I purchased one of these Wahl trimmers when my wife and I were married in 1991. Never been to a barber since that time. It worked great until 2015, but I think it would have continued to work well if I had not run out of oil. The little oil bottle that came with it lasted until 2013-14 (Not sure). Amazing, over 20 years. I was beginning to think it was like the oil Elijah gave to the widow, but it finally ran out. Then I started oiling it with my wife's olive oil. It was better than nothing, but not the same. The blade eventually went dull, and started pulling my hair, and my sons hair, thus not cutting will. I checked on replacement blades from Wahl's website, but I found this whole new kit at Wal-mart for about the same price. So I got this one. It seems just as good as the other. My suggestion is to oil the Blades each time you use it. Oil before you start cutting hair (one time), then cut hair until your heart is content. I have 6 kids. We used it a lot. Then the next time you have a cutting event going on, oil it before you cut anybody. I got over 20 years out of my last Wahl.
