What version of PostgreSQL are you using?

How many updates/deletes do the tables see between vacuums?

Could you show the table definitions, or at least the definitions
for the relevant columns and indexes?

What type is produt.codpro?  You might be missing a potential index
scan here due to mismatched types.

The times (2688.356..2875.743) here look odd, although I might be
overlooking or misinterpreting something.  I don't know what else
might cause that, but one thing that can is a lot of dead tuples
in the table, hence my question about how much activity the tables
see between vacuums.  Maybe somebody else can provide a better
