Giant “Clipper” Chops Down Tall-Growing Weeds
Driven by pto at 1,000 rpm’s, the big rig requires 2,500 psi hydraulic pressure. In transport, the machine folds down to 15 ft. It’s fitted with 15-in. wheels.
The Weed Clipper is designed for big organic or conventional farms, as well as custom operators. It was developed for use on the farm of the owner of Bourgault Tillage Tools in Canada. After 4 years of testing, it’s now ready for market.
It can be used to trim weeds in crops from 4 to 45 in. tall. The blades clip and mulch weeds, working at 5 mph in medium and heavy weed infestations and faster in lighter weeds.
