Oster's PowerMax Sets New Standard in Power, Performance
Oster Professional Products introduces new PowerMax, the most powerful two-speed clipper ever produced by the industry-leading manufacturer of equine clippers and grooming products. With a rotary motor that operates at more than 4,100 strokes per minute, PowerMax provides the winning combination of speed and power that can handle even the toughest jobs with ease.
"PowerMax really represents a significant advance in the two-speed clipper category," said Brooke Berg, equine and large animal product manager, Oster. "This clipper sets a new standard in power, as well as design. Horse owners and caretakers will appreciate the speed, power and comfort of PowerMax whether they have one horse to clip or several."
Slimmer than other two-speed models, PowerMax has a contoured body that makes it very comfortable to hold. It features a specially designed padded grip that remains cool even during extended periods of use. PowerMax is also 20 percent lighter than the Oster A5, making it one of the lightest clippers in its class.
"PowerMax has a very sleek and comfortable design," said Lynn Palm, nationally recognized horsewoman, clinician and founder of Palm Partnership Training. "It fits nicely in my palm and is very easy to hold. PowerMax clips great and is quieter than other clippers we've used in the past. We've found the higher speed works well on course hair around the bridle path and legs and the lower speed is perfect for the ears and whiskers."
PowerMax comes with Oster's CryongenX blade, the only blade equipped with an AgION antimicrobial coating that protects against a broad range of bacteria and reduces the growth of mold and mildew. It also features Oster's detachable blade system for quick, easy blade changes and versatility in cutting.
PowerMax is easy to maintain and comes with a size 10 detachable blade, blade guard, cleaning brush, lubricating oil and two replacement drive tips. For more information visit www.osterpro.com or call 1-800-830-3678.
