    So I bought a pair of Oster A5 two speed clippers last year at a REALLY good buy - $100 for a practically brand new pair with 6 new blades - I was thrilled as I haven't had them since I showed horses quite a few years ago - forgot how they cut hair like a knife through hot butter in comparison to the cheap brands and how light and quiet since I had the hoss cat sheers - I was wanting another pair to use for when the Oster's started getting warm or inbetween goats or for when I get "help" clipping but didn't want to spend money. Well here's what I found - and while I didn't want single speed I figured the price was decent enough for being in such good shape. So to make sure I'm not buying just because, what would you give for them to consider them a "good buy"?

    I'd probably give about 50-75.

    I would give up to $75 if they are in as good of shape as they appear to be.

    LOL not quite sure what I'd pay for them. I have a pair and after trimming about 5 goats I have had nothing but problems with them. I know a few other people who have had the same problem with them. I'm looking at my Nasco catalog as I type looking for a different brand LOL.

    osters are great -- couldnt see the logo but thats what they look like. I wouldnt spend more then 75 on them because you can get brand new ones for 115 from jeffers.

    I had an Oster A5 for about 10 years and it worked great. Bought a new one and it gets REALLY hot, I don't like the way you adjust the blades, I can't turn the darn thing on my new one (well it's a couple years old now). So, for the goats I got a Lister. It's great! Not cheap though. I got a longer blade so I can use it on the dogs! It's a little big, but I use it for the main body and the A5 for trimming, seems to work OK for that.
