The StemPro 160 Cutter operates on electricity and can be plugged into any standard 120VAC 15-amp outlet (US and Canada).
The standard power cord is 8’ in length. Models with appropriate operating voltages and plugs are available for other countries. Go to our contact page to request specifications.
The Stem Pro 160 workstation dimensions are 36” long x 18” wide x 33” high or 91cm long x 46cm wide x 84 cm high. The weight of the total system is 190 pounds. The shipping weight is 225 pounds.
Each StemPro 160 cutter comes complete with a length-of-cut limiter which can be used to limit the fresh cut on flower stems to 3/4” and avoid wasteful over cutting of stems needlessly reducing stem length. The length-of-cut limiter can be removed by taking out two (2) screws with a 3/8” wrench. This allows cutting bouquets which may have uneven stem lengths.
The exact efficiency of the StemPro Cutter is dependent upon the operator. It has a 3” funnel designed for a 25 stem bunch of roses. It will work as fast as the operator can put the flowers into the funnel.
Examples: 15 stem carnation in a full dry box = 44 bunches. To cut 3 boxes or 132 bunches it should take about 12 minutes. 25 stem of roses in a full dry box = 14 bunches. To cut 9 boxes or 125 bunches it should take about 18 minutes. In all of the examples above, the buckets with flower-food solution are already prepared and available to receive the cut flowers.
The StemPro 160 incorporates a blade sanitizing system, ensuring that the blade never cross-contaminates bouquets. A dispenser is supplied for recharging the blade wiper with an approved sanitizer (Floralife® DCD is the only approved Floral EPA approved sanitizer), which should be done daily and takes just a few seconds.
