    Default Cheap dog dryer

    So i'm starting to build my dog grooming business from just grooming occasionally for friends, to hopefully something a lot bigger. I'm currently looking into buying more equipment that i will need to go pro. I know what dryer i would ideally like, (The lazor RX, its not overly flash however i've used it on many dogs before and it does a great job and i really like it) however i'm not sure if i can afford to get that dryer plus the other equipment i need right now. I'm thinking I might buy a cheaper one for now, and use it for 6-12 months until i have the spare money to buy the dryer I want. So i was wondering whether anyone has any experience with this dryer.

    It doesn't sound too different from the Lazor RX but it would be good to hear from people who have used it before. Hopefully someone on here has used one of these cheap dryers from ebay before, and can let me know what they think of it

    My logic is, a cheap dryer and all the other stuff i need is better than a more expensive dryer without all the other stuff i need.

    What sort of vacuum cleaner have you got at home ? Can it be reversed - to blow instead of suck ?

    Then you can also look at second hand:

    Default Dog dryer

    There are many things to consider before buying a dryer. (https://masterclip.co.uk/products-dog-clippers)
    As you have to buy it for your grooming business then you must keep few things in mind.
    Stability: Avoid metallic dryers due to their rusty nature as they won’t be around for a long time, they even amplify the motor sound which can be uncomfortable for any dog. Make sure that the dryer is holding up to your expectation.
    Storability: There dryers are available in the market with different shape and size and you may not be aware of them. You must thing about your needs and then opt for any dryer like stand dryer, cage dryer, etc.
    Noise: It is better to go for the well-designed dryer than some crappy dryer as they are not comfortable for the dog. It is understandable that dryer will make some noise but it is better to decide on the one with minimal noise.
    These are just a few things which can help you decide the best for your business.
