Broadcast flamer (picture on right) is specially designed for pre-emergence flaming. Hood keeps the heat close to ground and protects against cooling winds.

Effective wind covers enable working during windy days as well. Burners can be mounted  also without wind protection cover for selective (directed) flaming of eg. onions, beets or cabbage.

 

WEED MASTER

Weed Master is a versatile tool carrier for seeding, planting, flaming, spraying and hoeing. It is specially designed for 0.1-2 ha vegetable fields. Within few minutes you can attach various weed control equipment in the same frame.

 

 


 

 

Row flamer (picture on left) has effective cover, that keeps the heat between the rows, without damaging the crop plant. Especially useful during rainy periods, when hoeing does not give satisfactory control. Suitable also for pre-emergence flaming on the row area.

 

Left below: The row at left has been treated two days before, the row at right is untreated. Both flamers have  effective covering against wind, that keeps the heat where the weeds are. All parts are made of galvanized or stainless steel.

 

Both flamers have effective covering against wind, that keeps the heat where the weeds are. All parts are made of galvanized or stainless steel. With Weed Master flamers, you are capable to treat 1-2 ha/day. Upon request, we can produce also special design to fit you particular need.

 

Hoeing


Several different hoeing components can be attached to Weed Master frame. For fields sized under 0.5 ha Weed Master hoes are effective and economical choice. Versatile adjustments, logical steering and easily visible tools enable precise and effective hoeing.
 

 


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.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 



Finger weeder fits to goosefoot hoe parallel linkage unit. Rubber 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.
