. It is sturdy and very strong with 2 places to clip leads-LOVE it but it wasn't cheap LOL!!

              Mine is homemade out of steel square stock. My table has a 18 inch piece of steel angle iron bolted underneath through the entire table with a welded slide for the square arm to slide through. It locks in place with a set screw. With the entire width of the table supporting the arm I don't have to worry about stability.

                      petlift has a grooming arm that is guaranteed not to bend. I have three of them. Never a problem even with the newfies & saints.

                        I got mine from pet lift, its also where I got my grooming table. And so far so good. Not even have a slight bend in them yet. And trust me, there have been some heavy dogs that have tried to!

                          I have the Master Equipment brand foldable grooming arm also for the rear and it works great. I didn't think it would but the base seems to be thicker and it wasn't that much money. I wanted my husband to build me a stronger arm and he kept saying he would WELL I would be waiting till next year so I ordered this one. It is nice also with the lowboy table because it will go to the floor with nothing to stick out underneath and hit your cord for your table.

                            heavy duty arms

                            Years ago I got some of the folding square tube arms and the double screw clamps to put on the ends of my table. After awhile I wanted something even more sturdy so got a peice of square channel iron that would fit over the ends of the existing arms and bolted them together. Then added some eye bolts on the side bars for using gentle leaders to stop the twirlers and biters and to use the hip support, it has held up real well. I do believe I got them through Cherrybrook but that was awhile ago.
