What customers say about "Key Specs"
Oster Golden A5 2-Speed Pet Clippers
  • These clippers are amazing. The blades are super easy to change and work well on all types of hair. I have used a set of these clippers for twenty years on both people and livestock and pets and they still work like new.
  • Tried cheaper clippers before and would usually throw them away after a year or so. Finally bit the bullet ,glad I did. First cut was so much better, I'm sure this will last for years
  • These clippers work really well for grooming two cocker spaniels. This is our second pair and we couldn't be happier.
  • Great clippers. Very smooth. If cutting through mats you may want to order a blade specific for that. The clipper will handle great with the right blade for the need.
  • Cuts through thick matted hair like butter. Only drawback was the guards do not work, so we had to purchase different blade sizes at sizeable cost. Worth it overall.
Andis ProClip AGC2 Professional Animal Grooming
  • It can be difficult when reading reviews to make the decision right for oneself. I made the right decision with this. The discount provided for a much higher quality than I could get anywhere else.
  • I had been clipping my almost two year old Standard Poodle with scissors or taking him to a groomer every few months. I decided to try clipping him myself and I’m so pleased with the Andis AGC2.
  • As a first time DIY groomer, I was nervous about the whole experience, but these clippers worked like a dream. My husband and I cut my 5mo doodle's hair for the first time and after doing some prep work to orient him to the clippers' sound and vibration, this went much more smoothly than expected.
  • These clippers are wonderful! They did get warm, however, our first session with them has been spent cutting out some pretty good mats, so heat was expected.
  • My dogs fur is way too short and I’m not used to it. I don’t mind too much because it’s getting warmer but will not do it without attachment combs again. They do cut smooth and no nicks on my dog.

What customers say about "Features"
Oster Golden A5 2-Speed Pet Clippers
  • Took about 20 restarts to get the blades working but it has been fine since. I used this to remove horribly large fur mats off my long-hair senior cat. She HATES it but the power of the unit made quick work of the project and minimum upset for my cat.
  • My cat doesn't have a lot of patience though, so I end up doing him in more than one session. The blades are nice. A little noisy, but it isn't bad enough to scare him. I've done both my cats.
  • This is the most reliable clipper on the market. Easy operation, blade changing and cleaning. Ample cord length and power. OK, they do weigh more with a metal body but the housing doesn't crack or break like the plastic ones do when dropped from a grooming table to concrete floor!
  • This clipper cut through my cats thick matted undercoat like butter. I'd tried 2 other clippers that barely haggled through much to both my and Ezies frustration. I did have to use two new blades so was glad I'd bought a spare.
  • Great clippers, my only fripe is that they heat up to much so I had to get the blade guards.
Andis ProClip AGC2 Professional Animal Grooming
  • The AGC-2 #7 blade did “warm-up” but was not hot to the touch and we never worried that it was too hot-I don’t think it’s possible to use any brand and not expect some sort of heat after 45 minutes of use. It’s light and easy to maneuver with a very long cord.
  • The cord is very long, so I have been able to cut him in many rooms of my house as well as outside without issue. It has two speeds to get through different lengths of hair and is quiet for a razor.
  • Generous long electric cord. Looks like they will last a long time. I assume these would be great for other mixed-breed poodles (labra, golden, etc.).
  • Nice long, heavy-duty cords. Treat these clippers right and they will last for many, many years with heavy use.
  • This is a very well made product. It only comes with a 10 guard, so unless you’re looking to clip your dog super close, you need to order another set of guards. The best part is it has a long cord and is extremely quiet.
