Body Clippers?

So I have spent over $400 paying people to clip my horses, so I figure it is time to just buy my own set so I don't have to worry about it any more. But, I'm not really sure what to buy. I am looking for a good set of body clippers that will clip a hairy horse and won't take me all day. They really need to be not too loud, because I have some nervous horses to clip. And not over $300. Any advice?

The basest horn of his hoof is more musical than the pipe of Hermes.
He's of the color of the nutmeg and of the heart of the ginger.
His neigh is like the bidding of a monarch,
And his countenance enforces homage.
- William Shakespeare

Look up the
Super AGR+ Vet Pak

I just bought these. They are real quiet...But you have to change the blade to the T-84, It's a wider blade. These are real quiet and you can use them as a cordless or attach a cord. Good luck

I will never ever again body clip without my Double Ks. They are HIGHLY worth the price, the difference is amazing :)

I have owned over the years , Oster Clipmaster, Double K's, Lister Star, and Andis HC. I have to say without a doubt that the Andis HC clippers are by far the best, I love them so much that I even traded in my small trimmers of an Andis trimmers and even got a pair of Andis Dog clippers for my dogs. Andis all the way!!! The HC model which I have is super for body clipping the hairy to the not so hairy horses. They are big and will clip anything, yet easy to use, always does a beautiful job leaving NO lines (you couldnt leave lines if you wanted to), and they are pretty quiet for larger clippers. I just love them!!!
