tree-prunerTrees and horticulture plants are generally pruned for better growth by cutting the stem, branches, leaves, etc. The task is generally done manually by using knives etc, which is very risky, tiresome and time consuming process. The imported machines are very expensive and mounted on exclusive vehicle for it. No indigenous machine that is suitable and affordable is available for Indian farmers.

Innovator has developed a tractor operated tree pruner which is useful for pruning the trees and can do top dressing as well. The machine is mounted to tractor and gets drive from hydraulic system. It can be attached to any tractor of size 40hp and above. The blades are made of carbon steel. The tractor consumes 3.5-4.0 litre diesels per hour.
