FAQ

How do I know if my clipper brushes need changing?

Brushes are generally good for up to 200 hours of use. It will be noticeable in clipper performance when it is time to change the brushes. Generally, clippers will begin to slow down, run roughly, and then stop working.

How do I grease my clipper?

Only clippers with a universal motor require greasing - for example, the Classic 76, Model 10 or Turbo 111. In order to grease the clipper, remove the front cover plate (nameplate) to access to the gear box. This will allow you to determine if the clipper needs to be greased. If clipper does need grease, use about 1/2 teaspoon. Fill the gear box with the grease. Make sure the grease covers the gears. Most of our products come packed with a grease tube.

Why does my blade rattle on my clipper?

Over time the socket on your blades may have become damaged. Check the "wings" on your blade socket to see if they may be bent outward or broken.

How do I properly remove the blade from my clipper? (A5, A6, Outlaw, Powermax, Power Pro and Volt)

With the clipper facing you, place the pad of your thumb on the blade and swiftly push the top of the blade away from the clipper. This will make the blade '"tongue" or "blade assembly" open and you can slide the blade off. off the "tongue" and replace the new blade on the "tongue". With the "tongue" open, turn clipper on and then push the blade towards the clipper (shut), this will ensure the proper engagement of the blade on the driving tip.

How do I get my blade back on my clipper? (A5, A6, Outlaw, Powermax, Power Pro and Volt)

First, ensure that the rectangular metal "tongue" or blade hinge assembly is in standing position or open. If it is closed, insert a flat head screwdriver under the tongue and applying enough force, push the hinge back to standing position. Once this is complete, slide the blade on the tongue, turn your clipper on and push the blade down and snap the hinge assembly closed.

    Best clippers I have ever owned

    By DogMom on Nov 27, 2020

    I purchased this along with the Oster A5 10-piece comb attachment set. These are the quietest clippers and highest quality clippers I have ever owned. I can really feel the difference, and it makes grooming my dogs a pleasure. I have been a dog owner for almost 30 years and owned two other brands of clippers. I have an 11-lb toy Schnauzer and a 40-lb Mini-Bernadoodle and they work well on both types of hair. I have to stop frequently and brush out the blades when using the comb attachments on the Bernadoodle, and I would consider ordering a cordless variety of clippers next time just because my dog squirms a bit and I get tangled up with the cord and the dog when trying to work quickly.

    Best Yet! Love the Colors too

    By PitterPatterPrints2017 on Aug 9, 2020

    I have been grooming with Oster brand clippers for over 25 years (the A5 before this product came out) and I think this is their best yet! Quiet and easier to hold. It does however get hot rather quickly so change out your blade and the A5 Comb attachments fit just fine! Another review said they did not fit but they do.

    Great product

    By Brenda on Jun 30, 2020

    I have tried a variety of clippers for my dogs. Most of them were not of solid construction and the blade would pop out whenever it tried to tackle a matted place. These clippers are much quieter than most I’ve used. They are sturdy and are up to the challenge of mats in all areas.

    loved this clipper

    By doglover on Mar 14, 2020

    This clipper was super and worked great. until the day it just quit. But I had it over a year and a half in good working order so I cannot complain. I would definitely recommend this and am repurchasing a replacement.

    Oster A 6 dog clippers.

    By Kathy on May 31, 2019

    Great clippers. Easy on your hands. Grooms right through dogs' coats. Did not get extremely hot as some reviews stated. Very good price fast delivery. Many people review and complain about clipper cutting power. This is not the clipper. It's the blades. Many really need a good cleaning and oiling. All blades are not for all dogs. Love chewy.

    Good clipper, but.......

    By Alleegirl on Apr 30, 2019

    The Oster A6 comes with a #10 cyrogen X blade which is perfect for those who want to do an all-over very short cut ALL THE TIME because there are no detachable comes nor any other Oster blades that are compatible with this A6 model which, unfortunately, made it useless for my standard poodle. The light weight of this clipper is very good but not realistic to use on any animal unless otherwise noted in my opening statement. Chewy customer service is very good as I have returned this clipper. I can only hope there’s a revised description of what this clipper DOESN’T do or Oster gets on the ball to make this clipper worth its price tag.

    Not worth the money

    By Gabi on May 27, 2019

    I got one of these sometime ago. The case broke little by little starting by the "chrome like" plastic. It's hold by 2 screws, 1st one broke, then the vibration broke the rest. I though it was a bad apple, so I bought the same Later. Bad mistake!!! Exactly the same thing happened...and it's not older than 4 months. As a professional groomer I used other Oster Clippers and never had an issue like these one. Do not buy this model if u don't want to waste your money. BTW...cable is very stiff so it's gets on your way when grooming...because it's not really flexible, if u wrapped the Clippers with the cord, the cord would stay all curled and I'd need to s traighten it by hand several times b4 it I got one of these sometime ago.
