When fresh wet flowers are fully dried, they shrink to about 25%-30% in size of what they once were. They become brittle, fragile and more susceptible to damage.
For this reason, a Dry tumbler is needed when harvesting dry flowers because the cutting surface area is greatly reduced on the dry tumbler. The 1/4” wide steel slats means more metal material is present and there is less open area, thereby protecting the smaller fragile flowers from being overexposed to the blades of the machine. This will result in less trichome loss and a higher yield as more of your flowers will stay intact during the harvesting process.
You will not get this level of protection when using a “dual-purpose standard tumbler” to trim both wet and dry flowers.
