Features and Benefits

Nothing goes to waste with the Spit-Green Mulcher. 

Finely mulch grass, vine trimmings and weeds, and place the mulch directly onto the base of the rows with the help of the precision side-discharge function. 

Applying mulch directly to the sub-row created three distinct advantages: 

  1. The mulch act as a natural fertiliser, improving the nutrient content of the soil, 
  2. The mulch protects the soil and maintains moisture – especially beneficial for the younger plants, and 
  3. The mulch reduces the proliferation of weeds, making for healthier vines and less reliance on chemical weedkillers. 

High-quality, Italian manufacturing ensures these machines will be relied on for generations. Their carefully crafted hammer-flail action means they can break down pretty much anything put in front of them. 

Features include the steel-belted roller bearings as standard, replaceable double-skin protection cover, cast steel hammer flails, hydraulic controls for directing output and a solid 200mm roller. 

Multiple widths available – perfect to suit all NZ orchards and vineyards.

Looking for a traditional, rear discharge Mulcher for your vineyard? Consider the Falc Grifus, designed to deliver the benefits of our rear-discharge Mulchers whilst fitting perfectly down NZ vineyard and orchard rows.
