Fall is here and it is time to replace my old clippers. I searched around and decided that I needed a more powerful, better quality clippers to service my very hairy horses. I read many reviews of the Lister Star, and found the best price at my local Tractor Supply.
READ THE DIRECTIONS. This is very important on any set of clippers. Also, be sure to bathe your horse and allow the coat to dry. The blades are designed to work in a very specific way, on a specific tension setting. They have to be oiled every 5-10 minutes of use in 8 different places, with the provided oil. The say to NOT use the cooling/lube sprays. The directions are easy to follow and there is a diagram of where the oil need to go.
The Grid Approves!
These Clippers Rock!
I was very happy with the results. The clippers are a bit loud, but they out perform any other clippers I have used. They glided through my thick warmbloods coat like butter. I oiled frequently, and the blades did not get hot. Priced at $259.99, they are a great value.
