We manufacture trimmers for crops such as grapes and berry crops. Our products work best on vine-type crops where the branches are smaller and less thick.
The Trim-N-Prun cane cutter, our signature machine, has been built since the 1950s by vineyard owners Bill Bechthold (1929–2009) and his son Bill, Jr. The result of our many years of experience is a clean cutting, rugged piece of equipment. Its simple design, with few components, is easily maintained. Easy maintenance means low operating costs. Equally as important is ease of use. The Trim-N-Prun can be quickly adjusted for different vineyard applications.
The sickles throughout the trimmer make a nice clean cut that does not shatter the end of the cane. The knife and guard act like a blade and anvil on pruning sheers.
Mechanical or hydraulic adjustments are available. All hydraulic components are located on the frame of the trimmer for a clean, self-contained design.
All of our products are Made in the USA. We offer a 90-day warranty. We can custom build most pruning products you may need. We request a one to two week lead time (seasonality can affect turn around time). Please contact us for details.
We assemble all of our BTS models at our shop in Lodi, California.
