|I have the original of the Oster, Mars Coat King. Only the 14 tine one works for me, have tried several MCK tine counts and the cheap ones at the big box pet stores. MCK has a nice page showing before and after, Max definitely could be on that page, it really helps me deal with his fuzz. He looks most like the retriever mix I think.
It can cut coat but I used a flea comb and plucking undercoat religiously for a couple years, went back to MCK and cannot see any difference in Max's coat. Some groomers think they are fine, the original groomer who loved it for the faux stripping on terriers found dogs came back with really odd looking coats. Seems to me they would just need another session with a MCK type tool, not sure she tried that. It is carding anyway, not stripping. Pulls out undercoat. Pulling top coat is stripping.
I used the Furminator on Sassy' dense short double coat and MCK on Max's long/feathered thinner double coat. Wouldn't be without either but you do have to be careful.
