Mine are supposed to be 80dB which others of the same size seem to be. They just don't sound right to me and seem a lot louder than other clippers i've heard. Does anyone have a video of themselves clipping a horse?

Maybe the tension isn't right? Mine are quite loud but they're old I think, i got them second hand. They're Lister stablemates. The tension on mine isn't what it should be though, they work alot better if you take away another 1/4 or something!

Hmmm maybe if i loosen it a bit it might help, they seem very tight and were like that when i got them.

are they properly oiled and tensed if they are over heating or not very oiled they can get noisy thats why they sometimes seem quieter when you first start off

They are loud to start with. I've oiled them and i did what it said in the instructions. Think i just have a noisy pair of clippers lol.
