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….!

Vineyard Tying with the A3M

Infaco's A3M electronic tying machine

Infaco’s vineyard tying machine – the A3M – makes vine tying easy. For single or double “Guyot” (cane) training, this machine is highly versatile. A soft steel wire is used for greater flexibility.  It’s strong enough to hold until harvesting and it self-destructs easily after a year, at pruning time.

Here, one of our clients is using our electric tying machine to attach vines to their overhead trellis system.

Maple Vineyards Testimonial

We have been personally pruning 25 acres of head-trained, spur-pruned zinfandel vines with battery-power shears since 1993.  We currently have 4 sets of Electrocoup shears from INFACO-usa.com that are indispensable to our continued operation.  We have used or tried both the Felcotronic and Pellenc brands in past years and find the Electrocoup far superior in performance and ease of handling.  Of particular importance to us is the recent opening of an INFACO sales and service facility in Northern CA, and of the availability of numerous other implements that work off the same battery packs (we are buying a reciprocating saw and a hedger).  Very highly recommended!
