“The tradition of protecting and caring for plants and plantations goes right back to the early days of the company itself. It was founded on February 10th, 1948 in the wine producing area around Stuttgart, and the plant protection sector soon became one of the applications for the small and light two-stroke engine, which was then made by the fledgling business still trading under the name “Kleinmotoren GmbH”.
Vineyard owners in and around Stuttgart were justifiably impressed by how much easier their work became as a result of this new generation of appliances. This innovation finally made it possible for someone to work on their own, that is to say “solo”. This explains how the current brand name came into being in the early days of this family-run business. Today, the company is run by the second generation of the same family.
All that followed is closely linked to the name SOLO: mobile plant protection technology that enjoys the best of reputations – all around the world, be it in German gardens, the vineyards of France, cocoa plantations in Africa, cotton fields in Asia and coffee plantations in South America. SOLO appliances are also used to disinfect larger buildings.
In order to meet these diverse requirements, the range of plant protection appliances from SOLO provides everything you might need – from small, manually operated, 1-liter sprayers to highly capable backpack misters with large tank and powerful two-stroke engines. An extensive range of accessories rounds off our plant protection appliances.”
