A lot of trimmers in the market focus on creating trimmers that can cater to both wet and dry buds. But Tom’s Tumble Trimmers is taking the opposite route.
Instead of having various machines, Tom’s Tumble Trimmers focuses on the dry bud market. Which, if you think about it, makes sense. As dry buds are harder to trim, Tom’s Tumble Trimmers can flex its muscles in the industry to provide trimmers that efficiently do the job. It protects trichomes, trims buds faster than wet and dry trimmers, and uses innovative features to produces remarkable outputs.
Given this focus, you’ll be surprised at how much the Tom’s Tumble Trimmers has achieved so much, given that they have been in the industry for less than ten (10) years.
A Brief History
Tom’s Tumble Trimmers is a bi new in the market, having been established in 2013 by Thomas Bruggemann, a cannabis grower and former Hollywood stuntman.
Bruggemann wanted a bud trimmer that can trim fast, without losing the trichomes in the buds. After several prototypes, Bruggemann came out with the bladeless, mesh net tumbler, that has since then sparked different variations.
Since then, Bruggemann has released eight (8) models of trimmers and sold thousands of his machines under his TTT Innovations Company. Aside from trimmers, his company has introduced CO2 infusion kits for some of its trimmers for faster work.
All the trimmers under the Tom’s Tumble Trimmers brand use the trademark bladeless and mesh system to achieve minimal loss in trichomes.
They currently have two (2) trimmer series, designed for different capacities.
Meet the Family: 1600, 1900, 2100, 2600 & 3000
The first is the dry bud trimmers, the original machines that put TTT Innovations on the map in the cannabis industry.
These dry bud trimmers are compact but powerful dry bud trimming solutions that can process up to 100 pounds an hour and come with pollen collectors.
Tom’s Tumble Trimmers takes pride in its five (5) dry bud trimmers.
The entry-level 1600 Trimmer is a hand-cranked machine that does not need electricity to operate.
As a tabletop-sized trimmer, you can go off-the-grid and continue trimming those buds. It can process around 1 pound per hour, making it ideal for small-time or personal growers.
You can kick things up a notch with the 1900 Trimmer.
With a bigger trimming capacity of 12 pounds an hour, the 1900 trimmer keeps a less compact profile that’s easy to assemble.
Another good thing about this trimmer is the ability to integrate CO2 infusion Kits that flash freeze your buds, leaving the leaves in a brittle state, for faster trimming.
The flagship trimmer of this series is the 3000 Dry Bud Trimmer, which can process up to 100 pounds of buds in an hour.
Like the other motorized trimmers in this series, the 3000 Bud Trimmer integrates with the CO2 Infusion Kit for more efficient trimming.
Other dry bud trimmers in this series are the 2100 and the 2600 Dry Bud Trimmers. These trimmers can handle up to 18 pounds and 36 pounds of buds in an hour, respectively, and work with the CO2 Infusion Kit.
Regardless of which Dry Bud Trimmer you get, all these machines are easy to maintain.
The mesh nets are machine-washable, and the pollen nets are cleanable with rubbing alcohol. And their zippers can be lubricated with beeswax and cooking oil spray.
The Dry Bud Trimmers come with a one-year warranty.
The latest innovation of the Tom’s Tumble Trimmers is the Python Trimmers.
The Python Trimmers is the brand’s response for industrial-sized solutions in the cannabis industry.
Like its smaller relatives, the Python uses bladeless and various sizes of mesh nets to produce near-perfect trims for your dry buds with minimal impact to your trichomes.
The Python uses a continuous feed system that automatically loads the buds into the chamber for trimming. It also features manual speed controls for the motors so you can match the power of the machine with your buds.
Since the Python works fast, you need to continuously feed it with buds to make the most of its capacity. Ideally, you should be loadings hundreds of pounds.
There are four (4) models in the Python range that all have the same features but differ in trimming capacities.
The Python 200 is the entry-level in the series, capable of handling 200 pounds per hour. The mid-tier is the Python 400, which has an hourly capacity of 400 pounds. On the higher-end is the Python 600, which can trim up to 600 pounds an hour.
The flagship model is the Python 1200, which has a maximum capacity of 1,200 pounds in an hour.
The Python Bud Trimmers comes with a three-year warranty.
Instead of competing in what is already a tight market or industry of wet and dry bud trimmers, Tom’s Tumble Trimmers did the right thing in focusing on dry buds.
The company can specialize in something and do it well enough to earn its niche.
And if you prefer working with dry buds when trimming, then Tom’s Tumble Trimmers should be on your list.
