Dahle 558 Professional Rolling Trimmer Review

If you need to work with very large items, one device that's worth a look is the Dahle 558 Professional Rolling Trimmer. Let's learn all about it by considering its strengths and weaknesses.


  • Unlike guillotine cutters, rolling trimmers typically don't have high cutting capacities. That's not the case with the 558 which can cut as many as 20 sheets of paper at once. This cutting capacity makes this device ideal for medium-sized jobs in professional environments (i.e. print shops, graphic design studios, offices, etc.).

  • The 558 can cut really large items that are up to 51 inches long. (That's equivalent to 4.5 feet.) This is a great trimmer to use if you regularly work with signs, blueprints, and other large materials.

  • This device uses a ground steel blade that's self-sharpening. It can cut in both directions which really helps make trimming easier. The blade is located in a plastic cutting head for safety purposes.

  • If you want to use rolled paper, you can certainly do that with the cutter. There's a roll holder that's sold separately and can be attached to this device. Using this cutter to trim roller paper is definitely a lot easier than using scissors or a craft knife and you'll get a better cut when you do so. (This method is also a lot safer.)

  • The 558 has multiple cutting guides printed on its durable metal base. The cutting guides so you where to cut if you want a certain size of paper. There's even a protractor you can use if your paper needs to be cut on an angle. The base also has an alignment grid with metric and standard measurements.

  • Whether you're cutting a full 20 sheets or just a couple, your work will stay in place thanks to the automatic paper clamp. Meanwhile, the adjustable backstop makes it easy to cut repeatedly when needed.

  • And to top it all off, the 558 is backed by a limited lifetime warranty.


  • While this device's cutting length is definitely a strength, it's also a bit of a weakness because it means that the cutter is extremely large and will take up a lot of room. This cutter measures 58.5" x 14.125" so finding a large enough surface for it might be difficult. Luckily, the cutter can be mounted on a wall and you can even purchase a floor stand for it.

  • The 558 isn't that heavy - it only weighs 27 pounds. However, it may be challenging to move it around because of its size.

The Dahle 558 Professional Rolling Trimmer is great for cutting large items. This device has a great cutting capacity so you'll be able to take care of a lot of sheets at once. The self-sharpening blade is safe to use and it's great that there's an optional roll holder for this device. Your job will be easier thanks to the cutting guides and paper clamp. Finding a large enough space for it is going to be the one difficult thing about using this trimmer, so you may want to consider purchasing a stand for it. Other than that, the 558 has a lot going for it. Take a look at it today.

Thank you for your question. This is not the ideal cutter for gator/mat boards. We would suggest looking at specific mat cutters for any board cutting needs.
