The Ez Trimmer works by utilizing a fan blade under its cutting blade that does several things. First, the fan blade creates suction to pull the leaf down through the grate and into the filtration bags, second, it creates a controllable vortex that assists in moving and dispersing the product as it’s trimmed, and lastly, it agitates the clipped leaf in the filtration bags helping to remove the trichomes as they are filtered through the bags.
The airflow is controlled with the airflow controller and small inner lids on the top of the machine. With one or both of the inner lids open the suction will increase and the vortex will decrease. This allows you to create a stronger vortex with wet or heavier product, or less of a vortex and more suction for dry or larfy product. In addition to the lids you can also adjust the airflow by changing the speed of the main motor.
The rotor and silicone fingers are used to help disperse and roll the product along the grate. The rotor speed and direction can be controlled. Slowing down the rotor will minimize agitation on delicate product, while running the rotor in reverse (Against the flow of the vortex) can create more agitation
In addition to the adjustability with the cutting blade, airflow and rotor fingers, the Ez Trimmer also comes standard with two different trimming grates. The wet grate is for wet trimming and is 1/16” thick and has ¼” openings and the dry grate is 1/16” thick and has ⅛” openings. The dry grate is placed on top of the wet grate when trimming dry.

The trim collection from the Ez Trimmer is unmatched by any other trimming machine. After being cut, the trim falls into a 4-layer trim sifting system that grades your leftovers from leaf to kief. Once in the bags, your trim remains undamaged by any sources of agitation like heat, compression, or movement. Being able to make high-quality extracts from your trim is key to maximizing the profits from your harvests.
The first bag collects the larger leaf and stem, this product is good for extraction but contains and separates the majority of you chlorophyll filled leaf. The second bag collects your sweet leaf and is excellent for extraction and pre-rolls. The third bag is your B grade keif and the fourth bag is your A grade keif. These bags can be utilized as a dry sifter and can help you control potency levels with extraction.

How it works:
Operation– Your product enters the Satellite (SL) through the lid on top. Directly below the grate is the cutting blade and below that is a fan blade. The fan blade generates both suction and an air vortex. The vortex, in combination with the thin, silicon, rotor fingers gently move and roll the product along the grate without any tearing or damage to the flowers. As the flowers pass over the beveled cutting slots in the grate, the suction pulls the leaves into the spinning blade trimming and depositing the leaves into the filtration system below. Once you determine the flower is sufficiently trimmed (30 seconds to 1.5 minutes), you lift the chute gate and the product exits into the chute assembly on the front of the machine.
Elements of Control:
Blade Speed / Airflow – There are three settings for the speed of the blade: low, medium and high. Increasing the speed of the blade will also increase the airflow (suction and vortex). The airflow can then further be adjusted by opening and closing the lids/vents on top of the machine. With the lid(s) open, there is more suction pulling the leaves through the grate. With the lids closed, there is more vortex moving the product around the drum. Based on the density or leafiness of the flowers and the variances between strains, you will find different blade speeds and/or lid positions are more effective in one instance over another.
Rotor – The rotor contains 4 sets of soft, flexible, ¼ inch, food-grade silicon fingers that assist in the movement of the product over the grate. It is mounted to a variable speed/reversible motor that allows you to adjust the rotor speed to match the desired airflow.
Blade Adjustment – The depth of the blade can be adjusted on-the-fly to accommodate different strains. Simply adjust the four knobs at the base of the motor mount for the trim setting you desire.
Cycle Time – The patented combination of vortex and rotor technologies gets the job done quickly delivering cycle times as low as 30 seconds. Shorter cycle times decrease the potential for damage to your product.
Unlike the other commercial trimmers on the market, the Satellite (SL) provides complete control over the amount of time your flowers are inside the machine. We recommend running smaller batches (2-3 handfuls) for shorter periods of time to reduce any potential for damage. Using this method, you will trim greater volumes in a shorter period of time while generating better results and the machine will stay cleaner longer – requiring less maintenance and downtime.
Filtration System – The Satellite (SL)’s filtration system consists of 4 separate bags each with a different micron count. Through the process of trimming the leaf (especially very frosty leaf) many of the trichomes become dislodged from the leaf fragments. In conjunction with generating air flow and suction, the fan blade also agitates and disperses these free trichomes (kief) and leaf fragments, separating the various sized particles into the filtration bags. As you trim, the innermost bag with the largest micron count captures the larger leaf fragments. The middle bag catches the smaller leaf particulate and the outer bag captures the majority of the loose kief dislodged from the trimmed leaf. After several hours of trimming, there is nothing but nearly pure, fine kief in the outer bag. You can then take these three grades of byproduct and further process them as you so desire.
Dry Sifting – There will still be a significant amount of trichomes on and amongst the trimmings in the innermost and middle filtration bags, one method for harvesting the rest of the trichomes is a process called dry sifting. Once your leaf has dried for a few days (be sure to spread it out nice and thin so that it does not mold), it can be manually sifted back through the system. This is also true of the product in the outer most bag. When the trichomes are wet they will not pass through the outer bag, but when dried they can be filtered through the outer bag to produce and even finer grade of kief.
