Andis ProClip AGC2 2-Speed Detachable Blade Clipper, Professional Animal Grooming, AGC, Black (22340)
Why Is This Product Here? Durable + Reliable + Heavy duty
The Andis AGC2 ProClip Animal Clippers are made for groomers, but pet parents also love these clippers. The Andis is a super duty trimmer that is designed for all sorts of coat types and furs but excels with tougher coats and furs. The rotary motor is durable enough for thick coats (poodles) and mats. Also, these clippers are quiet and will not scare your animals when it is time for a haircut.
The rotary motor provides two speeds; 2,700 SPM and 3,400 SPM (strokes per minute) which is an excellent feature for groomers that handle different breeds throughout any given day. The trimmers weigh in at 17.5 oz, which is on the heavier side, but most users do not complain that the device is too heavy. The device also has a cord, which is a matter of preference for most groomers. However, the cord is 14 ft long, so there is no worry of running out of length. For those who do not like corded trimmers, the 14 ft heavy duty cord may become cumbersome. Also, having a cord negates all worries of loss of power that many pet owners experience with cordless trimmers, and there are no batteries to keep charged.
Motor: When it comes to purchasing clippers, the motor is one of the most critical components to consider. The types of coats the animals you will be grooming dictates the kind of motor you should buy. Which is why the Andis ProClip AGC2 is a perfect trimmer for professional groomers who trim all different types of coats and fur. The rotary motor is strong enough to work through thick hair and mats. Two-speed, rotary motor runs at 2,700 SPM and 3,400 SPM. The two speeds that these clippers offer is also great for groomers or pet owners with different breeds of pets since a low speed can be used for a short-haired dog and the high speed is needed for tougher, thicker fur. The motor is sealed and therefore maintenance-free; no oil or greasing of internal components necessary.
Weight and Ergonomics: The clippers weigh 17.5 oz and are 7.13 inches long. Though this device is heavier than most comparable clippers, users report that there is no discomfort after long periods of use and that it fits well in most hands. Also, the casing is shatterproof in case the clippers are dropped or squeezed too tight.
Cord/Cordless Charge: 14 ft heavy duty cord so there is no need to charge. The cord is long enough to maneuver around without the worry of running out of length.
Maintenance: Oil blades as needed. Blades may need cooling spray during long periods of use.
Heat and Noise: Customers report that the clippers heat up pretty quickly. Most recommend a cooling spray or a quick break to let them blades cool down. Reports consistently say that the clippers are quiet.
