Oster
Hand Trimmer (manual clippers)
Grooming Equipment



Manufacturer: Oster
Model: Hand Trimmer (manual clippers)
Category: Grooming Equipment

Purchase: I found these at a garage sale for a really cheap price so decided to get them. Our horses are fine around clippers but I thought these might be good for a touch-up when you don't feel like pulling out the regular clippers and all their accessories. I paid $5.00 for them (they were in 'as new' condition).. but some tack stores sell these for around $15.00 Cdn without taxes.

Likes: They seemed pretty well made and Oster is a trusted name so I didn't think I could go wrong. These are definitely quiet and I can see how they might be handy around a nervous animal... if they worked.

Dislikes: I used these to try and trim a simple bridle path on one of our horses. Oops. They were cleaned up, sharpened and oiled beforehand (by me) however they still jammed with the first "cut". Then I had to deal with a horse, who is usually great about new things, getting antsy because the clippers were stuck in her mane. A few strands of her mane were actually trapped within the blades. I finally got them out... and then profusely apologized to my horse!

Quality: Chrome finished manual clippers.

Summary: I'm disappointed in these clippers and will never use them again, or recommend them. For small touch-ups, I'll stick to using a disposable razor. For bigger jobs, I'll pull out the Wahl Stable Pro's. It's not often I give such a dismal product review, but I think this experience warrants it.
