Operating the MBX Bucker
Bucking your Cannabis
How to start up and operate the Mobius MBX Bucker.
Step by Step
To get started, position the MBX in your work area, lock the casters and check that the front die plate and rear guard window are secured in place.
Plug the machine into a circuit that provides a full 15 amps of service.
Place a tote under the front of the machine to collect the flowers and leaves and a second tote under the back of the machine to collect the chipped stalks.
If the e-stop is engaged, release it and press the START button to fire up the chipper.
You should hear a ticking sound caused by the rotating chipper block making contact with the stationary block. This is a GOOD thing as it indicates that your chipper is properly adjusted. If you don’t hear this ticking sound on start-up, it might be time to adjust the alignment on the chipper.
Note: The ticking noise often diminishes or disappears completely during a run as the blocks warm up and become lubricated with resin from the stalks.
Press the forward button to start the rolls and rotate the speed dial to your desired setting.
For wet bucking this will likely be at or near the max speed of 11. If you are dry bucking, you will likely use a lower speed to pull the stalks through more gently.
Begin feeding the bottom end of your stalks into the holes in the die plate, trying to match the stalk with the smallest diameter hole that it will fit into.
Note: When you are preparing your stalks for bucking, you want to have the bottom 6 inches of the stalk clear to feed through the die plate and be caught by the rolls behind.
