Dr Harry Clippers Are they any good?

Has anyone had experience with these?

From memory the Dr Harry ones are made by Breville, have a fixed blade and combs. Hard to keep clean and sharpen and limited in what they can do. Only person I know who bought them upgraded to "real" clippers shortly afterwards.
You can pick up one speed Andis ones for not much more than that - changable blades etc.

You are better off spending the extra money on a professional Wahl KM clipper for around $220. I would not buy the Andis pet clipper kit; it is better than the Dr Harry but will not cut all hair types and is more of a trimmer than a clipper.

So that is not the one that Poodlefan recommended? Or it is the one but you dont like it? Or there was a joke somewhere that I just didn't get?
This person is elderly, and adopted Pearl who came into DAS a matted clump of pain. She has a soft, dense, slightly wavy coat. She (the owner) lives in Gundagai and so has limited shopping options. She has just clipped Pearl and says she did it with hand clippers . We had these for our Schnauzer when we were kids - this poor womans hand must be about to drop off!
Does anyone have a link to the clippers already mentioned?

I think poodlefan would be referring to these
rather than 'pet clippers' that Paula posted.

She only wants them for trimming her Brittany - they'll probably be fine for that. I'd certainly want something with a better motor for full body clips.
