I ordered this Thursday morning early they were working on Saturdays to get and stayed caught up the driver said. This is the fastest amazon order two days You got to love the prime membership. This is a common complaint about this trimmer but a super easy fix. And the catch bag is super tight to get on that was another common complaint in the reviews but two people doing it makes it a sinch to put on. Those are the only two gripes the trimmer is well balanced and very quiet I was expecting it to louder I am super impressed with the noise count. The buds that I trimmed were hanging for a two days with a slight fan on them. This would be considered dry we put the trimmer on low and ran with the grate not against it and it is working just fine I will bags it up keep it nice and wait for my end trimmer lol. Five plants done in a hour of mainly dry leaf. Hands not hurting at all PRICELESS. And iam not worried about trichome loss there is none what ever i collect will be made into tinctures with a levo 2

If you are wet trimming and in over your head this system works and works great. At leisure the wife and I cropped one whole 8x8 tent into beautiful sized well trimmed bud and we caught most of the trim. When doing foxtail buds I turned it down to one and it left them alone. It just brought back allot of fun to growing I filled a 8 tier bud drying rack. The rack will go in the tent and I will be drying at 60 degrees and 66 R.H. with a slight breeze on them. I need at least two more 8 tier drying racks. Here is a

few pictures. We did pounds of bud and never broke a sweat. It may not be everyone's cup of tea but I worked building car seats using a Hog ring gun and have brutal carpal tunnel IAM not hurting at all. I did not have to buy any beer or goodies lol. The money I save on supplying people to help will pay for everything LMAO

The trim is prime for making MCT tinktures nothing will be wasted the catch bag works pretty good. The trim is all ground to a pulp and drying. It will be going to make RSO and like I said tinkture . The blades are still sharp and I have ran allot through this set up.

Have you looked into Carpal Tunnel Release surgery? I know one person who had the surgery after several years of taking pain meds and using splints. It is an option. It appears some folks have a narrower carpal tunnel which predisposes them to the syndrome.

II am seriously thinking about it is only getting allot worse and is effecting my snowmobiling so I think I might just get it done and over with. Thanks for that latest information on the surgery it does not look as evasive as it once was I think.

Very cool! Glad to hear and see it worked for you and saved your body. So it's yellow machine first, then whatever the yellow missed gets cleaned up in the silver machine?

Yes my man the first will take all the fan leaves and secondary leaves then finish it up with the second machine. As soon as I cut the plant I trim them we are done both my photo tent's except for my lava freeze and a couple of wedding cake that have a few days to go. With Fluffy Sativa bud I run the second machine on low. Man it works good and the blades are still sharp I put the isopropyl to them now and then. I know where they cut cost the blades are great but do not last and expensive machine would have a blade that would be CNC machined from a chunk of high grade aluminum with a harden steel blade inserted I would think and more cutting area making one blade last a lifetime. These blades need to be manually changed now and then when I do not know yet. But I just ran at least 25 pounds wet weight and they are still great shape.. imo This is great system for older growers with hands and back issues. And the trim is ground fine and drying perfect it will be so easy to turn into tinkture.Thank you for the kind words my friend.

I really appreciate the positive vibe you are giving me St.Tom this has been a very hard decision due to the old school don't lose any trichomes way of thinking. But I feel this has brought back alot of FUN to one of the most stress full parts in the grow scene. Thank you for the kind words and support. And has is your wife doing I take it she id very happy with getting the operations on both her hands. And I was reading where it could be genetics that you inherit it from your mother and father some people are born with smaller tunnels that wear out due to repetiveness o job. Some can do it over and over an never suffer. I was doing some research on it.
