( Viticulture, France )
I have a total of twenty hectares, almost all Mediterranean vines, all with irrigation and Vin de Pays d’Oc label. Since my grandfather’s days, we can say we were the first customers. At the time, I learnt using the F3000, then we went on to the F3005, the F3010, the F3015, we never stopped. The last three models we took with the DSES options, for more finger safety. But I’m very, very pleased, there’s excellent reliability, they pack a good punch, the battery service life is long, there’s nothing else to say. The team is very friendly, very attentive and there’s a big effort to renew equipment even at the technology level. Lighter batteries, lighter machines, longer autonomy for pruning during the day. At the beginning, we had batteries that got weak at the end of the day and now we can prune for two days in a row with recharged batteries. And, as I was saying to my dad because he is of a certain age, at the battery weight level it’s undeniable. The weight is much lighter, it’s a real pleasure. That’s something you can’t take away from INFACO, the fact that they improved everything on all the systems: safety, battery, weight, the weight of the tool in the hand. It’s really great.
In one word : Reliability and trust, customer trust. All my mates use INFACO and I don’t think that’s going to change any time soon.
