Clippers Put to the Test

1. Wahl KM Cordless Clipper

Say goodbye to searching for the closest outlet and annoying untangling; our tester was completely converted from corded to cordless with the Wahl KM Cordless Clipper! Two hours of cord-free run time gave these clippers plenty of life to last a full body clip of our tester’s horse’s winter coat, and they also have a Quick Charge feature for the little jobs. You can use them with the cord if you need some more time, though our tester noticed that her clipping time was almost cut in half with these. With an option of 3,000 and 3,700 strokes per minute and the ability to house Wahl’s wide range of detachable blades, these clippers make it easy to get the job done.

2. Andis AGC Super 2-Speed Clipper

These Andis AGC Super 2-Speed Clippers have been our tester’s goto for all her clipping needs for years. As the name suggests, these have two speeds, 3,400 and 4,400 strokes per minute, making clipping a breeze no matter the season. The 14′ cord gives plenty of freedom so you can clip from the bridle path all the way down to the farthest fetlock. These clippers fit a variety of Andis’ detachable blades, so getting the right length is as simple as popping on your needed blade. Even after a few drops and some less than desirable clipping conditions (a dirty horse is a clipper’s worst enemy), our tester happily reports that these have done the job every time. Plus, they come with their own storage case!
