“FreedomWeeder” Lets You Kill Weeds 2 Ways
The patent pending FreedomWeeder consists of a 44-in. long, 1-in. dia. schedule 40 pvc tube with a spot applicator at the bottom end, and a handheld trigger sprayer with an adjustable nozzle. The reservoir within the tube holds 20 oz. of herbicide.
The spot applicator is equipped with a double action valve and kills individual weeds by dabbing on a small amount of liquid weed killer. The valve dispenses about 1 cc. of herbicide each time you tap down.
The handheld trigger pump sprayer is connected to a feed tube via a brass elbow at the base of the tube. When you’re done using the trigger sprayer, you just attach it to the handle where it’s out of the way.
“The FreedomWeeder gives you a choice in how you want to kill weeds,” says Tuttle. “The spot applicator allows you to quickly dispense herbicide with pinpoint accuracy and works great wherever you’re using a nonselective herbicide and want to avoid killing nearby vegetation. It eliminates the need for any spraying or digging and greatly reduces the amount of pesticide released into the environment.”
He says the unit is made to last. “The tube is made from schedule 40 pvc, and the end caps on the top and bottom of the tube are made from schedule 80. All machined parts are made from solid brass or stainless steel, and are manufactured in the U.S.”
The FreedomWeeder is available through amazon.com or eBay.com and sells for $44 plus S&H.
