    I have had Shearmaster Listers for 6 years and love them. Best clippers I have ever owned.

    Sunbeam (oster) and Heiniger here. The Heiniger is a little more comfortable to use but not as well made as my older Sunbeams. Nothign tops a cable or shaft driven handpeice for shearign though.

    Well you guys, that was a vote for each!
    Yes, I agree Ross, have one of them big 'ol things! Shew, talk about intimidating! I know it never gets hot and all but just looking at it makes me dream of owning hand clippers.......
