Pellenc Visio tractor-mounted pre-pruner

In the world of vineyard maintenance, the Pellenc Visio tractor-mounted pre-pruner stands out as the ultimate solution for streamlining the process of spur pruning in permanent cordon vineyards. This cutting-edge machine combines advanced technology with mechanical precision to effectively remove unwanted canes, making vineyard management more efficient than ever before.

When it comes to VSP (Vertical Shoot Positioning) cane replacement pruning, the Pellenc Visio pre-pruner truly shines. By adjusting the machine's settings, it can effortlessly operate at a higher level within the vine, eliminating the top section of the canopy from the trellis wires. As a result, the time and effort required for hand pruners to manually remove canes and lay down next year's selected fruiting wood are dramatically reduced.

One of the standout features of the Pellenc Visio pre-pruner is its heavy-duty mulching discs, specially designed to cut the lignified canes into shorter lengths. These discarded canes are then dropped to the ground, where they naturally biodegrade over time, promoting a sustainable vineyard environment. Moreover, the mulching discs operate at a low rotational speed, ensuring a safe operation by minimising debris ejection.

Equipped with an innovative Visio ultrasonic eye, this cutting-edge machine boasts remarkable detection capabilities. It can automatically detect and navigate around posts, guaranteeing an uninterrupted pruning process. The Visio ultrasonic eye also excels at accurately tracking the cordon, ensuring precise and consistent pruning for optimal vine health.

The Pellenc Visio pre-pruner is a game-changer for vineyard owners and workers seeking to enhance their pruning efficiency. By leveraging its mechanical prowess and advanced features, vineyards can significantly reduce labour costs and minimise manual labour requirements. Embracing this state-of-the-art technology allows vineyard professionals to optimise their time and resources, ultimately increasing productivity and ensuring the long-term success of their vineyards.

In conclusion, the Pellenc Visio tractor-mounted pre-pruner revolutionises the art of vineyard pruning. Its mechanical precision, innovative technology, and safety features make it a must-have for any vineyard seeking to enhance its pruning practices.
