To celebrate #EnglishWineWeek we've put together a list of our top 5 machines for UK vineyards:
Antonio Carraro Tractors
The Antonio Carraro Tractors range from 26-98hp. Offering a minimum width of 985mm, AC tractors are designed specifically to work in vineyards with a minimal steering radius & the lowest possible compaction. The even weight distribution reduces soil compaction within rows & avoids root damage. Popular with many UK Vineyards, the equal wheel distribution ensures the operator has increased stability, comfort & traction; especially on rough terrain and steep slopes.
Orizzonti Mechanical Weeding
We are the UK importers for Italian Manufacturer, Orizzonti who supply single & double row cultivators. With over 20 tool heads to choose from, you can tailor the machine to your needs, your soil type and ultimately your desired finished result under-vine. The frames are easy to maintain which helps to keep the cost down of running these machines as well as reducing the need for using herbicides.
This mounted, ultra-low volume sprayer is ideal for large-scale row cultivation spraying herbicides along the rows. Comes with huge sustainable benefits:
• Uses pure rather than diluted chemicals (resulting in 50-80% reduction of herbicides)
• Creates far less compaction thanks to its small 6ltr tank
• Reduced drift due to accurate spraying & not being a pressurised system.
• Low energy consumption; powered by tractor 12V supply
• Available in different spray widths
The Olmi vineyard de-leafer ensures optimal grape development and can save up to 30% of time compared to manual harvesting. The air that’s produced hits the leaves around the grapes ensuring a gentle but effective leaf removing system for vines.
Perfectly designed for the vineyard market, reduce wastage with the impressive Friuli 2-Row Sprayer. These unique 2-row sprayers recirculate unused product creating a more sustainable, and efficient sprayer. Around 80% of spray is recirculated at the beginning of the season and around 20-25% saved on the last treatments. The seasonal average saving has been calculated around 50%.
