Wahl 79524-1001 Deluxe Chrome Pro Multi-Cut Trimmer Review

One of the ways I decided to cut back on expenses was to invest in the Wahl 79524-1001 Deluxe Chrome Pro with Multi-Cut Clipper & Trimmer. I now cut my own hair and my son’s and save the expense of going to the barber. I like the fact that this is a complete haircutting kit with a multi-cut clipper.  Everything that I might need comes with it in a soft zippered carrying case. You get a lot for the price.  This Wahl is a top-of-the-line clipper.  It’s powerful and does a great job cutting our hair. It’s said to be one of the best hair clippers for fades.

The clipper has a Dura-Chrome finish, and I like the feel of the comfort grip.

This is a multi-cut clipper, which means that it has taper control that you can adjust to the length you want to cut.

Included with the set is a battery-operated S-Trimmer with a contoured shape that makes it easy to handle and is good for touchups.  The trimmer uses two AA batteries.  It works and comes in very handy, but it can pull a bit, which is uncomfortable.

Here’s what comes in the box:  the multi-cut clipper, battery-operated S-trimmer, 12 guide combs, a barber comb, a styling/flattop comb, scissors, a cape, blade oil, cleaning brush, two hair clips, blade guard for clipper and trimmer, mirror, spray bottle, zippered storage case, and instructions/styling guide.

I don’t use it for this purpose, but it’s useful for athletes who need to trim their body hair, such as swimmers and professional cyclists.  I am a cyclist, but I have no plans of going pro.  If I change my mind, I’ve got the clipper for it.

The blades on this trimmer are self-sharpening, high-carbon steel blades.  They are supposed to stay sharper longer, and so far, I can say they’re still nice and sharp.  The way you can tell if they’re still sharp enough is whether you still get an accurate, precision cut.

Pros:

  • It comes with 12 guide combs. The chances are you’ll have the combs you need because there are 12 guide combs to choose from.
  • It’s powerful.  This clipper has all the power needed to do a great job.
  • It comes with styling instructions.  I cut my own hair and my son’s hair.  He’s pickier than me about having a current style, and I’m able to achieve the look he wants, thanks to styling instructions that come with the clipper.
  • This clipper comes with a five-year warranty.  With a five-year warranty, you can’t go wrong buying this clipper, even if you pay full price for it.

Cons:

  • It doesn’t come with much oil.  There’s a very small quantity of oil that comes with the clipper so you have to get some more oil before very long, if you use it a lot.
  • The trimmer pulls a bit. This clipper comes with a battery-operated trimmer.  The trimmer works, but it pulls a bit if the batteries aren’t very fresh, which is uncomfortable.

I recommend getting the Wahl 79524-1001 Deluxe Chrome Pro with Multi-Cut Clipper & Trimmer, 27 Pieces if you’re getting a clipper to save on going to the barber.  This one is a terrific price and gets the job done well.  It also has a generous amount of accessories as well as helpful instructions.  With the five-year warranty, you can’t go wrong.
