Features

A Go Anywhere Design
A low-profile hood eliminates branch catching or hooking on trellis wires. The reduced hood height allows the VK shredder to slide under even the lowest wires without damaging the vines.

Versatile, Profiled, High-Speed Hammer Knives
Dual-purpose, forged-steel hammer knives, each weighing 2.6 pounds, will shred vineyard and orchard prunings finely and cut grass impeccably.

Perfectly Controlled Height
Height is controlled via a roller or semi-pivoting wheels. The roller is fitted with removable ends as standard, so that you can carry out any necessary maintenance or repair quickly and easily at reduced costs.
The big wheels’ advantage: By adjustment, wheels permit that the machine doesn’t have to be lifted at the end of the row.

Collecting Rake (Optional)
Available as an option, the rear collecting rake lifts up residues to be shredded and vine shoots that are pressed down to the ground. The roller guides the machine accurately and keeps it stable on uneven or damp ground. For greater machine stability, optional skids are available.
