Handheld Grafting Shears
Item Code : SGS4-20R
The SGS4-20R is a slim jaw version of the original Scionon Grafting Shears. This model replaces the older model SGK3-19R. Model SGS4-20R has been introduced as an option for customers that required a tool to use when predominantly grafing medium to large diameters. This model is lighter in the hand and is similar to Model SGS4-22R (availabile in Europe) but has a new silm jaw.
The new jaw with solid spacer plates on the anvil minimises debris build up in the jaw allowing for easier cleaning without disassemly. Now with a jaw opening of at approximately 80mm, it is suitable for preparing whip & tongue and cleft grafts in larger material. It is also suitable for container grafting where a low graft union is desirable. The addition of a second grip plate ensures material is securely held when working with the larger 15mm - 20mm diameter range.
Model SGS4-20R is suited for preparing cleft, rind, wedge, whip & tongue grafts and the preparation of chip & 'T' buds in material of 8mm - 20mm in diameter. Skilled users will now be able to also prepare kerf grafts when the blade holder is fitted with an optional kerf grafting blade kit (pictured).
Supplied with adjustment tools and 2 spare SGS18 cutting blades.
Spare blade packs and an optioanal leather carry/ storage pouch are also available.
NB: Model SGS4-20R is currently only available from New Zealand. Model SGS4-22R is availible through Scionon Europe distributor partners throughout Europe.
