Unique Weeder For Specialty Crops
For farmers raising specialty crops such as chili peppers, tobacco, watermelon, tomato, pumpkin, cactus or others, A1 Implements offers “The Weeder,” a uniquely designed hybrid weeding machine.
“What sets our equipment apart from the competition is that it’s made simpler, heavier and designed really well,” says Cody Arvin, one of the company’s co-founders. “Plus, it works well in a large range of specialty crops.”
The unit comes with an available PTO pump hookup for hydraulic connection or remote hookups. Machines use from two to four remotes depending on overall size.
    Hand hydraulic or foot pedal lifts are available for smooth operation.
The Weeder is available in 1 to 8-row models with row units adjustable from 30 in. to 72 in. Smaller units are also available. Larger units can cover up to 30 acres in an 8-hour day.
    Hydraulically-driven rotors with replaceable teeth are manually controlled, moving in and out of crop rows by the operators seated on the rear frame seats. Teeth last an average of 200 acres before needing replacement.
Machines can be ordered with varied toolbar designs and a lift capability of 3 1/2 ft. to work above higher crops.
The smallest Weeders begin at $5,900 and the larger models go up to $40,000 plus S&H.
“We have a few dealers but mostly to handle parts for us,” Arvin says. “We like to deal directly with our customers.”
