Overview

De-Stem Your Plants Fast With The Munch Machine Mother Bucker

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 down time 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.


Benefits of the Munch Machine Mother Bucker

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 operateros 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 for 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.

Low maintenance. Field serviceable. Easy to clean.

We engineered the Mother Bucker to minimize maintenance, because downtime during harvest is not an option. The machine is designed to be field serviceable with common tools and basic mechanical ability. Cleaning is fast and easy whether power washing or scrubbing manually. Just clean the rollers daily, and it will give you many years of reliable service.

Integrated Conveyor System for Munch Machine Mother Bucker & Double Bucker

Purpose-Built to Work with Munch Machine Buckers

Conveyors increase workflow efficiency and are integral to many harvesting processes. Munch Machine conveyors allow the operator to keep bucking without stopping to empty bins. If you buck directly into a trimmer, the conveyor’s variable-speed motor can be adjusted to match the speed of your trimmer.

Munch Machine conveyors are fitted directly onto their buckers to form an integrated unit. The bed features a unique belt edge guard to keep debris away from the internals and the whole conveyor bed slides out and tilts down for fast and easy cleaning.

Ready for Your GMP Compliant Facility

Every surface on the conveyor that your material touches is GMP compliant: The stainless steel shielding funnel, belt material and the belt edge guard are made from FDA-approved, food grade materials. The electronics are also UL and CSA certified

The Munch Machine conveyor design is different and better. Unlike others, their conveyors attach directly to their standard setting Mother Bucker and Double Bucker, and move together as a single integrated unit.

Mother Bucker vs Double Bucker

The Mother Bucker sets the industry standard. This burly, no-nonsense machine is engineered to be a reliable workhorse. We know that downtime during a big harvest is not an option, so we designed the machine to run continuously with minimal maintenance. From indoor to outdoor grows, airy delicate strains to hearty hemp trees, the Mother Bucker does it all.

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. You get all the features and reliability of the legendary Mother Bucker, while spending significantly less than buying two machines. We know that downtime during a big harvest is not an option, so we designed the machine to run continuously with minimal maintenance.

Munch Machine Mother Bucker Reviews

best investment for my harvest process
this allows me to keep up with my t2, and has shortened my harvest from close to 1 month to jut 1 week and a couple helpers! would buy again 100%

The best bucker I have used
This machine has made the biggest positive impact on my hemp harvesting process I can't even explain. The offroad wheels make it easy to move around the farm, and the machine itself is built like a tank. Heavy-duty everything. The HB team was also super helpful in my decision and they have always treated my right with my other orders for my indoor garden. Thanks!
