4 tips on how to groom your dog:
Properly prepare the coat before a clipping by bathing, drying, brushing and removing any mats.
Have the pet stand on a towel so they will feel more secure & clean up is easier.
Examine the skin for any cuts, lumps, or sores and avoid these sensitive areas.
Pull the skin tight, creating a flat surface for smooth strokes. Never clip into a fold of skin

AWESOME -- but the 'skin' wears out!Let me start by saying I have had a wide variety of clippers and these by far are my favourite pair yet! They cut like butter, they're super quiet (I have the best results with puppies out of my whole salon), and they're strong and easy to use.
My only complaint is that after a few months of use, the outer rubber layer began to peel. There are a few major spots missing and bubbled up now. These are for professional use, so I didn't expect the outside to fall apart. They look pretty bad, but they work so well I couldn't imagine going without 'em.
I hope one day they come out with a replacement skin for it, and then it will be perfect!

5 if it would stop cracking inside.The blue part on this broke on mine in under a week(4 grooms), I got a replacement in orange and it also broke in a week flat(2 grooms). Now I have to send it back for a refund, meanwhile I have a grooming business which has to be put on hold. I absolutely love these as far as light weight. They are easier to hold for me than my older model A5 turbo. They are very quiet and easy to work with under their body but they have to be supported around the top part or the plastic pieces that hold the cover over the engine, breaks due to vibration and normal wear and tear.

Not A Good Buy If You Can't RepairI won a pair of these for one of the contests on here. I loved them so much I touted them to everyone in my salon and anyone else I could get to listen to my sales pitch. Slim, quiet, easy to handle and powerful. Problem is about 5 months of heavy use the cord went out. No problem, I'm no stranger to replacing Andis cords on a regular basis. Thought this would be an easy deal. I was wrong. This item has been out of stock for months upon months and my clipper repair guy (Jeff Andrews of Northern Tails Sharpening) has not even seen this item available to him. My poor a a6 are sitting unused in my locker with no hope of being freed from their 6 month prison stint anytime soon. So maybe a not so great buy if you can't get them repaired!

Awesome!!I've always been an Andis super 2speed user. I was recently given these clippers at my Train the Trainer session at SSG. I have only used them for one day but let me tell you I am a convert!!! I have always bought a variety of blades, but usually stuck with Andis for clippers, I am now in the market for the Volt as soon as they become available. I will say that my andis blades are a bit tight fitting on the latch, but everything works amazingly. Clippers are light and easy to turn on and off. The blades run a bit hotter then normal but I've got a lot of extras so it was easy for me to switch out.! Thank you so much Oster!!!! I will be placing an order for blenders and the volt very soon!!!

Great but parts are hard to findI received mine as a gift when getting training in Phoenix. I love them. I have used them non stop since February. They are lighter and easier to hold than my andis ultra edge. But I dropped them and the case broke. They still work but are a little louder. I wish the top piece I need was in stock so I could order and use them again.

DC Petropolis from
A6 hreat machine and terrible Outer shellGot this clippers less than a year ago. Few weeks after daily use the outher case, the black rubber started to wear-out. Few months and the dark silver plastic part where the name of brand is broke from the outer housing and I had to glue it to keep on working. Unfortunately few days after I glued it, the rest of the top housing started to crack...I suppose because of normal clippers vibration. NOTE the clippers never fall from my table or anywhere else. I called Oster to inquire about fixing it, and I was told it would cost me $51 + shipping...which would be around $7. So ...be aware you'll spend to buy these and son after you'd have to occur in extra expenses to fix it.
Also Note there are other reviews about the same issue.

Terrible qualityThe quality of these clippers is not very good. I had to send them back several times to fix manufacturing issues and the last time I sent them back, I was given a warranty of only 3 months. The front of the clipper continuously pops off, allowing hair to get inside of the motor, causing the clippers to not fuction properly. My clippers are now being held together by scotch tape until my new clippers arrive.

All I can say is WOW !WOW !! I needed a clipper around Christmas -- I'm glad I waited for the A6 Model for the January release! Here's what I like ..
Cord - has good length without it being cumbersome or heavy
Ergonomic - My hands are very small .. Fits comfortably and has a non-slip texture. I'm sure larger hands would find it "fits" also.
Does not get hot - I've clipped down large Doodles, and the housing has not become hot, even using the highest speed. I have to remind myself to check the blades for the heat.
Releash latch for the blades, small and hidden, yet easy to use. Blades go on and off quickly.
3 speeds - I can adjust the speeds with ease, and it has clipped through the nastiest pelted shih tzu coat I have ever seen with absolutely no trouble.
I've used the A5 single speed since the early '90's, and if this clipper holds up as it's predecessor , it will have been one of the best purchases I've made from Oster. Does it sound like I love it? .. I LOVE THE A6 !!!
