How the Trimpro Original Works:
Inside the Trimpro, a set of rotating blades sits close to the underside of the grate. Fitted to the two blades are a set of flaps, which can be angled in a similar way to a propeller, sucking air through the grill of the workstation. Untrimmed, fresh plant produce is then rolled over the grate in a circular movement, and any leaves that penetrate the grill are removed by the blade.
Excess leaves are sucked into the collecting bag, eliminating mess and keeping the surrounding area clean and tidy; the gathered leaves can then be disposed of or put to use for other purposes.
What puts Trimpro products well above the rest of the competition is the sublime build quality that can be felt through every component. Trimpro really do strive to deliver the finest quality products to its ever-growing base of loyal customers. Years of intensive research and careful consideration have been put into every aspect of the design and manufacturing of these units in order to create an end-product that’s sturdy, effective, robust and reliable.
How to use the Trimpro:
Prior to use please note:
The hub (which sits on the drive shaft) and the Trimpro blades / flaps should never be separated. If adjusting, always use the blocking screw located on the side of the hub to remove the hub and blades as a combined unit; do not use the screw located on the top of the hub that sits in the centre of the blades and flaps.
To fit the extension legs, remove the rubber fittings and insert the leg extensions over the top of the top of the main legs until they reach the stopping screw. At this point, tighten the four blocking bolts to secure the legs in place.
To swap the Workstation for the original grate, you will first need to untighten the screw which secures the cable stopper. The cable stopper prevents the grate from being opened further than 90 degrees when the grate is lifted. With the screw untightened, the cable can be unfastened from the original grate. Remove the screws at the back of the unit and keep them in a safe place. Lift off the original grate and use the screws to fit the Workstation’s hinge to the back of the Trimpro Original. With the hinge secure, lift the Workstation so that it’s at 90 degree angle to the blades / flaps. Thread the cable through the hole on the left side of the Workstation and use the screw to fasten it back in place.
Fit the collecting bag to the bottom of the unit by closing the Velcro fastenings around the black ring which surrounds the grate from its underside.
Before turning the unit on at its power switch, located on the front of the main surface, always carefully read the safety information supplied with the unit. The manufacturer recommends that chainmail gloves should be worn at all times when operating the Trimpro Original. Never allow fingers or gloves to come into contact with either the blade or the protective grill. Check that the blade is sitting correctly – make sure that there is a gap of at least 1/8 of an inch between the grate and the blade. The Trimpro Original can then be powered up by plugging the unit in and turning on at the mains supply.
Using the Trimpro:
The Trimpro is designed for use with freshly harvested material. Never attempt to use this product with dried plant matter! To get the best out of the Trimpro, leave harvested material on the branch. Use the length of the branch to hold plant materials just above the grate, using a twisting motion to ensure even trimming. The suction of the flaps will pull leaf matter in towards the blades, removing leaves in the process, while the grate preserves the integrity of the required plant parts. Never apply pressure to the grate, as doing so could potentially cause it to contact the spinning blade and could also damage plant materials that you would otherwise wish to preserve.
By altering the angle of the blade flaps, you can increase or decrease the level of air displacement under the grate, altering the amount of suction drawing the leaf matter toward the blades. When the flaps are adjusted to sit at more of an angle, they produce extra suction. To gain access to the blades, unscrew each of the three plastic nuts on the face of the grate in to remove it. Once removed, the blades can be adjusted by hand by bending with gentle pressure.
Sharpening the blades:
If you wish to sharpen your blades, loosen the screw located on the side of the aluminium hub that houses them. This hub sits on top of the drive shaft and should always be removed in one piece. Give the blades a thorough clean using isopropyl alcohol. Once any residue is removed, use a grindstone to sharpen. Do so by moving the blade along the grindstone at your desired angle in a ‘left to right – right to left’ motion. Then replace the hub and blades, retightening the screw on the side of the hub.
