F3020 pruning shears

The new reference

F3020

The F3020 electric pruning shear is the worthy heir to the F3015. After over 6 years of research, tests and fine-tuning, INFACO is proud to present its latest model of pruning shears. A genuine concentrate of technology, the F3020 builds on the highly respected F3015 technical base adding many improvements to allow our clients to continue using the best tool available on the market.

Even more effective than the F3015, the F3020 has higher cutting speeds and improved work comfort.

Lighter, more compact and easier to handle than the previous generations, the F3020 once again demonstrates the brand’s will to satisfy the greatest number.

Loaded with technological advances, the pruning shear can now be “connected” using an optional Bluetooth® box. This new system makes it possible to report highly relevant data in order to achieve ever more effective pruning work.

This connectivity option, combined with the new INFACO® application provides the possibility of making a multitude of adjustments directly from a smartphone (adjustable blade opening management, blade crossing, new Soft mode speed configuration, etc.) but also offers advanced reading and analysis of the data collected during the device’s use.

safety

01
DSES

Additional electronic safety systems

INFACO has always considered safety to be essential. A true pioneer in the 1990s, it has never stopped investing in cut prevention solution research for its user clients. Significant Research and Development resources were used to provide you an accessible, increasingly safe and innovating solution.

Today, the ELECTROCOUP F3020 has taken a further step forward. All our pruning shears are fitted as standard with the DSES Wireless feature : Additional electronic safety systems (wireless).

 

Standard Wireless DSES

This new wireless safety system is composed of a conductive trigger that makes the connection between the user’s body and the shears’ electronic system (INFACO patents).

As soon as the cutting head touches the opposite hand (bare or wearing a glove), the pruning shear blade opens instantly, thereby preventing accidents!

The Wireless DSES system operates on direct skin contact, however, everyone has their own levels of conductivity. So, to guarantee a high level of conductivity, the use of INFACO conductive gloves is nevertheless recommended. They increase the signal and provide better protection (see recommendations in the instructions for use).

Important: if you want to use gloves to protect from the cold, the system imposes wearing INFACO conductive gloves.

The use of INFACO conductor gloves is strongly recommended to :

  • Increase the safety system conductivity.
  • To make the reactivity consistent on the entire hand surface.
  • Reduce unwanted triggering on wet wood and/or wood that is too close to the ground.

For the DSES system to operate properly, wash the glove by hand at least once per week using clean, cold water without detergent.

Hard wired Dses option

Contrary to the Wireless system, the “hard wired” DSES option requires wearing an INFACO conductive glove. The glove is connected to a specific “hard wired DSES” power supply cable.

As soon as the cutting head comes into contact with the conductive glove, the pruning shears blade opens instantly, thereby preventing accidents!

The hard wired DSES system provides user protection while reducing eventual unintended openings on damp wood, sappy wood or very close to the ground.

For the DSES system to operate properly, wash the glove by hand at least once per week using clean, cold water without detergent.

lithium-ion battery
Ultra lightweight compact

The new Lithium-Ion Cobalt L100B F3020 battery weighs only 698 grams compared to 810 grams on the previous version. Its voltage is now 36 volts (compared to 48 volts on the previous F3015 model). The F3020 pruning shears are still 36 volt and 48 volt compatible.

Its sleek design and reduced volume provide a day of pruning without any recharges. With its multi-purpose carrying system, the F3020 battery is easy to slip into a pocket or click to a belt, and will very quickly be forgotten during your pruning sessions.

  • LITHIUM 108Wh battery
  • Weight : 698g
  • Full-day complete autonomy 8hrs*
  • Battery with built in electronic storage cell protection and management system (BMS)
  • High capacity LITHIUM cells
  • POWERTOOLS storage cell technology
  • So-called “High Power” “Long Life” smart cells

f3020 battery vest
4 possible carrying options

Designed to provide unprecedented comfort, the F3020 vest is highly ergonomic and easy to use. Thanks to the new straight cable system that ingeniously crosses the vest to the shoulder (with arm band) it becomes almost invisible. Benefit further from the lightweight sensations of your F3020 pruning shear and work all day without hindrance.

The battery can be carried 4 different ways:

  • On a vest with straps.
  • On the belt (without the removable straps).
  • Using a trouser belt clip.
  • Directly in the pocket thanks to its small format.

AIRFLOW Contact system
The belt has been designed to optimise air flow and therefore considerably reduce perspiration effects. The very small vest strap surface area
also reduces back perspiration.

New arm band :
New, easy to use quick fastening arm band.

charger
smart automatic

Quick charge : 2h

The worthy successor to the F3015 smart automatic charger, the brand new F3020 battery charger makes connecting easy.

The battery no longer needs to be taken out of the vest : for more practical use, now the battery is charged using a cable that directly connects the charger to the battery, making its use easier.

The F3020 lithium battery charger makes it possible to get a 90% charge in one and a half hours . Full charge is achieved in 2h (cell balancing included).

Battery wintering mode

“Long Life” wintering mode: used to switch the battery to long term storage status and optimise its service life.

Recharging is no longer required during the off-season. Just press the overwintering button at the end of the cutting season, operate the charger for a few hours and store the tool in its case till next season.

F3020 : a connected tool
The application will be available in October 2022 on IOS and Android

Thanks to the latest connectivity innovations, the F3020 pruning shear can be “connected” using an additional optional Bluetooth® box.

Follow work progress on your plots directly on a specific web platform and easily manage all the electronic settings.

Get all the actions on your pruning shear directly on the app: view your guarantee status, watch all the videos to properly use and service it and manage your tool assets with a few finger pushes.

THE CONNECTED BOX (option) / INFACO APP (free of charge) :

  •  Pruning shear settings
  • Use statistics
  • Tool asset management
  • Service / Help / Video tutorials

carbide burnisher

Get a cutting blade edge

The INFACO tungsten carbide edging tool maintains a good cutting edge on the blade. A sharp blade guarantees faultless cut quality and reduces the risks of spreading wood diseases.

As a supplement to the 2 recommended daily sharpening sessions, we advise that you use the new INFACO carbide burnisher. Using it every hour maintains the cutting side of your blade edge. Your cuts will be even neater!

For correct sharpening :

  •  Sharpen twice a day (using a stone or an electric grinder)
  • + Edge once/hour (INFACO carbide burnisher)
