Horse Tack Review


Oster
Golden A5 Single-Speed Clipper
Grooming Equipment

For Sale on eBay


Manufacturer: Oster
Model: Golden A5 Single-Speed Clipper
Category: Grooming Equipment

Purchase: Purchased this item at Tractor Supply Company approx 2.5 years ago for around $150. Wanted a nice set of clippers for trace or chaser clips, bridle path, fetlocks, etc.

Likes: Compact carrying case, easy-to-find replacement blades, heavy duty casing around the unit.

Dislikes: After about 3 months, I thought I needed new blades because the unit clipped very slowly and not very neatly. After burning through many sets of expensive blades, I realized the problem is the clippers. The unit gets hot and the motor just gives out. After very little use, they became loud, easily overheated, and vibrated violently, startling my very clipper-trained horse.

Quality: Seemingly well constructed casing, nice heavy, long cord, unit still looks new. However, the motor is not so hot, or it is too hot, you decide.

Summary: I am very disappointed with these clippers. I was familiar with the Oster brand, and I wanted to purchase my first set of nice clippers, what a shame I purchased these. Hope to be able to invest in another set of clippers soon, but they will not be Oster.
