16" Trimmer Bowl 16" Pro Tumble Cutter opinions please

Posted (edited)

Thinking of investing £90 in a

 Trimmer Bowl 16" Stainless Leaf Twisted Spin Pro Tumble Cutter

It looks very similar to a iPower product available in USA for the same sort of price. Looks like a good thing. Anyone have any knowledge or opinion on this? The product has not yet been reviewed. Not sure if it's ok to put an Amazon link here so I wont. Don't want to hand trim this year.

ive used these before and it literally saves hours. 

just pull all the fans off, and cut off the buds and spin away. I found it best to crank slowly and altho there is some loss in quality in the final product, the time saving is worth it in my opinion, because its minimal

I got one of those bowl trimmers from eBay for £100, they are spot on for the money, save loads of time.

 

I still hand trim the tops though, and just put everything else in the bowl trimmer.

Are these trimmers for use with buds wet or dry?

 

Or both?

I wouldn't recommend trimming dry product. as said above saves many tedious hours trimming ..

you get some really nice trim from it to make oils for cooking edibles etc. I use hemp oil from the supermarket it as a nice nutty flavour for salads cooking and what not..

happy trimming man good luck..

I’ve looked at lots of Trimmers including this one.  Kind of trying to decide but really want to dry trim.  Don’t want something to spendy.  What else is good?

I used one of these for a crop a little while back, did a reasonable job of it, but you certainly lose some trics in the process.  I've even got a powered trimbox pro (£700 trimming beast, I didn't pay for it), I used one to trim about a kilo of weed.  Did it in about 10 hours, and I wasn't in any kind of a hurry.  Think I'd have been even quicker if I used it again but I prob wouldn't, i prefer the finish from hand trim.

I'm quite happy with it for wet trimming. I'm saving all the trim anyway for making hash. It's massive though.large.20180611_165208.jpglarge.20180611_193450.jpg

Those trimmers are great for the price. Ive used alot of different ones & those do the job well. 

Obviously its not the best way for quality but if time is against you then its a no brainer.. 

I just take all the big fan leaves off & quick pluck of the smaller leaves & the trimmer does the rest. Best not to overload the trimmer either, if the lid doesnt close properly & it wont spin with ease. I get some great scissor hash from the fingers of the trimmer. Always left with a baseball of resin at the end of cleaning those trimmers. Id say best to use these to cut the green wet. I have used to cut it dry in the past & took too much off. 

Good luck on the cut down.

I got one of these beasts tucked away in a cupboard - a mate left it here in some stuff.  I used it once, it's a total beast. Plows through a crop in no time, it's just not the most delicate operation hence I only used the once :)

Not a big fan of bowl trimmers at all. I find if too rough it makes the buds go dark, as if from bruising or something, and with it being a wet trimmer it just get caked up full of shit. I was very much against trimmers for a long long time because everything I saw out of a trimmer was garbage, but when the yield started going up and the hatred for trimming got stronger I started looking at options. 

 

I tried a trimbag on the saucers and was really impressed, what would've took me a week or two by hand took me 2 days with the trimbag and its a dry trimmer. Very very impressed and I'll be using it again, just remember not to be too rough with it or you just smash everything to bits. Totally not worth the money, but its worth the price for the time saved if that makes sense.

@Golden Syrup the trimbag actually doesn't look too terrible, how badly does it moose up the buds tho?  and OMFG at the price, surely that's a misprint, like x10.

 

Edit: What do you mean by "on the saucers"?

I’ve got one for outdoor trim jobs, saves me a few days graft. Wouldn’t use on indoor bud. After all that hard work tending to your flowers, nurturing them and then blasting it through a trimmer at the end?  no chance
