agile Pruning Implements

Double your hand pruning speed while reducing fatigue.

The Andros AGILE Pruner (or pre-pruner) implements provide table grape farmers with a significant opportunity to decrease pruning costs. The pruner is designed to work in vineyards with wye trellis structures. Because the Agile Pruner is more efficient than hand crews, many farmers see a less than one year return on their investment. The implements are offered in a single-head model, which prunes half a row per pass, and a dual-head model which prunes an entire row per pass. Additionally, the Agile pruner cuts the hardest canes to reach, making the final pruning easier for crews.
