Dabayma manual shoot remover
The manual shoot remover is a tool used for removing shoots easily and quickly. Its face-to-face brushes, slightly inclined towards the stem, remove the shoots with a simple brushing action. It has a system to open the brushes according to the diameter of the stem.
Elimination of shoots or suckers appearing on the stem:
To properly get rid of shoots or suckers (or similar), you must ensure the brushes are properly attached from below, so that the shoots are properly removed from the front of the manual shoot remover. Once properly adjusted, the brushes must make pushing movements toward the ground so the shoots are removed by this action. The larger the stem diameter, the more the guides through the system must be opened, with the longer length brushes gripping the whole stem circumference.
Removal of shoots appearing at the base of the stem:
These shoots cannot be removed by the aforementioned action, because of their location. The manual shoot remover has a blade attached to one of the brush guides to remove such shoots. The base of the shoot should be cut with the bottom of the blade, both on the inside and outside of the blade (depending on whether the shoots are on the right or left side of the stem). The blade should be directed toward the base of the shoot and cut it there. The manual shoot remover can also be rotated to attack the shoot with the front or top of the blade.
