    -good
    -Spray bottle while trimming, I don’t have to spend hours cleaning it when returning it. Usually have too.
    - 1 tumbler
    - tumbler gets stuck from res, clean blades
    -not loosing much, but some - fair compromise
    -defoliate your fans, I do, loose lots of hash from blower/bag
    -1 person can debuck and run trimmer but at a slower rate

    It’s a good machine, not making investment due to legalization up coming

    I'll venture mu opinion...aftter 30 yrs living with degenerative disc disease I'm not in real good shape...I have my pinks for 34 outdoor..128 indoor...the outdoor gives me enough to last the year, so I don't grow indoors...but trimming is a beast for 20+lbs...so I bought a shearline 2.0...a tad on the pricey side...but I no longer need 10-12 folks to trim...also got "compassionate pricing...was 6500 USD plus...talked with the owner and came up with 5150 CAD all in...good folk...sent me 2 free upgrades as well...just my .02....hth

    I looked into this unit, and it really doesn’t do it for me.
    This video is what really turned my off of it.

    What a fuckin JOKE that trim machine is. That's just great !!! Roll the fuckin buds around until their round and Trich free. Can you imagine what a stomping those buds are taking. No wonder the dispensary bud is round Brussel sprout balls of fur-less trash mostly.
    I'd put my hand trim up against that crap any day. At least you get all the trich's you deserve from me.
    I'd rather smoke the shavings from that machine than the final baldy buds they are flogging.
    I suppose the LP's use those garbage producing machines to further ruin the shit they grow.
    Sorry but hand trimming is the ONLY way to produce the BEST product. Rolling buds around until they are bald is just plain pathetic.

    But what do you do when you spend 4 days a month trimming? 4 hours sounds better.

    The cash croppers love all the extra kief, they can sell the same bud twice this way.

    I don’t wanna lose any but I know that’s not going to happen, I just want my weekends back,

    I don’t think I’ll try to make any $ at this
    As it seems like a PITA business
    But I need to do something,
    So far I like the Shearline 2.0 & Twister T6

    Well this is the difference between craft and commercial. This is the thing with cannabis. As soon as you get too big..... the BIG work/jobs start as well. Thereby causing folks to cut corners.
    There just no way to auto trim to the same level.
    Auto trim will always look like commercial brussel sprouts tumbled weed. I'd spot the difference in a second.
    I know...big harvest...big work....but the weed will suffer for it.

    Ya I may have sounded like I was criticizing those that use trimmers. My Apology offered.
    I only mean that using trimmers will always result in less than perfect end results.
    I understand that with huge harvests you don't get much choice. I would probably get one as well in that case.

    Ya GB...those producers in the US and Canada must laugh at taking the part folks pay for and reselling it to them again. Geez the LP's that don't hand trim must have a salt domes worth of kief by now. I've seen video of some LP's hand trimming. I wonder if they understand the difference maybe??
    Maybe they are trying to make it better by hand trimming.

    I was just blown away by the pathetic treatment that machine was doing to the buds. If I saw my buds being rubbed bald like that thing does......I'd be horrified.
    Hell they might as well rub them over sand paper...same result.
    Geez the rental guys must love when they are returned gooey....lots of potential for nice scaping's.

    indeed the "finger hash" is a bonus....is why I own the machine....its my meds....I bought a hand held steam cleaner for the clean ups...wife sewed me up a sock for it....my helper says it works great...I'm happy he is happy...he understands I'm a pauper...but will find funds for the right tools...;)))

    I've seen a nice unit for under $500....trying to remember which one now. Most are junk...the one i'm trying to recall wasn't bad for the price at all. ...hmmm
