Andis GTO 04710 Professional T-Outliner Beard / Hair Trimmer
  • The shape up machine is well made . Sold at a great price and it's an outstanding product. I used it a few times and it's working good.
  • Works well. cuts close.
  • It's sharp and cuts to about 150th of an inch. No itch no burn. With this blade you'll be able to get into every nook & cranny.
  • The blade hasn't dulled at all and the motor works as well as the day I bought it which was just about a year ago.
  • I would love for them to be sharper but I guess there could be some adjustments made that can get them where I want them to be, but right out the box they were not as sharp as I wanted them.
  • Had to adjust the blades because they were slightly crooked and not aligned. Other than that they worked great.
  • Received it and 3 days later it seized up, tryed oiling didn't work finally took blades off oiled put back together now doesn't cut as close.
Wahl 8655-200 Peanut Professional Clipper / Trimmer
  • I use it to trim my beard and it has a powerful motor and sharp blades.
  • The edges of the blade are rounded on both ends so my bows hardly feel a scratch when I am trimming around their ears.
  • I love the red blade guard. It helps keep the blade from being damaged and fits on snugly.
  • Right out of the package it pulls my wiskers and snags on my beard. The blade is dull. It feels cheap.
  • I've oiled the blade and it still pulls my hair and snags every time.

What customers say about "Size & Weight"
Andis GTO 04710 Professional T-Outliner Beard / Hair Trimmer
  • great design, close cut, couldn't be happier.
  • On top of that the cast metal exterior gives it a nice solid feel.
  • Too heavy and very thick body, therefore awkward handling.
  • However, the T-blade head is not the most comfortable thing raking across my scalp. I like the trimmer, but don't think that I'd buy the same ones for the same application.
  • First impressions of this product were the great design and the weight. Although a noticeable increase in weight from my Andis Pivot Pro, the durability and closeness of the cut should greatly makeup for it.
Wahl 8655-200 Peanut Professional Clipper / Trimmer
  • Ideal size and shape
  • Perfect compact size for sideburns and mustache trim.
  • Easy to handle (due to size).
  • I use this for beard trimming, and the small size is very maneuverable.
  • Light weight and portable.

What customers say about "Features"
Andis GTO 04710 Professional T-Outliner Beard / Hair Trimmer
  • It cuts close and the blades are adjustable and it's easy to use.
  • This cuts just as well especially considering the price. With proper maintenance it'll last at least a yr b4 needed new blades.
  • Great trimmer for balding and lineups. Blade is adjustable, watch youtube tutorial for gapping the blade or take it to a barber and see if you can get him to do it (tip him well if he does) WOULD NOT recommend to "Zero Gap" the blade if you are not a professional licensed Barber with exlerience.
  • Hair/beard lining made easy!
  • I prefer adjusting them because they get so hot but other than that I highly recommend getting them.
  • I've been using Andis for years and my expectations have always been met. One issue though. It gets very HOT after long usage.
Wahl 8655-200 Peanut Professional Clipper / Trimmer
  • Sturdy construction, simple design, with an ergonomic fit to the hand.
  • Very sharp at first and maintains precision beutifully for a long time.
  • The Peanuts cuts in a very precise and sharp way.
  • Regardless the precision is fantastic and it cuts the edges of my back, near the ears and beard well.
  • Good price, lots of accessories.

What customers say about "Power"
Andis GTO 04710 Professional T-Outliner Beard / Hair Trimmer
  • Plus, the corded trimmers always have a consistent power.
  • I like the size of them and the strength of the motor. With that said there are some shortcomings namely the blade getting hot.
  • Strong motor Edge ups are simple.
  • Easy to use, quiet, and doesn't require a great deal of pressure when lining.
  • It is not very loud nor does it vibrate heavy.
Wahl 8655-200 Peanut Professional Clipper / Trimmer
  • I like that it is corded because I never have to worry about it cutting out or losing power.
  • Plenty of power and no worries about batteries running out of juice at the wrong time.
  • Some may find the cord too short.
  • I just wish the cord was a little bit longer.
  • Cord can feel a little short depending on your setup (or where your outlet is).
