A 2 in 1 corded and cordless animal clipper for dogs, cats, horses & livestock
You can use the clipper with the included charger cord plugged directly into the clipper

The whole kit comes with the clipper, a #10 Ultimate Competition Series blade, a 10-foot charging cord, a cleaning brush, blade oil, and instruction book.
For USA use only – not for international use
The clippers are not cheap
Although the motor is powerful with good torque, it would be good to have a higher stroke speed for the top speed, up somewhere around the 4000 SPM mark. Although this would mean the clipper blades might heat up more quickly so it’s understandable Wahl have kept the speed down and the torque up
The clipper is not cheap, but it is very unique with the fact it has a brushless motor corded operation and a lithium ion cordless operation 2 in 1 capability. The motor is powerful and can be used for heavier coats. Worth the money if you want a 2 in 1 clipper – just make sure you know the warranty and return duration and conditions in case you have any issues. The Andis AGC2 UltraEdge 2 Speed Pet Clipper is also worth a look as a 2 speed animal clipper alternative, although the Andis is a corded clipper only.
