This is the very same Wahl trimmer I bought twenty years ago. The old one still works fine, but has a broken part. I love the trimmer so much that I wanted to buy a replacement before they are discontinued. (Though it looks like they'll be around for some time to come.)
If you are replacing an old one, keep your old accessories because the new ones are different and you may prefer the old one. TO WAHL: YOU MADE A MISTAKE WHEN YOU REPLACED THE ADJUSTABLE GUIDE WITH THREE FIXED ONES. imo
Here's a tip that will save everybody a lot of time eventually: Some AA batteries are a tad too big to easily fit in the trimmer, and will be VERY hard to remove. I know that Energizers do fit, and that Duracells don't.
While the unit is well built, the battery cover has a couple of tabs that can easily be broken if care is not taken when changing batteries. That's what happened to mine. (Actually I think I broke the tab because of the Duracell batteries I had in there.)
