Clippers Suitable For Light Work

8 posts in this topic

I'm looking for an inexpensive clipper to do ears, face, pads of a cocker spaniel and pads on a westie. I've got a friend who currently clips for me, but the hair between pads grows really fast, so it would make more sense to do it myself. Their coats are stripped with a mars coat king and I use the book Theory of Five to groom them the way I like, which I call a sports version of a show trim. They still have a nice tight coat, but shorter feather suitable for outside play.

I do not want their bodies clipped, so don't need clippers suitable for that sort of work. Just something nice for small areas and what I would think is relatively light work.

Suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Lots of views, no replies, which is a bit disappointing. By inexpensive I'm thinking around $100 if that helps. I've seen a few cheaper Wahls with a little trimmer included, but not sure how either would go. Probably prefer mains power to cordless, but overall to do 8 paws and ears and neck, that's about 20 mins, so cordless would work fine I think.

Years ago I bought a pet one from Big W & I think it was a Breville. It had a twelve month warranty on it, so when the first one packed it in, they gave me another...thought it was good value, so maybe you could check out Big W.

I got a cheapie from ebay that works just fine. It handles my cat's coat easily. Might be worth looking on ebay?

Thanks for the suggestions. I did see the cheap no brand ones on eBay and wondered how they would be.

I emailed clipperworld before posting here, thinking there would be people who show on here who would have hands on experience with hopefully a few different brands. I know the names of the better brands, but have read some poor reviews eg about the Walh Show pro, which was around the $100 mark.

I'd go with the wahl km-Ss as a minimum. It comes with a #10 blade which is what you need for ears, face and feet. Cocker spaniel hair can be very thick as well so something like a pro pet might be fine for a poodle x but would struggle on a cocker coat

There is one at petbarn that's very inexpensive and would work just fine for what you want to do. I would purchase a finer blade than the #10 that comes with it for between pads (#15 or #30)
