Cherrylake Nursery, an ornamental tree farm in Florida, has 30-40 workers who do pruning. Here, they explain the benefits they’ve seen: 30% productivity increase, less repetitive motion stress on employees, and cleaner cuts.
John Nasgovitz, a cherry grower in Montana purchased the F3010 when he realized that pain related to pruning was impacting his work quality. Recently he needed to add a second shear into the mix and his wife encouraged him to get the latest model – the F3015. John describes the amazing difference he’s experienced.

Pruning with manual shears and loppers really took a toll on Phyllis Morris’s hands, wrists, and arms. In 2007 (after double-carpal tunnel surgery) she made the switch to Infaco’s incredibly light and powerful Electrocoup shear. Since then Phyllis has seen her own efficiency double and has seen so many other benefits too. We’re so proud to be able to help people like Phyllis keep doing what they love to do!
To see Phyllis in action, check out how she does her suckering and summer pruning in this follow-up video.
Listen to the owner of DeRose Vineyard explain how they use Infaco’s Electrocoup F3010 and the EPAv2 desuckering tools to increase productivity and worker comfort and safety.
Infaco USA is thrilled to share this story from Sebastopol olive grower Brooke Hazen of Olive Leaf Hill Mills/Goldridge Organic Farms. This is a long video but we just could’t bring ourselves to cut any more of it! Brooke uses Infaco’s Electro’liv battery-operated olive harvester – here are the highlights:
- Went from harvesting 2 tons/day to 6 tons/day
- Used to have 30 hand-harvesters and now has a crew of just 19
- Quality remained the same and kept winning awards
- Transition to mechanical harvesting was easy and workers loved it
Brooke also shares valuable info about how he organized his harvest crews.
Why does Larry Smyth of Carriage Vineyards like his F3010 Electrocoup pruning shear? Maybe it’s the 20% increase in productivity and less wasted time re-training crews….!
Richard Sauret explains how the Electrocoup F3010 with DSES safety system saves him time and helps make more cuts possible while pruning his 13,000 vines alone.
