Wahl 79600-2101 Hair Cutting Kit with 10 Guide Combs
  • I cut my hair in the (dry) shower so I kept an extension cord with my clipper to reach, NO MORE OF THAT. This is much faster and safer (even if it is in a dry shower) than before.
  • Charge holds for about 2 hours and only 15-20mins to charge. Trimmer is really small but good, and runs on one AA battery.
  • Very convenient, they work great and hold a charge for several shavings
  • Love this set of clippers. Holds charge long enough to do 2 haircuts.
  • Battery last a long time . Just charge about 20 mins before you need and your good to go
  • When I went to use it a third time I noticed that it just didn't seem to hold a charge as good as I believe it should.
  • Blade is dull and doesn't cut hair well at all.
  • I pull them out today to clean up my neck and when I removed the cover the blades were rusted.
  • It pulls hairs and get stuck continuously. Even on thin hairs. It does not seem to be a power issue but a blade design issue.
  • I wish someone would have mentioned blade adjuster gets stuck on the seam of the clipper and does not slide back and forth easily.
Oster 76023-510 Fast Feed Adjustable Pivot Motor Clipper
  • Smooth, fast and comfortable as well as durable...I feel they will last for quite a while!
  • Excellent for outlining and very sharp.Also very good for shaving.
  • It cuts well and it's sharp. This product is great for shape ups if you do alot of them.
  • They are quiet and powerful. They can cut through both wet and dry hair.
  • It get really close to the skin and cuts smooth without irritating the skin. The only con is it gets pretty hot after a couple minutes, which I find to be annoying for me and my client.

What customers say about "Size & Weight"
Wahl 79600-2101 Hair Cutting Kit with 10 Guide Combs
  • This clipper is much lighter than my old corded one.
  • This clipper is fairly light but retains a solid, quality feel.
  • Black plastic feels cheap. Chrome cover rattles (cheap).
  • I charged the clippers right after using them so they would be ready for my next use. One week later I turned the clippers on for cordless use and the charge was gone.
  • I pull them out today to clean up my neck and when I removed the cover the blades were rusted.
  • It pulls hairs and get stuck continuously. Even on thin hairs. It does not seem to be a power issue but a blade design issue.
Oster 76023-510 Fast Feed Adjustable Pivot Motor Clipper
  • Quality "made in USA" hair trimmer at reasonable price. Has 8 foot power cord.
  • Lightweight and easy to use.
  • i love the T blade, which makes it easier to get around the ears and i do enjoy the bigger, rounder body that fits nicely in my hand and not too heavy.
  • I hadn't oiled it in almost a year, so I unscrewed it, got rid of the hairs jammed inside, gave it a quick oil (using coconut oil) and after reassembling it, it was cutting MUCH better.
  • ...the cord is a bit of a pain (it's too stiff), but that would all be OK if the clipper would be fast - but it is not.

What customers say about "Features"
Wahl 79600-2101 Hair Cutting Kit with 10 Guide Combs
  • The attachments are plentiful and comes with a guide on how to use what. Very simple.
  • The clippers with their guides allow for a fast precision hair cut.
  • Lots of comb guide options.
  • The product comes with plently of useful attachments and I love the addition of the minnie clipper as it makes it easy to perform fine trimming.
  • Cuts very easily and comes with lots of accessories.
  • These clippers were great while they lasted, but the motor in these clippers have quit working after one year of use.
  • As far as blade sharpness or the motors power it was average.
Oster 76023-510 Fast Feed Adjustable Pivot Motor Clipper
  • Smooth, fast and comfortable as well as durable...I feel they will last for quite a while!
  • After about seven months of use, (about once a month to cut my hair and my two sons), the adjustment arm broke again. Keep in mind, I knew it was fragile to begin with, so I made sure I did not apply too much pressure.
  • They work well for trimming but wish they came with guards. Would recommend if they are only being used for lining.
  • I am happy with it overall, it is a little louder than I would like.
  • it is fairly quiet, aside from a slight humming of the motor, very soft on the skin, and creates precise cuts.
  • I've since readjusted the blades to my pesonal liking and am now very happy with them. That being said these are variants of the same clipper with a T style blade attached. They still get hot after about five to ten minutes of use, just got to be quick when cutting.

What customers say about "Power"
Wahl 79600-2101 Hair Cutting Kit with 10 Guide Combs
  • Charged really fast.
  • It charges fast and it is comfortable to hold.
  • Fast charging time & long lasting battery life. Easy to use. Cuts well.
  • Best part is it's wireless, just charge it and your good to go.No cords getting in your way.
  • It charges very fast, it feels nice, sturdy, and strong in your hand, and although it's cordless, it is very powerful.
  • Only downside is the smaller trimmer runs on two AA batteries wish it had a rechargeable on it.
  • the smaller trimmer leaves a lot to be desired as it runs off double A batteries and does not have good speed.
  • The clipper runs well except there is no way of knowing how much charge it has or has left.
  • I like the freedom of no cord but, loses charge too quickly.
Oster 76023-510 Fast Feed Adjustable Pivot Motor Clipper
  • Has 8 foot power cord.
  • I never thought I would find one that works due to my incredibly thick stubble, however this one gets the job done! I guess the lower RPM / higher torque pivot motor is key for thick hair.
  • I clipped my husband's hair and it was fast, powerful, quiet and got the job done nicely - it was like cutting through butter, literally!
  • I'm happy to report that the Oster Fast Feed set is worth the extra money. The Wahl clippers were heavier and uncomfortable in my hand, the cord was thin and much shorter in length, the guards were flimsy
  • I have no issues with the trimmers except for they are slightly low on the power side. Other than that these have been a true gem for me.
