Carl DC-220 overview

  • 1Description

The manual DC-220 15" Heavy-Duty Rotary Paper Trimmer from Carl is an extremely functional cutter for home or office use. This ruggedly built trimmer can do a full day's work with its capability to cut up to 30 sheets at a time. In addition to paper, the DC-220 can handle foam board and plastic sheets - a bonus for not only business use but educational venues as well.

The trimmer is durable and stands on a firm metal base that is calibrated in 1" squares. For ease of use, the base is pre-marked with standard photo and letter-sizes. Cutting is a breeze since the magnetic paper guide holds the paper in place for precise cuts each time. This means that if you need to make a series of cuts, each one will be as exact as the previous one. Supporting the paper guide is a sturdy rail guide that also assists in holding the paper in place.

The DC-220 comes with a a nifty storage space for an extra blade and cutting mat as well as a more than respectable lifetime warranty.

Will also trim foam board, traditional mat board and plastic sheets
The adjustable magnetic paper guide assures the material will be held firmly in place during a cut
Sturdy rails also hold the paper in place for precision cutting
Metal, calibrated base in 1" squares - pre-set markings for photos and letter-size
Changing the cutting blade is easy
Handy storage space for extra blade and mat
Lifetime warranty

    Carl DC-220 reviews

    DC-220 15" Heavy-Duty Rotary Paper Trimmer is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 14.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Why has it been changed? This is my second one. The first one was used daily in an office and it took 3 years of constant use to wear it out. These are great, do everything they claim to do and they do it well. HOWEVER! There has been a very aggravating change to the new ones. For some reason, only known to their brilliant engineers, the clear yellow plastic part that clamps has been widened so that you're just out of luck if you need to cut small things. It blocks your hand from holding and positioning. Bad idea that reduces the value. 5 stars if this wasn't the case. Would recommend to a friend with the above caveat.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Weary The trimmer was great when I got it. It cut everything straight as expected. But then after sitting in the corner of my room, untouched, for a few months, I went back to trim something and the cut was askew. I have no idea what happened to it as I've always moved it around using both hands on the base. I have the model with a grey base and neon yellow cutting guide. Looks like the blue one is newer. I ended up contacting CARL under the warranty & they gave me an RMA to send in. It cost me $16 to ship it to them but they fixed it and sent it back in under 2 weeks time (might've been just 1 wk turnaround... I forget). Seems like the fix to the trim guide and the cutting mat strips corrected the problem. I would just suggest users to handle with care when moving it around as the trim guide/rail seems to be prone to becoming misaligned.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it, Cuts and Trims Great I used a cheaper trimmer for a while and got real frustrated. This trimmer is great for photos and more. Holds things down tight and cuts clean and straight. Very easy to use and I had no problem cutting up to 6 photos at a time. I would highly recommend this to anyone.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from A pretty good cutter for the price After my Fiscar starting wearing out I thought do I buy all the replacement parts or buy a new cutter for about the same price. I print my own art cards and cut them to be 5x7 so I needed a cutter to go through several sheets of card stock. So far this does the trick. I like the clamp down holder and I also don't like it. It does hold down the paper but it also adds a step in cutting. I will have to get use to it but it cuts through 3 layers of card stock and very smooth. Easier on my hands than my other cutter.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very good quality for a reasonable price! When my husband broke my other rotary trimmer I checked many different replacements and chose this. It is heavy so not all cheap components. The 15 in platform will let me cut down oversize photo paper to use in my 11 1/2 printer tray (no more scissors!).The sliding magnetized edge bar (not sure what it is called) will be useful for when I have stacks of paper (up to 30) to cut uniformly. Being able to store extra blades and cutting bases in the cutters base means I won't misplace them. Lastly, the markings for standardized 4X6, 5X7, etc is just icing on the cake. The only drawback I have found is the clamp must be closed to cut as a safety precaution. If you need to adjust the paper slightly, yes, you guessed it--you have to undo the clamp. It may get annoying but will save my fingers!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it. Fantastic well worth the money. Cuts great. FIRM grip on your paper. Sturdy and smooth. A happy purchase. Can't vouch for larger paper volumes I bought this for card-making. Two small complaints One is the guard gets in the way for cutting very small pieces, and because of the guard the rail doesn't extend over all the way. The other is the magnetic rule is a loose fit so you need to be careful lining it up to mark your width.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE it! Our church had used an old guillotine-style cutter for more years than I've been alive and when one of the pastors asked me to look into getting a different cutter (I personally owned a rotary), I jumped on it and did my research. We love that it clamps down on a good-sized sheet of paper at one time and you can make multiple passes to cut without worrying about shifting. The measurement markings are clear and I love the little compartment to hold extra blades and mats. It does take a little getting used to in that you need to lock it in place before each cut, but that really does make it more functional in the end. I do not like that the magnetic stopper has a loose fit and therefore can be placed (or it shifts) so that it is not square to the cutting blade, but this is minor. The fact that there is a stopper is more than I find in most cutters.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Met my expectations and more The cutter is so easy to use, the guideline is accurate, and the cut itself is extremely sharp. It feels substantial and looks like something that can be in a professional business office. The best cutter I've ever owned. Would recommend it highly! Ordering from B&H was so easy, efficient, and the product arrived on time. Thank you!
