French manufacturer Provitis specialise in the design and production of viticulture machinery that will all fit on one of their four multi-purpose carrying frames and work from the same control box.
The Optima range is especially designed for vineyard tractors and includes a vine tying machine, vine trimmer, pre pruner, leaf remover, trunk cleaner and linkage mounted oil box unit. This range allows the customer to choose a frame to carry a number of the machines available depending on those they wish to use.
The Ocea range allows a customer to purchase an individual machine and its' accompanying carrying frame. This range includes the vine trimmer ST 120, leaf remover LR 350, pre pruner MP 122, and pruning machine MPH 44.
At Vitifruit Equipment we are most excited by the prospects offered by the tying machine in the Optima range (pictured at the bottom of this page).
