first run the motor was making a noise but not running. have to press ON button fast then it works. not sure if its defective but works as advertised when i press ON fast. might be related to the initial amperage draw to get motor running which might be related to other things plugged into same power line (freezer, air filter, tv etc). will know for certain when i bring it to another plug/power line. i will definitely reach out if it still has that problem on a new power line. that being said it's very industrial, dont like final bag look? toss it in for another minute and presto. simple, robust and at makes trimming at least 3 times faster than hand trimming . its not magic because you still need to prep trim and quality assure here and there but it was definitely worth the purchase.
Very good trimmer, doesn’t damage your bud. Very nice bag appeal. Only issue I had was the bottom of the drum had a little bent wasn’t 100 percent circle it still trims but makes a weird noise.
Works exactly as described and what I like most is that it's very tiny and easy to store after use. Definitely saves time by not cutting all day! These guys ship fast too!
