In the mid 1990s, we were looking for solutions to optimise the amortisation of our harvesting machines, and in 1996 we bought our first PELLENC multifunction carrier. We were so satisfactied 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 amortised.
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.
