Mulchers for orchards and vineyards

Mulchers for orchards and vineyards

Mulchers for orchards and vineyards are a type of agricultural mulcher and are primarily designed for shredding of plant residue after pruning and for weed and grass in orchards and vineyards. Beside their basic purpose, mulchers can also be used for shredding of crop residue, for maintenance of all other agricultural, public, neglected or uncultivated areas. Due to electronically balanced rotor of high speed, blades precisely and efficiently shred plant residue transforming it to light humus fertiliser, improving the quality and fertility of the soil and decreasing the use of inorganic fertilisers. This directly reduces agricultural production costs and increases yields.

- Shredding prunes up to 50 mm in diameter
- Low fuel consumption and low powered tractor requirements due to double spiral rotor and optimal positioning of rotor blades
- Lateral movement
- Low cost and easy maintenance

Key features:

 Height adjustment using side slider and/or roller.

 Gearbox with overrunning clutch:
     a) Rear-mounting (standard);
   b) Only front or combination of front and rear mounting (optional).

 Side movement:
     a) Mechanically;
   b) Hydraulically.

 Blade options:
     a) Hammer blade (standard): for difficult operating conditions (branches, thicker weeds, grass, etc.);
   b) Universal Y blade (optional): for easy operating conditions (grass, weeds, etc.).

 Lateral transmission through toothed V-belts.

 Counter blades (standard): position of the blades determines the level of shredding of crop residue (three positions).
