New Holland introduces new destemmer mesh for its Braud grape harvesters
New Holland destemmer meshes provide the best harvest quality in every condition around the world; The new blue destemmer mesh is specifically designed for small grapes in low or medium yields. Winegrowers living in different areas of the world have different climates landscapes microorganisms yield grape varieties and they must adapt their growing and harvesting practices to local conditions across different geographies. New Holland is launching a new blue destemmer mesh to extend its existing range and provide every vinegrower across the world with a suitable solution in every condition. The on-board destemmer has been part of the New Holland Braud grape harvesters’ DNA since their launch in 2002. Available on all grape harvesters this system detaches grapes from stems and separates the detached stems from the grapes removing stem fragments petioles and leaves to ensure only the grapes go into the hoppers. This system improves harvest quality significantly. It can be easily mounted on every grape harvesters’ destemmer already produced. “When sorting grapes a grape harvester needs to adapt the meshing sizes to achieve the best sorting capacity removing all unwanted MOG (Material Other than Grape) to keep only the best grapes. By extending the mesh offering we are effectively giving our customers additional possibilities on their destemmer for targeting the sorting and obtain excellence with their grapes to make the best wines” says Philippe Boisseau Marketing Specialist for Grape and Olive Harvesters at New Holland Agriculture Global. The new blue destemmer mesh is the reference for small grapes Presented at SITEVI 2019 the new blue-coloured destemmer mesh features smaller holes to improve the harvest quality for small grapes such as merlot or cabernet. The new mesh improves the sorting of small MOG and delivers premium grape sample quality especially for the red grapes. This new destemmer enables a suitable machine throughput with mesh permeability. The blue mesh design with a higher number of smaller holes removes more MOG maintaining a suitably high capacity in average yields. A range of destemmer meshes for every condition With this latest addition New Holland extends its current destemmer range for Braud grape harvesters which now includes: Pink destemmer: 24 x 24 mm holes. It is the most versatile mesh and can work in all conditions. It is the first destemmer New Holland launched back in 2002. White destemmer: 29 x 25 mm holes. It is ideal for high yields or big grapes. This mesh ensures a high capacity and prevents fruit losses in these specific conditions. It was launched in 2018 and since 2020 it is also available for all destemmer widths. It increases the throughput for narrow destemmer frames. Blue destemmer 20 x 20 mm holes. It is ideal for small grapes in low or medium yields. New Holland has also designed a dedicated tool to switch destemmer meshes in less than 10 minutes for more productivity. The new blue destemmer mesh proves its worth in the vineyard Etav Chollet is a family run contracting business based in Saint Denis de Pile in France that specialises in vineyard work performing a variety of jobs including harvesting. The company run by brothers Pierre and Guillaume Chollet is a long-time loyal New Holland customer since their father purchased his first Braud grape harvester an SB36 30 years ago. Today they operate a fleet of three Braud grape harvesters – a 9070M Destemmer a 9070M Opti- Grape™ and a 7030M Opti-Grape – which are used for harvesting and multipurpose applications including spraying. The Chollet brothers tested the new blue mesh during the 2019 harvesting season. They were looking for a solution to meet their customers’ demand for higher harvest quality with attention to the removal of every piece of stem. The experience was extremely positive: “The harvest quality with the blue mesh has significantly improved with 2 to 3 times less MOG” explained Pierre Chollet. “We are pleased with the results we have achieved – so much so that we will equip our three grape harvesters with the blue mesh for the 2020 harvesting season” concluded his brother Guillaume.
New Pressure Washer Attachment for Bobcat Loaders
Bobcat has launched the new Pressure Washer Attachment for Bobcat loaders joining the Bobcat family of over 100 different kinds of original attachments. Bobcat is the world's first manufacturer to offer this kind of attachment for skid-steer compact track and all wheel steer loaders on the market.

This ensures it is quick and easy to connect it to the Bobcat loader allowing the operator to begin work with the new attachment immediately. The compact dimensions of the new attachment guarantee maximum efficiency and simplify transportation requirements whilst the front sprayer is adjustable to easily adapt to all types of work. Wide Range of Applications There are three different Pressure Washer Attachment models - the 250S 250M and 250L - to match different Bobcat loaders and to meet the specific requirements of the many different applications for the attachment which include: Roadwork and construction Disinfecting to protect against Covid-19 or any other kind of sanitization Cleaning furniture in parks and urban streets Maintaining railways bridges and tunnels Cleaning animal or poultry sheds Cleaning many types of machinery Daniele Paciotti Product Line Manager Attachments Bobcat in Europe the Middle East and Africa said: “Bobcat is now offering a Pressure Washer Attachment that ensures that cleaning streets signs and street furniture has never been so easy and effective. Wherever much larger dedicated machines cannot gain access or where the job must be done mechanically – the new Pressure Washer Attachment mounted on a Bobcat loader is the best way to clean surfaces. Excellent results can also be achieved when cleaning façades and roofs to clear waste and mosslichen for example.” The new attachment is also very versatile as the operator can either operate the sprayer from the cab or with a handgun for more targeted high-pressure water cleaning or sanitization of various objects. Daniele Paciotti added: “The washing handgun and accompanying 20 m hose reel provide an easy switch from the front sprayer to handheld washing providing an alternative solution for cleaning apartment entrances corners statues machines cars benches signs or in any tight spaces.” The 250S Pressure Washer model is intended for the Bobcat S100 skid-steer loader.

As well as ease-of-use the new Pressure Washer is also simple to clean getting jobs done more quickly and safely with consistent results. The absence of rotating parts in the High Pressure Pump increases durability and ensures low maintenance requirements.
BPH Enters Saudi Arabia Market with PRODEM Dedicated Shears
Recently purchased to demolish fire-damaged -metre high fuel tanks for a project in Jeddah Saudi Arabia the PRODEM PDS200R PDS300R and PDS400R shears were selected to connect with the crew’s high reach excavators. Given the strenuous work the shears will be undertaking the bolt-on piercing tip and blades which can be turned up to four times before replacement will ensure that service downtime is kept to an absolute minimum. Furthermore a reduction in cycle times thanks to an innovative speed valve regenerates power and protects the shear eliminating internal oil pressure peaks. This is set to be the first of many projects for PRODEM in the Middle East. As the world’s largest oil exporters the transcontinental region plays host to many disused tanks which have now been deemed more profitable to demolish rather than stand empty. Matt Bastable Sales Director at BPH Attachments which distributes PRODEM Attachments said: “This is our first step into the Middle Eastern market and we are looking forward to a long and successful relationship with contractors throughout the region in the future.”
