With a low profile, smooth edges and streamlined defectors the Kuhn VK shredders will finely shred grass, vine shoots and prunings. Ideal for grape-growing operations, the VK models are available in working widths from 3’1” to 5’1”.

Run at high speeds, the forged steel heavy hammer knives shred clippings and vine shoots finely and cut grass impeccably. Recutting is carried out using three counter-knives, one notched and two straight. If desired, these shredders can be offset up to 8" to the right (depending on model) for shredding under or close to trees and vines. The rear roller, with a scraper, flattens loose soil or ruts and provides additional clearance. Cutting height is adjusted by the rear roller or steel wheels.
