Frequently Asked Questions

How does Shearline™ compare with its competitors?

Shearline™ is superior to every other brand of automated trimming machines because we have spent years working with our machines and learning what needs improvement and our new models reflect all that we learned from our customers as to what was needed to greatly improve the original machines!

The greatest challenge for automated trimming machines is the blade system and blade maintenance.  Shearline™ has designed the only machines on the market that have easily cleaned blade systems, which are made out of D2 hardened steel.  This steel allows for a much nicer and smoother cut, and is very easy to maintain.

The Shearline 2.0 has also perfected a new methodology of trimming by employing a shark-tooth cutting system, which provides an extremely close, neat cut with very little to no pulling or tearing and eliminates bruising.

Who is the creator of Shearline™?

The creator of the Shearline Original, Shearline 2.0, and Shearline Industrial designed the very first automated trimming machine in 1997! Since then, he has reworked his invention throughout the years, and has perfected trimming system technology, providing you with the best designs and support in the industry.
