I was recently looking for clippers and got to compare a few brands in person at Equine Affaire. I must say that each brand had a wide variety of quality... so just saying one brand or another won't do you much good, it's the individual model that you want to pay attention to.

You basically want to do it all with your clippers... Which means it won't do some things quite as well as others. And that's ok, just be aware of that and look for what you want it to do best or most often. If you don't want to compromise, get a pair of trimmers and clippers separately.

After trying out the various clippers I ended up with the Andis AGC 2speed clipper. My main requirements in clippers were: lightweight, quiet, and multi-use. I was able to get a free cordless trimmer with it. The cordless trimmer is ok... battery only lasted for about 25min after a full charge. The Andis AGC is corded and allows you to easily change to different size blades without tools, so I can trim or put on a blade for heavier clipping. It's quiet and lightweight. It has a magnet rotary motor.

Thanks for all the clipper info everyone!

So I'm looking at these -
Oster Power Pro Ultra Cordless Clipper - Horse Clippers from SmartPak Equine

Primarily for face, ears, bridle path, and legs. I've yet to decide if I will body clip next winter, and if I do, will get something bigger and badder then.

Anyone have any opinions on these?

Ask someone in your family! I got a great pair of clippers from my grandma, and they work amazing. She used to use them to cut my uncles' hair. They have lasted over 50 years and still will since I take care of them. Plus they were free!
