    The outdoor $500 lb's aren't being hand-trimmed, otherwise it wouldn't be cost effective.

    gonna be interesting this year. growers can't find trimmers. pounds won't be moving fast. i smell a shortage in supply happening. I know I am not the only one having trouble finding trimmers.

    I do mine my hand for the very tops, cuz thats my personal reserve anyhow...

    I run this one, have for years now, grabbed a 10-pack of spare blades, so I can swap out n keep going w/o any cleaning/sharpening slowdowns... Then I can take them all at once eventually to have them sharpened by someone who does it right.

    Worth every penny (I it was 150 when I got mine) and you figure out the blade height spacing pretty quick... then its just a few minutes of snipping n sorting buds, lop off the bottom 2 big leaves (optional) and into the trimmer!

    Bonus, the trimmings are perfect to dry out n make oil from :) No waste....
