Features and Specifications Analysis
Oster designed their fast feed clippers in 4 different colours “Burgandy, Purple, Silver Funkadelic, and Vibrant”. All the colors are very attractive, and Burgandy is a bit more popular in the Oster Fast Feed family. The Oster Fast feed clipper has a very ergonomic design and attractive interface. Oster designed the hair clipper in a very user-friendly, easy grip. So, it’s very comfortable to operate the device. It will fit in anyone’s grasp and feel very lightweight and secure.
The Oster fast feed is firstly popular for its special motor. The device comes with a powerful 12 amp pivoting motor drive. That ensures really a high-level power production of a hair grooming product. Moreover, it is a whisper-quiet pivot motor that stays silent and cool even after prolonged use. The enforced but silent motor must be a great feature to feel a hair clipper is a premium product. So, it is very efficient and approximately 2x more powerful than the available magnetic clippers.
Oster fast feed hair clipping kit comes with Cryogen-x stainless steel blade. The blade has 2 adjustable length settings with the lever from 000 to 1 size. So you can easily and quickly alter the trimming length without replacing the blade. The cryogen-x blade needs oiling to maintain properly to keep the device performance constant.
The Oster fast feed hair clipper has been designed for wet and dry hairs. The manufacturer used Cryogen-x steel blade on the clipper for sharper performance on any kind of hair. So, they promise to provide maximum performance on wet and dry hairs with their Oster fast feed hair trimmer. We also got a very reliable performance on the dry hair, but the performance was not surprising on the wet hair. We do not recommend using this clipper on wet hair as it is a corded device, and rather use a cordless hair clipper for wet hair.
8ft Long Cord
The power cord is a very important feature of a corded electric product.
The Oster fast feed corded hair clipper comes with an 8 feet long power cord. This cord can give you enough versatility to cut hairs long distances from the electric outlet.
The manufacturer recommends replacing the blades after 18 months of use. Certainly, the blade’s life depends not on the use period but on the frequency of shaving habit. You will understand when you need to replace the blade when the blade performance becomes dull jam up. A replacement accelerates the device’s performance and feels like a new product. So, keep your device’s performance steady by replacing a new blade that will not empty your pocket.
What’s the replacement blade, and where to buy it?
The Oster Fast Feed replacement blade model is 930-50, and it is available at any showroom or Amazon. You can easily purchase the replacement blade from Amazon.
There is miscellaneous feedback over the Oster fast feed hair trimming kit’s performance. Most are positive, and some negative views came because of the device’s inefficient use. Although the using functions are pretty user-friendly, some newbie finds it worthless. In our view, the performance would get a surprising outfit as we know most of the hair clippers on the market. The adept motor drive of the device gets the maximum priority while talking about the device’s performance. Oster fast feed hair clipper runs in a premium way without making disturbing noise. The device stays very relaxed after prolonged use and does not become hot. It is an efficient hair trimming kit for all kinds of hair, even wet. Some users said the device spared hair on very thick hair and discouraged buying the device while you have thick hair. We also agree with their opinion that the device’s performance is unreliable on extremely thick hairs and would rather go with the Oster Classic 76 universal motor clipper. In view of performance, we give 80 out of 100 to the Oster fast feed clipper.
The Oster fast feed hair clipper kit comes with 3 hair cutting guides (1/2″, 1/4″, 3/8″) and 1 hair blending comb. With the guide combs, you will get some versatility in haircutting with the clipper. But some users said these are not enough for short to long hair cutting as the device offers only 10 cutting lengths with and without the guides. We recommend adding the Oster Professional 10 Comb Set with your Oster clipper for more cutting-length options. In some reviews, users said the Oster guide combs are only responsible for disliking the product as they are very cheap in quality. They said the Oster guide combs are shaky, do not feel good in quality, and are fragile. So, they rather recommend the Andis Master Combs that fit perfectly on the Oster fast feed clipper’s head.
The only disappointing thing about the Oster fast feed clipper set is it comes with only 1-year warranty. The warranty period should be longer. However, the Oster grooming product manufacturing company will replace or repair your product if you find any manufacturing defect or fault in performance within 1 year after the actual purchase date.
- Silent but powerful motor
- Easy to use
- Very sharp and quick performance
- Long cord
- Great outfit
- Stays balanced and cool
- 1 Year warranty only
- Fragile guide combs
- Blade becomes hot after prolonged use
The Oster fast feed is a mid-range hair clipper kit that may fit your grooming desire. It features a noticeable motor drive for efficient performance and a satisfactory outfit. The ergonomic textured housing design feels premium on grasp and comfortable to operate. Some disappointing issues are also confessable by Oster, like fragile guide combs, dull at extremely thick hair, and blades becoming hot. To get rid of these issues, you can rather purchase the Oster Classic 76. Overall, the Oster fast feed is great as a mid-range hair clipper.
