Andis is hands-down one of the best names in the business when it comes to dog clippers, and they continue to impress with new products and great customer service. All of the clippers I have seen from Andis have detachable blades (handy if you have dogs with different coats), so I did not include that in my descriptions. Here's a list of my top three, ending with my favorite.
First is compatibility. Some brands use interchangeable blades and some brands use specific blades that only fit their clippers and are only made by their manufacturer. These days most professional brands, like the ones featured in this article, use snap-on, interchangeable blades. For example, you could use Andis blades in Oster clippers. This is convenient if you happen to like one brand for clippers but a different brand for blades or if you are grooming multiple dogs of differing coats. You can just change to the preferred blade between dogs, instead of having another entire set of clippers.

Reason #2: Heat & Noise. If your pet is very shy, this can be a problem with cheaper clippers. Overheating clipper blades are a big problem because they can lead to injuries. Noise can scare your dog away and lead to trust issues. If you are running a dog grooming business, this can lead to liability issues. Stick to trustworthy brands such as Andis or Oster. Both are great. Let’s look into their line of quality, yet affordable dog clippers to find out which one is best for you.In looking at my options I'm thinking a two-speed clipper would be better for a double-coated dog? I'm also wondering about the importance of "strokes per minute." I looked at two Andis clippers similarly priced with strokes per minute at 2600-3400. Then there were two others (Ultra Edge and Super 2) that were 3400-4400spm but they were about $20-30 more ($146). Is it worth the extra money to buy the higher spm with my Eskie? I read the faster blade, the smoother the finish, but I also read some reviews on Amazon about these higher spm models getting hot very quickly... so my head is spinning! I guess if I bought the less expensive model (Andis + AG) I could spend some of my savings on extra blades and cooling spray. :) Which reminds me, should I get any comb attachments or anything else?Unfortunatly, this problem is not exclusive to inferior products. The Oster A5 Turbo also tends to overheat after just 5-10 minutes and then takes a generous 45 Minutes to cool down. Oster might have standardized dog clipper blades, but ..well, the Andis is just better in this regard. It simply runs cooler! One way around it is to simply change blades every 5 minutes or apply a special coolant you can buy. Still, i have to give this point to Andis as the AGC22360 is usable for a whopping 30 minutes and cools down faster!Most clippers come with blades, yet some don’t. Blades are usually marked either by closeness of cut or by their Oster number.(size 10, for example). While there is absolutely nothing wrong with any of the clipper brands, if you decide to purchase a brand of clippers other than an Oster, be sure that it’s equipped to use Oster-style blades. Many of the clippers are, but you need to be sure; or you may end up buying proprietary blades that may cost you much more. Keep in mind that if your clipper breaks, you’ll be forced to choose between buying new clippers of a brand that has to match the blades you already have or throwing out everything you have and starting from scratch. The quieter the clippers, such as the ones from Andis help keep your dogs stress free during grooming.
