Vine Cutter Bars (Topping Machine)


Hesco have been manufacturing cutter bars for over twenty years. In that time we have progressed to our later models which can cut green canes and also prune your vines.

The blades are a one piece design, and are cut out of sheets of Bisalloy (spring steel) by laser.

The machines come standard with 2 x 2.6 metre hydraulic hoses. There are two lengths available, 48 inch and 54 inch, longer machines can be made which can be used to trim or skirt citrus or stone fruit trees.

Please Note: The minimum oil flow required by the vine cutter bar is 7 gallons or 32 litres per min.

Models Available:

2 Models are available, these are medium duty and heavy duty. They are designed for topping light pruning and heavy pruning. Both types of cutter bars can be fitted with a cane lifter as an option. These have flow dividers fitted so you can regulate the fingers cutting speed.
