If you’re like me, anytime I am in a store that sells products…I will glance down the aisle a time or two, just out of curiosity. One of the things that always caught my eye was the Bamboo FurBuster, it looked like a FURminator, it had photos like it was a FURminator; but is it a good alternative to the FURminator?
I have used the FURminator on multiple occasions and loved it…but didn’t have the money to purchase one myself.I’d go home and Google reviews on both products but either people raved about the FURminator…or they raved about the FURminator. Thanks a lot people.
So I decided to bite the bullet and purchase the FurBuster myself. At $24.99 (give or take a few cents at your local Wal-Mart) I got it home, eagerly unwrapped it and hauled Pompei to the porch. Designed to match the shape of the FURminator, the FurBuster seems impressive with with its removable blade option, saving you the time of purchasing a whole other utensil for multiple dogs.
I have to say I was pretty disappointed with my first results. The blade is quite small and doesn’t get off much hair, in my opinion but feeling optimistic, I decided I probably didn’t remember the FURminators’ results well enough to properly gauge if this was as good. After several uses I still wasn’t getting the results I was hoping for, and decided…since I had a gift card for $60 to CSN.com…why not get a real FURminator?
I have to say, there was a big difference. In the size, weight and blade size; the medium FURminator blade was deeper than the FurBuster, thus allowing it to grab more hair father down, I also noticed the tines on the blade are wider on the FURminator as well.. A few brush strokes and I had a pile of hair on the ground next to us….All in all, I do feel the FURminator is a better purchase if you actually want to remove large amounts of hair, and I feels as if it would hold up longer than FurBuster!
