narrow vines 1 to 2 rows
In 1 row (E3000F) or 2 rows (E3200F) version, our COLLARD Leaf Removers on all types of straddle tractors or harvesting machines. Versatile, our Leaf Removers are mounted instead of your trimmer, so on the same lifting frame.
The booster is positioned on the rear plate of the straddle tractor, or under the tractor cab to avoid having to disassemble your spray equipment. The booster is driven in rotation from the hydraulic of the tractor or, on PTO 540 RPM.
The COLLARD Leaf Remover is designed to be robust and easy to use, the air flow technology gives the driver a certain control.
Only the air flow machine can work at the heart of the row during the fruit setting.
There is a version of our machines with reversible heads.
We adapt the configuration of your machine to the characteristics of your vineyard (height and width, spacing between the rows, height of the post, type of tractor, etc ...).
- 3 way valve to select the face to work.
- A front lift frame, elevator type.
- Frames for straddle tractors or harvesting machines with variable track.
- Hydraulic width adjustment.
- Specific frame of the booster under the tractor cab.
- Version with reversible heads.
- Thermal engine independent of the tractor to drive the booster.

Our main advantages
From the falling of the flower heads to the harvest
The COLLARD Leaf Remover is designed to operate in green season or before harvest, our machines are perfectly versatile. Although today 80% of our Leaf Removers are sold worldwide for working in green season, historically, our machines have been developed for working before harvest, so just in front of the pickers.
Our COLLARD Leaf Removers are the result of a very long experience. It was in 1979 that COLLARD company marketed its first pneumatic Leaf Removers. Today all the vineyards of the world know and use our machines, with this experience they have become the reference of the market. Only in Champagne area we count more than 800 machines in service.
Orientation of the heads
The defoliating head is easily orientable to adjust the desired height of work.
Selection of the face to work
Traditionally we work in green season on the opposite side of the sun, to do this our COLLARD Leaf Removers are equipped with a 3 way valve allowing to choice the face of the row to defoliate.
We adjust the intensity of work by intervening on several simple parameters:
• Regulation of the air pressure (control valve with manometer).
• Regulation of rotational speed of rotors.
• Selection of the appropriate diameter of the air nozzle.
• Orientation of the head.
A safety valve limits the risk of air overpressure in the machine circuit.
Our heads are mounted on an anti-shock system to absorb any shocks to work.
Our boosters are specially designed for COLLARD application (double oil bath, reinforced joints, service pressure, etc ...). For the hydraulic drive of the booster, we provide a variable displacement hydraulic piston engine. Only variable displacement makes it possible to adjust the performance of the hydraulic motor to the straddle tractor's capacities.
The heads are designed to be easily cleaned, the maintenance of our machines is reduced to a minimum.
Our Leaf Removers are guaranteed 2 years, this commitment is the fruit of a long experience through the most demanding vineyards of the world.
Carved to remove leaves
The design of our heads is carved to facilitate the penetration of our machines in the vegetation.
Minimal clutter, rounded shapes and maximum compactness make our COLLARD Leaf Removers the market leader
Exceptional hydraulic protection
Oil filtration, flow control, anti-return valve, pressure limiter, protect the hydraulic components of the Leaf Remover (motors, distributors, etc ...), these settings are sealed in the factory
