Cutter Bar – Single vs Double Sickle

Single Sickle(SS): Our most common, all purpose cutting bar, lightweight for trimming and pruning applications. ¾” cutting capacity, speeds from 1 – 3mph, but max speed is limited in dense canopies. The sickle bar guards/fingers protect the blade from hard objects and help retain material during cutting.  

Cutting Action: A single reciprocating blade cuts against black stationary guard. Equipped with premium Crary Hold Downs – easily set blade pressure adjustment via bolt, Nylatron wear pads for 3-4X life of regular hold downs, produces a smooth, rigid cut.

Double Sickle(DS): Highest quality pruning bars, very heavy duty construction, ideal cut quality from dual blade design, 1in cutting capacity, 5+ mph trimming speeds, 2 – 4 mph pruning. Ideal for vine/berry pruning, high volume trimming, or light orchard applications.

Cutting Action: Two lubricated blade bars reciprocating in opposite directions creates smoother, cleaner cuts, while minimizing vibration. The double sickle out performs in hard/dense material. For vineyard pre-pruning close to final spur position, the double shearing action reduces spur damage, less pulling during angled / bias cuts.
