best clippers???

Hi!
I was wondering what everyone thought were the best clippers. My trainer's clippers broke so I cannot use hers and I am wanting to buy my own. I do NOT want to spend over $100 so please do not give me any recommendations if they are over $100. Thank you! But I will be needing ones to do a full body clip on my horse.

This January I got a horse from auction that was clearly kept under lights....she still had a summer coat and I had a lightweight and medium weight blanket on her for a long time, now she has a really thick winter coat and is NOT shedding. I feel really bad that she has to be in the sun and rode in the heat with the thick coat so I want it gone. Haha

I also have to do a trace clip on my pony every winter because she gets hot and sweaty even in 30 degree weather.

So I also need something that will last.

I have attached links to the ones I am considering...PLEASE let me know what you think of them or if you have any other suggestions.

Thank you!!!

Well either of those will do the job; I prefer Andis, myself, and as a dog groomer for 15 years, that is all I ever used. I used one of my 2 speeds to do my mare's body clip this winter, and although it took longer than a regular horse clipper it did do the job. These do have the advantage of being quieter than larger bulkier clippers as well.

However, keep in mind you will want to clip a clean horse with either of these clippers, simply because they are a smaller clipper, and all the dirt an unclean horse will have, will gum up your blades alot quicker than a normal horse clipper.

I would try to stretch your budget. You're not going to get a good quality body clipper for under $100. Osters are what I hear clip the best. Dog groomers and horse groomers use them alot

I would love to be able to spend more on clippers but sadly I can't. Thanks for the help though! I do like oster too because that is what my trainer had but hers were pretty loud. Didn't bother my horses but it annoyed me after a while. Haha! But yes I always give my horses very thorough baths before I clip them. I like my blades to last as long as possible. If I wasn't in a rush to get clippers I would probably save up and get better ones but it has already been in the 90s and humid. I want my horses to be comfortable. But thanks a lot!

You might want to try around consignment stores if you have some locally, also I have seen some decent reconditioned clippers with warrantys on ebay. I actually got one of the refurbed pairs from ebay myself a few months ago and have absolutely no problems with them.

Oster A2s would fit in your budget I think...I don't think you can beat Oster products
