In one quick pass through your vineyard or orchard the KCI Berm Sweep will brush debris from berms into the center of the rows. This allows you to get up to 100% effective use of your herbicide.

The brushes are available with all nylon or half steel and half nylon bristles. Swing-back arms and bristle flexibility help to protect the vineyard from mechanical damage.

The KCI Berm Sweep is easy to set up and easy to operate.

  • Optional flow control valve is available.
  • Optional front or mid ┬ámount available on ┬áspecial request.
