Stem Length –
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.
Efficiency Examples —
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.
Blade Sanitizer –
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.
