STRAIGHT BAR TOPPER-HEDGERS

One of the most versatile machines in the industry, our Straight Bar Topper-Hedgers are designed for selective cuts from tree to tree. These machines offer a cost-effective way to hedge, tip or roof top your walnuts and pecans. The narrow cab, flotation tires and heavy-duty, yet lightweight design allows us to perform effectively in many orchard situations.

HYBRID ANGLE BAR TOPPER-HEDGER

Fulfilling a need in the industry, this unique design combines our Straight Bar and Rotary-style equipment in one. It is capable of roof topping and hedging at the same time for a very cost-effective pruning treatment. It is best-suited for tipping or maintenance cutting in younger walnuts and pecans.

ROTARY TOPPER-HEDGER-SKIRTERS

These agile, tractor-mount machines offer an efficient pruning solution for fruit and nut growers. The sweeping, clearing action of the rotary head is effective at cutting through thick or brushy wood in almonds, pistachios, prunes, oleanders, persimmons, citrus, stone fruits and more.

We have several variants of this style of machine, each with some unique advantages in cutting positions, reach, etc. to meet your orchard’s needs.

One treatment that has been very popular is our one-pass, 12”, slot-hedging cut which can be an effective tool for separating almond varieties or providing a very narrow cross-hedging cut across tree row borders.

Contact us for information on additional cutting styles such as our V-topping and Z-topping.

DOUBLE BAR ROTARY TOPPER-HEDGERS

These machines are capable of hedging or cross-hedging with the narrowest cut in the industry – a mere 24”.

Many equiped with a third axle, which allows these hedgers to offer better suspension and efficiency in cross-hedging or other rough field conditions.

The unique joints allow the separate articulating heads to adjust invidually, giving you options beyond typical hedging style cuts.
