The Mother Bucker and Double Bucker were developed after 80 years manufacturing harvesting equipment for the hops industry. Professionally engineered with the highest quality parts, our harvesting equipment provides years of reliable service with minimal maintenance.

MUNCH Machine is introducing industrial-grade farm equipment to the cannabis industry. With generations as the global leader in hops harvesting, we know better than anyone that down-time during harvest is not an option. Our machines are tough, reliable, built to last, and designed to process at the scale of the emerging cannabis industry.

Operation of our bucking machines is simple yet effective. Insert a stem in the appropriately sized die hole and the machine pulls it through, gently removing flowers from perfectly stripped stems. Variable speed control allows for versatility - slow the machine down for damage-free bucking of carefully dried plants, or speed it up for rapid bucking of freshly harvested stems.

Our roots run deep.

MUNCH Machine makes innovative Cannabis harvesting solutions. MUNCH grew out of Dauenhauer Mfg, creators of the world’s first mechanical hops harvesters in 1940. Prior to this, hops were hand-picked and hand-processed on small farms, similar to cannabis harvesting up to now.

Dauenhauer Harvesters changed the hops industry forever. Within a few years of the first prototype, the majority of US hops growers switched to mechanical harvesting. The adoption of this new technology dramatically increased efficiency, lowered processing costs, and gave farmers a competitive advantage over the laggards. Dauenhauer remains the world standard in commercial hops harvesting to this day.

At MUNCH Machine, we see the same scenario unfolding today as the cannabis industry emerges from prohibition, and we are ready to meet the challenge. We have the experience and the knowledge to create innovative solutions for your cannabis harvesting needs. Our goal is to make affordable harvesting solutions for Cannabis growers of all sizes.
