    Wahl, have had the same one for 10 years. 3 different heads and many different attachments handles every nook and cranny for me. You can find cheaper elsewhere but this is the model I have.

    Philips Bodygroom, model BG2034 or the newer BG5025. You'll find them ~$30 or less around black friday. Comes with a extra long back attachment if you need it.

    I've been using a Wahl for years. I usually trim down with a 0 and on the lowest setting every few weeks or so. Lately I've been pushing the blade out just a little bit, so it's more like halfway between as close as it goes and as far as it goes. Seems to help cut down on the ingrown hairs and shit. If you're going to shave with a razor, I still recommend trimming with some kind of clippers first. It'll make the shave go so much easier. If your clippers are pulling, you likely just need to oil them and they should be fine. Depending on how you are at maintenancing them, you might want to separate the blade guard thing from the piece that moves back and forth and give it a thorough cleaning. Try to brush out your cut hair after each session. Oil frequently - I usually do mine like every 3 or 4.
    This looks pretty close to the model I have: https://www.amazon.com/Grooming-husb.../dp/B0026IBSVE

    Manscaping - shave with whatever you're using on your face. Although, to be honest, I found the Harry's razors to be a little better at body shaving than Gillette. These were the ones I was using: https://www.harrys.com/en/us/product...ist=shave-sets I'm all out now and don't plan to re-order. The Gillette works ok, just takes a little longer sometimes.



    Back is tough. I get hair in three different areas - upper central neck area, dead center of my back (impossible to reach), and above my buttcrack. I can trim two of the three with the clippers and it cleans me up ok. I actually got that shit waxed for the first time... $60 to do it, lasts for about a month. I'm going to look into laser treatments, though it'll be upwards of $1,000-$1,500 just to do the back.

    Also, after looking at the Bodygroom with the back attachment, that might be the way to go.

    Oddly enough, on NESR someone just asked about dog grooming clippers, and I said that this is what I bought to do touchups on my poodle mutt: https://www.petco.com/shop/en/petcos...et-clipper-kit

    I actually use it for myself too. I’ve used Wahl (corded) human clippers for years, I did regular haircuts on probably 6-8 friends in college with it. This cordless one with the Lithium battery seems just as powerful and has very good run time. The angle of the dog blades is a little different than the human blades, but they both use the same mounting screws so it’s easy to change them out for the human hair ones:
