Oster Fast Feed Review – A Great Performing, All-round Hair Clipper

Last Updated on

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 in the industry.

However, this solid all-rounder is equally at home (well, at home!) for the occasional user.

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, but quiet enough to hear yourself think!

The Blade

Oster 076913-536 Fine Adjustable Blade SetThe clipper comes with a handy, adjustable Cryogen-x blade that is easily altered using the blade lever.

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.

A replacement blade doesn’t cost the earth, and will last a couple of years for occasional use.

I recommend you buy a spare one when purchasing the Fast Feed. It’s one of those things you can’t do without or fudge!

Accessories

Oster Professional 76023-510 Fast Feed Clipper with Adjustable Blade + 8 piece comb setThe 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 Oster Professional 10 Comb Set as an addition to the 4 guide combs that come with the clipper.

These guide combs fit perfectly onto the Fast Feed and are far more robust. Plus you get 6 extra cutting lengths to choose from.

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

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

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.
