Oster Fast Feed Review – A Great Performing Hair Clipper

overall rating:4.5

oster fast feed

The Oster Fast Feed Adjustable Pivot Motor Clipper is a mid-range hair clipper that produces a professional finish at a very reasonable price.

It is used extensively by barbers and hair stylists and has become a firm favorite for anyone who cuts hair occasionally.

It looks and feels like a top of the range clipper, and with its extremely sharp blade, it produces a nice, even cut.

Features:

The Motor

The Oster Fast Feed has a good, mid range, 12 amp pivot motor which is more powerful than the majority of clippers on the market, that generally run on an 8 amp motor.

The difference in performance is significant.

The Whisper Quiet™ motor retains a reassuring ‘hum’ that is loud enough to know you have the backing of a decent engine.

The Blade

Simply choose the length you require. From a very close 000 shave to a medium length trim (size 1).

The benefit of not having to change blades makes for a simpler, quicker cut.  

I don’t like shaving my hair when it’s wet but these clippers can easily handle all types of hair; wet or dry, Afro or thin.

Accessories

oster-fast-feed accessoriesThe Oster Fast Feed also comes with the usual complement of:

  • Blade oil
  • Cleaning brush
  • Blade guard
  • 4 guide combs – blending, ½”, ¼”, 3/8”

I recommend you use the Andis Magnetic Guard Comb Set (As pictured below).

These guards will fit most clippers and work really well on the Oster Fast feed.

Product Details

The Fast Feed is very robust, and has a good grip, which is reassuring when cutting hair.

It is a very lightweight clipper at just 1 pound in weight ( less than 1/2 kg).

Dimensions – 6 x 3 x 10.5 inches

Supplied with a robust, 8 ft power cord.

Pros

  • Easy to use and control.
  • Performs well on all hair types.
  • Good, (near silent) pivot motor for regular use.
  • Just 1 Adjustable blade. You don’t have to worry about changing blades.
  • Excellent value for money.

How To Zero Gap Your Oster Fast Feed

If you want an even closer cut, you can zero gap your Fast Feed.

This means you align the moving blade (the cutting blade) directly behind the stationary blade.

More hair can be cut this way as there is no guard between the blade and the hair.

This is a great video that shows you how to do it absolutely perfectly using the Oster Classic 76 No.1 blade.
