I don't usually write reviews for anything I've bought through Amazon, but felt I should write a few lines about this product, with regard to a specific breed.
Labradoodle owners take note .....
Whilst these clippers are indeed very good, and worthy of the positive reviews here, I thought I should mention that they are NOT suitable for all breeds of dogs, so that potential buyers are forewarned.
I have a miniature Australian Labradoodle, with a hair / fleece / wool mix coat, and these clippers are not suitable for her type of coat. To be fair, they coped with the regular curly hair around her head, but didn't fare well (they didn't fare at all!) with the rest of her body or leg `hair'. At one point the clippers struggled so much that the blades actually pulled right off the main device.
From personal experience, I found that the teeth on these clippers are too close together (they are the same as on the personal grooming clippers), and I see no difference between these dog grooming clippers and Wahl's (human) personal hair clippers, other than that the motor is a little more powerful.
As cordless clippers, even on full charge, they will not cope with this type of Labradoodle coat. Even plugged into the mains, they only worked on her coat without any attachments, meaning that her coat had to be cut almost down to the skin.
On a more positive note, they worked perfectly well on my Yorkie.
