One pass root pruning system
The Imants RootPruner is a one pass root pruning system that can prune roots up to 6” in diameter with minimal surface disrution and no need for clean up. The RootPruner’s unique action of cutting the root in two areas prevents root encroachment into vital areas, eliminates loss of valuable water and nutrients, and prevents surface damage. It also has the ability to decompact tight, narrow areas with ease. The RootPruner includes a unique patented triple-reduction planetary gearbox for smooth, maximum torque drive to rotor shaft. The RootPruner also features a factory set, torque limiting PTO shaft.
