The GC Mini Bucker is inspired by the GC1 Bucker, the industry?s first and only bucking machine designed specifically for use on dry product. Great for use on wet product also, GC refers to ?Gentle Cut? as we appreciate and understand how delicate flowers are. A scaled down version of our GC1 Bucker, the GCM Bucker is as powerful as it is affordable. This de-budder cuts the flowers off the stem, rather than popping them off. This cutting action prevents the large crown buds from breaking apart into smaller pieces, thereby keeping the complete structure of the buds fully intact preserving the look of your flower. The GC Mini Bucker accepts stems up to 3/8″ in diameter and will process up to 20 pounds of fully hydrated flower per hour! Foregoing the GC1 Bucker?s blower and mighty 0.5hp motor for improved portability, the GC Mini Bucker instead benefits from a 0.25hp motor that can produce up to 3,000 cuts per minute.
