Frequently Asked Questions
Which model is best for me?
First, scroll down to the “Which Model is Right for You?” calculator on our Why Tom's page.
Choosing the right model size depends on two things:
- Your weekly volume
- How much you like trimming
While our TTT 1900 is the most popular model in recent years, this model is best for growers who trim 10-40 lbs at a time. It does 2 lbs per 5-minute cycle or 12-15 lbs per hour. If you trim less than this, the TTT 1600 might be for you. If you trim more than this, the TTT 2100, with 2-4 lbs per cycle, or the TTT 2600, with 3-6 lbs per cycle, are best for you.

How do I prepare buds for my tumbler?
STEP 1. CUTTING AND HANGING
Cut the plant at the base of the stalk and hang upside down from a line or rope until dry. If you are in a dry climate, your product will dry quickly. In Southern California, it takes 4-5 days. If you are in a humid climate, you will need a moisture-controlled room.
STEP 2: De-BUDDING FROM BRANCHES
After the plant is dry, trim around the buds and take off the water leaves. Cut the buds from the branches and place them in a plastic bag or container. Discard the branches and water leaves.
STEP 3: TRIMMING
Make sure the buds are brittle on the outside. If the sugar leaves bend, they will not trim well. Reduce the humidity in the room and dry your material for a few hours longer.
Place the recommended amount of product in the mesh barrel on the trimmer. You should have 2-3 inches between the product and the axle. Do not overfill the chamber.
Adjust the speed control to your desired speed and watch it tumble for 2-3 minutes. Trimming will start immediately, as you will see trim passing through the mesh, down through the funnel bag, and into your catch bin. At 2-3 minutes, you should stop the machine, open the zipper, and check the trim level on your buds to avoid over-tumbling. If the trimming is not complete, tumble for another 2 minutes and check again. Tom recommends the highest speed for most buds (35rpm) and slower speeds for light or wafey flower.
When the amount of trim begins to slow through the mesh and you see kief begin to pass through, it is time to stop. Your product should be about 85% trimmed at this point with very few trichomes or crystals lost. After you put the trim into another container, set an empty container under the trimmer, unzip the mesh barrel, and turn on the motor until your trimmed product falls into your bin.
STEP 4: ISOLATING POPCORN SIZE NUGGETS
Unzip and pull the net from the velcro on the drums. Replace this net with the ¼ inch mesh net. Put your trim into this net, zip it up, and tumble at high speed. The trim will flow through the mesh quickly and any popcorn size nuggets will remain in the barrel. Remove the clean trim from below and put a clean container underneath the trimmer. Unzip and turn on the motor to release your popcorn size nuggets into the clean container.
STEP 5: ISOLATING KIEF
Place the kief net on the barrel and put a clean catch bin below the funnel flow bag. To prepare your trim for kiefing, you can freeze it overnight, use a handful of dry ice, or use our CO2 adapter kit with your liquid nitrogen tank to flash-freeze your trim.
Fill the barrel until it is 2 inches below the axle. If you have a dust cover/kief catcher, be sure to put it on the trimmer. Turn the trimmer on full speed and let it tumble for your desired time or until the kief stops passing through the mesh. The kief will slowly pass through the mesh and funnel flow bag into your container. It will also be on the inside of the dust cover and on the funnel flow bag. Scrape or gently wipe it into your container.
