#EnglishWineWeek Top 5 Vineyard Machines

#EnglishWineWeek Top 5 Vineyard Machines

To celebrate #EnglishWineWeek we've put together a list of our top 5 machines for UK vineyards:

Antonio Carraro Vineyard Tractors

Antonio Carraro Tractors
The Antonio Carraro Tractors range from 26-98hp. Offering a minimum width of 985mm, AC tractors are designed specifically to work in vineyards with a minimal steering radius & the lowest possible compaction. The even weight distribution reduces soil compaction within rows & avoids root damage. Popular with many UK Vineyards, the equal wheel distribution ensures the operator has increased stability, comfort & traction; especially on rough terrain and steep slopes.
