Recommendations on grooming clippers

Hey, I'm looking to get a decent pair of grooming clippers to keep at my house. I need to give Jack a good hair cut, he's getting quite matted. I hate using the rechargable clippers, so I am looking for a nice chorded pair.

I'm looking to spend between $100-$200 USD, they need to be quiet and need to be able to quickly cut through THICK fur. I'm not terribly worried about much else, of course I want them to be safe and blah blah blah, but I'm particularly gifted at grooming cats, as I used to be really the only one to volunteer to clip the neglected cats that came in to the shelter, lol.

I was looking at some of the ones by Andis. I just didn't know if anyone has first hand experience. The main HUGE point is needs to be QUIET as possible. Jack is still kind of skittish.

Let me know

I haven't used any pet clippers myself but it seems like a number of people on this forum like the Andis AGC Super 2 speed:

The Andis AGC Super 2 speed is also highly recommended on the following website with a five star rating followed by the Oster Powermax 2 speed with a four star rating:

http://petclipper.org/andis-22360-ag...lipper-review/

http://petclipper.org/oster-78004-01...ippers-review/

Sounds like both of the above work equally well for dogs or cats and both are supposed to be quiet with the Andis being described as "very quiet."

Awesome, thanks a bunch! I will check into those. I am looking to order ASAP. Poor Jack is one giant furball at this time. I furminate all my cats frequently but he is a very very hairy cat. He's like 7 pounds of cat and 3 pounds of fluff Those are in my price range as well...
