I think it will give you a better quality return with a lot less plant matter. But it's not entirely neccessary. Depends on what you want. You will lose a tad bit in the bags. But in my opinion its worth it in quality
First off I love the press, I already want to go bigger. I was watching a lot of videos on smashing but experiencing it first hand is the only way to get good at what temp for what consistency. (Freshness of flower has everything to do the your clarity of return). Have fun and press on brothers and sisters
The color, flavor and yields are great. I was skeptical but I’m blown away. Clean meds and made in America.
Very satisfied with product. Quick assembly with quality products. Plates heat up very evenly. Highest pressure available. LCD screens are straight forward with programmable options. Only been running about a week but so far very satisfied.
arrived very well packaged and in a timely fashion.. impressive results! recomend to any home enthusiests.
The machine came with a bad fitting hopper and the replacement did not help. Would've gave it a 3 star, but the shipping on replacement hopper and original machine was terrific. Performance wise, it trims anything that isn't shaped onto the bud for example if a fan leaf if sticking out or there exists a longer stem they would be trimmed. The trim isn't clean on stems. You will need to run it through more than once. Do not recommend this if you are looking to trim most of the leafs as it does not get rid of anything that is shaped to the buds curvatures. The vacuum is also fairly strong so you would need to turn it off for the last bit to run through. (Dry trimming review)
Works great. Recieved the trimmer in 2 days . Fast shipping and quality customer service. Would recommend trimleaf!
Everything works good could be a bit better I feel like the knob could be a bit more tight feels like it will break near in the future but otherwise good press
The NugSmasher Original 12 Ton Manual Rosin Tech Press arrived promptly, and was packaged very securely; it had some shipping labels that identified what it was and that was a bit discerning, but we got over it.
Pressed some flower at the preset temp for about 1minute 45 seconds, and the rosin came out dark. The harder that you are willing to crank the handle down the better, so if you are weak or have arthritis, this might not be the one for you.
We lowered the temp to 192degrees and pressed super hard for exactly 1 minute 10 seconds and get an entirely different outcome, very sticky and almost clear. We are still working the learning curve of what we want and what we expect.
We pressed the the remains a second time to yield more, and made butter with the remains after the second pressing. It has paid for itself already.
We are considering bolting it or mounting it, so it is easier to crank down on it.
It is this autor's opinion that the pressure (tonnage or PSI) is a very important variable to one's yield. lower the heat the more flavor and essence is retained. Olive oli is cold pressed at 4000 psi, so that should tell you something, but one can only buy what one can afford.
Overall, you will not be dissappointed; this company is on the up and up. Hope this helps ya'll... peace out and burn one for me! Casey and Carl
Great machine for the price. Not sure about it running the amount it says an hour nevertheless well worth its pricetag.
The nug smasher is a must to have for anyone who enjoys medicating as much as I do. All natural. No butane. Makes awesome rosin. Very very sturdy. Well made, n put together. Easy to use. Heavy thing but I like it heavy. Friends n family be jealous. Everything about it is what I was hoping for. Lots of YouTube videos to help. Squish bags at a good price. Warranty is a plus.
Once we git it set to our liking it worked like a dream..fast, efficent, and worth every last penny!
The Nugsmasher is so easy to use. As a person who likes edibles this is the best way to know dosages. Consistent results each time.
Works like a charm, but seems a little expensive for what it is. Three pieces of metal without an apparatus to apply pressure to create an awesome pre-pressed mold. You can use your hands, but I found that using a clamp/vice makes a substantial difference. I am not an expert. I just started squishing. I am giving it 4 stars because it feels like a money grab add on.
Damn I love my nugsmasher. I'm a medical patient and I have been smashing all sorts of different strains. Honestly folks my returns with the mini are fantastic! I'm pulling high 20% returns regularly. I've always wanted to try some rosin versions of some strains and now I get to enjoy rosin anything!!! Btw I named my nugsmasher The Hulk. HULK SMASHHHHHH
From the time I called and ordered the XP to delivery was 3 days! After opening the well packaged unit, going over the instructions, then plugging it in; we started small and within an hour we were getting 20% yields on 14 gram presses! This is a well made product and it’s backed by an efficient distributor and manufacturer. Five Stars are not enough for all involved. Thank you!!!
Arrived quickly and undamaged!!
Even though it took me about 20 minutes just to unpack it, I was very glad to see the effort taken to keep my Nugsmasher XP w/starter kit safe for it's trip.
After unpacking, it was very easy to begin pressing and I'll just say WOW!!!
With the pure, clean results I'm getting and a slight 1.9% percent higher return on a same exact plant comparison, I'll never subject my precious nugs to gas and solvents again!!!
Not everything is perfect, but every one at Trimleaf, are true professionals and stand up to there warrantry thank you very much,and also Nugsmascher. Yours truely,Scott A. Shaw
