Home-Built Self-Propelled Weed Wiper
I made this self-propelled weed wiper a few years ago from an old John Blue sprayer. The wheels are shielded on the front edge so we can drive through tall-growing crops. The folding wick mounts across the center of the machine and is easily adjusted up or down with hydraulics we took off an "E" Gleaner combine. We use this rig very little now that we've switched to Roundup Ready beans and cotton. It has a 2-cylinder Wisconsin engine on it.
