Providing a new path to the future of agriculture


The original! The Darwin is front mounted to the tractor using a 3 point hitch, fork-mount, or bolt-on hitch and has range of motion from 45 -135 degrees. It was designed for use in a fruiting wall apple planting, but has also proven extremely effective in V style peaches and stone fruit.

The machine is attached to the front hydraulic system of the tractor or to the coupling mouth by means of an expander, if the tractor does not possess a front hydraulic system. The hydraulic adjustment of the spindle inclination allows the adaptation to the tree form or to the ground.

The spindle together with the tractor drives closely along the tree rows and thereby cuts buds, flower clusters, or individual blooms depending upon the point of assignment.
