Fieldcraft Grafting Tools

Fieldcraft Grafting Tools

The Topgrafter and the Chipbudder are the result of extensive development and testing. A great deal of technology has gone into them that has produced accurate, durable, cost-saving devices.

Benefits Include:

  • Increased graft take from 50% to 90%.
  • Reduced training time for employees.
  • Reduced grafting time.
  • Utilization of the inexperienced personnel.

Both tools give exact-fitting cuts that ensure maximum cambial contact. The result is a strong, neat graft that takes quickly. They are faster and more accurate than a skilled grafter with a knife. A whole range of wood plants can be grafted, including grapes, kiwis, avocados, nuts, persimmons, pome fruits, stonefruits and many ornamental trees and shrubs.

The Topgrafter

The Topgrafter produces a "V" cut in the wood from 1⁄8" to 1-3⁄4" (3mm to 20mm) diameter without any adjustment. It can be used in the field or bench mounted. Blades remain sharp for up to 2000 to 3000 cuts, at 2 cuts per tree before resharpening is necessary.

The Graftech Topgrafter

The Graftech Topgrafter is a progression of the hand Topgrafter but has been designed to be solely bench mounted.

  • To be used in the "V" cleft grafting process.
  • Ergonomically designed to be comfortable for long hours of use.
  • Allows operators to sight the grafting stock prior to the cut.
  • Increases throughput and reduce staff cost.
  • Simple to use, untrained help can be utilized.
  • Can be powered and operated by a compressed air or by manual foot lever.
  • A compressor which runs at 5-10 cubic feet per minute, 2-3 horsepower, 60-50 psi with 100 psi being optimum, will operate a single unit.
  • Operators can complete 3,000 to in excess of 6,000 grafts a day.
