The PYTHON is the fastest and highest volume hemp and cannabis dry trimmer in the world today!
The Python’s unique patented bladeless technology allows it to trim between 350 to 500 pounds per hour (depending on strain) while producing a well-trimmed flower and clean (uncontaminated) trim.
The PYTHON’S trimming mechanism unlike other trimmers brands that utilize blades allows the flowers/buds to quickly and yet gently trim each other, producing a more natural hand trimmed looking flower.
The Python is manufactured as a heavy-duty agricultural machine with all high quality food grade parts, including stainless steel construction, food grade plastics and wash down motors.
The PYTHON frame and feed hopper are made of 100% - Stainless Steel. All other parts are food grade. All motors and gearboxes are wash-down. Each unit comes with various size food grade plastic and stainless steel meshes for versatility. Meshes are durable, and commercial grade.
The full PYTHON unit including the hopper feeder is 16ft. and 3in. long.
Main Trimmer Unit ......................................................... 8.8ft. x 4ft. x 5.8ft.
Detachable Hopper with Auger and Connector .............. 8ft. x 4ft. x 4.5ft.
Food-Grade Trim Catch Conveyor Belt under Machine ..... 8ft. x 3ft. x 3ft.
Trimmer & Hopper Weight ............................................................ 1,200 lb.
We recommend allowing 5 feet on the loading end of the trimmer / hopper on all sides to allow room for loading untrimmed flowers and filling totes or bags with trim and trimmed buds. The PYTHON should be fed continuously so it is important to have hundreds of pounds of material ready to load.
Allow 4-5 feet at the end of the PYTHON for catch bags to catch trim and buds, and have bags / bins ready to replace. Remember the PYTHON processes very quickly.
Various Horse Power wash-down motors drive the two augers, tumbler trommel and conveyor belt. Electricity 110 AC, two 15 amp receptacles required. Two outlets are needed to power the PYTHON. Connect two motors only one per outlet recommended.
Heavy tires and castor wheels for easy transport
Optional Add on Features
Full 3 Year Warranty on the PYTHON with Fast Response for Replacement Parts or Service.
PREPARING THE BUDS/FLOWERS. Make sure flowers/buds to be trimmed are bucked down (free of large water leaves, branches) and sugar leaves are dry and brittle (sugar leaves should not be not flexible at all). Dryness inside the buds should be 5 to 10 percent
moisture ideally but again sugar leaves need to be brittle for the Python to allow bud/flowers to trim each other as they tumble and move through each section of the cylinder(trommel). Make sure you trim in an environment where humidity is low and will not rehydrate the sugar leaves on the flowers buds. Rehydrating sugar leaves will make them flexible again and then they will not trim properly or at all, and may jam the feed auger tube.
FEEDING THE PYTHON. All motors should be on and running their corresponding components. (conveyor, augers, and cylinder) You are now ready to feed the PYTHON. To test a quality run, and to make fine adjustments, make sure you feed a few hundred pounds into the feed hopper and through the Python. This can be accomplished by continually
feeding the hopper as to to keep in relatively full. The first section of the cylinder should be at least half full always to ensure proper trimming.
FINE TUNING ADJUSTMENTS
A All components (screw augers, conveyors, and cylinder/trommel) have adjustable speeds controls for fine tuning. The trommel should always be rotating between 30 and 35 rpms. The screw auger feed should be adjusted so product flow in first section is always around half full. The conveyor and top screw auger (anti-bridge auger) in hopper should be on full speed.
B Various size and type of material for meshes allows for more and less aggressive trimming, as well as different size flowers to be trimmed. We recommend the Stainless steel ½ inch mesh on first section and food grade plastic ½ inch mesh on second and third sections of trommel/cylinder for best trimming.
The PYTHON should be fed dried flower into the feed hopper on a continuous basis. The speed at which the flowers flow into the PYTHON is adjustable, but a continuous flow of flower is needed for the Python to work best. One should adjust speed control on feed auger so the first section is always at least half full. The concept being, the buds trim each other better when there is more weight in each section. The weight and tumbling of the buds rubbing against each other is the mechanism through which the tumbler works.
The PYTHON processing speed has various adjustments. The controls for these are in the metal motor box on the side of the PYTHON. All motors have adjustable speed controls, thus allowing for fine adjustment of the flow of flowers into machine as well as how fast flowers trim each other. Press green to turn the motor on and red to stop it. Turn the black button to adjust the speed.
The PYTHON also has an adjustment to change the angle of the trommel allowing gravity to slow down or speed up the trimming process. Gravity is used to move the buds through the chambers from the beginning to the end of the PYTHON as the PYTHON is angled optimally to support this movement.
