Wahl Peanut Classic Clipper and Trimmer

With the ongoing cordless craze, you may be wondering where you can get a reliable hair clipper/trimmer that doesn’t have a battery that’s going to fail. No weakening of power mid-cut if you forget to keep the battery charged. Just a commercial grade clipper that can easily be used on the road if need be.

Why not go with what the professionals use?

The Wahl Peanut Classic doesn’t compromise function or style. It’s has a compact and comfortable design that fits perfectly in the palm of your hand.

If you were looking for a trimmer to bring with you while you travel, this is ideal.

What if you want to bring it with you while traveling?

  • A battery powered trimmer of the same size will always be weaker. You can’t integrate a small battery with the same motor and get the same power.
  • No need to worry about keeping it charged. That means consistent power that won’t fade or fail.
  • Only 4 inches long and weighs 4 ounces.

Do I need a Clipper or Trimmer?

So what exactly is the difference between a clipper and a trimmer and why is the Wahl Peanut good at both?

Let’s take a look

Aside from the obvious size difference between the Wahl Designer Clipper and the Wahl Peanut Trimmer, you get a more powerful motor and larger blade.


The big difference is the taper lever. Clippers normally come with taper levers that let you easily blend and fade. You’re able to slide the blade guard up or down as you’re cutting hair. To do this same action with a trimmer, like the Peanut, you will need to be more skilled with a comb.

So while the Wahl Peanut is considered a compact trimmer/clipper, there are features in a traditional clipper that it’s lacking. But for most people this isn’t a big issue.

If you’re looking to trim your beard, do simple haircuts, or trim any other area of the body, the Wahl Peanut can handle it.


The standard attachments are 4 comb cutting guides:

  • 1/8 Inch (S-1)
  • 1/4 Inch (S-2)
  • 3/8 Inch (S-3)
  • 1/2 Inch (S-4)
