Dahle 552 Reviews

Excellent trimmer, may need slight calibration

Cuts smooth, clean lines. One fence was slightly out of alignment, but Dahle has instructions available through customer service to correct the this. I've used a Rototrim with the same issues, so it's worth paying less for this.

Clean and sturdy

I bought this primarily to cut sheet film as well as photograhic/inkjet paper and my initial tests indicate this Dahle trimmer does an admirable job. ;-}

I needed a trimmer/cutter for bigger sheets of photo paper, etc. The Dahle 552 met my expectations. Easy to use right out of the box. Sturdy. Great smooth cuts. Would recommend it.

I've been looking for a good paper trimmer for my 13x19 printer paper. I saw this on sale and I dove right in. I wasn't disappointed when I received the item. It is very well made and it cut the photo paper I'm using easily and with a very clean edge. Seems like it will perform well and for a long time into the future.
