What makes a brushless motor different?
Brushless motors are designed for professionals wanting to invest in tough tools that last. Brushless motors significantly extend clipper motor lifetime (up to 10 to 12 times). Brushless motors are both lighter weight and run quieter. The power efficiency is improved, around 85% to 90% efficiency versus brushed motors at 75% to 80%. They offer increased torque. Brushless motors adjust to the job at hand, giving more torque when needed for tough jobs, dense, difficult or matted coats. With no brushes to wear out that means lower maintenance. A brushless motor also runs smoother with less friction for reduced heat. Some examples of brushless motor clippers are the Andis AGC Super 2 Speed Brushless, the Wahl KM10 and Wahl KM Cordless, and the Heiniger Opal.
