In the Model 10 Vs. Classic 76 Oster Clipper Review I want to start by saying they are both Quality Oster tools. Leading the clipper industry for over 60 years.They use the same blades so having both in your arsenal of tools will make things easy. Powerful, sharp, and durable are standard with the Oster name.
Here is a video showing both clippers running with examples of cutting hair. Notice the blades can be changed while running, this is an alignment necessity.
Each review is based on the specs and my personal experience with the item.
The Classic 76 is a larger frame clipper. This makes it bigger and bulkier while holding a powerful motor. It can cut through any type of hair with ease. For such a powerful motor it is surprisingly quiet. It comes with an extra long ten foot cord.
This clipper is a workhorse and with proper care it will last for many years.
The Oster model 10 is an upgrade from the Classic 76. It has a smaller frame for easier re-positioning. It is round for holding in any position. It is lighter and sports a more powerful motor which is a plus after holding it all day. It comes with the same sharp blades as the classic 76 and cuts fast. A break resistant housing and extra long cord help to make it a professional tool.
While doing the Model 10 Vs. Classic 76 Oster Clipper Review I realized the extreme quality these are made with. The model 10 was made first and they stopped making it when the classic came out. Now they brought this legendary lighter clipper back and it turned into my favorite again.
I personally keep a super sharp blade on the Classic 76 for take downs. I do my fades with the lighter Model 10. These two clippers with a professional trimmer do the bulk of my work. I would recommend either one to a professional or novice cutter. .
The clipper has a long and rich history, It was a hand powered device at first until the invention of the electric motor. My model 10 Vs. classic 76 oster clipper review show I would recommend either clipper. It will be a personal choice for you to decide which one you want.
