Suggestions for body clippers?

I need to but a set of clippers for my pony-- he's a year old, and still has his baby fluff under his shedding winter coat, and normally I wouldn't mind but he's been getting into some burs somewhere, and I'm sick of combing them out of his fur.

I'd like to spend less than $150, and honestly was looking at these Pink ARCO SE Clipper
From Jeffers, but I don't know anything about clippers at all. Any suggestions?

We have the cordless oster clippers.... they are quiet and cordless, which the with out cord is the best.... our horse accepts everything except the ears being clipped.... I highly reccomend cordless but other than that, I don't really know. Ours were around $300.

If your pony is under 15h I wouldnt bother getting the expencive horse clippers. The ones your looking at willl do just fine if you want. In my opinion iI wouldnt spend that much money them. I have been looking at the stable pro clippers by whal I believe they are about 80 bucks. I have four horses and I use regular hair clippers nothing special I got them at fredmyer for 20 bucks but it is time to upgrade for my horses are at 15h plus it takes me a day and a half to do good luck. Oh yea! Before you clip try to give him a bath the day before if possible and try to scrub the top area of his hindquarter for that area collects a lot of dirt. The dirt tends to clog the clippers sometimes.

Well, if I'm going to buy clippers, I figured I'd use them on my QH next spring when she's shedding her winter coat, too.

I guess I just don't want to get some that won't be good for body clipping, like ones just for face or bridle paths.

For entire body clipping you need a pretty heavy duty pair. I have the Oster Clipmaster variable speed. It works great for legs and bodies. I can't speak to any other brand, but I would never buy a cordless anything. The batteries just don't last. Body clipping is a big job and having a powerful enough clipper to get it done with prevent your horse from getting his hair pulled by a slow motor. Plus the faster you can do it, the less stressful it tends to be.

For faces and small stuff, I have the Oster A-5. After 10 years mine is almost ready to die and I would like to buy the two-speed A-5 to replace it.
