After 20 years of grooming with a corded clipper. This one does the job and no hassle of the cord under your feet or touching the dog. Very pleased.
I was hesitant to spend this much money on a clipper but I have a Samoyed who’s poofy and needs regular trims and a husky who’s coat is sleek but I trim him paw pads. Taking them to the groomers is $120+ a piece. So in comparison to paying that times two every few months this is a steal. The clipper works extremely well. Even on thick double coated dogs like a Samoyed. It stayed cool. I’ve owned other $100+ clippers that got hot really fast and were unwieldy. This one is very easy to use. My only gripe is the little ring on the base used to hang it up. It’s always making noises as I move through a trim. I wish that there was a built in way to keep it in place. This is such a small and nit picky thing though. I love the clipper and have no problem recommending it
I have been grooming for over 20 years, I have had so many clippers. I still have the corded 5 speed andis has lots of power and is very light in your hand, but has a cord. I got the wahl Km cordless about 2 years ago, had to send it to repair once something minor, wahl is a great company and with the guarantee they will repair for free. I also have the Andis purple pulse ZRll 5 speed cordless clipper this one is heavier, but I use it for big matted dogs cuts like butter due to the high 4,500 strokes per minute versus Wahl KM cordless has 3,700 strokes per minute is good for light coats. If you have arthritis in your hands this 2 clippers are a bit heavy.
I’ve had this maybe a week and a half, and they were great for maybe two days & then started being SO loud! My husband says they sound like a weed eater. Too much money wasted and super upset because i thought i had read good reviews. I’m a professional dog groomer, and these clippers are so loud they are scaring my clients while i work on them! I’ve always used chewy and loved chewy, but am so disappointed with this product. I don’t know if something is wrong with them, or if the clippers are just badly made.
I own a salon and we have 5 of these. They are workhorses, all day every day. I've replaced all other clippers in the shop with these. Wahl is great with customer service when they need to be serviced. They are lighter than most cordless, I highly recommend them!
Started off great... now I’m very unhappy with them. Worked with zero problems for about 3 months, now at the 5 month mark I’m embarrassed to being using these in my salon. Cordless is awesome and holds a good charge but my issue is with the motor skipping out when switching on/off, high/low.. as well as being so loud it sounds like a tattoo machine. Does not work well for thick or coarse coated dogs, will skip out or become extremely loud. The casing is also starting to come apart at the seem too... I’d say not your clippers for everyday/ heavy use.
As a professional groomer, I use these all day, every day. I love being cordless. It has helped with hand and wrist problems so much. They are heavier than the corded, so that took a little getting used to. I also love that they are maintenance free. No blade drives to replace.
As a professional dog groomer these are my favorite clippers by far.
They are so heavy and the motor skips out. I will be returning these. They are not worth the money or hassle.
