Category: Grooming Equipment

Purchase: I wanted to buy a heavy duty clipper, that could be used to not only touch up my horse for shows, but also body clip her in the fall and winter. I bought this Oster clipper from Dover Saddlery for about $150.00 the seperate blades that don't originally come witht he clipper are $22.00 a peice, and the #10 wide blade costs about $28.00

Likes: I swear this clipper is unbreakable! I have dropped it I don't know at least 30 times, from up on a stool, and it has been stepped on clewed and pretty much beaten to the pulp...the housing is so thick and durable!! I love that even though it is so heavy duty it also is super lightweight. The sweep is much wider than on other body clippers I have used, so the clip goes much fater and look much neater. It has 2000 strokes per minute. It comes with the detachable #10 wide blade, the cord for it is plenty long at 12 feet. With the clippers came a cleaning brush, a blade guard, and oil and grease....super good price for everything you get!

Dislikes: I was prewarned that these were loud clippers, but I never expected them to be so noisy, so unless you have a super calm horse that tolerates clipping I would not reccomend them.

Quality: Like I said before these clippers are virtually unbreakable. The blades or of high quality and do not dull fast, even when clipping through thick coarse hair.

Summary: This is a great clipper to have around the barn, but like I said before, because it is so loud, it may not be the right clipper for everyone.
