The Best Bucking Machines of Harvest 2024

If you are preparing for harvest this upcoming fall, you are undoubtedly overwhelmed with the rush of this season.

An important step before harvest is finding a powerful, efficient bucking machine to increase your productivity and ROI.

Whether you are harvesting, you need an efficient process for removing the stems from your plants.

You likely know all about trimming machines, but these days bucking is just important.

We’ve created a list of the best bucking machines for sale of harvest 2023. But first, let's cover a bit more about this relatively new piece of harvest equipment.

What Is Bucking?

A bucking machine, also known as a destemmer or a debudder. This piece of equipment efficiently removes the buds from the stems prior to trimming.

When harvest comes, there is always a lot of discussion about trimming, hand trimming, motor-powered trimming, and friction trimming.

Bucking can sometimes be an afterthought. In reality, if your destemming process is not on point, the efficiency of your whole harvest will suffer!

Whether you are hand or machine trimming, a bucker is an investment that will pay for itself after one harvest.

Anyone who wants to maximize their production during harvest should consider the art of bucking.

Why Do You Need A Bucking Machine?

If you have already have a trim machine, you have probably found that the increased efficiency is a major benefit.

However, you also have probably noticed that the most time-consuming part is removing the buds from the stems. This is where a bud bucker really shows it value.

If you have a wet or dry bud trimmer you should look into a bucking machine. Automating your bucking will take your harvest process to the next level.

Buckers do wonders for improving speed and efficiency. They also help reduce the number of workers you need to complete your harvest.

Which Bucking Machine Is Right For Your Harvest?

Choosing the best bucker for your operation will depend on a few factors. The size of your operation, your budget and what you plan to do with the bucked flowers all should be considered.

We are going to go over the key points of each machine and hope to narrow down your decision.

The number of feed holes, their largest available diameter, food-grade safe material, design, and overall usability will be our criteria.

Another factor you should consider when selecting your bucker is if the bucker processes both wet and dry flowers. Most bucking machines do both, but not all. Choosing one that does both gives you more flexibility in the future to destem flowers either way.

Tips & Tricks To Get The Best Results From A Destemmer Machine

The moisture content of your plant material can make a difference when bucking. If you are planning on using a wet trimming machine, this really won't be a factor. There is really no need to check the moisture content for trimming and bucking wet.

If you will be using a dry trimming machine, the moisture levels will play a factor. When trimming dry bud, manufacturers have moisture ranges that they recommend staying within. This helps to get the best results from bud trimming machines.

When trimming dry, you will also want to consider moisture percentages when bucking. This can significantly increase how well the bucking machine keeps the flowers intact. This will help preserve the quality of the end product.

What really sets Mobius apart from every other bucker on this list is the built-in chipper. Getting rid of your bucked stems at the end of the day is way easier. This is because this machine includes a chipper that break down the stems. It dices them down to a small size, making disposal simple.
