What kidn are you looking at?  We use Oster clippers and clip about 30 goats at least 12 times per year for shows.  We use a set of smaller clipper on the legs.

Just curious, but why are you stuck using those blades? They're way too big for goats IMO.

After doing a quick Google search, they look like they *may* fit Wahl clippers as well as the Lister clippers. Your best bet is to call a grooming supply company and ask them.

Our large Oster clippers that we use for our show steers are OLD...I know my husband used them back when he was in 4-H. They're still working great. Can't speak for longevity of small clippers or newer models as we haven't purchased any yet. Need to do that soon.

Why don't you ask your FFA advisors or the 4H group what clippers they use..then you would know what clippers to buy that fit those blades.  Just a suggestion, seems pretty logical.  Smiley

I use Andis clippers....I like them...but I don't think the blades you have will fit them.  I got them from Highland Livestock supply....you can check out their website and possibly find the WAHL clippers your blades would work with, I am sure they would have them on the website.

So then you're saying you can test the blades to see if they fit any of your clippers (at least to get an idea of what would fit and what wouldn't). Our point is that we can't tell you for sure what will or won't fit those blades. And since you're concerned about longevity, two of us have mentioned Oster.
