Dahle 448 Reviews

May want to look elsewhere for a trimmer.

I was looking at this Dhale 448 and a the Rotatrim Mastercut in a similar size. The Dahle was over 100$ cheaper and I thought that a quality difference would be tolerable as I'm not doing any extremely precise trimming. The build quality is a long way from premium. The end caps are plastic, and not even a thick or durable plastic. One had minor damaged from shipping and I had to take the cap off and put it back on to get it straight. You can't drop in a print and get a straight cut, you have to line it up rather carefully. It does cut paper, and can trim down to a few thousandths of an inch, but you have to really take your time. The adjustable guide is poorly constructed and I've just taken it off. I have buyers remorse on this trimmer and wish I spent the extra money on the Rotatrim. I may actually return it this week. I do like that it cuts in both directions however. I'm going with 3 stars because it does cut paper very nicely if you aren't in a hurry and I like the guides printed on it. If you don't need to work very fast or very precise the $100 savings might be worth it. I will however be buying a Rotatrim next time or may exchange this one out.

Very sturdy construction

very sturdy design, no side to side movement in the cutting head as with other brand cutters
