About to buy a dryer that needs to manage all coat types and be quieter than our Liberty Ultraforce.

Interested in hearing about other brands.

Thanks!

I have a Double K Xstream... It's great but I don't know what the noise levels are in comparison to the Liberty. I use it on my keeshond and finnish lapphund. I love it!

I have a liberty stand dryer and hate it. Too noisy and takes too long to dry the dogs so I have now gone back to my old barell force dryer. Don't get quite the finish but does them in 1/2 the time

Simpson Supa Jet is getting some reports! What are the noise levels like and what are the heat ranges?

Thanks!

I have my Liberty Ultraforce for blasting and my Beacon MkII for straightening and heat.

This is my second Beacon. I love it.

I have the liberty ultra force - its good with big hairy dogs in warm weather -it's loud - waiting for it to warm up in winter was the reason I lashed out and got the CM2H from Melbourne Dog Center - I love it - not cheap but is fantastic. Has heat and dial to control how much force is used. Great on any breed and any coat type.

Have had a Liberty and another imported from US, (can't remember the name!!) when I had a mobile dog grooming service, they were both effective but very very noisy. Now have an Oldfield Maxidry Master which am very happy with, it has heat control.

The Simpson dryer is a fluff type dryer and ideal for low velocity air drying and styling. Dryer such as the Double K, Oldfield and Melbourne Dog Centre dryers are the forced air type, these are generally noisier and are suited to blast drying and blowing out the undercoat. Unfortunately there is not an ideal dryer for all applications. The Melbourne Dog Centre dryers are grossly over priced both with the initial cost and also the servicing charges. The Double K twin motor dryer is the best value on the market for around $500-$600

I've got the Double K Airmax Xtream for my Jap Spitz and Sibes. It gets them dry in next to no time, and I'm pretty happy with it. Having said that - it doesn't give my Jap the 'fluffiness' that he gets when his groomer does him (she uses an Oldfield dryer, I think).

I have the Razor heated barrel dryer from clipperworld.
It is fairly quiet compared to some I have heard, it has variable speed and a heater.
I use it on smooth collies and today used it on a samoyd, worked very well.
