In the mid 1990s, we were looking for solutions to optimize the amortization of our harvesting machines, and in 1996 we bought our first PELLENC multifunction carrier. We were so satisfied that we now own 35 PELLENC carriers, each of which do pre-pruning, spreading, leaf stripping, spraying and harvesting work. Our carriers accomplish 800 h of work per year on average, our investments were quickly amortized. This type of optimal operating rate is achieved by the simple and quick change of tools, which allows us to respond very quickly when it comes to the needs of our customers. Our drivers operate PELLENC carriers all year long in the field. They have perfectly mastered its operation and settings, which means the work gets done fast and the quality is very good! Using a carrier to perform all types of vineyard work also allows us to ensure the sustainability of our customers’ blocks. The large wheels of our carriers drive in the middle of the row, limiting root compaction at the foot of the plant.
Perform all types of work in the vineyard
Carry out soil maintenance with the Twin Row 3-Point Tool
Work on two rows at the same time. Practical: automatically adapts to the planting width. Economic: works the soil faster than with a tractor.
Perform soil work in two rows at the same time with one tractor.
Pre-prune with Disco
Average work speed: 5 km/h (3.1 mph), even in dense vegetation. Extra-strong boron steel disks (no sharpening needed). Automatic opening around posts thanks to the artificial vision system (optional). Cuts vine shoots cleanly.
Harvest with the Optimum harvesting head
Complete range: a harvesting head that is perfect for your vineyard. High working speed. Quality harvesting and optimized sorting with Selectiv’ Process 2 technology.
Pre-prune with Visio
Power and speed, both day and night. Working speed of up to 8 km/h (5 mph). Pradines Blades: offering the same quality as with the pruning shears. Automatic opening around posts thanks to the artificial vision system (optional). Cordon tracking (optional).
Pruning with the Precision Pruner
Reduce pruning costs and time without fatigue. Working speed: up to 3 km/h (1.9 mph), both day or night. Up to 90 % less time spent pruning. Automatic cordon tracker by Visio. Unmatched operator comfort. Superior cutting quality.
Spray with EOLE 2
Spraying is completed in no time. Spray 3 to 6 rows all at once, for both narrow and wide vines. Maximize the effectiveness of your spray treatments with the help of on-carrier pneumatic or air jet diffusers. 2,000 L tank volume. Flow-rate directly proportional to ground-speed (Débit Proportionnel à l’Avancement (DPA)). Work laterally or from above.
Spray with EOLE VXL
The newest version of the EOLE sprayer line is available now! High-volume and capacity sprayer with options to use the standard Pellenc downspouts or a Cropland fan-style dispersion system. The EOLE VXL sprayer for Optimum tractors come standard with simple automatic flow controller. Enter how many gallons/acre you want sprayed, the EOLE VXL manages the rest!
Trellis with PELLENC
Lift, trim and trellis all at once. Working speed: 4 to 5 km/h (2.5 to 3 mph). An essential tool for vines with dense canopies. A canopy that is homogeneous and comparable to that of manual work. A wide range of environmentally friendly ties available.
Results are easy to adjust and are identical to manual stripping. Available in full row (Optimum/Multiviti) and reversible half-row (in-row tractor). Low fuel consumption, with reduced power requirements.
Quick working speed. Automatically follows the trellising with sensors protecting the berries and foliage. Rotates for easy cleaning.
Spreading with TWIN BOX
Fast and accurate work.
Multi-purpose: Spread manure, compost, fertilizers, soil and pulverulent products. Box volume of 3.4 m3 (120 cu/ft): Less time on the road, and more time in the vineyard.
