Wahl Bravura Clipper
It's so nice to be able to find a great product. This clipper works perfectly!!! I love it. Because it's quiet, my dog wasn't half as scared around the face area as he otherwise would be with loud clippers. The Wahl Bravura clippers were a bit pricey but because they worked so good it allowed me to do a pretty good job on my dog, which will save me money in the long run. The cordless part is a definite plus too. It kept the charge during the entire time. I am very happy I made this purchase.

Very nice - Cool running and quiet. Great price, and excellent value.
I did a great deal of research before settling on the Bravura for my two cats. The Bravura was recommended by groomers for being quiet, runs cool, cordless and the blade settings are contained within the clippers - no changing blades for different lengths.
Not quite the "heavy duty" selection according to groomers but I found it perfectly suited to my needs.
It worked through the American Medium hair like butter. Struggled a little with my Persian cat's mats but they were extreme mats so I consider it to have done very well given the circumstances. We moved slowly and carefully and it did just fine. Once we were through the mats it managed the fine Persian hair quite nicely. I don't recommend a blade length any shorter than 10, as 9 (the shortest setting) was a bit close for my liking.
Blade lengths are NOT shown on the device, I had to do some Googling to determine which was which. "9" is the farthest setting to the right. (You can see the blades sliding forward and backward - the shortest setting moves the blade right up to the end of the clippers.) I found that the middle setting was a good length for my kitties. (Lion cut for the Persian and sanitation cut for the American Medium - although the shortest setting would suffice for a sani cut)
You do get a little more power when you leave the cord attached which is a good to note for those only interested in the cordless aspect of this product.
I recommend working through CLEAN fur - even if you have mats, bathe first! (Dry thoroughly) The difference is amazing.
Easy to clean and store the clippers afterward. I highly recommend this product. Foster and Smith had the best price on the net and it came extremely quickly!

Best clippers I have owned
This is by far the best set of clippers I have purchased. I shave 4 animals & it will keep the charge the entire time to complete all of them. The clippers are very quiet when using so makes the animals feel at ease. I have owned many brands but this by far is the best.

My neighbor has these clippers to groom her two standard poodles and let me try them on my maltipoo for a test run. I bought my own, have been using them several months and love them. They are so quiet my dog hardly notices and she doesn't mind being groomed at all. Drs. Foster and Smith had the best price I found.
