Cut the plant at the base of the stalk and hang upside down
from a line or rope until it is dry. If you are in a dry climate, your product
will dry quickly. In Southern California,
for example, it takes 4-5 days. If you are in a humid climate you should have a
moisture-controlled room and it may take longer.
STEP 2: De-BUDDING FROM BRANCHES
After the plant is dry – water leaves and trim around the
buds are brittle) then take off the water leaves first. Cut buds from branches and place in a plastic
bag or container. Discard branches and
STEP 3: TRIMMING BUDS
Make sure the buds have about 5-10% moisture on the
inside. The outside trim around the buds
should be brittle. Place the recommended
amount of product in the mesh barrel on the trimmer. You should have at least 2 inches between the
product and the axle. Never place more than this in the trimmer as it can
overwork your product. Turn the speed control to your desired speed and watch
it tumble for 2-3 minutes. Trimming will start immediately, as you will see
trim passing through the mesh, down through the funnel bag into your catch
bin. Open the zipper in the mesh and
check your buds. Some strains trim in
less than 5 minutes, so don’t over tumble!
If it is not ready, zip up the net and begin tumbling for another 2-3
minutes. Stop and check the buds at any
time in the tumbling; it does not disturb the process. It is more important to
stop tumbling earlier than necessary than it is to over tumble. When the amount of trim begins to slow
through the mesh and you see kief begin to pass through the mess, it is time to
stop tumbling. Your product should be about 85% trimmed at this point, with very
little trichomes or crystal lost. After
you put our trim into another container, put an empty container under the trimmer,
unzip the mesh barrel and turn on the motor until your trimmed product falls into
STEP 4: ISOLATING POPCORN SIZE
Unzip the net completely (only one zipper comes completely
apart; the other stays together by design) and pull the net from the velcro on
the drums. Replace this net with the ¼” mesh net. Put your trim into this net,
zip it up and tumble on high speed. The trim will flow through the mesh quickly
and any popcorn size nuggets will remain in the barrel. Remove the clean trim from below and put a
clean container underneath the trimmer. Unzip the zippers and turn on the motor
to release your popcorn size nuggets into the clean container.
STEP 5: ISOLATING KIEF
Lastly, Replace the ¼” mesh net with the 110 or 151 micron
kief mesh and put a clean catch basin below the funnel flow bag. Freeze your final trim and pour it into the
barrel with the kief mesh. Fill the
barrel until it is to the axle. If you have a dust cover/kief catcher be sure
to put it on the trimmer. Turn the
trimmer on full speed and let it tumble for your desired time or until the kief
stops passing through the mesh. The Kief will slowly pass through the kief mesh
and through the funnel flow bag into your container. It will also be on the inside of the dust
cover and on the funnel flow bag. You
can scrape this or gently wipe it into your container.

Choosing the right model size for you is entirely dependent on two things: 1) your weekly volume and 2) how much you like trimming. While our TTT 1900 is the most popular model in recent years, this model is best for grower who trim 10-40 pounds at a time. It does 2 pounds per cycle. If you trim less than this, the TTT 1600 is for you. If you trim more than this, the TTT 2200 (2-4 pounds per cycle) or the TTT 2600 (3-6 pounds per cycle) are best for you.
