There has been a debate raging for years now about wet trimming vs dry trimming. Which causes less impact to the flower? Which is more efficient? Which is BETTER? We’ll just stay out of it, and let you decide the best process for your product and your facility. That’s why the Mobius Trimmer M108 has been built to trim both wet and dry, without any sort of additional parts or components. In fact, if you want to trim one strain dry, and the next day you’d like to trim another strain wet, then go for it.
When we began testing the M108 it was primarily in a wet trimming workflow. (You can see video from wet trimming sessions here.) Most of the big producers we were talking to were trimming wet, so it just made sense to start there. But right from the beginning the M108 had been designed to work in a dry trimming process as well.
One of the big concerns from those interested in dry trimming was the potential damage to the product. We were hearing horror stories from cultivators who had tried dry trimming machines, only to have them chew their flowers to bits. With the M108, if you want to make the trimming process gentler on your product, all you need to do is adjust the settings, (remember: vacuum pressure, tumbler speed, blade speed, and tilt are all adjustable on the Variable Function System.) Turn down the suction, turn down the tumbler speed, and raise the tilt. Your product will spend less time in the tumbler, and experience less aggressive impact as it moves through.
Another question we’ve received is the viability of the trim produced during dry trimming. That’s an easy one: 100%. The trim that goes through the separator and is deposited in the Trim Tote never passes through an impeller, and moves along smoothed internal surfaces on a cushion of air. It looks like it’s been cut with shears. It’s in perfect condition, and retains its value for use in extracts or pre-rolls.
Trim wet, trim dry, we’ll leave that up to you. Change your mind as many times as you’d like!
