Catepillar Range 

Vinvicta Services is excited to announce that we are now the Australian and New Zealand distributor for the German manufactured NIKO caterpillar tractor range, designed for high density viticulture. NIKO caterpillars are the tractors of choice in the great vineyards of the world. With already a strong footprint in Australia and New Zealand and increasing focus on quality and higher density plantings in these regions, the NIKO range is a must have tool for this type of viticulture. 

Vinvicta Services and AMOS

With the AMOS/Faupin company appointing Vinvicta Services to be the Australian and New Zealand distributor for the NIKO caterpillar, we gain over 28 years’ experience in managing high density vineyards using this system. Over this time AMOS have developed and adapted a large number of attachments for specialised vineyard work as well as integrating the Boisselet under vine equipment. AMOS have recently developed NIKO autonomous control for driver running for what will be a game changing innovation in the industry.
