Demand for cordless flower thinning machines in Italy soars

"We are experiencing an excellent year on the market because of the high rate of interest from our loyal customers and the favorable weather compared to last season. The demand for ARVIPO AF100 professional wireless flower and fruit thinners has skyrocketed in the last few weeks," says Leonardo Carrasso, owner of Cormaf Srl, exclusive distributor for Italy, with dozens of sales representatives located in the main stone fruit growing areas.

"Orders have been arriving especially from Calabria, Emilia Romagna, Abruzzo, Apulia, Piedmont and Sicily. In addition to farmers, producer organizations are also requesting the thinning machines, and they make these professional tools available to their members. Our resellers have been receiving requests for 30-60 pieces at a time. Foreign countries are also coming forward, with a significant demand especially from Croatia."

The ARVIPO AF100 cordless professional thinner operates at 4 speeds and has a reversible shaft rotation. It is possible to use both the longer, more flexible rubber bands with a round tip and spiral-shaped bands on the same rotating shaft. The battery has an autonomy of up to 8 working hours. It is an innovative tool, which can also be used by people with less experience and by all genders, as it is light, practical, silent and vibration-free.

"This is the third year we've had it in our catalog," continues Carrasso. "The growth in demand is also due to an appreciation of operators for the usefulness and reliability of a tool that speeds up and automates the thinning of flowers and fruit without causing damage to the plant. The professional cordless thinning machine ARVIPO AF 100 allows to reduce working times and labor costs, in addition to guaranteeing extraordinary precision on the flowers or small fruits to be removed. As for sales prices, we have decided to maintain the same prices as in the last two years, despite the cost increase that inevitably also affects these electronic products."
