The Mother Bucker was developed after 75 years of manufacturing harvest and processing equipment for the hops industry. Professionally engineered with the highest quality parts, our harvesting equipment provides years of reliable service with minimal maintenance.
The machine that introduced high capacity bucking to the industry, the “Mother Bucker” is an industrial-grade machine that is adaptable to all harvest methods. Designed to handle any size plant or grow operation, with enough adjustability to tune it from bucking high-quality flower to extracts. Made from the highest quality components and engineered to perfection, because we know that downtime during harvest is not an option. Proudly made in the USA by a company with 76 years’ experience building harvesting equipment.
Operation of the Mother Bucker is simple yet effective. Insert a stem in the appropriately sized die hole and the machine pulls it through, gently removing flowers from perfectly stripped stems. Variable speed control allows for versatility - slow the machine down for damage-free bucking of carefully dried plants, or speed it up for rapid bucking of freshly harvested stems. One machine for all your bucking needs: wet or dry.
The Mother Bucker can harvest up to 150 pounds per hour with the Single Bucker and up to 300 pounds per hour with the Double Bucker. It's incredibly versatile and can buck wet or dry. Easy clean up in less than 10 minutes so you can wrap up a long day of harvest quickly.
It is constructed from food-grade stainless steel and powder coated surfaces are durable and easy to clean. It features high-quality SealMaster bearings and Sumitomo Hyponic gearmotor.

Hear that? Neither did we. This machine operates incredibly quietly, and features forward and reverse operation to easily clear blockage. Munch Machine kept the operators well-being top of mind when designing the machine, adding a safety kill switch to ensure user safety. Both machines plug into a standard 110 volt, 20 amp circuit.
Multiple die holes match different diameter stems for perfect stripping, so regardless of how thick your stems are, you can buck fast. Designed to integrate with conveyor belts and trimmers.
Variable speed. Indoor and outdoor die plates. Gentle on flower.
With a wide speed range, the Double Bucker can be adjusted to work perfectly with the condition of your plants. When bucking fresh plants, turn the speed up and witness the power and grip of the Double Bucker. When bucking dry plants, turn the speed down and see how well the machine minimizes trichome loss.
Industry-leading power & grip
On average, our customers report they can buck 150 pounds per hour, wet. When harvesting extraction-quality material at high speed, customers have achieved 250 pounds per hour. Dry bucking will result in 25–60 pounds per hour, depending on your material. Check out the video to see the bucker in action.

The Double Bucker is designed for larger operations that need more harvesting capacity. The machine is essentially two bucking heads, with a more powerful central drive motor.

We know that downtime during a big harvest is not an option, so we designed the machine to run continuously with minimal maintenance.
Indoor and outdoor versions differ by the wheel-set only, the outdoor unit will have the 10" flat-free tires designed for off-road use, and the indoor will have 360° swivel casters designed for hard surfaces.
