Best Clippers You've Used

So ever since my horse broke my original clippers last spring [can't remember the brand but they were ginormous and just all around bulky, loud and old ] I've been trying to find clippers to replace them, I bought 2 different clippers, cordless and with a cord, that my tack shop owner strongly suggested one from Oster and one from Wahl. Both have broken since then, the cordless wont keep a charge for longer then 10mins and the corded one just wont work half the time for some reason and when it does it doesn't clip the hair right [hard to explain]. I take good care of them but for one reason or another they just break. It's getting to be that time of the year again and I'm searching once again. What are some really nice clippers that you've had that have lasted?

ALSO; just thought of this, could the reason why the corded clippers broke/stopped working well be because of the thickness/coarseness of the hair? Last year I was showing a gelding that had thick/long really coarse facial hair.

Subbing. I'm also clipper shopping. I've had a couple brands recommended to me by friends, but I'm interested to hear what other folks have to say.

Could everyone tell how long they've had the clippers and what/how much they use them? Thanks for the ones that have already replied! :)

What blades are you using? The blades wear fast if there is any dirt in the hair. I am constantly cleaning and oiling mine just to be on the safe side. I also have Cryogen blades, they seem to be holding up.

They may have been wore out. Where they used?
I bought some and I love them. Every show barn that I have worked at used them too. That's why I bought them.

No, those are the ones my horse broke..well I broke but I blame it on my horse. I was clipping my old gelding and he spooked and shoved his body into me [because when he's scared he has to be in his mommies lap] anyway I ended up dropping them and bye-bye best clippers ever.

I also oil and clean my clippers religiously. I used the original blades that came with the clippers for my original clippers but I can't remember the blades I used on the other two clippers. They were probably Oster because my tack shop has a limited choice of blades and I was going to order better ones but never got around to it, and now I gave them away.
