    After using a wonderful hand-me-down Oster Lucky Dog clipper on my Australian Shephard/Lab mix (medium length hair, VERY thick coat), the clippers finally gave up and it was time to find another clipper. Since my dog has such a thick coat I did not want to purchase underpowered clippers and deal with the resulting frustration. I finally decided to take the plunge and purchase the Golden A-5 Single Speed Clipper with a #10 blade. After receiving the clipper I took my dog outside for her first trim with a new clipper. Her coat had grown about two inches since her last cut, and I was expecting to have a similar cutting experience to that of the Lucky Dog- I was not expecting what actually happened. I began to clip my dog, and the clipper really did go through her coat like a hot knife through butter- suddenly the 40 minute job (I have a squirmy dog) was cut in half- to be fair, it took 15 minutes at the most. The noise is not loud, and the dog did not seem to mind the clippers at all. (Her squirmy-ness has much to do with squirrels and birds visiting the yard, and not with clipping.) This is a wonderful product, and if it lasts as long as the Lucky Dog I will never need another clipper!

    The Oster A5 is professional grade. We are dog breeders with five adult dogs, and when we have a litter of puppies there are days where I might clip ten or more dogs in an afternoon.

    You might be wondering why not just get the less expensive single-speed A-5. The answer is that the high speed cuts the best, but the low-speed makes less noise. So, for dogs who are scared by the clippers, use the low-speed when you are working around the face or ears. It’s less intimidating to the dog. Then kick it in to high speed for the rest of the job.

    The other review I read about this product complained that the Oster A-5 worked great out-of-the-box, but then stopped working well after a few uses. This is a typical complaint from users who do not read the owners manual. The manual makes it quite clear that this will happen if you do not properly clean and lubricate the blades after each use. Also, it’s helpful to buy a can of Kool-Lube and spray some of that on to the blade once or twice during the grooming of each dog. It’s also recommended that you not trim dogs with dirty hair or wet hair, as this will dull your blades. The moral of the story is that if you want this tool to work as well after 100 uses as it did out-of-the-box, you’ve got to give the dog a bath first, get the dog completely dry, and clean and lubricate the clipper blades BEFORE you begin clipping the dog. If you take shortcuts, your blades will get dull much sooner.

    Anyway… great product, if used according to the directions!

    This review is from: Oster 78005-010 Golden A5 Single-Speed Clippers (Misc.)

    Recommended by my veterinarian for clipping Persian Cats I breed, I also highly recommend this clipper.

    It will clip off even severe Persian cat matting.
    It is to be used with Oster #7 Blade. (if you are interested in grooming hard to clip long hair and double haired cats, especially Persian cats.

    Again, I’d like to mention it is Made In America !
