GCM Gentle Cut Mini Bucking Machine

A scaled down version of our best selling GC1 Bucker, the GC Mini Bucker is as powerful as it is affordable.

This de-budder cuts the flowers off the stem, rather than popping them off, which prevents the large crown buds from breaking apart and preserves the look of your flower.

The brand new CenturionPro GC Bucker is an operator-run de-stemming machine that requires the operator to apply gentle pressure to feed the stem in the machine.

GC refers to “Gentle Cut” as we appreciate and understand how delicate your flowers are.

Similar to scissors, this Bucker cuts the flowers off the stem, as opposed to pulling and popping them.

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 bucker also comes with a cleaning system which removes and collects all debris into a vacuum bag, making clean up a breeze.

The system is easy to set up, clean, requires little maintenance and comes with a 5 year warranty.

The GCM Mini is not compatible with a stand

Preparation for using the GC Buckers & Tip for Dry Bucking

Environment Preparation

  • Ensure adequate space
  • Review electrical requirements
  • Have adequate bins for product transport
  • Cooler temperatures in processing room is beneficial
  • Plant Preparation

Cut main stalk

  • Separate each individual stem (no 'y' junctions)
  • Leave 3" of stem for clearance into machine
  • Ensure clean angled cuts for precise feeding

Feeding

  • Keep prepped product stem side up for efficiency
  • Size the stem to fit the ideal hole
  • Feed end first into machine
  • Use variable speed control to adjust flow

Moisture Content

  • Moisture content is critical for ensuring minimal damage to the flower
  • Flower that is too dry will fall apart
  • Flower that has too much moisture will compact and dent
  • For best results with dry bucking, moisture content should be between 12% and 14% when using a machine

Bud Consistency

  • Buds should be "springy"- when the flower is squeezed between two fingers it will rebound and return to its original shape
  • Both big and smaller stems must be pliable when bucking with a machine such as a GC or HP System
  • Pliable stems ensures that they fold and are stripped upon entering the bucking machine. If too brittle, they will simply break off and will not be properly stripped

Machine Speed

  • Slowing the machine speed for dry bucking will lead to a better result
  • Dry bucking at 1/2 or 1/3 of the regular speed will ensure better results
  • The variable speed control offered by our HP Bucker is a great feature when bucking dry material
