Purpose-Built Prune Line
The prune line is a specialist range of equipment for pruning different types of plants. The prune line consists of four different modules.
These include a Trimming Machine which prunes the plant at the top with a 450mm knife. This trimming machine can work with a vacuum unit to collect the waste material.
The butterfly knives (below) prune the plant from different angles. The module consist of 3 or 4 butterfly knives, and it is possible to set the knives individually in different positions.
The Straight Blade, as suggested, trims the sides of the plants with straight knives. This module consists of 1 - 4 straight knives, whose blades are 750mm long.
The Globe knife is for pruning the plant in the shape of a globe. This module consists of a single globe knife. Each module can be used individually or as a combination with another.
