So just so we understand the difference between a pro unit and a home version; do you use it b/c of it's longevity or will our hair look better somehow when we use it to cut?
It is more than longevity. It is more powerful and therefore cuts faster without pulling and cuts more per stroke. There is no comparison at all.

I do. I use a whal 8081 outline detailer. Very sharp and smooth.
You find that better than the Andis?

The 76 is reliable. Never has issues if you oil it and take care of it. The attachments switch very easily and the motor is relatively quiet. It stays cool even after long use and is easy to clean. All in all good for pros and great for at home. Only thing I would recommend is of using at home, don't spend on the blades and but the plastic attachments. You'll save alot of money there.

The Andis is heavy and can get very hot if using it for a while. It's also a popular and powerful option.

+1
Also changing blades wears down the mechanism since to need to do it with the motor running.

I can hear that. The most I use it for is a few kids at a shot. The Andis gets very close and my sons use it as a shaver. Does the Wahl get as close?

I wouldn't use it as a shaver as that's what shavers are for. This would be a very close trim. Not a shave.
