The Dahle 554 28-1/4" Professional Rolling Trimmer is a large format trimmer seen in engineering departments, framing shops, galleries and schools around the world. It quickly and effortlessly cuts large workpieces to precise size. Its features include ground upper and lower steel blades along with an automatic paper clamp. The rugged base helps maintain its stability while the clearly marked surface grid gives you precise registration points.

      I've owned a Dahle print trimmer before, so I was ware of their quality. Thats why I insisted on another Dahle when I needed a larger size. The 28" is perfect for the prints I make at home. Can't recommend them enough. Precise German engineering.

      Bought this for trimming Photos. I do my own matting and framing.

      Solid and well built.

      Disappointed that the grid lines are metric.
      They have a vertical English ruler on one side.
      Horizontal is only metric.
      They should offer a English and metric version.

      I'll need to produce a conversion table. They also have A sizes marking but not common English sizes 4x6, 8x10 etc.

                I use this product to trim profesional photographs for gallery display. I have to say that I'm most satisfied with the results and the level of precision of the cuts. The roller is a plus and the action of cutting is absolutely safe. I highly recumbent this product..

                    The Dahle 554 professional cutter is very good value for the money. It cuts well and fine trims are possible. The only thing that I don't like is that the ruler/guide flexes and you can't really use it as an accurate cutting guide.

                              Nicely built intermediate quality trimmer, a definite step up from Dahle's cheapest line (they make 3 lines). Smooth cutting action, less of a burr on edges than using a straight edge and matte knife. Will cuts 4 ply matboard, but it feels like its pushing the limits, doesn't feel like it would be a good thing to do a lot of. The cutter was set up well I didn't need to tweak the angle of the guide to get a good 90 degrees to the cutter. The one thing I don't like is that the transparent overlay strip by the cutter floats some, so you can't use it as a guide to make precise narrow parallel cuts to a line. But all in all very pleased for the price.

                              I use the trimmer to cut down screenprints when we don't have the opportunity to use a guillotine. It makes straight, smooth cuts through 100lb paper with ease. This is the 3rd trimmer I've purchased because after a while, it does need to be replaced. I'd say it's lasted well over a year each time and has cut thousands of prints. Worth the money for sure.

                              This is a very, very good, large paper cutter, up to 12 sheets at a time. I was hoping it would cut 1/16" thick PETG plastic sheet but it won't.

                                      Good and sharp. Easy to use. Instructions are a joke- The guides don't really assist in making precise cuts. Use of this model would be easier with an updated user guide.

                                        I was using a Dahle guillotine cutter before and have found this rotary cutter to be much more accurate and faster. It doesn't take up too much space and was definitely a good purchase.

                                            Cuts the large photo papers wonderfully. Couldn't cut them as easily and straight without it!! Great price [...]

                                              It works and seems durable. But as with all products nowadays time will tell and they should have these product reviews a year from purchase. Hopefully when built they didn't consider this item disposable.

                                                Cuts both ways very smoothly. I use it for prints, highly recommended.

                                                    I've owned a Dahle print trimmer before, so I was ware of their quality. Thats why I insisted on another Dahle when I needed a larger size. The 28" is perfect for the prints I make at home. Can't recommend them enough. Precise German engineering.

                                                      Comments about Dahle 554 Professional Rolling Trimmer (28-1/4"):

                                                      Would be a five star if all measurements were in inches as well. Inches and CM along the sides but only CM along the top. Other than that it works great. Able to trim off 1/64th of an inch or less. Worth the money
