Mechanical pruners are here to stay in vineyard equipment
Not only can mechanical pruning save time and money, it has been shown to increase yields and help control pests and disease in the vineyard. This high speed harvester-mounted box pruner will prune circles around other pruners. While others creep along at 1 to 2 mph, the 1050 series clips along at 5 to 6 mph meaning your labor time is cut dramatically. Its accuracy means no loss of quality in pruning.
All machines utilize off-the-shelf components. No need to wait for the Europeans to come back from vacation to order parts or service.
