okay not sure if this is correct place for this But here goes

I baught this thing a year ago to help in trimming outdoor crop...first time I used it it was more like a Huge Grinder and grinded the buds to shake....now after talking with a friend here that uses it says it works better with out the blade..just use the wire wheel....would like to hear from those that have used it...Seems like I got just as much trim as I did buds as far as wieght goes...

the rubber fingers press the buds down so the leaf goes threw the rack and the wires spinning knocks crap off...I can see this is gonna be a pain to clean

Lol i have just trimmed 2 massive plants yesterday in 1.5 hours what would usually take me 10+ hours to trim.
Ok the finished buds aint as pretty manicure wise but time saving and less eye strain and hours more time of my own and the amount filled 3 x shoe boxes to the brim.
The trick to it is to take like a second or two to complete one turn/revolution of the handle and do not add too much bud to trim just an even layer then Bobs ya Uncle and Fannys ya Aunt.
First time i tried one i spun for England as fast as i could and had a bowl full with the smallest buds you have ever seen.
Slow is the only way this works.
Lost trics they are all in the bowl for your hash crap if that what you do with it i just give it away no use to man nor beast imho.

This is what the finished buds look like if you spin very slowly bit of a pain but compared to hand trimming it was actually enjoyable as you can get.

my experience is that it takes quite a bit of hand work after the trimmer, but commerical growers say it saves tons of time. I am not a commercial grower so...I guess it depends on how much you have to trim.

I don't really see the point. Scissors are cheaper and friends make the time go by faster.

That and I just love me scissor hash ....

the point is you have youre own spare time to do stuff that matters and not sit fannying around trimming for hours on end.

my rule is keep the heavy-sugared leaf immediately around the bud as sort of a tricome protective measure, wjile taking off all the yellowed nasties. If you need to do cleanup trimming on the buds after you "spin" them, then it's redundant and you may as well just hand trim.

And trichome loss doesn't matter to you? okaaaayy....

The trichones are all in the bowl of the bud trimmer and will be thrown in with the sugar leaf for 2 x pals.
All the fan leaves were removed and binned prior to using the trimpro.

Wow that leaves an incredible amount of leaf material. If I was buying bud and it had that much leaf and stem material left, I would be complaining. Maybe if you are growing large amounts commercially.....but otherwise I can't see using a machine that really doesn't do that good a job. I really like all visible stems and leaf material removed and this only happens with hand trimming. I'll stick to my trusty bonsai scissors and do it the old fashioned way.

i have seen em used...trashes the product to a sub par commercial level....
i have always stripped...hang...cleaned up by hand...with a good strip and no "haircutting" its not that hard to get show quality bud..even for the brick and mortar places round here....
