Where can we see the M108?

Please visit us at the Lift Expo in Vancouver, January 13-14. We’ll also be at Cannacon in Seattle, February 15-17.

What is the price of the M108?

MAP pricing is $27,000 USD and $28,500 CAD. Please contact us via the contact form for more information on dealer and LP pricing.

When can I place a pre-order?

We’ll be accepting pre-orders on January 30. If you’d like to be notified when pre-ordering details are available, please let us know via the contact form.

When will production be at full capacity?

Our production line will be at full capacity in May, 2018. That doesn’t mean you’ll have to wait until then before you get your M108, it just means we won’t be cranking them out at full-speed until that point, so there may be some delays.

When can we see video of it working?

We’ll be posting video and lots of other content of the Mobius Trimmer M108 in action over the coming weeks and months.

Is it loud?

Yes. It’s loud.

The Argument for Tandem

2018 - May - 9

If you’re a large commercial cannabis cultivator and you need to process several thousand pounds of product per day you will likely be running two M108s at the same time. But the question we keep getting is whether they should be operated side-by-side, or in tandem (attached front to back.) There are reasonable use-cases for both scenarios, but when possible, we encourage people to operate their M108s in tandem. Here are a few reasons why:

 

  1. Feed rate gains – When operating M108s in tandem, you might expect that you would double your feed rate to maintain the same trim quality as running a single M108 - but that is not the case. Our testing has shown that you more than double your feed rate, about 10% more than double, to do the same quality job.

Feed Rate

Tandem (2 x M108s)

Side-By-Side (2 x M108s)

Wet

145-264 lbs/hr

132-240 lbs/hr

Dry

48-96 lbs/hr

44-48 lbs/hr

(READ: Why such a large range? Read our blog about feed rate measurement)

  1. Labour costs – To be able to consistently load 2 x M108s in a side-by-side configuration, you need two people feeding them, one for each machine. Not so for a tandem configuration. One employee can load the single hopper on the lead machine, or load a conveyor to easily maintain a consistent feed rate.

  2. Time in the Tumbler – You might think that if you have product running through two M108s it would be in the tumbler for twice as long, but that’s not true. When running in tandem, you will be feeding the machine at over double the rate of a single machine, as well as increasing the tilt angle of the tandem machines. Each of these factors increase the rate the product moves through the machines. Product will, in fact, spend less time running through the tandem setup as it would compared to running through a single machine.

  3. Space – This is often the most important reason to run machines in tandem. You take up less space. Typical commercial setups will use conveyors at the input and output of each machine. In a tandem configuration only one set of conveyors is needed, but when running machines side-by-side you would require two sets. Space saved from your trimming equipment footprint is space that can be used for other revenue generating activities.

Every situation is different, but through our testing and experience we continue to recommend using a tandem configuration when operating multiple M108s.
