If you are ready to upgrade from manual trimming to automated trimming, it can be difficult to know how to choose the right machine for you. Here’s how to get started.
Factors to Consider
When choosing a trimmer for your cannabis operation, begin by thinking about the following factors.
Make a realistic budget for your equipment, and choose the highest quality trimmer within that budget that will do the job you need it to. If you have a small budget, you don’t have to settle for substandard quality. Centurion Pro Solutions sells certified pre-owned refurbished trimmers that go through rigorous testing to ensure that they are in excellent condition. Purchasing a refurbished trimmer at a discount is a great option for cannabis operations with a smaller budget.
Throughput describes the amount of cannabis that can be processed through a trimmer in a specific amount of time. All of CenturionPro’s trimmers have excellent throughput, but each model has a different capacity. The level of throughput you need depends on the size of your harvest. Make sure that you have a realistic idea of how big your harvest is going to be and exactly how much you’ll be trimming. Depending on the size of your operation, we have the trimmer that fits you, from small tabletop models to extra large industrial machines.
Make sure that the trimmer you choose is high quality and comes from a reputable manufacturer. CenturionPro is a leader in manufacturing cannabis trimmers, with optimal design, blade surface area, leaf collector horsepower and tumbler diameter. CenturionPro trimmers come with a warranty as well as access to technical support.
Types of Trimmers
Dry Batch Trimmers
Many cannabis producers prefer to exclusively dry trim their plants. This is because dry trimming typically yields a better quality, more potent product. However, dry trimming is a more time consuming overall process and requires significantly more space than wet trimming, so think about what type of trimming is best for your operation before choosing your trimmer. Dry batch trimmers are designed specifically for trimming dry cannabis and come in every size, for every cannabis operation.
If you would prefer to have the option of both wet and dry trimming, choose a hybrid trimmer. These machines are designed to efficiently trim cannabis either wet or dry. Wet trimming is a streamlined process and requires less space than dry trimming, so depending on your operation’s priorities, it may be beneficial to have the option of wet trimming as well as dry trimming. CenturionPro’s hybrid trimmers are efficient, durable, and simple to use.
