Differences With The Oster Cool Comfort
The Cool Comfort has a new soft-grip material on the clipper housing that helps to reduce hand fatigue and to stay cooler, and is designed not to peel
The Slim is about 0.2 ounces lighter than the Cool Comfort
The Slim Clipper comes in different colors
The Slim has a high efficiency motor, while the Cool Comfort has a Patent Pending, angled eccentric drive system & precision calibrated motor
Apart from that their performances are similar
You have to buy other blades separately
There are important internal parts made of plastic in this clipper such as around the screws in the blade assembly – these plastic parts seem likely to break or fail
Some blades and sometimes the clipper unit heats up fast
Until Oster improve a few small design flaws, there’s better value out there for multiple speed electric clippers. The Andis AGC2 corded clipper is a pretty good value for money versatile pet clipper
