Hammer Knives and Counter Knives

Hammer knives allow shredding of up to a 2” diameter brush. To achieve fine shredding, use the counter knives (one straight and two notched) to make sure residues are cut.

Offset Capability

VKD models feature a hydraulically controlled offset for quick adjustments without having to leave the tractor seat.


Roller or Semi-Pivoting Wheels

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.


Collecting Rake (Optional on VKD)

The rear collecting rake, available as an option, lifts up residues and vine shoots which are pressed down to the ground and need to be shredded. The roller guides keep it stable on uneven or damp ground. For greater machine stability, you can add skids or a roller.

Side Trimming Disc (Optional)

For clean row spacing, this hydraulically driven device moves around the trees for clean maintenance without damaging tree trunks or vine stocks. With its hydraulic work/transport positioning system, this tool is very easy to use.
