Hello to all of our Newsletter subscribers. This year has been a very different year for us in Germany. We have had the earliest flower ever. The vine growers in Europe are in the season now as Australia and South Africa is waiting for their next season.
CLEMENS - New equipment
A-FRAME:The A-frame is a tool carrier frame with mechanical adjustment to attach the RADIUS SL for working light soil, MULTI-CLEAN for weed control or the rotary brush for clearing out the suckers. (more...)
SB-MONO:One hand sided solution for different row widths with hydraulic width adjustment. Useful for RADIUS SL, MULTI-CLEAN and rotary brush.
COMBI-LIFTER:Lifter with 300 mm lift cylinder and side slope correction. You can choose between mechanical or hydraulic side slope adjustment. Mountable on HEXAGON and SB-FRAMES.
MOWER:A new grass mower, available in different widths from 1,15 m - 2,50 m all with hydraulic width adjustment. (more...)
Soil and stone deflector:To keep clean the cover crop of soil and stones. With parallelogram for ground adaption.
ATLAS:A new strong lifting pole for heavier equipment. Lifting height 950 mm.
Soil and stone deflector
FLEXITREE:A flexible, multiple brush placement system reduces the flowers to get better fruit.(more...)
PLANIERMEISTER:A new leveling system.(more...)
FLEXITREE, a design also known as ‘BAUM’ or ‘The Bonner’ for mechanical crop load regulation and based on the development by Dr. Damerow and Dr. Blanke and protected by international patent, is now CLEMENS GmbH & Co. KG in Germany.
WORKING PRINCIPLE AND INTENTION!In Heavy flowering fruit trees, FLEXITREE can remove excessive undesired flowers in pome and stone tree using several rotors with elastic strings. This application reduces the use of chemicals designated as (phyto-) hormones. The objective is to remove individual flowers of the flower cluster in order to improve fruit quality (fruit size, fruit color an sugar content). FLEXITREE offers a wide variety of options to adjust the device and its rotors to different tree heights and shapes and is particularly suited for tall and slender spindles, central leader and fruit wall.
DESIGN:The concept of FLEXITREE is based on a modular design. The standard version comes with three horizontal rotors with variable rotor speed, angle and height. FLEXITREE is mounted on the CLEMENS lift pole ‘ATLAS’ with a lateral inclination of 26° /18°. The front mounting offers the advantage for the tractor driver to observe the performance during the thinning motion.
ADJUSTMENTS:The standard version offers manual adjustment of the device to the depth of the tree canopy, with mechanical width adjustment (optional hydraulic). The rotors with their elastic strings can be individually adjusted in height and in angles towards the tree row and ground. Any incidence or risk of fireblight prohibits the use of FLEXITREE.

INTERNATIONAL DEALER CONFERENCE
We conducted our 2014 international Dealer Conference at our factory in Wittlich, Germany. We conduct these every two years. Representatives from Australia, Bulgaria, England, South Africa and Turkey attended this informational meeting.
This event reviews new and existing products, technical training, plant tours, brain-storming for better ideas and field demonstrations when able. The next conference will be in 2016. Contact us to reserve a spot.
