A bucking machine, also known as a destemmer or a debudder, is a harvesting machine that efficiently removes the buds from the stems prior to trimming. When harvest comes, there is always a lot of talk about trimming, hand trimming, motor-powered trimming, and friction trimming. Bucking can sometimes be an afterthought, when really if your destemming process is not on point, the efficiency of your whole harvest will greatly suffer! Whether you are trimming by hand or with a commercial trimmer, a bud bucker is an investment that will certainly pay for itself after one harvest.
Anyone who wants to maximize their production during harvest should consider the art of bucking! Choosing the best bucker for your grow will depend on the size of your operation and budget. We are going to go over the key points of each machine and hope to narrow down your decision. The number of feed holes, as well as their largest available diameter, food grade safe materials and design and overall usability will be a few aspects we will be covering.
Trimworkz Ultimate Bud Bucker Machine
Designed and built in the beautiful state of Oregon, the TrimWorkz Ultimate Bud Bucker. Not only does this machine look like an industrial piece of art, it's proprietary multi-hole feed plate has an extended tube design for quicker, more gentle, flower removal. Quiet operation with low power draw keeps your grow under wraps. This machine also has variable speed control from 0-140 RPM for wet or dry usage.
The Bud Bucker drives both the top and bottom rollers, which makes the machine less likely to jam up and also prolongs the life of the rollers. The rollers are much larger in diameter than most designs, which increases the gripping surface for better performance.
The standard machine is great on its own with 15 feed holes, but Trimworkz also has their XL version, which is the largest bucker on the market with 30 feed holes! These holes have various sizes to fit your stalk (a presort is always recommended for the most efficient workflow). It's easy to clean, with no tools required to remove working surfaces, but it's unfortunately not food grade safe.
The Bud Bucker is designed for all-day use for large commercial grows and comes with a one year warranty. Shop the standard Trimwokrz Bud Bucker and the XL Bud Bucker.
