NetWizz Standard Mast Auto Tension
"NetWizz Std Auto Tension" is a machine for applying and removing bird netting in medium to large vineyards, orchards and anywhere crop cover is required. Netting is wound onto a simple spindle in an inter-woven pattern like a roll of twine.
Fast, safe removal of netting without tears
If netting gets caught the sensor automatically stops the spindle, preventing tears. The sensor automatically adjusts the spindle and wand speed to maintain a constant incoming net tension.
Shear bolt protection for top loop & mast
The NetWizz mast incorporates a shear bolt assembly which breaks a small bolt, preventing the top loop and mast from damage.
Self loading and unloading of netting rolls
Full spindles are loaded using the tractor’s 3PL. The tractor is simply reversed into the roll, with the aid of self-locating guides, then raised with the linkage. If required, an extra roll of netting can be carried on the two arms which slide out.
Automatic speed and netting tension
Netting tension is easily adjusted (by turning a screw) to suit different strength nets. Once the tension has been set to suit the netting there is no need to adjust it again.
Netting wound tight on steel spindles
Netting is stored from the vine on square steel spindles and end covers are fitted when in use. These covers have high sides and large sealed ball bearings for easy operation.
Controlled net unrolling tension
When feeding out netting to cover the vines, the spindle hydraulic drive is simply disengaged which allows the net to unroll. A brake can be lowered onto the roll, allowing it to unroll at a set light tension regardless of diameter and also prevents over-run.
For single and multiple row or full canopy cover netting
The NetWizz is a fully proven market leader. Safely handling different types and widths of netting, over multiple rows (shown left) or by rotating the top loop 30º to apply or remove from single rows and full canopy cover.
