Body Clipping Questions!?!

Hey Everyone!
My name is Lauren, I have been riding horses for twelve years, I am currently fourteen. I have been in search of a good quality, body clipper as I have been using my trainer's for many months and it is time for me to invest in my own. I really like the one my trainer uses, it is the Andis AGC2 Super 2 - Speed Horse Clipper, it can be found at Andis Super 2-Speed Professional Clipper with Size 10 Detachable

Does anyone use or know anything about this particular clipper? Where is the best place to purchase? What does it include? What is the quality? We have used it at our local horse stable (I work for one), and we have about twenty four horses, and it has held up pretty well. What do you all think? Is it suitable for full body, legs, head, ears?

Thank you!
Lauren

Honestly, for a body clip on a horse, I won't use anything but my Double K's... LOVE.

Double K's are wonderful, but if you don't have that kind of money to spend, the Andis are fine.

They fit well in your hands with that design, and are a very durable clipper. Make sure you have plenty of Kool Lube handy.

2 places to order with comparable pricing are petedge, and ryans grooming supplies.

Thank you all for your input, I'm looking for an inexpensively priced, yet relatively good-quality pair of clippers. I think I'm going to go with the Andis, I was VERY pleased with my trainer's pair! Thank you all for all the provided information, now where should I purchase? I will check out those two places mentioned above first.
