We’ve got a Pellenc 890, this is our third season running that harvester. We’ve been using machine harvesting and machine harvested fruit for probably 25-30 years now and when they came out with the onboard sorting system, the Selectiv’ Process…that’s what really pushed us towards Pellenc. The fruit that’s coming out of that machine is very very clean there’s hardly any leaves, very few stems, and it can go right in a tank without any further processing once it gets to the winery. For us at Silver Oak that’s really important. One of the factors that caused us to buy a machine to go to machine harvesting is the ability to be able to pick when we want to pick. For us, a day or two later than we want to really makes a huge difference in fruit quality. So being able to pick the amount we want, the time we want and keep on that schedule is really important. We’ve been very satisfied with the quality of the equipment. It’s in three seasons that we’ve been running it, we’ve had just a few minor issues that got straightened out quickly. Can’t say enough about the service department, they do a great job. They’re available 24/7 and we’ve used them a couple of times at all hours of the night. We chose this machine because we think it’s the best in the industry right now.

MULTIFUNCTION

OPTIMUM combined multitasking

The only carrier on the market capable of working two full rows with two different tools simultaneously

The growing concerns of vine growers about the profitability of their farms, particularly in light of restrictions on herbicides, climate change, new requirements regarding pesticides, and expanding acreage are what led us to develop COMBINED MULTITASKING.
The PELLENC multifunction carrier is equipped with mechanical, electrical, and hydraulic coupling systems for the quick fitting of one tool at the front of the multifunction arm and another at the rear, so that two full rows can be worked at once.
Today, more than 80% of our carriers work in multifunction mode.

Features

There is no equivalent on the market. This is the only carrier capable of working 2 full rows with 2 different tools. That ability to use a combination of tools simultaneously required our engineers to develop the carrier’s hydraulic, electrical, and electronic capabilities.
The machine’s intelligence lies in its control console and touchscreen panel, which enable the operator to control two tools simultaneously using a wide range of automated systems. The interface is designed to make the operator’s job easier and safe.

Some examples:

Multifunction Front Arm and Rear Tool Carrier:

  • Multifunction front arm: 1 full row trimmer
    + 2 x 1/2 row trimmers (= 2 full rows)
  • Twin Row 3-point: Tool holder equipped with 2 cultivators
    (with or without inter-vine probes).

2-Row Trimmer:

  • Automatic width adjustment of the cutter bars from the cab (information on the plantation width and the canopy).
  • Automatic folding and unfolding of the exterior cutter bars.
  • Automated height adjustment and extension of the multifunction arm.
  • Automatic width adjustment of the cutter bars from the cab (information on the plantation width and the canopy).
  • These automated systems are linked to the start-up of the cutter bars and are carried out in hidden time while the driver turns around at the headland.

TWIN Row 3-Point Attachment:

  • AUTOMATIC centering system between the vines thanks to the 2 probes located in front of the tools (width adjustment to adapt to different plantation widths).
  • In-row 3-Points are re-centered behind the carrier automatically to move on to the next row with perfectly aligned tools.
  • The height of each tool is also managed thanks to the ground probes. This means the whole assembly can work at a tilt.
  • The hydraulics of the tool holder deliver power to the cylinder. The cylinder raises the rear tool when the arm is raised: this significantly reduces the need for maneuvering room at the headland.

Easy controls

  • Two-click control. The start-up of the front tool is managed by the first click and the start-up of the rear tool by the second click. This lets the operator take account of the carrier’s progress in the row.
  • Each time the tools are switched on or off, the automated systems on each tool save time at the headlands and free the operator from all the constraints associated with each tool.

The advantages of combined multifunction

  • Automated systems that make the operator’s job easier
  • Coupling and uncoupling at an accessible height + hydraulic coupling (less time consuming)
  • Faster amortization of machines
  • Fuel saving
  • Labor saving
  • Time saving in the field
  • Jobs carried out when the moment is right
  • Farm productivity is two to four times higher than with an in-the-row tractor
