Pro Series Rechargeable Clippers
Model: Pro Series Rechargeable Clippers
Category: Dressage Saddles
Purchase: I have two sets; I bought one at a local store for $55 that came with two blade adjustments and another on clearance for $33 that was a set with 10 blade adjustments and a dvd for dogs (normally $100).
Likes: I like that they are rechargeable, which means that I can use them anywhere and not have to have an outlet. My barn is too wide for crossties, so I do all of my grooming, saddling, etc outside with the horses tied to my horse trailer. I prefer not to use an extension cord, so it is helpful to have rechargeable clippers...plus with training the babies, it's nice not to have to worry about getting tangled in a cord. I also like that until they get dropped, they are exceptionally quiet and don't vibrate too much. The blade comes off easily so it is easy to clean.
Dislikes: These clippers are probably just fine for training a horse to clip, or if you need something simple for your trail horses like bridle paths. They do not cut long hair well (and by long hair, I mean the kind of hair you might find on the legs of an older thoroughbred in the middle of summer...I wouldn't even attempt anything with feathers). The charge doesn't last very long; I can clip the legs of one horse and the charge is gone. It also doesn't clip very close. It leaves things like whiskers at about a 1/3" length, and leaves the hair on the coronary band overlapping the hoof. If you want a really close trim for a horse show, this is not going to be the right clipper for you.
Quality: As I mentioned, this is a cordless clipper. It is not very durable---I dropped it once and while it still works okay, it doesn't clip as well as it used to (which was never great to begin with) and it's now loud and vibrates a lot. Additionally, it doesn't clip close, but it is very quiet.
Summary: If you show horses, invest in something else. If you need something to train the babies or something for your trail horse, or if you just like to go to one or two fun shows every year, this might be the right clippers for you. They are cheap and work fine for simple tasks, but don't clip close.
Usefulness Rating: 2.5 out of 5.
