Wahl Clip N Trim 23 Piece Clipper Kit with Powerdrive Clippers with Adjustable Taper Control and built-in Close Cutting Finishing Trimmer.Amazon.com
Designed for the do-it-yourself stylist, the Wahl Clip-n-Trim set includes a heavy-duty clipper/trimmer and a full set of attachments. Durably built, the clipper is easily adjusted and unclogged with a side-mounted thumb-control lever. Its Powerdrive Cutting System handles fine or very thick hair, and the high-carbon steel blades are self-sharpening for years of efficient results. The clipper also includes a clever flip-over trimmer for precise definition of sideburns and necklines. Should the unit slip out of your hand, the trimmer attachment is designed to pop off, in order to avoid breaking. Wahl includes a veritable smorgasbord of attachments and accessories along with a sturdy storage case for the whole set. Eight guide combs range in length from 1/8 to 1 inch; the other two are suitable for tapering at the left and right ear. Additional styling tools include a barber comb, flattop comb, cape, neck duster, and scissors. Wahl provides for maintenance and instruction too, with blade oil, a blade guard, a cleaning brush, and an English/Spanish manual. Made in the USA, the clippers carry a 5-year warranty. –Emily BedardAmazon.com Product Description

    I bought this for a bit more at Walmart becuase I needed it asap. My hair grows back at an incredible rate and if I don’t trim it within 2-3 weeks, it looks BAD.

    This model featured a Powerdrive system that’s supposedly more powerful at cutting thick hair more smoothly. It also sports this special detail trimmer that pops out and attaches to the trimmer blade like a silencer for a rifle. The only difference is that it makes 3 times more noise than the regular trimmer. It was so loud I couldn’t stand it buzzing next to my ear.

    I tried oiling it to no avail, it’s just very noisy and vibrates a lot. The regular trimmer is just like the old Wahl I had. In fact this trimmer looks and feels JUST like the old Wahl I had from the mid 90s.

    I didn’t feel any difference in how smoothly it cut – it just got really hot really quickly.

    But it’s new and it has a 5 year warranty. It would pay for itself in the 3rd or 4th haircut at home.

    UPDATE: After the 3rd cutting, the trimmer appears to be slightly quieter and doesn’t get as hot.

    I oiled the blades and made sure it was clean.

    The small trimmer attachment got a bit quieter but I found that if I just wear earplugs I can handle the noise. No Big deal at all.

    The hair trimmer already paid for itself and I’m getting really nice and clean haircuts by myself.

    UPDATE:

    After about the 10th use, the longer trimmer guides vibrate and the smaller “fuzz hair” adapter vibrates right off of the main trimmer body.

    It still cuts great for such an inexpensive trimmer. It does the job of an industrial strength trimmer and after about 3 haircuts, it pays for itself. I can pretty much get a brand new trimmer set each year and still save over going to a hair salon/barber shop.

    My hairstyle isn’t complicated: Guide #4 for the top, Guide #1 for the sides. High and tight. I see no reason to pay a barber ten dollars to do the same thing.

    This is the very first trimmer I ever used. I was tired of waiting in line and paying what I can do at home in 15 minutes. The trimmer is fairly easy to use and requires minimal maintenance. (I just brushed the hair off after each use.)

    It would deserve a full 5-star if the latch of flip-over fine trimmer didn’t break the first time I used it. The fine trimmer still works with my thumb pressing to hold it in place. Since then, I have given and received haircuts 20+ times using it (that’s what starving graduate students do other than subsisting on Ramen noodles.) When I save enough money, I think I will simply get a beard trimmer to do the fine touches. After all, one can’t expect a $20 tool to do everything.

  3. I got this with some trepidation. My wife has no experience cutting hair and, even though I prefer a very simple cut, I had my doubts. This cutter was so easy to use, however, that I need not have feared. The instructions were simple and clear and the clippers work well. They were inexpensive and it seems that after two more cuts, these things will pay for themselves.

    I could not be more happy with this trimmer. It cuts very well and feels much more sturdy than any other trimmer I held when shopping around. The cutting blades are solid metal screwed to the body; the power switch turns on with a meaty, satisfying click; and the plastic guide combs snap on snugly. I agree with other reviewers that the detail trimmer seems superfluous, but it, too, works well.

    This trimmer set makes giving yourself a haircut fairly easy. I like being in control of cutting my hair just the length I like it and I can maintain the perfect length in minutes. The Wahl trimmer unit is heavy duty, looks like it will last forever and the attachments for determining hair length just snap on. I bought it just after getting a regular haircut 4 weeks ago and I have already used it three times to maintain the length I like.
