Triminator Launches the First Lubricant Free Cannabis Trimming Machine for Urban and Craft Growers

The compact and easily portable Triminator Mini Dry provides a fast and cost-effective dry trimming option.

Triminator, an international provider of cannabis trimming and harvesting automation announced the debut of their newest machine, the Triminator Mini Dry. The Mini Dry trimmer combines the industrial grade quality features from their commercial line in a compact size to offer urban and boutique cannabis growers a professional trimming solution. Triminator’s proprietary cutting composite eliminates the needs for lubricants while providing the closest cutting clearance in the industry.

According to research from the ArcView Group, a cannabis industry investment and research firm based in Oakland, California, cannabis is the fastest growing industry. The report noted that the U.S. market for legal cannabis grew 74 percent in 2014 to $2.7 billion, up from $1.5 billion in 2013. The report further noted there was a 32 percent increase in 2015, and by 2019 all of the state-legal marijuana markets combined have the potential for an overall market worth of almost $11 billion annually. In addition, the cannabis industry is seeing an increase in smaller scale grow operations that cultivate rare or specialized strains and an equal rise in conscious consumers who seek an artisanal, organic and pure product.

“The market lacked a trimming machine that offered a pure, lubricant-free trim that could also provide hand-quality precision in a small, affordable package,” says Dana Mosman, co-founder and CEO of Triminator. “We engineered the Triminator Mini Dry to provide those growers a cost-effective and fast solution for the tedious hand trimming phase of the harvest.”  

Triminator Mini Dry trims two to four pounds an hour depending on strain and the leaf to calyx ratio. The best hand trimmers trim around two pounds in a day’s work, which simply isn’t sustainable for many grow operations that wish to hold a competitive edge in the market while still maintaining a close and clean trim. Like previous machines launched by Triminator, the Mini Dry trimmer underwent hundreds of hours of rigorous testing in real-life and extreme conditions by both new and experienced operators to determine any potential points of failure and to receive operator feedback.

“We’re a family owned business and we take pride in what we do and believe that anything worth doing is worth overdoing,” says Don Mosman, co-founder and president of Triminator.

Pricing for the new Mini Dry trimmer starts at $2,799 and is available directly through Triminator by calling 530-265-4277 and through select dealers. A list of dealers is also available on the company’s website at
