blade that came with them is somewhat dull. I miss my good oster clippers. Too bad my favs are being discontiued. Now what do I try? They are so heavy I feel carpel tunnel coming on.
I purchased these and was sent a USED set with dog hair in them and NO blade!! I can't believe chewy is selling returned grooming products!! Awful.
These clippers got so hot even when taking breaks and using cooling spray. They burnt my dog plus there are no guides that fit them.
This is second purchase of the same clippers. I bought my first ones 9 years ago on the recommendation of my breeder. Those are still working great, but got the second one to alternate when they get warm. I groom 2 of my standards and these clippers have have been worth the investment. Great investment!
Excellent clippers but did get hot after a while. This clipper does not come with any blade attachments.
Did I mention HOT? Gave this product the benefit of the doubt because it had more good reviews than bad. Should have listened to the bad. These clippers work fairly well (our older cat had some severe matting) to cut through matting, but the blade was hot within the first 3 minutes. Not just warm, but hot enough where I couldn't press my fingers on it for more than a second without getting burned. I really, really wanted to be able to prove the bad reviews wrong, but I can only confirm what I've read. This product overheats within the first few minutes of use, so instead of getting everything done in one sitting, I'm now working on my 4th time in the last two days as I don't want to burn her. I'm really sick that I spent $200 on this :(
I was looking forward to these clippers. I have a 35lbs labradoodle and I could only get through a little section of her body before it gets to hot to use. My dog and I don't have time to wait until they get cool. They do cut very well.
I'm not a professional groomer, but have groomed my cats & dogs for decades. This is my second Andis Clipper in 30 years. My old one is still working & the only reason I purchased a new one is that I accidentally damaged the outer casing. I decided on the detachable blade version to eliminate needing a screwdriver to change blades. This model did not disappoint! It is so easy to change the blades now. It's the same Andis quality that I've always known. * if the lever/hinge that you slide the blade on ever gets stuck in the down position, (it did once initially), there's a very short & easy YouTube tutorial on how to release it. You need to know that it's not a glitch because if/when you change out the lever/hinge, the new one can be already stuck in the down position. It took literally a few seconds to disengage it & it was/is good to go.
I am returning these clippers because the blades get so hot that I had to change blades every 3 minutes!!
Runs cool. Cuts through fairly easily on our Aussie.
