Mechanical Weed Puller
This mechanical weed puller is designed to pull tall weeds without using chemicals. Weeds are fed between a pair of pto-powered rollers which are said to pull 90 percent of weeds in one pass. An adjustable angle front feed belt guides the weeds into the rollers. The heads of tall weeds are drawn for-ward toward the guide belt by the action of a rotating feed reel. Weed gripping height is adjustable between 5 and 16 in. and working width of the machine is about 5 ft. Pulled weeds are collected in a hopper which can be tipped hydraulically at intervals. The hop-per can be removed to allow pulled weeds to fall to the ground.
Sells for about $15,000.
