Vineyards require a unique approach to farming equipment. Crop spacing and density make the use of traditional size tractors all but impossible and crop maintenance and harvesting require specialized equipment. To that end, Belkorp Ag sells all sorts of vineyard equipment in Northern California. From specialized narrow tractors to harvesters and mowers specifically designed for the unique confines of a vineyard, we have it all.
John Deere produces a range of specialty tractors designed to meet the specific needs of producers and even makes a couple of models designed with vineyards specifically in mind. The 5GV models are designed to work in rows as narrow as 39 inches while maintaining a tight turning radius of 11.9 feet. The John Deere 5GV can be had in both 75 and 90 horsepower configurations, providing plenty of grunt that makes them capable of not only handling chores between the vines but also anywhere else on the farm you might need them. Importantly, these narrow tractors come with a robust hydraulic system that pumps at 25 gallons per minute. This is enough power to run front mount and rear mount implements, improving your efficiency in the field.
If you have a few more inches between rows, you can opt for the John Deere 5GN which is still a narrow model but comes equipped with a cab that’s anything but confining. Featuring all-around visibility, doors on both sides and fully functional climate control, the cab adds a layer of comfort to long days and hard work that will keep you in the field longer.
To better serve vineyards in northern California, Belkorp Ag also offers a number of John Deere narrow tractors for sale via rental returns. These tractors may be used, but that doesn’t mean they’re worn out. Belkorp’s rental returns feature less than 250 operating hours and the highest levels of regular maintenance.
