With harvest in Colorado just around the corner, there's no shortage of decisions to be made! When is the right time to harvest, how will you store it, how long you need to cure it.
But you can't store your harvest and cure it without trimming it first!
For the former, it is mainly preference. Trimming dry or wet is more of a personal choice and different growers will express the pros and cons of each method.
Trimming by hand or with a machine on the other hand can be a much simpler decision, dependent on the size of your operation. It might only take a few hours to trim up 6 plants, but 6,000 plants? That's a lot of time, and a lot of hands.
In a large scale operation, you might pay a dozen people to trim it all by hand which can take days, but a bud trimming machine can get the same work done in mere hours. But what about the quality?
The biggest complaint we hear from those who prefer hand trimming to bud trimming machines is that you can't get the same quality trim with a bud trimming machine. However the quality of bud trimming machines has improved exponentially.
You can achieve a great looking, well-manicured harvest with a bud trimming machine these days, as long as your using the right one. Here are three of the best bud trimming machines for getting a quality trim without doing damage to your harvest.
GreenBroz Model M Dry Trimmer
The GreenBroz Model M Dry Trimmer is designed to closely mimic the act of hand trimming your harvest while at the same time increasing the consistency and efficiency of your harvest process.
While the Model M is primarily designed to be gentle, quiet, and extremely easy to clean, the 16 pounds per hour capacity allows you to trim as quick as anyone in the game.
Their patented blade design features surgical grade stainless steel which allows for the gentle rolling of the flower maintaining the natural curves and integrity of your product.
You can trim over 16 pounds per hour with the Model M, and it's easy to take apart for cleaning.
Twister BatchOne Dry Trimmer
If 16 pounds per hour just won't cut it, the Twister BatchOne Dry Trimmer will exceed your expectations.
With the ability to trim up to 88 pounds dry per hour, the BatchOne allows you to move through your harvest quickly so you can accelerate your time to market and maximize your return on investment. The BatchOne is designed with ultra-fine saddle adjustments and paired with a ¼ HP motor which prevents stalling, to provide the confidence needed to walk away while achieving the industry’s tightest batch style trim.
Everything from the ease of loading and unloading product from both sides, to a removable control box for simplified wash down and even 360 rotating casters makes BatchOne portability a dream.
