Smile Type of Clippers

Ok so I was body clipping one of my horses this past weekend and right before I was finished they died and wouldn't turn back on. They are bout 20 years old and have been rebuilt a few times so I guess there due.

I currently have the Oster Clipmaster's (actually have stewart on them), and those took a dump.

I also have the Oster A-5's...I have not been the happiest with these lately, they don't seem to be cutting well, with new blades.

So I'm going to be at the Equine Affair this next week and thought I'd look at some new ones. I'm really interested in the Andis AGC Super w/the T-84 blades.

My question is what are your experiences with body clippers? I have clipped for years but have only used Oster.

I will NEVER body clip another horse without my Double K's! BEST clippers for body clipping, hands down! :)

I really liked my oysters when they were brand new, but that after a couple of years they didn't cut so well. I don't know what to reccommend but I will check back so I know what the rest of you guys say!

I have clipped with Oster's, Lister Star, Double K's, and Andis - I have to say hands down my favorite clippers are the Andis.

I have the Oster's - I have them packed away in a trunk somewhere and just don't touch them. The Listers were brand new and broke the first time I used them. I used the Double K's twice and then sold them. The Andis are my newest pair and I have had them for about 4 years now and just love them. I used to hate clipping with a passion and now with my Andis clippers I actually enjoy it.

I don't use the model you are interested in though, so I really can't comment on them. I have the HC model and just love them!!!

What didn't you like about the Double Ks? My only complaint is that you need to have a lot of blades available for use because they get so hot very quickly and you need to change them out for a cooler set.
