Perfect Variochop

With the Perfect Variochop, mulching or shredding prunings can be quick, effective and is a great way to add humus to the soil.

The Variochop shredder from Perfect van Wamel can be front- or rear-mounted and gives growers the additional option to adjust the PTO speed.

By changing the position of the V-belt pulleys, operators can select between 540, 750 or 1000 rpm depending on the positioning of the pulveriser and capabilities of the tractor. In particular, the 750 rpm option will allow operators with larger tractors to drive the machine with a reduced engine speed to limit fuel consumption and improve efficiency.

With working widths of 135, 150, 180 and 210 cm, the Perfect Variochop is suited to work in orchards and vineyards. The heavy construction, and 2.2kg flails also allow for shredding of prunings up to 8cm in diameter.

Growers who want to make year-round use of the machine can even choose to fit Perfect’s Combi flails, which not only provides very good shredding of wood but also gives a very nice and even cut in grass.

The Perfect Variochop range is a follow-up to the existing BGM and BKM series.
