UZ – Front Mounting Vineyard Defoliators/Leaf Pluckers


KMS Rinklin Vineyard Defoliators/Leaf Pluckers provide a well ventilated fruit zone and not only thin out the fruit zone carefully and gently, but also expels the cut foliage cleanly. This not only reduces fungal infections in the fruit zone, but also in the bunches themselves.

The vine leaves whether large or small, dry or wet are plucked off by a suction fan between a rubber cylinder and a hollow cylinder. The removed leaves are ejected forward into the row and away from the canopy.

Unique to the KMS plucker is the optional DUO Turbine available on the full range of models. This provides a second fan mounted behind the plucker head that blows a jet of air into the canopy to remove inflorescence residues from grapes.

The KMS “UZ” front mounted unit is a single over row plucker that is mounted to the front of the tractor. Available with two mounting options – Fixed or Hydraulic lateral adjustment including parallel linkage
