Talking Clippers!!!

My dad says he will buy me a new set of clippers of my choice for heavy-duty body clipping! Has anyone ever used the "Andis Power Groom" clippers! Anything that will go through a somewhat normal coat!

See if he'll go for the Double K's, those are the BEST for body clipping :)

I definitely recommend the Andis HC clippers, they are by far the best of any clippers out there.

Agree on the Double K recommendation-- I have used a "Groomer's Edge" model with a 20 foot cable for the past 18 years-- have replaced the handset once, I replace levers (the little arm that fits into the slot on the back of the blade) occasionally, when they start to "wobble".

They take Oster A5 or equivalent sized blades, which you can get anywhere.

I start each body clip with two #10 blades and switch off between blades when they start to get hot (the clipper handset never gets hot as the motor is NOT in the handdset-- it is cable driven from a seperate motor housing and is very powerful) and they clip like a hot knife thru butter-- and I have clipped long dirty nasty hair without leaving lines. Granted, long dirty hair is heck on the blades, but the clippers has never suffered!
