large vines 1 ½ row
Our 1 ½ row Leaf Removers are adaptable at the front (E 1100 FR) or at the rear (E 1100 3P) of the tractor. The head is reversible by hydraulic cylinder to pass from LH to RH of the frame in order to work the most protected face of the sun (for a work in green season). The booster is fitted on a 3 points linkage frame at the rear and then, driven by the PTO 540 RPM of the tractor.
The 1½ row version is particularly appreciated for its lightness and ease of use. It is easy to maneuver in particularly narrow vineyards.
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 ...).
According to the configuration, these machines are equipped with several hydraulic settings controlled thanks a joystick:
• Tilt correction
- Prefiltration kit.
- Ventilation kit.
- Other specificities on request.
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 ...).
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
