Characteristics of the Paterlini chain pruner
The Paterlini chain pruner is part of the category of oil and wine tools. It serves to deprive plants of dry or superfluous branches to the goal of the plant, that is, to yield. This tool is innovative, recently on the market; in fact the first tools of this type were the pruning chainsaws with internal combustion engine. The pruners backed up with telescopic poles arrived later. With the advent of pneumatic pruners, operator comfort has certainly increased. In fact, there are no longer those annoying fumes that in the long run are harmful to the body. This tool works by means of a rotating pneumatic motor similar to that used on percussive tools such as demolition hammers. To operate, it must be connected to a compressor.
Use and prices
The use of this tool involves dependence on a compressor, which is normally the one that is connected to the power take-off of a tractor and is the same that is used to connect olive harvesting poles. A tube suitable for the passage of compressed air starts from the compressor, so it must be suitable; while on the pruner we will find a coupling typical of pneumatic tools, ie pressure. You will notice the ergonomic handle with operating lever, which when activated opens the valve for the passage of air and the consequent start. Front there is the cutting body: it is formed by the rotating pneumatic motor with "AIR PLUS" technology; the oil tank for lubrication. The price is around two hundred and seventy euros.
