Choosing the Best Cannabis Trimmer Machine for your Operation

Choosing the Best Cannabis Trimmer Machine for your Operation

Oct 12th 2023

Let’s face it: Purchasing a cannabis trimmer machine is a big investment, so it’s important to choose a trimming machine that works best for your cannabis processing operation. Purchasing a bud trimmer machine can improve efficiency for your cannabis business or cultivation operation by reducing the time you spend trimming by hand. 

Python Industries offers a variety of bladeless bud trimmer machines for different purposes and harvest sizes. 

How to Choose the Best Cannabis Trimmer Machine for the Job 

When it comes to choosing the best cannabis trimmer machine, are you not sure what you’re looking for? Don’t worry — we’ve been in this industry a long time, and we have a few tips on things to consider before making your purchase.

1. Will you be wet trimming or dry trimming cannabis? 

First and foremost, the trimming method you choose might determine the machine you need. 

  • If you’re dry trimming, you might consider the TTT 5000 GMP, our newest batch trimmer capable of dry-trimming over 50 pounds of cannabis per hour. 
  • However, the majority of our trimmers can be used for both styles of trimming. For example, the TTT 2600 Trimmer is ideal for larger-sized operations, as it can trim up to 60 pounds of dry cannabis or 180 pounds wet per hour. 

2. How much cannabis will you be trimming?

The size of your bud trimmer machine will depend on the volume of flower your cannabis operation produces. 

Luckily, Python Industries provides a number of trimmers for operations of various sizes. For instance:

  • TTT 1600 Hand Crank Trimmer: best for small batches; this manual trimmer machine trims up to 10 lb dry and 30 lb wet per hour
  • TTT 1900 Trimmer: ideal for small to medium-sized growers; this cannabis trimmer machine trims up to 20 lb dry and 60 lb wet per hour
  • TTT 2100 Trimmer: perfect for medium to large-sized growers; this bud trimming machine trims up to 30 lb dry and 90 lb wet per hour
  • TTT 2600 Trimmer: best for large growers; this automated trimmer machine trims up to 60 lb dry and 180 lb wet per hour

Still not sure which of our bud trimmer machines fits your needs? You might want to give our harvest calculator a try – ust enter the number of pounds you produce each harvest, and the number of harvests per year, and we’ll calculate your total harvest and recommend a cannabis machine trimmer that’s perfect for your cannabis processing operation! 

3. Do you need a portable or stationary bud trimmer machine?

Most trimmer machines are designed to be used regularly in your place of operation. In other words, they can be heavy (think 200+ pounds for large-capacity trimmers)! 

While you certainly won’t be trimming large batches at a time (up toonly 17 pounds), this manual bud trimmer is perfect for small spaces or moving from place to place. This bud trimmercan produce up to 10 pounds of dry cannabis (or 30 lb wet) per hour. 

It fits conveniently on a table or countertop and doesn’t require electricity or a battery charge. Does it get any easier than that?

4. What is your budget for a trimmer machine? 

It probably goes without saying that the larger the capacity, the higher the price tag.

  • Our smallest trimmer machine (the TTT 1600, listed above) is the least expensive, and our priciest model is the TTT 5000 GMP – trimming over 50 pounds of dry cannabis per hour. 

If you’d prefer to start small, you might consider purchasing a smaller capacity trimmer to supplement your hand-trimming. However, it’s also important to remember that a trimming machine ultimately helps increase your profits and reduce overhead: investing in the right size trimmer will mean less time and money spent on hand-trimming, and more high-quality cannabis bud ready for sale in a shorter amount of time.

5. Do you want an automatic bud trimmer system?

If you’re interested in automated cannabis processing, you’ve come to the right place. Our automatic bud trimmer machines achieve hand-trimmed quality without the hassle and in a fraction of the time! 

Our cannabis trimmer’s bladeless machine process uses friction between the cannabis to gently break off sugar leaves, while preserving the natural structure of each bud. Further, our bladeless, automatic bud trimmer machine’s algorithms are designed to adjust to various bud sizes and densities, ensuring consistent results with each batch of cannabis trimmed. Additional bud trimmer parts and accessories are available to further optimize your cultivation’s operation.
