I’ve harvest several times in the past and trimming is time-consuming and it is physically hard.
I saw trim bag or trim bucket, price tag $300.00+ If I have many plants to trim, I would consider buying one of this even at a high price. Then, I saw this video (DIY trimming bucket) There are pros and cons to using trimming tools, I am sure… But if it works and no need to spend $300+ (DIY trimming bucket cost about $5.00), why not use it?
Is there anyone here who has experience using such a tool?
Here is one of the positive reviews on using the Trimming tool.
…I got mine today and tried it out. The superior product works amazing and is very comfortable to use. For everyone who says you lose trichomes…well you don’t lose any more than your handling of the product. I can hand trim a bud and pull one out of the trim bag and there is ABSOLUTELY no difference. …
wouldn’t the trichomes be shaken out as well…?
Trichomes tend to bend at room temperature and snap when frozen since we are not freezing the buds, the loss is minimal.
I believe no matter what you do you’re always doing some damage to them just try to keep it minimal.
Also depends on what other processing you plan on doing. For me, everything except the buds will go into an alcohol bath so really nothing is lost. Anything falling off the bud ends up in the RSO and 75% of my buds end up in my rosin press
