Clipper is made in Hungary, and blades are made in the USA


For USA use only – not for international use

Although the motor provides good torque and power, the speed on the second setting could be quicker. It is 3500 compared to the the KM10’s 3700 SPM

The warranty is a 2 year limited warranty compared to the KM10’s 5 year limited warranty

The clippers are not cheap

As of the end of 2017, there seems to be some (not majority) defective units going around. There is a chance you may get one. Make sure you know the return and/or warranty policy before you order.


The clipper is good in theory for beginner groomers who want a lower speed clipper. However, for the price, we think you can find better value 2 speed clippers like the Andis AGC2 UltraEdge 2 Speed Pet Clipper
