ERO have led the market for many years with their Roller defoliator and, following a recent acquisition, can now offer a proven ‘airblast’ defoliator system with the benefits that ERO customers already enjoy - innovative and high-quality German design and manufacturing with reliable parts and service support. With the VITIpulse ERO offers a ‘best of both worlds’ solution that allows our customers to utilise a combination of Airblast and Roller Defoliation technology during the season to achieve optimum canopy management results. The VITIpulse is used at early stages to remove debris and ‘clean’ the canopy and remove inner leaf material from bunch zone. As berries develop and become susceptible to damage from high speed particles and debris propelled by the airblast system, switching to the roller system, which uses a suction fan and counter rotating rollers, provides gentle but effective leaf removal whilst minimising fruit damage. The VITIpulse offers a range of mounting configurations, with both 2 and 4-head systems for tractor or harvester mounted options available.

Your benefits

  • German design and quality manufacturing
  • Easily adjusted rotor speed and air pressure allow simple customisation to achieve desired results in different canopies
  • Stainless steel heads for easy maintenance and low wear
  • Unique valve-nozzle system generates pulsed air bursts for optimal results
  • Multiple hydraulic adjustments to ensure ease of operation and optimal positioning;
