    Default Trimming machines

    Hi guys and girls,

    was wondering if anyone has used any of the trimming machines out there, and if they are any good. I was originally sold on the EZ-wander trimmer but the misses raised the point that a hoover running most of the day is pretty loud and could raise some questions its also well expensive, she also thought all trimming machines would bash up our smoke so i left it. i helped my pal the other day trim his and remembered just how much i hate trimming. So i was back to the drawing board, i then thought if i got one of the bowl trimmers i could hand trim the main colas and chuck all the smaller bits in there best of both worlds. I went to get one and they didn't have one in stock but the guy said the Trimbag is the way to go, i knew nothing about the trim bag so i left it to see what its all about.

    kinda of started rambling a bit there, long story short which trimmers have you used, are they any good or are they shit.

    Thanks BBB

    It's a terrible job but its part and parcel of growing our own. Get a comfy chair, some food and drink, music on and trim away and enjoy the harvest.

    Unless you have 100 plants the size of trees, then fuck that get a machine ??



    When you do things right, people wont be sure you've done anything at all.

    Like Prime says... you spend months growing the best plant that you can.... why wreck it when a little TLC at the back end of the grow is all that's required

    Trimming kinda gives me an excuse to be lazy. I haven't watched TV for many years but when I trim I put BBC iplayer on the lap top earphones in and sit on my arse for a few days. Wife brings me cups of tea and sandwiches which she never normally does. So yes it is a relaxing few days.

    I enjoy it if the crop is nice with firm buds but if it is shit then I just want it to be over.

    Nothing worse than trimming airy buds by hand. Torture! I get the wife involved. Both set up with trays and buds, music on, bongs, joints, food and drinks. Bonding lol.

    use a machine and you'll probably lose more thc than you'll save especially with a sticky girl,
    chopping is the final step, don't wanna rush it, sit back relax and enjoy

    Started watching that murder mountain, its good tbf but ive moved away from it atm

    Trimming airy buds is a ball ache, i much prefered dry trimming tbf... especially if its dry enough for all the trim to just crumble away takes 2 minutes!

    Thanks for all the info, so everyone is pretty much saying what i thought they would say. i was hopping someone would have an amazing solution to this problem. i still think i'm going to use bowl trimmer for the smaller stuff. simply because personally i find my quality of trimming deteriorates the longer i'm there. so i think ill start with tops and have them all well trimmed. and chuck the smaller popcorny type stuff in the trimmer at least that way the majority of it will be top quality.

    I use the Ultra Spin Pro, can't imagine pulling without it.

    Pull off fan leaves, snip buds into the bowl place lid on and give it 25 turns. Job done.

    I don't worry about any loss because anything that is fluff and would have dried to nothing anyway falls through and ends up as oil.

    Hmm trim machines not sold on those at all. .... 0

    The more you touch and rub those buds the quality goes down . Heck they spin in a dome like a bingo ball machine bouncin and hittin blades . Good for large commercial ops where the qual is nowhere near us percy growers . Theres never any trichs left on their buds ...

    i still use mine ,when i have more than one plant to do,but then i still have fkd hands,no surprises there ,once bits of you wear out or get broken they stay that way .
    like said somewhere above,the stuff that makes it through the screen is very usable in my ecig juice,so i dont lose anything at all.

    plus me having said fkd hands means im not fondling my buds in any other way,i rarely even need gloves nowdays, so swings n roundabouts in my veiw,you use the tools you need,simples.
