Wahl Rubbish

published

I have had Wahl in the past and been happy but this latest Lithium Ion clippers are just rubbish, takes up to an hour to complete haircut, the old corded model were far better but got old so I thought I would update, what a mistake, will not buy Wahl again they are rubbish.

Purchased in July 2019 at Shaver Shop Online store for $159.00.

Never buy wahl products.you gonna waste your hard earned money.

published

I bought wahl hair clipper ($80) from shavershop Melton. Was looking quite good and solid but Quality was so bad when I used it. Next day went back to shop replaced with expensive model. It was again wahl product($150)I chose. I tried at home. It was looking solid but with vibration one part of clipper just came off and fell on the floor than again I went back to shop to replace it and again same thing happened with third one. Was so angry and disappointed with wahl clippers. Then I end up buying VS clipper. Same price($150) but 1000 times better than wahl clipper and more warranty. I am loving VS clipper no issues at all.

Purchased in October 2019 at Shaver Shop.

Broke a few months out of warranty

published

I liked this trimmer while it worked. After about 2.5 years of normal use (6 months out of warranty) the on/off switch became flaky, and a few months later stopped working at all. I have bought a replacement from another brand at 1/3 the price and double the warranty.

Purchased in October 2016 for $189.00.

It's ok

published

Works ok as a beard trimmer but not as good as my Remington barbers pro for cutting your hair. The attachments also seem a bit flimsy.
What you are paying for with this model is the lithium ion battery which is suppose to last 4 hours of run time, but the battery light was flashing after about an hour of use so it's pretty hopeless.
The actual shaver itself does feel quite solid though, only used it once so not sure about longevity of it yet, will see how it goes.
It says made in america, but with parts made in China which is a little disappointing.

Purchased in August 2019 for $180.00.

Rubbish, don't waste your time and money.

published

Barely cut a single hair. Feels cheap, but isn't. Was supposed to be quiet but was louder than my 20 year old electric. Never, ever buying wahl products again. Complete Rubbish.

Purchased in July 2019.

Slow slow slow

Not trying to be funny, but by the the time I get a decent result with this thing, it's almost time to start over. Very disappointed with it, and would not recommend to anyone

Hopeless

published

I have bought shavers and toothbrushes from Shaver Shop in the past, so went in seeking advice on a beard trimmer. The sales guy (who had a beard!) recommended the Wahl. On first use, I found it didn’t trim my hair neatly, and snatched at the hairs a bit. Then the spring in the cutter broke, a common fault in these trimmers according to reviews here. So, that’s the last time I shop at Shaver Shop. The Wahl is now sitting in a drawer unused. I’ve now gone the proven route for a replacement, internet search plus looking here, then ordering online.

Really bad product

published

I asked for this for Christmas but didn't actually receive it until beginning of February. It lasted two months (so maybe eight uses in total) before it started making a rattling sound, I removed the head and found a broken spring inside. Took it to the shop and got a replacement, got that home and it wouldn't charge up! Got a full refund now looking on this site for better options. Can't believe this has such a high price tags and reading all these terrible reviews that don't surprise me at all.

Worked really well till it broke.

published

I’ve had this for maybe a year. It worked really well till it started making a strange rattling noise and started yanking my whiskers out by the roots. Ow! Probably deserved this for buying the cheapo option.

Totally useless wasted money

published

The shaver shop recommended it to me saying it’s a fantastic product,how far from being correct was totally opposite. This shaver is the worst product ever bought never again Wahl products must be made for display purposes only.


Terrible product considering the Price!

published

Just got wahl stainless steel lithium ion for my birthday (which i requested). Was using it for the first time, gave it a rinse, but then the power would not switch off! I had to plug the little plastic pin in the charger hole for the trimmer to stop. Even though it stopped, when trying to change the head to another blade, it was switched on again on its own, and I could have cut myself. And the plastics accessories are of so cheap quality that you wonder why you pay that much! A $50 trimmer is way better than this. Will try to return this product.

Terrible trimmer

published

Totally miss leading packaging. You can't even rinse it with a water not even 2 drops of water. Worst design ever. Total rip off. Complete waste of money and its made in usa with chinese manufactured things.

The worst trimmer bought ever

published

I Recommend not to buy this just waste of money does not trim properly
I am not going to buy any product from this company any more
Gillette 20 dollars trimmer is much better than this 170 dollars crap
There are no stars in minus that why I had to give 1 rating

Won't charge and motor in newer models is weak

published

Weak poorly made unit that does not charge properly and bogs out, ripping your hair even if you have thin hair. Yet another corner cutting company hanging on to nothing but their brand name, which won't last long if they continue selling sub standard products at double the price.

Overpriced poor attachments

published

Trimmer itself is good but as stated elsewhere the plastic attachments are cheap and nasty, not worth the money. Also for the price I'd expect the trimmers to be better sealed as they fill with hair while trimming which is poor.

Wahl Lithium Ion Stainless Steel Trimmer

published

The beard trimmer is powerful and the battery impressive with its power and stamina. the trimmer itself feels like a quality unit and well made. - the plastic length attachments however feel cheap, nasty and prone to breakage - they are a disappointment for an otherwise very nice product. Luckily I only need one of these attachments and plan not to wear it out by taking it on an off the shaver head repeatably. Honestly these plastic clip on parts are not made to last - What was Wahl thinking


Motors have been replaced?!

published

After purchasing my second trimmer I've discovered that they have cut corners and replaced the motor in the trimmer. The motor now constantly bogs out and tears at your hair! My hair is thin! this never happened with the old model which had a nice strong motor. Another company skimping out on quality and replacing products with sub standard garbage yet asking the same price.

Piece of rubbish

published

Bought it because it "looked the goods". Straight up it didn't have much power. 10 month on its in the bin and I'm back to my $30 trimmer that actually works. If you want a trimmer that hardly works and will almost send you broke to buy it, this is your one. Otherwise if you want to trim your beard and still be able to afford to go fishing on the weekend I'd stick with a cheap one that will still do the job. This product sucks.
