Can anyone recommend a good pair of clippers?
 
I'm looking for something cheap... JUST for whiskers, ears, bridlepaths, and fetlocks.

Every cheap pair of clippers I've tried so far have ended up dying. I really don't want to spend the money on a nice pair if I'm not even going to be body clipping with them.


Thanks!

I LOVE these! They're big enough that they don't crap out when they hit thicker bridle path hair. But they're small enough to very manuverable for clipping whiskers. They can also be used with or without the cord which is very handy at shows when you don't have electricity. And they aren't expensive :)

eBay
 
My best advice to people is to go on ebay. It's a lot cheaper there and for the same amount of money as in stores, you'll be able to get yourself a much nicer pair.

Awesome, thanks guys! I think I'm going to try the ones from Dover Saddlery.

I groomed dogs for 15 years, and never used anything but Andis' line of clippers; any of the super two speeds, or the cordless AGR work great on horses. I still have my first Andis 2 speed clipper, from when I first started in grooming, and have only put a few replacement parts, and a new housing on it, and it still works like a charm. I use my clippers to clip my goats too, and they work really well. They have alot of power, and are pretty reasonable; the cordless is a little more spendy, around 230$ for everything, but is well worth the investment.

I agree, you may be able to find these on e-bay, but there are plenty of dog grooming, and equine sights that will have them for reasonable prices as well.

I agree on the Andis line of clippers I have the 2 speed and have had itt for about 15yrs. Never a problem with them. And they are pretty quiet.

I have the Wahl Pocket Pro clippers- they run on batteries and are only $30.00 (I believe) so it's not too much of an investment. So far they've been great for little things like bridle paths and whiskers. I bought mine at Dover Saddlery.

I love the Wahl clippers. I've had my pair for awhile now and they're still running. (:

I think that's what I'm going to go with : ]

Thanks for the suggestions, everybody.

We like the Double K clippers. We use them a lot.
