Sometimes new customers ask: How did it all start at Damcon?
Well, that is a very long story that is almost 55 years old. A unique and original story indeed.
And with this photo, our story is a little easier to tell.
Because after the dirigible undercutting plough, the very first machine, Jan van Dam invented the Select tree lifter behind a 2-wheeled rotavator, in the accompanying photo without clamp. And the first pruning platform looked like this 45 years ago. And mechanical pruning, that’s what we invented this pruning machine for 40 years ago. And what’s funny, everything still works!
