Rated 4 out of 5 by StNick Pretty good clippers
Got these to trim a 6 year old 100lb German Shepard. So a big dog with a lot of fairly long hair. Used the 1/2" guide, but his undercoat was so thick that the points of the guide would push the hair and not let it get to the blades. So I cut 4 of the 7 points leaving the outer two and the middle one. That allowed me to cut better, but it was still a slow process. I fault the clippers less than this just literally being the nature of the "beast"! I spent about 1.5 hours doing the initial clipping until the clippers had run out of juice. I plugged it in to charge and tried again about 2 hours later, but they weren't charged enough. So I tried the next day and was able to finish him up to a point that I was satisfied. I have a pair of wahl clippers I use on my own hair, and it's guides fit these(probably both made by same company) so I used it's unaltered 1/2" guide the second round to get a more even cutting on some spots. My personal groomer is cordless(although lithium battery, I believe this units are probably Ni-Cd), but I had a corded unit in the past. I think a corded unit might be the way to go if you have a thick haired dog like mine as 110v just gives so much more power over the lower voltage of these cordless units. I like the cordless so I can get a long way from the house to drop the trimmings and not have to worry about cleaning or wind blowing them around. I may try a final round with this unit plugged in to see it that helps with power and maintaining speed.

I purchased this product based on the fact that it had an online user guide but there seems to be an access code missing, where do I get this code

Rated 5 out of 5 by 2313 Worked great ONE time. I gather the battery went dead. Can anyone tell me where to get a charger or cord. I cannot find one and the clippers did not come with a charger.....Help!?

Just gave our labradoodle his summer haircut. This worked so well on him I couldn't believe it! This trimmed for at least 40 minutes on one charge and never got hot to the touch. It comes with 4 guides and a maintenance kit. I love this trimmer! Thanks, Sunbeam, for making my life easier!
