The DarwinPT was designed to work mainly in V-systems as we often find in peaches, plums and apricots. It is attached to a front loader directly or by forks. The spindle has a tilt angle of 180 °. This allows the DarwinPT to be lifted to the height of the tree tops and work horizontally over the trees. Should the open vase trees be very wide, there is also the possibility of tilting the spindle into the tree interior and thin there. The high tilt angle ensures that the sides as well as the crowns of the tree can be thinned.
