Three-Wheeler Super Sponge Wick Wiper
"It works effectively at speeds up to twice as fast as a rope wick applicator and covers in one pass," says the manufacturer of a new sponge-type weed wiper that's designed to replace rope wick and carpet-type applicators.
The dense cellulose sponges soak up chemical completely so that all surfaces of the sponge remain uniformly wetted. As chemical is rubbed from the outer surface of the wiper by weeds, chemical rushes to replenish the chemical and to maintain an even amount of chemical throughout the entire applicator. Sight gauge valves allow easy setting of the flow of chemical from the see-through 10-gal. polyethylene reservoir.
The 30-ft. wide model weighs less than 200 lbs. and adjusts in height from 2 in. to 4 ft. You can use it on most any crop at any stage from seed to harvest. Three-wheelers, motorcycles, light tractors or pickups can be used to pull it. The unit rides on narrow but heavy-duty sulky-type wheels.
The 30-ft. wide model sells for $1,995. Twenty, 15 and 10-ft. models are also available. Optional accessories include a wheel-driven foam marker and an adapter hitch for 2-wheel motorcycles.
