The 2011 TrimPro Auotmatik is a much more versatile bud trimmer than the previous model. The new model comes equipped with a much needed dimmer control for the motor, which gives you complete control over the speed of the blades and how your product moves through the trimmer. Earlier models of the TrimPro Automatiks had one speed, TURBO! It looked like you where dropping your medicine into a fuckin tornado. The first time I used one my heart sank watching the TrimPro Automatik tornado destroy such hard work. The end results however, were not nearly as bad as I imagined they would be.
The TrimPro Automatik not only looks the TrimPro XL’s little brother, but now with the dimmer, it actually works like the XL model. Side by side the TrimPro Automatik is about 1/3 the size of the TrimPro XL and priced accordingly.
We recently used some new Trimpro Automatik’s for four non stop days in Durango CO. We found that running it at 60-70% of total power worked perfect for our needs and at these speeds the Automatik barely made a noise.
Ideally you will want 3 people: One person to cut the medicinal buds from the plant and cut off the fan leaves. A second person to run the TrimPro Automatik feeding the buds into the trimmer and removing them. Then a third person to clean up any areas that were not trimmed as close as you would like. Three people in one day can trim about as much medicine as it would take 20 hand trimmers.

Here is the general info on the Trimpro Automatik from the companies website.
Equipped with a powerful three phase motor mated with a variable speed dimmer, height adjustable four (4) blades assembly and a circular hermetic structure that creates a whirlwind effect, the Trimpro Automatik is the fastest and safest way to trim your plants.
For trimming, separate the fresh flowers from the branches, put them into the upper container of the trimmer and let the Trimpro Automatik do the rest.
