although it stated out of stock at time of order, I did not wait too long to receive it. The clipper is heavy, I guess it is because this is an older type of clipper.
But for this price, it feels more solid than I expect. It is a little loud and vibrating, but my dog does not really mind. I use it to trim some tummy hair and paws
in between full grooming, so I believe it will do a good job. I selected this item because the price is good and I also researched other websites and found some good reviews. If you need a good clipper and you are SURE about its performance for a much higher price, go for the newer design/lighter weight/quieter one. Otherwise,
this one seems to be very good value as I got shipping free.

Worked very well considering that it was used on a border collie mix with very thick and long hair. It also takes practice as well as being careful to not cut too short. Great price and it works. Note that it works better with the combs taken off, with such thick and long hair, but requires a steady hand. My dog always seems much cooler and more active with less hair when summer comes around.
