Andis Pulse ZR vs Supra ZR: Summary, & Which To Get

It’s very simple:

– the Pulse ZR is a pet hair clipper designed for pet hair and fur

– the Supra ZR is a human hair clipper designed for human hair


Pet hair and fur clippers usually have motors and blades (usually wider with differently spaced teeth) designed for thicker and coarser animal hair, and even double coats.

Some people manage to use a pet hair clipper on human hair on the lower speeds effectively, but that is not what they are designed for.

Human hair clippers are designed for softer and finer human hair, and certainly aren’t meant for pet hair.
