Question about Oster 76076-010 Hair Trimmer

Difficulty shaving Spanish Water Dog

I have old Oster clippers. After experiencing difficulty shaving the dog, I had sharpened the #10, #4 and #5 blades. The difficulty continues. Perhaps my expectations are too high. I anticipated results like shearing a sheep. Instead I must make multiple passes which add to the dogs anxiety. Are these old clippers not the answer? Or should I lower my expectations?

The biggest issue with clipping animals (except sheep which use completely different clippers) is that once you have sharpened blades, you need to go slow and keep then blades oiled and cooled. The KOOL spray by oster works great and the clippers you are using are a good reliable brand and model. When clipping my cocker/schnauzer cross, I have a 1/2 inch guard on it (have to use a 30 or 40 blade with the guards) and it takes about an hour. I stop every 10 minutes or so to let them cool down, spray and oil them.

I was shaving my dog using oster ultra cordless clipper, and suddenly the clipper is not cutting hair instead it grabs hair. I opened it and clean out hair under blade, but unfortunately, i did not help.


With most clippers, after an amount of use they need to be cleaned then oiled. Most sets come with some amount of oil for your clippers. Otherwise you can purchase it separately. This should fix the problem.

But once the plastic clip that mounts the blade to the unit brakes you are screwed. Oster can't supply that anymore. You can always sharpen the blades and make sure you keep them lubricated going forward. Google sharpening clipper blades to find instructions.
