New Electrocoup Pruners, Roberts,Tasmania 2016

 Infaco launched their new Electrocoup electric pruner on the 8th of April, 2016 in France just in time for the Tasmanian pruning season.
  Keeping up with their traditional cadence of releasing a new model once every 5 years there were no surprises when the model was called the Electrocoup F3015. This model is tipped to be the next big thing with regards to power assisted pruning tools in the industry. It certainly is amazing when you look back on the last 30 years and the 7 previous models how the these tools have evolved.

Infaco has spent the last five years working on the new model improving the design and performance of the pruners and had been as tight lipped as ever on what the next generation would offer. Watch the video below to see some of the improvements that have been made,



The 3015 model is a significant evolution from the current 3010 design. While looking superficially similar, beneath the covers lies a major advancement in design, motor and circuitry, powered by futuristic battery technology.
