Hi there. Susan here with Green Mountain Harvest, Colorado’s oldest
harvest and trim company since 2010. Would love to connect and
see what the latest in your harvesting and trimming ideas would be.
Thanks

Hey Susan!

Does Green Mountain Harvest employ any trim machines in your repertoire of tools? The GreenBroz Dry Trimmers are widely considered the most delicate in the industry and would be a great addition to your crew. Check out some of our client feedback! We would love to work with you all if possible (http://bit.ly/2xlTEjI).

Susan told me that they don’t use machines mainly because of the increased insurance premiums for having employees work with any sort of machinery. I’m sure leaf trimming machines are on the safer side of automated equipment, but for whatever reason workman’s comp just lumps them in with more hazardous machinery for insurance purposes.

That sounds about right. I doubt the insurance companies would actually do the due diligence to research each individual machine, even though we have all of our safety procedures right on point and our machine contains only a small motor and very few moving parts. (Fully OSHA compliant).

The only reason I asked is that our machines are used in a number of trim crews across the US, but I didn’t see anything like that listed on their site. I’m sure they kill it with their current system and wish nothing but the best, of course!

Oh well, in time I’m sure mainstream America will catch up to all the awesome things this industry is doing.

It could be that the other trimming crews are using contractors via 1099 vs direct employees, so that takes the insurance burden off the company.

Very interesting. That would make sense.

Thanks for reaching out. We do not run any machines because Workman’s Comp
will put us in a much
higher ag category. We have schucked buds for the GreenBroz and its a great
machine. I have recommended
it to several of our jobs. Thanks
