CIRCULAR-MOVEMENT CUTTER SYSTEM
Vine trimmers are composed of individual knife blades fixed on a special
multi-ply vee-guide belt which rotates against fixed blade sections. This
system assures a quality cut of all canes with the ability of fast ground
travel without imparting viberstion to the berries. This cutting action
allows pre-harvest trimming without the fear of shaking your crop on the
ground; like current standard recipericating trimmer do.
the cutting knives are cleaned and sharpened automatically when they
come in contact with the stationary blades.
special rotary-lifter attached to the cutter bar gathers up low-lying
belt tension is a must; and very easily accomplished with a simple tensionner
screw adjustment. The proper tension will track the belt correctly,
not allowing the blades expand outwardly, hitting the frame or insides
of the guard covers
the event of hitting a non-movable object the cutter bars rotate out
of the way with a break-away spring; or allow the drive belt to slip
and not damage the motor or cutter blades.
oil requirements are just 6/ GPM or usually what most tractors have
available at the least
Cutter Bars and Bar Frames are easilly mounted on all tractors and are
quickly removable, allowing your tractor to be used for something else
during the remainder of the year. Although most growers leave the cutters
on all year.
Cutter Bar Frame moves the cutter bars up/ down and in/ out for vineyard
adjustment from the tractor seat; Standard tractor. (or with optional
remote electrical valve assembly- Cab Tractors)
