Agritechnica 2015: Pruning Trees from the Tractor Seat, Courtesy of Fliegl


It may have been the scariest machine at Agritechnica, but Fliegl’s three-blade pruning machine offers a level of comfort far above that of our pruning sheers. That’s because the implement attaches to the loader arm of a tractor, eliminating the need to dodge falling branches, spiders and wasp nests.

“It can cut timber up to 25cm diameter,” Fliegl’s Christoph Hierl told Shaun Haney, in Hanover, Germany. Plus, he said, you can do it all while driving.

The implement handles working speeds up to 8km/h, and, optionally tilts up to 111 degrees.
