Rechargeable Clipper advice needed

Postby branguscowgirl » Sun Jun 29, 2014 11:07 am

I need to purchase some more clippers to do faces and such on the show cattle. I have the large Clip Masters for body shaving and some real small ones for ears. I need a rechargeable, medium size for faces and legs. I like them to have a full size blade and still be comfortable and light.
Does anyone have a favorite?? Product numbers would be helpful.
Thank you in advance!

Anyone use the Wahl ARCO cordless??

Nes, I have those big Clipmasters also. They work great, but hard to use in tight places.

On mine, the blade is parallel with the body of the clipper.. makes the armpits, etc nearly impossible to do.. they are good though... First time they get clipped with them the noise is a bit frightening though. One of my biggest complaints about it is the fan and air intake for it.. the screen is just *always* plugged, and the fan blows into the fur and you get all the clippings in your face.. I made a bit of a guard on mine which seems to help a bit

That is what my daughter used when showing, you can also put a cord on them. Now they sit around gathering dust. :(

I have used various cordless clippers over the years, I can't think of brand names but have always found the batteries to be very disappointing, if big enough to last a bit they were a big heavy handful and they deteriorated very quickly with intermittent use. I have a couple of drills with the newer Nickel Hydride batteries in them and I must say I am very impressed with them, very light and just keep going and going without charging.
My only advice would be to make sure the batteries are the very latest technology and that the blade they use are a commonly used interchangeable blade that is reliable.

That is good advice Ken. Good clippers are a bit of an investment, $200. and up!
I have been reading lots of reviews and the biggest complaint on the Andis is the batteries crapping out, with a replacement cost of $60 plus each..........
