Optional thumb support provides additional control and comfort.


Adjustable Thumb Support – A thumb support can be added to your Whizard Trimmers for improved trimmer control – very helpful for some applications.



Micro-Break Strap – Supporting the hand during production use, this strap allows operators to relax their fingers between work cycles while still maintaining control over the trimmer. This highly beneficial feature reduces risks associated with hand stress. (Used only with flanged handles.)



Steeling Device – Available on select models, this push-button device steels the inside blade edge, removing the rolled edge for improved trimming performance and reduced cutting effort.




Quick-Disconnects – A spring-loaded lever that fits inside the handle instantly stops the trimmer whenever an operator's hand-grip is released. This feature contributes to additional worker safety.


Left or Right Hand Operation – Most Whizard Trimmers may be ordered for either left or right hand operation.
