  • Laube Speed Feed???

    Okay, after my terrible Akita shavedown on Sunday, I am determined to get an awesome heavy duty clipper for shavedowns! I have been reading up on Bravuras, but it sounds like they break easily or are fussy. Can anyone enlighten me, please? Are the Laubes the same type of torque-control clipper? Is there a livestock clipper I should get instead? Can I use any blade on a Laube? (I would like the option to leave a max of what a #5 would leave, rather than clip really close to the skin, if this is even possible with this clipper.) I would likely reserve this clipper for ONLY shavedowns. If it is nice and quiet, I may also use it for dogs that are afraid of clipper noise. ANY tips would be ever so appreciated!!!!

    I'm glad you asked that. I was wondering the same thing watching the groomers at my salon struggle with heavily matted, dirty dogs like OES and having all kinds of issues. It seems to me that a separate set of clippers designed just for that task would make life a little easier in addition to saving your best pair. I was thinking horse clippers like the Double K - can't wait to see what others have to say/suggest.

      nevermind, I found an old post that I missed and answered by comb attachment question.

        the speed feed is more a trimmer, like a moser with an adjustable blade.

          Jen is right. The speedfeed is more timmer like...It has a dial a blade 9/10/15/30/40 and comes with combs. I have one and use it everyday...for the poodle face/feet cocker face ears and when I do 7 ao the 9 gets that hair in the place where the 7 doesn't get to well, ie the inside of legs the hock areas, it is pretty quiet. I do have 3 terrier x that flip, when they here the andis comming, I just use the speed feed with attachment and alls good. I don't believe I could groom without it!
