Disc hoe (rolling shields) is specially designed to work close to
the crop row. It does not move the soil in the row, first hoeing of sown
vegatables (e.g. carrots) can be done as soon as the crop row is visible.
It is easy to adjust for precise treatment. Very light to push. Even
suitable of hilling on light soils.
Goosefoot hoe is the basic tool for hoeing. Weed Master hoe
includes parallel linkage, cushion spring and a gang gauge wheel for depth
control. Standard sweep is welded, flat 160 mm goosefoot hoe with straight
10x30 mm shank. Other sweeps, knives and wings available upon requeston.

fingers work also within the row between crop plants, which mostly makes
all hand weeding of planted vegetables (cabbage, leek etc.) unnecessary.
Normally area between the rows is first treated with goosefoot hoe, the
row area thereafter with finger weeder.
