The Olmi pneumatic leaf remover for vineyards is equipped with an air blower that sends a high flow of pressurized air through rotating nozzles, onto the area where leaves have to be removed. The air jet action thus disintegrates the leaves, while preserving the grapes.
Several configurations are available:
- Single-head leaf remover: it operates on one half-row at a time
- Some models have a 180-degree pivoting head to work on both sides of the tractor
- Double-head leaf remover: it operates on one row at a time, or two half-rows at a time
- Quadruple-head leaf remover: it operates on two rows at a time
