The system uses a patented conductive woven cotton/steel glove which the user wears on the non-pruning hand. This glove is connected by a cable which is then connected to the shear. When the shear comes in contact with the glove, it completes the circuit which stops the shear from working. Not only does the shear stop working but the shear is programmed to then fully open.
Agricultural safety for workers across vineyards, orchards, and beyond is one of the driving forces at Infaco’s research and development center.
To eliminate fear of hand injuries, workers can wear this cotton glove interwoven with metal fibers. When the glove is touched to any metal part of the Electrocoup F3015 – such as the shear's blade – the blades won’t budge. With the safety glove on one hand and the Electrocoup in the other, workers move swiftly through the rows, grabbing branches, and pruning with confidence without fatigue.
PLEASE NOTE WHEN ORDERING:
This glove is designed to be worn on the opposite hand from which you hold the tool. The glove protects your fingers on the opposite hand while working. For right handed people, order a glove for your LEFT hand. For left handed people, order a glove for your RIGHT hand.
Size 10 is the most common, but to get the most accurate size for your hand, please print the Glove Sizing Chart (do not print by scaling it to size the page). The fit is intended to be a bit snug as the glove will stretch and having loose finger tips is not ideal.
