Once you try KLIMA Generation 2 you will never want to prune the old fashioned way again. KLIMA helps grape growers do more with less and can save grape growers millions of dollars in vineyard labour costs year after year.
Fruiting wire staples are replaced with KLIMA clips to make the trellis wires detachable, so they can be fed through the KLIMA machine. This approach is key to the KLIMA system's ability to combine efficient processing with a quality result.
A small number of skilled pruning staff undertake the initial pass making the all important cane selection and head
positioning choices only.
In a single pass the KLIMA cane-pruner cuts, strips and mulches. As the machine passes, it lifts the wires clear of the canes. Cutting blades remove the surplus canes onto the row.
Fruiting wires are then reattached to the intermediate posts and canes are ready to trim and wrap.
