First of all, I would like to apologize for starting another clipper thread, but I can’t seem to find what I’m looking for.
This is my first year clipping horses other than my own. I have done around 15 clips so far this fall, with three more this week. I really enjoy clipping (as long as the horse isn’t trying to kill me), and think it is time to upgrade to a better body clipper. I would like break into the “professional” market in the future.
I am currently using three sets of clippers
Wahl Arco - for ears, face and sensitive spots
Andis AGC - for head, legs, and awkward spots
Oster Clipmasters - body clipping powerhouse
This set up was more than enough for my own well behaved horses. However, I find that most horses can’t handle the noise and vibration of the clipmasters without sedation. I end up having to use the Andis AGC for majority of the job. Although I love small and quiet, they are not powerful enough to handle multiple full body clips.
I am looking for suggestions for reliable, quality, horse friendly body clippers. I am leaning towards the lister stars or legends, but would like some other opinions before I make my decision. Double k? Laube? Andis progress?
Thank you all for your opinions
